This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 78, Blocks: 38 Missing: {BCJKQWXZ} Spans: 3 This is puzzle # 3 for Mr. Guttormsson.
Jim Horne notes:

Let's call these 51 Ts the official record for most in a 15x puzzle, although Manny Nosowsky used an artificial April Fool's gimmick in 2000 to squeeze in 54.

Note that every answer here contains a T and every clue begins with T.
