    Rumors of AAC Having GOR or Uneven Revenue Sharing

    what's funny is Graceland is in a crap part of town...do the tour and get out by sundown. Beale St is very safe...so are the Zoo, Overton Square, and Cooper-Young. (<- where Memphians go) Take in a Grizz game, tour the Civil Rights Museum, or go see the Bass Pro Pyramid.

    because of that fact, Memphis has very good private schools....CBHS, MUS, Lausanne, ECS, PDS, Briarcrest, St George's, etc but lets not act like I didn't mention it...

    Rumors of AAC Having GOR or Uneven Revenue Sharing

    I will say Memphis' new Mayor has made crime and infrastructure his priorities... crime is dropping in Memphis: https://wreg.com/2018/04/17/stats-show-crime-decreasing-in-memphis-in-2018/ http://www.wmcactionnews5.com/story/38754817/violent-crime-numbers-drop-as-number-of-mpd-officers-rise-report-shows/ Memphis also brought back the PST (Police Service Tech) program so PSTs can take police reports, handle traffic accidents, and direct traffic for 13-14 an hour while Police officers making 55k a year can be free to handle the 'real' crimes. Memphis just opened the new 3 level 40/240 split at 109 million dollars it's our largest infrastructure project ever. Harahan Bridge was built across the Mississippi as a rail bridge in the early 1900s...tiny one way roads were added for cars: after the two newer bridges were built those roads were closed off and all but forgotten about. 25 Million was spent to modernize and reopen them to pedestrian traffic and it's become very popular and just today it was announced one of the hottest start-ups, Indigo Ag selected Memphis as it's world HQ bringing over 700 jobs to our fair city :-) https://wreg.com/2018/12/12/indigo-ag-inc-to-establish-north-american-headquarters-in-memphis/ they will join AutoZone, Service Master (Terminix, Merry Maids, TruGreen), St Jude, Le Bonheur, and the Grizzlies as major private employers with HQs in downtown Memphis.

    crime is an issue in Memphis and while we're at it...our public schools are mostly crap. That said, Memphis is a big city...there are nice safe areas with solid public schools. 38103 (downtown), which includes the South Bluffs, Harbor Town, South Main, and Beale Street is quite safe...38104 (midtown) is also safe and includes the Zoo, Overton Square, and Cooper-Young. You also have the East Memphis 38120/38119 area along with Germantown, Collierville, Bartlett, etc.

    FedEx/UPS/USPS Memphis is a cargo hub, not a passenger transit hub. Memphis was THE hub for Northwest Airlines until Delta got a hold of em...they have no interest in Memphis competing with their Atlanta hub.

    I love it here...lot's of jobs (FedEx, AutoZone, International Paper, St Jude, Regional One, Medtronic, etc), solid Infrastructure, inexpensive housing costs, great public utilities, and amazing private schools. Memphis is a logistical super-hub...River, Air, Trucking, Rail...we have it all.

    Memphis has really nice areas and really crap areas...this map is crazy accurate I grew up in the 'speed traps and fancy stores' between the $$ signs lol...I now live just left of the 'more doughnut shops per capita...' text and speaking of, I live right across the street from Bartlett Doughnuts and it's off the hook good :-) https://goo.gl/maps/2AemkuQ6uZQ2

    nah, I think I'll keep ours lol. It was kinda amusing since the local beat writer linked a tweet from Norvell talking about his future at Memphis and said something like "outside of ending the speculation right now, this doesn't sound like a guy who's leaving" 30 mins later Norvell tweeted him back "stop speculating...I'm not leaving" lol...we've never had a coach tech savvy enough to tweet someone back.

    Yup, Norvell tweeted he isn’t leaving...says he likes it at Memphis. That makes me a happy camper :-)

    Liberty U hires Hugh Freeze as new Football Coach

    they told them to join for all sports or leave...so they left. I think they MAY be willing to rethink that now if they truly want to keep FBS football. Buffalo, UMass, Liberty, Akron, and Kent have decent geography together.

    I wonder how long before Liberty hires Rick Pitino?

    cool beans! I really don't want to lose Norvell...I hear he likes to gamble...the UofM needs to open him a line of credit in Tunica and West Memphis just to insure he stays awhile longer.
