DougMatthews-UpdatedForklift Systems Sports Saturday with Doug Mathews
(Saturday 9:00am-11:00am)

Not many analysts in the midsouth have as much football expertise as Doug Mathews brings to the microphone every Saturday morning. It’s Forklift System’s Sports Saturday on 104-5 The Zone.

Mathews, best known for his 10 seasons as Running Backs Coach and Defensive Coordinator for the University of Tennessee, tells it like it is and lets you take show where you want go every weekend.

Forklift Systems Sports Saturday covers all the big games across the nation, including all the action within the Southeastern Conference. It’s the perfect preview before you catch your favorite team play Saturday afternoon.
 
And Coach Mathews does that with the best guests in the region:

Tony Barnhart – well known for his coverage of the SEC in the Atlanta Journal Constitution
Charles Davis – Former Tennessee Volunteer and now Big Ten Network and NFL Network analyst
Bobby Proctor – Former coach for University of Oklahoma and Big 12 analyst


Doug’s Background:

Mathews credited Bear Bryant and Bud Wilkinson as coaches who influenced the way he coached his players during the years he worked inside the game, but no one had as much of an effect as Virginia Tech head coach Bill Dooley. Mathews says Dooley furnished him with his first opportunity as an offensive coach and provided him with valuable information within the I-formation offense.

Titans Begin Expansion of Saint Thomas Sports Park

The Tennessee Titans will begin construction next week on an expansion project at Saint Thomas Sports Park, which will almost double its current footprint in Nashville’s MetroCenter neighborhood.

The plan includes 60,000-square-feet in additions, including a new building situated along one of the practice fields, and major renovation of spaces within the existing 75,000-square-foot building. Improvements to Saint Thomas Sports Park, home to the team’s practice facility and corporate office since its inaugural season as the Titans in 1999, will continue to transform the space into a modern, first-class building aimed at enhancing the production of both its football and business staffs.

Titans vs Chiefs Week 10 Primer

Titans vs Chiefs Week 10 Primer

It was a fun two weeks, much like most honeymoons, but it’s time to come back to the real world where your house payment is due, and your offensive line is still overpaid. Don’t get me wrong. In no way am I blaming Tannehill for the loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, but the offense has gone downhill each of the last two weeks after a promising performance against the Chargers to start the Tannehill era. The question is “why?”

B6B: Big 6 Takeaways from UT vs. UAB

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – November 2, 2019) In a first half that finished 23-0, somehow the score was far less entertaining than it looked, and it doesn’t look that entertaining.
