Titans Home Opener catches fire but falls short to Indianapolis 19-17

The Tennessee Titans celebrated their home opener against the Indianapolis Colts with a pregame tailgate, and a jersey retirement ceremony for former players Steve McNair and Eddie George, at Nissan Stadium this Sunday The Titans had several pregame activities outside the stadium before the game including games for kids, free face painting, music, and a zipline. During the on-field pregame ceremony, one of the pyrotechnic machines caught on fire. Workers at Nissan Stadium had to grab a fire extinguisher to calm the blaze. The Titans held a ceremony at halftime to retire the jersey numbers of former players Eddie George and Steve McNair. McNair and George were teammates on the Titans for several years, including when they led the Titans to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXIV. During the ceremony, Eddie George spoke along with McNair’s brother. Steve McNair was tragically murdered in 2009, so several of his family members were there to honor him. While the ceremony was going on an artist painted a painting of the two teammates. The Titans also gave away free flags to fans to celebrate the jersey number retirement of McNair and George.

Women’s Soccer defeated thanks to penalty kick

The women’s soccer team was defeated by the Cincinnati Bearcats, 3-2 on Thursday night at the Lipscomb Soccer Complex, thanks to what would become a game-winning penalty kick. Cincinnati came into the game only having won one game this season; while the Bisons came in having won four of their last five games. The game started off with a goal by Bearcat forward, Han Tang, scored in the first three minutes of the game. The Bisons didn’t go away though; Lipscomb scored two unanswered goals before the first half was over. The first goal came off an assist by Bisons midfielder, Cami Rogers and scored by forward, Olivia Doak. The second goal came from an assist from almost midfield and again came from Rogers but this time to midfielder Kaitlin Echols who buried the shot. The second half was a different story for the Bisons. The Bearcats came out firing on all cylinders and scored the first goal of the half to tie it up. “It rattled us a little bit; it made it hard to answer at times,” Lipscomb coach Kevin O’Brien said about the way the Bearcats came out in the second half. After Cincinnati tied it up, they just kept pushing and eventually scored on a penalty kick thanks to a handball penalty. The penalty kick goal was scored by Tang, her second goal of the game. The penalty kick goal ended up being the game-winning goal for the Bearcats. The Bearcats outshot the Bisons in the second half, 12-4. “You got to give credit to Cincinnati, they were physical, tough, and in your face,” O’Brien...

Shortage of supplies at Starbucks

Shortage of supplies at Starbucks

As many students have noticed over the past week, Starbucks has had a shortage of their goods and supplies, including flavors, cup sizes and more. This has not only caused frustration with students but also with staff and management at Starbucks. Many students were impacted by this shortage, and several questioned why this was happening. “It’s so frustrating!” exclaims Katrina Hughes, a frequent customer at the University’s Starbucks. “I’ve started going to ABP to get my coffee in the morning just because it’s cheaper, and they actually have things.” The General Manager and Operations Manager of Food Services, Wolcott Fary and Anthony Bates, explain the situation, and why the shortage occurred. “It’s all about supply chain,” says Fary. Starbucks was due to have a delivery last week but didn’t receive anything until this past Tuesday, the 10th. This caused management to scramble for solutions, including borrowing from other local Starbucks companies, as well as utilizing the other food services on campus. However, this was only a temporary solution. In the meantime, management wants to compensate for students who were affected by this shortage. Bates, along with other management, have decided to print out vouchers for the students who were affected by the crisis, and is allowing Starbucks to hand them out to those they recognize as were affected. They note that service recovery is vital to them, and want to acknowledge the students’ frustration. “We try to do things that really do show that we’re partners…our job on campus is to take care of the students; that’s the only reason we’re here,” Fary says. Fary and Bates also acknowledged...
