Geoff Calkins has been chronicling Memphis and Memphis sports for more than two decades. He is host of "The Geoff Calkins Show" from 9-11 a.m. M-F on 92.9 FM. Calkins has been named the best sports columnist in the country five times by the Associated Press sports editors, but still figures his best columns are about the people who make Memphis what it is.

The Memphis Tigers won't be going to the NCAA Tournament this year after losing to Houston Saturday. But Penny Hardaway's first team has earned both affection and respect.
