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 Tigers lost Alex Lomax to injury and got the shaft from the American Athletic Conference, but they rose to the occasion Sunday and won at Cincinnati for the first time since Derrick Rose led the team.
