ACADEMIC CENTER

Classroom Success is Top Priority The Student-Athlete Enhancement Center

at Middle Tennessee houses the academic support system and the Blue Raider Athlete Skills for Success (B.R.A.S.S.) Life Skills Program for all 17 Division I-A sports. The center is housed at Johnny “Red” Floyd Football Stadium on Raider Drive. The facility opened its doors on January 4, 1999, to the delight of student-athletes, coaches, and administrators. Blue Raider student-athletes can take advantage of the library-like atmosphere as they report for their required study hall hours under the watchful eyes of the director, Jeanne Massaquoi, and the assistant director and coordinator of B.R.A.S.S., Wynnifred Counts. The center consists of administrative offices, fully equipped individual and group tutoring rooms, a computer center, and spacious study carrels equipped with task lighting. Services provided by the center include help with regis-

tration and pre-registration, help with study skills, and updates on NCAA legislation. In an effort to accommodate student-athletes’ busy schedules, the center is open from 7:00 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday and from 7:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Friday. The center uses an innovative time-clock system activated by the student’s ID card for daily and weekly reports. Tutors in various subjects are scheduled in the tutoring rooms throughout all hours of operation, and all tutoring takes place only at the center. In addition to providing the academic support needed to be successful in the classroom, the center is committed to meeting the needs of student-athletes in life skills development through the very popular B.R.A.S.S. Program. As B.R.A.S.S. coordinator, Mrs. Counts is dedicated to helping prepare student-athletes for life after college. Blue Raiders volunteer,

when possible, to help teachers and students at elementary and middle schools throughout Rutherford County during the academic year. In the spring of each year, Special Olympics at MT uses Blue Raider student-athletes to run each event. Career night and substance and alcohol abuse seminars are yearly, wellattended events. Social events such as the Fall Welcome Back Picnic and the Spring StudentAthlete Ball are eagerly anticipated as the only times during the year when all student-athletes can be together. “We are very grateful for the cooperation we receive from our supervising office, Academic Affairs, from the Athletic Department, and from the faculty and staff throughout the MT community,” said Massaquoi. “The success of the center depends on this cooperation, and we have been very fortunate to experience an outpouring of support in our efforts.” The mission of the center is to help studentathletes take skills learned on the field and turn them into positive preparation for life after college. The center is also committed to meeting the changing needs of student-athletes. It continues to promote partnerships between the University, the NCAA, and the Murfreesboro community to help achieve its goals. The Student-Athlete Enhancement Center is just one way that Middle Tennessee is helping to prepare student-athletes for life after college. Programs such as B.R.A.S.S. help student-athletes learn to take personal responsibility for their lives after college and help them become self-sufficient. By taking advantage of these opportunities, student-athletes can get far ahead of their competitors in the game of life.

dBy December 2003, six of eight seniors in the program since Coach Davis’ arrival will have earned their degree. The other two are playing professionally and will complete their degree by taking classes during the offseason.

MURPHY CENTER Home of the Blue Raiders

Middle Tennessee is blessed with one of the finest basketball facilities and all-around assembly centers to be found on any campus. The Charles M. Murphy Athletic Center, completed in the fall of 1972, seats 11,520 fans for basketball and nearly 13,000 for concerts. The Blue Raiders packed in 11,380 rabid fans for a TV game against No. 3 ranked North Carolina in 1998 and packed the house again a year later when No. 6 ranked Kansas came to visit the Middle Tennessee campus. The facility got a major upgrade in the summer of 2003 when the original playing surface was removed and a new state-of-the-art floor was installed in its place. The floor was also rotated 180 degrees to better accomodate television broadcasts. Constructed in a perfect square, 320 feet on each side, Murphy Center’s exterior features a unique “window-wall” which gives it an appearance distinctly its own. The interior has three levels containing Monte Hale Arena (the main playing floor); a six-lane track; offices for both the Athletic Department and the Department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Safety; two auxiliary gymnasiums; dance studios; handball/racquetball courts; weight rooms; a training room; dressing facilities; and classrooms. The building is named for Charles M. (Bubber) Murphy, who coached Blue Raider football from 1947 through 1968, winning 155 games and losing only 63. He was the University’s athletic director for an even longer period of time and probably has had more influence on the evolution of MT’s proud athletic heritage than any other single

person. He was a charter member of the Blue Raider Hall of Fame in 1976. The main playing area is named in memory of the late Monte Hale, the long-time radio personality who originated play-by-play of MT basketball and football and was known as “The Voice of the Blue Raiders.”

Monte Hale Arena received a face-lift in 1995 with the installation of a new quadrilateral scoreboard, complete with message center and other features that match most scoreboards in the best known arenas in the country. Updated statistics and scoring totals can be flashed to spectators as the action unfolds. Murphy Center has hosted a wide variety of events over the years, including regional NCAA and Ohio Valley Conference basketball tournaments, University convocations and commencements, and innumerable concerts featuring stars such as Elvis Presley, Bob Hope, Bruce Springsteen, U2, the Judds, Garth Brooks, and a host of others. This outstanding facility has also been chosen on numerous occasions to host the showcase of Tennessee high school basketball, the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association’s (TSSAA) Boys and Girls State Tournaments, held annually in mid-March.

SQUAD ROOM

One of the Country’s Best Team Facilities The Blue Raider basketball locker room received a complete makeover in the fall of 2002 and has now become one of the top facilities in Division I basketball. Middle Tennessee head coach Kermit Davis spearheaded the effort to upgrade the Blue Raiders’ facility, and the results have been astounding. Entering the Blue Raider locker room, the improvements are immediately apparent. An etched glass door greets the players in the hallway, giving the entrance a first-class appearance. The latest addition is the Lynn Davis Squad Room, a theatre-style seating area for the players to watch film, hear discussions from the coaching staff, and conduct other team functions. “We have created an outstanding teaching environment for basketball in the new squad room. We feel the Lynn Davis Squad Room rivals any locker room and filming area in America,” said head coach Kermit Davis.

“We feel that the Lynn Davis Squad Room rivals any locker room and filming area in America.” - Head Coach Kermit Davis The squad room features a state-of-the-art projection system and an automated projection screen that allows the team to get a big view during film sessions without the bulkiness of a big-screen television. The room also features a high-tech sound system. New royal blue carpeting extends through the squad room into the team locker room area, giving a new feeling of continuity. The locker room features oversized wooden lockers with plenty of space to hold practice and game gear. The lockers also feature storage spaces under the seats, providing security for personal gear. Each player also has a padded stool next to his locker. The locker room features a large shower and vanity area. The coaches’ locker room is located just behind the team locker room.

STRENGTH STRENGT H & CONDITIONING One of the biggest changes in college athletics over the past few years has been the attitude toward strength and conditioning. Performing in the weight room has become just as important as on-the-field competition, and Middle Tennessee has one of the very best staffs in the nation and is committed to making student-athletes the best they can be. It all happens in the Blue Raiders’ 10,000plus square foot weight room facility located adjacent to the north end zone of Floyd Stadium and designed for use by all Middle Tennessee student-athletes. It is a strength training area that rivals any in the country. The weight room has been described by many people as better than any in the immediate area, including those at SEC and Conference USA schools. The facility, which opened in January of 1999, greets student-athletes with over 20,000 pounds of plates and dumbbells, but the sheer volume of weights is not the most impressive aspect of the room. It is equipped with nine full power racks, nine elevated platforms, and nine half-racks. Hammer strength equipment rounds out the room with five ground-base jammers, a dead lift, a leg press, a leg curl, and a leg extension. Other Hammer strength equipment in the facility includes a bench press, a military press, a rowing machine, neck machine, pull-up, and pull-over. An impressive array of dumbbells is also provided for the student-athletes’ use. Two sets each of dumbbells ranging from five to 150

pounds are kept on racks around the room. Mirrors ring the walls of the room to help student-athletes ensure that they are using proper form throughout their workouts. Cardiovascular equipment, such as treadmills and stationary bikes, is also available in the facility. Fringe benefits may also be found The weight room contains an impressive assortment of free weights, including a in the weight room. dumbbell area.

IN THE COMMUNITY Lending a Helping Hand

The Blue Raider basketball team is involved in several community service projects throughout the year. The team regularly participates in the National Association of Basketball Coaches Reading Program, Special Olympics, and many of the community service activities that make up the B.R.A.S.S. program. The team also puts on an annual basketball camp for the Boys and Girls Club, and the team even took a group of local kids fishing for an afternoon. Coach Davis is also very active in the community. This year, he is the co-chair of the Rutherford County Heart Walk for the American Heart Association. “I think it’s very important for our team to give back to the local community,” Davis said. “I think many of the kids in Murfreesboro and Rutherford County look to us as role models and we want to make sure we live up to those expectations.”

The Blue Raiders take part in the annual Special Olympics held on campus. Here, former Blue Raiders Marcus Mason and Bryant Mitchell, along wih Keith Connor, confer on a measurement during the long jump competition.

SCARLETT COMMONS

Apartment-Style Living on Campus Many of Middle Tennessee’s hard working student-athletes call the newest housing development on campus their home away from home. Scarlett Commons, one of the premier living arrangements at any university in the region, was opened to students in the fall of 1999 and provides apartment-style living with the convenience of staying on-campus. Nine three-story building with 12 apartments each and a useful clubhouse make up the Scarlett complex. Each apartment contains four private bedrooms connected by two private bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a comfortable living room. Each apartment is fully furnished. The kitchen includes a table and four chairs, microwave, refrigerator, stove, and oven. The living area includes a sofa, lounge chair, and television stand. Each bedroom is furnished with a bed, dresser, closet, nightstand, and desk with a hutch. Scarlett Commons even provides the mini-blinds for the windows. Each apartment also includes cable and phone lines in the living room and data lines with access to the Internet for personal computers in each bedroom. The Scarlett Commons clubhouse creates a real sense of community with its recreation/ meeting rooms, fireplace, big screen TV, and laundry room. Any maintenance issues are a mere phone call away to the 24-hour reception and service desk located in the clubhouse.

“Living at Scarlett has been fun. The apartments are nearly brand-new and I love having my own room.” Steven Jackson

Residents also enjoy the ease of using the Raider Xpress, the University’s shuttle busses, to make class on time. The Red shuttle makes stops in front of the clubhouse every 15-20 minutes and is a comfortable way to ride to the door of every major building on campus. “Living at Scarlett Commons has been a lot of fun; the apartments are nearly brand new and I love having my own room,” said senior Steven Jackson. “It was really easy to move in because all the furniture was already provided. My parents really loved that aspect.” Students living in Scarlett Commons have their own restricted parking lot so its easy to find parking in front of their buildings 24 hours a day. Each building has an assigned resident assistant on the first floor. These are student staff members who have the responsibility of helping residents with any difficulties they might have, as well as helping to get all the residents involved in activities across campus. “We strive to make living at Scarlett Commons an experience where students learn about living on their own and the social skills needed to interact with diverse people in their personal and professional lives,” said Eric Light, area coordinator.

THE UNIVERSITY

It’s All About Where You’re Going ...

The James E. Walker Library contains almost two million volumes and 250,000 square feet of space.

Founded on September 11, 1911, Middle Tennessee State University is the oldest, largest, and fastest-growing public university in central Tennessee. For the past seven years, MTSU has been the number one college choice of midstate high school valedictorians and salutatorians in an independent survey. The University has a long history of and commitment to educating middle Tennesseans. With a current enrollment of over 21,000 students, MTSU educates more people in this region than any other school. More than 90 percent of students are Tennessee residents, and the majority remain in middle Tennessee after graduation. Of almost 70,000 alumni, approximately 77 percent live in Tennessee. Since its establishment, the University has changed considerably, growing from a 100acre campus with 125 students and 19 faculty members to a 500-acre campus with more than 750 faculty members. A comprehensive university, MTSU offers more than 140 undergraduate programs in its five colleges—Basic and Applied Sciences, Business, Education and Behavioral Science, Liberal Arts, and Mass Communication—and some 65 graduate programs, including doctoral degrees. Middle Tennessee State University has revised its comprehensive, institution-wide Academic Master Plan to achieve three primary objectives: attainment of notable academic quality, development of a student-centered

learning environment, and establishment of partnerships with institutions and businesses. Over $200 million in construction projects have been completed on campus during the past ten years. The newest endeavor, the Paul Martin, Sr., Honors College building, is nearing completion. A teachers college in its earliest days, MTSU still educates more teachers than any other school in Tennessee. The University also has one of the largest recording industry programs in the nation; strong programs in business, aerospace, and agriscience; and a nationally recognized graduate program in public history. Among MTSU’s graduates are a Nobel Laureate; a National Teacher of the Year; a U.S. Senator; U.S. Congress members; state legislators; scientists; artists; engineers; and Grammy, Emmy, and Peabody award winners. A May 2000 music graduate, Alysa Cannon, holds the distinction of being the first MTSU student to participate in the Fulbright Scholar Program; she completed a year of research and study in Spain. Biology major Eric Freundt recently became the first MTSU graduate to be admitted to the graduate program at the University of Oxford in Great Britain. Academic programs are enriched through the establishment of chairs dedicated to the support of particular disciplines. Funded by gifts to the University Foundation, the Martin Chair of Insurance and the Weatherford Chair of Finance are administered through the Eco-

nomics and Finance Department. MTSU houses nine Chairs of Excellence, established with a combination of private, University, and state funds. They are the Jennings A. Jones Chair in Free Enterprise, the Jennings and Rebecca Jones Chair in Urban and Regional Planning, the John Seigenthaler Chair in First Amendment Studies, the Dr. Carl Adams Chair in Health Care Services, the National HealthCare Chair in Nursing, the Robert E. and Georgiana West Russell Chair in Manufacturing Excellence, the Katherine Davis Murfree Chair in Dyslexic Studies, the John C. Miller Chair in Equine Reproductive Physiology, and the Mary E. Miller Chair in Equine Health. MTSU is also the site of two Centers of Excellence established by the Tennessee General Assembly—the Center for Historic Preservation and the Center for Popular Music. Another boon to scholars is the Albert Gore Research Center, a repository of manuscripts and other materials.

MURFREESBORO

Tabbed Tennessee’s Most Liveable City In the heart of Tennessee lies Murfreesboro, one of the fastest growing cities in the state and the country. Murfreesboro is the home of Middle Tennessee State University and is at the exact geographic center of the state of Tennessee. Murfreesboro has a storied past and an extremely bright future. Founded in 1811, Murfreesboro was formerly known as Cannonsburgh. The name was changed to Murfreesboro after only 33 days in honor of the Revolutionary War Col. Hardy Murfree. Today, Cannonsburgh historical site, which includes a gristmill, one-room schoolhouse, town hall, log home, and church, is one of the most visited historical sites in the midstate. From 1817 to 1822, Murfreesboro served as the state’s capital. However, the capital was moved to Nashville because of its larger economic base and easy access to the Cumberland River. Murfreesboro has remained a major economic center since the city’s founding because of its geographic location: just 30 miles southeast of Nashville and around 90 miles from Chattanooga. Murfreesboro has also seen tremendous growth because of its proximity to interstate highways. The population of Murfreesboro, approximately 68,816, allows citizens to live in a relatively large city with a small-town atmosphere. Rutherford County has more than 194,000

residents. It is the fastest growing in the state and the fifth fastest growing in the South. Economic growth has boomed almost as fast as the population. The Murfreesboro/Rutherford County area has attracted major manufacturing companies such as Nissan, Bridgestone/ Firestone, Georgia Pacific, Hewlett-Packard, Dell Computers, and Aladdin. Shopping centers have doubled in number in the past 10 years, and Murfreesboro is one of the largest cities in the country in terms of restaurant-to-people ratio. For the history buff, there are several sites in and around the Murfreesboro area to visit. The 500-acre Stones River National Battlefield was the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War and can be visited year-round. Oakland’s historic site, the Sam Davis home, Fortress Rosecrans, and Cannonsburgh Village are open to the public and recreate the rich history of the area. Parks and recreation are top-notch in the area. Murfreesboro alone boasts four golf courses: Old Fort, Indian Hills, the VA golf course, and Stones River Country Club. In addition, the area also has several other courses, including Smyrna Municipal, Cedar Crest, Champions Run, and Blackberry Ridge. McKnight Park is the home of SportsCom, softball fields, baseball fields, and soccer fields. Oaklands Park includes a 25-acre historical site, picnic areas and baseball fields. Old Fort Park includes picnic areas for relaxation, baseball fields, tennis courts, and a golf course. In addition to all the parks in the area, the Stones River Greenway is a great way to enjoy a walk, jog, bike ride, or skate on a beautiful scenic trail parallel with the Stones River. If rest and relaxation is not what you are looking for, there are several ways to stay entertained in Murfreesboro. Jazz Fest, Uncle Dave Macon Days Festival, and the International Grand Championship Tennessee Walking Horse Show are just a few annual events that attract thousands of visitors to the area. The Nashville Super Speedway is located close to the Rutherford County line, and is the host of several races, including a NASCAR Busch Series race.

Expanding population and increasing growth have made Murfreesboro a vibrant community. However, growth has not left behind the core values that have made Murfreesboro one of the area’s most preferred cities in which to live. With all indications pointing toward a continuation of the area’s growth, Murfreesboro will maintain its place among the state’s most outstanding and livable cities.

AROUND THE ‘BORO d Fifty percent of the nation’s population is within a 650 mile drive of Murfreesboro by way of three nearby major interstate highways.

d Rutherford County has 194,934 residents and has grown 61.9 percent since the 1990 census.

d Nashville and its surrounding counties are home to 1.27 million people and have seen 29.1 percent growth since the 1990 federal census.

THE MIDSTATE AREA

State Capitol Only 30 Miles Away In recent years, Nashville, Murfreesboro, and the surrounding counties have become some of the most popular relocation areas in the United States. In terms of entertainment, sports may now be as popular as country music. The area is now home to the NFL, NHL, and boasts a NASCAR Superspeedway. Of course, country music continues to be the heartbeat of Nashville. Many record labels and performance rights organizations maintain their bases of operations on the “Third Coast.” Residents and tourists alike enjoy visiting the downtown Nashville area known as The District. The area along Second Avenue, which parallels the Cumberland River, features several nationally known hot spots. The Hard Rock Café is located in this area, along with other restaurants and shops with a distinctively local flavor. Gaylord Entertainment Center, located at Broadway and Fifth Avenue, is home for the Nashville Predators of the NHL. The Coliseum, the home of the Tennessee Titans NFL franchise, is located just across the river and is

readily accessible from the downtown area. The Frist Center for the Visual Arts, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Ryman Auditorium (former home of the Grand Ole Opry), and the Tennessee Performing Arts Center are all popular destinations. Adjacent to the downtown area is Music Row, where many of Nashville’s record labels and recording studios operate out of historic buildings. History buffs should also remember that the middle Tennessee area is home to a number of Civil War battlefields, museums, and military cemeteries. The Hermitage, home of President Andrew Jackson, is in Nashville. In Murfreesboro, the 584-acre Stones River National Battlefield, site of a crucial Civil War battle, is believed to have the oldest Civil War monument still standing in its original location. The seat of Tennessee’s government is located in Nashville with the State Capitol building and Bicentennial Mall just north of downtown. If shopping is your bag, middle Tennessee offers a wide variety of wares. Nashville’s Farmers Market has a cornucopia of seasonal, ethnic, and exotic foods. Opry Mills, adjacent to Opryland Hotel, is a shopping and entertainment complex that includes an IMAX theater. Numerous malls with the latest in fashion are located in the area along with antique shops, art dealers, and old-fashioned flea markets.

FAST FACTS d Nashville’s population is 570,000 with over one million living in a one-county radius of the city. d Of MT’s 70,000 alumni, 25,000 live in Davidson and Rutherford Counties. d In the past few years, Nashville has hosted such prestigious events as the NHL Draft, the Music City Bowl, and Men’s and Women’s NCAA Tournament games.

BLUE RAIDER TRADITIONS Ride on to Victory

Legend of Lightning In Greek mythology, the winged horse possessed superior cunning and speed. The thundering horse of the gods was entrusted to carry awesome lightning bolts and could only be harnessed by a noble being with a pure heart. Character, talent, and strength were required to mount and ride the fabled winged horse. Today, this winged horse is a fitting symbol of a university that has earned its wings and excels in many academic arenas, including historic preservation, teacher training, aerospace, political science, horse science, and recording industry. But the winged horse is more than a symbol of physical accomplishment; it’s also a symbol of character and the responsible wielding of power. The challenge of all great universities and university athletic departments is to help studentathletes build character and strength. Our winged horse, Lightning, is a symbol to Middle Tennessee students, athletes, and alumni of the soaring school spirit they ex-

veiled along with an attractive, eye-catching logo, at a basketball game in Murphy Center. The introduction of Lightning gave a new identity to the nickname Blue Raiders.

Blue Raider Nickname In the early days of athletics at Middle Tennessee State University, the teams were known by several nicknames. Among these were Teachers, Normalites, and Pedagogues. In 1934, it was decided that the school needed a specific nickname. During football season that year, the Murfreesboro Daily News Journal held a contest to name the team. The late Charles Sarver, then a Middle Tennessee football player and later principal at White County High School in Sparta, Tenn., won the $5 prize for his entry of “Blue Raiders.” Sarver later indicated he had “borrowed” the nickname of the Colgate Red Raiders, but substituted MTSU Blue for Colgate Red. Ever since then, Middle Tennessee athletic teams have been known as the Blue Raiders. The symbol of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest on a horse was first used about 1945, when then-University President Q.M. Smith instructed Public Relations Director Gene Sloan to use the figure in conjunction with the nickname. In 1965, the Associated Student Body established strict specifications regarding the size of the student who would emulate Forrest. It is believed that this was done because there was only one uniform available and a “good fit” was desired. Later, in sensitivity to the African-American community, the figure of General Forrest was abandoned. For a time, the “unofficial” mascot for the Blue Raiders was a costumed, cartoon-like dog. A reasonable facsimile of a bluetick hound, the affable character was dubbed “Ole Blue.” On January 17, 1998, the current mascot, “Lightning,” was born. The mascot was un-

The Middle Tennessee athletic department unveiled its new logos (above) on January 17, 1998, before a packed house at a basketball game. The athletic department primarily uses the MT logo as opposed to the horizontal Blue Raiders logo. The MT horse logo was designed by Chris Brady.

BLUE RAIDER NETWORK Dick Palmer Dick Palmer is in his 23rd season of calling the play-by-play action of Middle Tennessee basketball. Palmer, a 1960 graduate of MT, has been broadcasting sporting events for the past 30 years. From 1971 until his return to Murfreesboro, he was the voice of the Memphis Blues Class AA baseball team, the Memphis Pros (later the Tams) in the American Basketball Association and the Memphis Grizzlies in the World Football League. Earlier, he worked in Jackson, Tenn., for nine years, broadcasting a wide range of high school sports, and Union University’s basketball games. Palmer, who cohosted the first sports callin show in Nashville in the mid-’70s, was the studio host for Vol Network football broadcasts for five years and has called the TSSAA Basketball State Tournament on the Tennessee Sports Radio Network every year since 1982. A Little League baseball coach for over 37 years, Palmer is the operations director for Palmer Wholesale Co. Palmer and his wife DeLois have three sons, Richard, Mike, and Jon, and two granddaughters, Kaitlyn, 7, and Abigail, 1.

Jan Stauffer Jan Stauffer, a former Blue Raider assistant coach, is in his 13th season of providing color commentary to Middle Tennessee basketball. Stauffer, who is currently the principal at La Vergne High School, was an assistant coach at Indiana under Bob Knight from 1973 to 1976 before taking an assistant’s job at MT from 1976 to 1980 under Jimmy Earle. While Stauffer at Indiana, the Hoosiers went 86-6, won three Big Ten titles, and won the national championship in 1976 with a 32-0 record. Stauffer helped in the recruiting of Larry Bird. Bird was signed and on campus for three months, but left IU because of homesickness. At MT, Stauffer was responsible for recruiting one of the best players to ever don a Blue

Raider uniform in Jerry Beck, while helping the team to three winning seasons. Stauffer began his coaching career in 1966 as a graduate assistant at Ball State. In 1970, Stauffer became the head coach at Miami Trace High School and led them to a league, sectional, district, and regional championship in 1973. During his coaching career, Stauffer has coached six players who went on to the NBA. The Lima, Ohio, native, received his doctorate at Indiana in 1981 and now resides in Murfreesboro.

Gary Millsaps Gary Millsaps, a Middle Tennessee alumnus and longtime supporter of Blue Raider athletics, has served as the Blue Raider Network statistician for basketball since the 1994 campaign. Millsaps has been on board with the network since 1987, however, when he began serving as the statistician for Blue Raider football broadcasts.

Millsaps received his bachelor’s degree from MT in 1970 and earned his master’s degree in 1971. Both of his degrees are in the area of rehabilitation counseling. Millsaps works for the state of Tennessee as a program coordinator in vocational rehabilitation and is also active in youth baseball. He has been an active member of Murfreesboro’s Optimist Little League program for 21 years. Although he has been associated with the program in many different capacities throughout the years, Millsaps’ most recent duty was to act as the league’s T-ball commissioner. Millsaps and his wife Janice reside in Murfreesboro. The couple has two sons, Travis and Scott.

Gary Millsaps, Jan Stauffer, and Dick Palmer (L-R) provide coverage of all Blue Raider basketball action this season on the Blue Raider Network.

However, the Kermit Davis Show will not be the only Blue Raider programming that CSS will be providing this season. The network has already agreed to air the Sun Belt’s ESPN Regional games this season in both basketball and football. Comcast Sports Southeast came on board as a part of the ESPN deal in 2002 when the TV package was announced at the Sun Belt football media days in New Orleans.

Perhaps the biggest announcement in the recent history of the Sun Belt Conference came in July of 2002 when the league announced a new agreement with ESPN Regional to air several Sun Belt contests throughout the year. The agreement spans six years beginning with the 2002-03 academic year and continues through 2007-08. The contract features a combination of regional telecasts of basketball and football produced through ESPN Regional Television as well as national football exposures on ESPN and ESPN2 beginning in 2003. Upon announcing the contract, Sun Belt Commissioner Wright Waters said, ”We are thrilled to continue our longstanding The new ESPN package relationship with ESPN. This is a significant step for Sun Belt basketball forward ... and our Confer- is another great step in ence as a whole stands to establishing our league benefit tremendously from as one of the finest in this agreement.” The Sun Belt Confer- America. ence has a long and storied Head Coach Kermit Davis history with ESPN, and the latest deal is merely an extension of this ongoing relationship. The league has maintained a relationship with the World Wide Leader in Sports for 23 years, signing the first long-term contract with the network in 1979. The ESPN agreement also ensures that the men’s basketball tournament championship game will air through the 2007-08 season. The Sun Belt Conference is the only league in the nation that has had it’s men’s title game air on the network in each of ESPN’s 23 years of programming. Blue Raider head coach Kermit Davis was quick to point out the impact that an ESPN agreement will have on his team. “The new ESPN package for Sun Belt basketball is another great step in establishing our league as one of the finest in America,” Davis said.

He’ll be the only guy the mix of players. We feel like we got three that’s ever played in a Division I game at Middle good high school players in Alex Weekes, Tennessee. Really we can call them forwards, Bryan Smithson, and Ben Britt. They’re all good because we don’t have a true center on the athletes that fit in well with what we want to team. I like their talent level, but it’s just going to be a big change from high school or, in the do.

Belt was ranked the #9 conference in recruiting this year. I think, especially only taking eight teams to the conference tournament, it’s going to be unbelievably competitive just to get into the conference tournament. After going through it for a year, I feel we do have a better understanding of what it takes to be successful. I think the depth in the league is very good. Just look at Florida International, which was the last place team in the league. They were leading Western Kentucky with about eight minutes to go on their home floor in the conference tournament. I think that tells the story of the league. A lot of lower-rated leagues in the country can’t do that. The talent gaps in those leagues are just too wide. Western Kentucky should be the favorite on our side, but, bar none, UL-Lafayette will be the most talented team in the league. There are a lot of good returning players and I think it’s going to be good from a fan interest standpoint, because I really think that our fans are beginning to identify with the other teams in the Sun Belt.”

SCHEDULE “The schedule will be demanding on a lot of our new players. We’re going to Cincinnati and we’re playing Wyoming home-and-home. Wyoming has been in either the NCAA or NIT the last three years and beat Gonzaga two years ago in the NCAA Tournament. We’re going back to Rice, which won 18 or 19 games and is supposed to have one of the best teams that they have had in years this season. We’ll also have the rivalries with Tennessee Tech on the road and Austin Peay at home. We’re

2003-04 BLUE RAIDER BASKETBALL

also having a home-and-home series with Alabama State. The schedule is very, very good and we’ll take some lumps early. I do think that when we defeated Western Kentucky at home last year, our guys weren’t surprised by the talent level because we had played Purdue and Alabama and some other teams that had put us in some very physical games. It got us ready to start playing in the conference.

POINT GUARD “I think we have really good depth at the one. Keith Connor nursed an injury at the end of the year, but I think he has had a very good summer strength and conditioning-wise. We think Bryan Smithson is going to become an excellent player for us. He’s very athletic. And Mike Dean can play at the one or the two. This year it’s a good feeling to know that we’ve got three or four guys who can handle that spot.”

WINGS “Our twos and threes, our wings, are all about the same. The three-man goes and rebounds while the two-man gets back defensively, but other than that everything is pretty much the same. You’ve got to start with Tommy Gunn, who I think will vie with James Moore (from NMSU) for preseason Player of the Year. Tommy had a very good spring and has worked extremely hard this summer. He’s a marked guy this year. He’s the guy that everyone is looking to stop, so he’s going to have to be an even more improved player. Michael Cuffee is a great addition at small forward. He is a proHead Coach totypical three. He’s 6-5, Kermit Davis 210; he’s strong, can shoot, and can handle the basketball. Mike Dean is a very skilled player who can shoot and create his own shot off the dribble. Keith Connor can also swing to the two, giving us another shooter. Ben Britt is a young guy who is going to develop very well in our program. We can play Darrio Scott at the three, but he will probably spend a lot of his time at William Pippen’s position from last year. We might even look to play four of those guys together sometimes and go small. We could have four perimeter guys with a big guy on the floor some this season.”

FORWARDS “We don’t really have a center, we just have forwards. I like our young guys. I think they’re going to be good players, they’re just inexperienced. But that’s what we chose to do. Kyle Young has changed his body unbelievably in the last year. He’s 6-10 and has gained 20 pounds. Alex Weekes is going to be as athletic as any young guy in our league. Alex is raw, but he possesses a great deal of ability. Steven Jackson is our only experienced guy, and I think he’s going to give us good leadership down there. I told Steven that any guy that can get 15 points at Alabama can be a good player in our league. Steven has to become a more determined rebounder. Keith Christmas has toughness and will give us needed physical play at the four and five. Darrio Scott, who moved to the four in practice late last year, got a lot more comfortable. He was a lot better defending at the four. Darrio has to get this great body he possesses into the game. He’s a transfer from George Washington who’s about 6-6, 225. We like our blend, but it will just be interesting to see who separates themselves.”

I think our team is going to be fine, but people are going to have to be patient with our team and enjoy the fact that, even though these young guys are going to have ups and downs, they’re in it for the long haul. We will have to Guard Keith Connor

rely heavily on Tommy, Keith, and Steven for direction and making us a very good practice team.”

KEYS FOR SUCCESS REBUILDING “It was nice for our program, our fans, and our team that we gained a good bit of respect for the way we played last year. It was evidenced by the fact that we got invited to play in the Bracket Buster. We lost four starters and the conference thought enough of how we play and the discipline in our team that we were one of the four teams that got invited. We weren’t able to play because of conflicts in our schedule, but it’s a nice thing to know that people are starting to take note of our team and how we play. When we took this job, and I really knew it, that we were essentially going to have to rebuild twice. Last year we had a group of veteran players, but everyone was starting new. This year, we’ve lost five of those players and we’re almost starting over again with young guys.

“Our guards are going to really have to be good early. They’ve got to take care of the ball, defend, and be good in the open floor because this young front line is going to take some time to get adapted. They’re all going to make a ton of improvement, but the guards are going to have to carry us early. It will be interesting to see who comes to the forefront and adapts to the physical play. On the other hand, your freshmen will have to gain confidence along the way. This preseason schedule is going to be good for them. They’re going to find out early where they are and the level [at which] they need to perform. From a mental standpoint, its going to be all about who can take the tough practices and the grind. I like the leadership on our team. Last year, we didn’t know where we were, even though it ended up being strong as the year went along. But Tommy, Keith, and Steven will do a good job. Mike Dean’s recovery is going to be a factor for us. He’s made great progress in his rehab to this point. Keith Christmas’ knee injury is a question mark. He’s recovering, but can he get back to the athletic player that he was? Those things are uncertain, but it will be exciting to watch our progression.”

KERMIT DAVIS

2003 Sun Belt Coach of the Year When Athletic Director Boots Donnelly introduced Kermit Davis, Jr., as the schools’ 19th men’s basketball coach, he said that he felt that he had hired the right person to return the program to past glory and once again contend for conference titles and NCAA Tournament appearances. “I wanted to bring someone in here that wanted to be here, not just to be a head coach, but who wanted to take over our program,” Donnelly stated. “I wanted a person that believed very, very strongly in discipline, because that’s the process that gets it all started. I wanted a heck of a recruiter, and I also wanted a teacher. I think we fulfilled every one of those things with Kermit Davis, Jr.” It only took one season for Donnelly’s words to prove prophetic. Davis took a Blue Raider team that was picked fourth in the Sun Belt’s East Division and eighth out of the team’s 11 teams and put them in the thick of a division title race that didn’t end until the final week of the season. For his efforts, Davis was named the Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year, marking the second time in five years as a Division I head coach he has been so honored. Davis didn’t stop there. He took his team to the finals of the Sun Belt Tournament, put together the most wins for a Blue Raider squad since the 199798 campaign, and mentored two All-Sun Belt players. Davis’ reputation as a top-flight recruiter was certainly upheld as well. The Blue Raider coach hauled in three of Tennessee’s top 20 players, one player ranked in the top 55 nationally, and a transfer from Georgia who was one of the nation’s top shooting guards out of high school. The team’s recruiting class was ranked #32 nationally and #1 in the Sun Belt by Hoop Scoop magazine. Ron Briscoe’s Southeast Regional Basketball Report ranked the Blue Raider recruits as #23 nationally and #10 in the Southeast. Davis brings the credentials that

Donnelly was seeking to Middle Tennessee. He has shown throughout his career the ability to rebuild programs and put them on the national map in a hurry. He has displayed success at every stop along his career track and has done so with a hardnosed style of defense, uptempo offensive play, and a work ethic that is second-to-none. “One thing our team will do is play with a great deal of energy,” Davis stated. “We would like to play a hard-nosed, aggressive style that our fans will enjoy watching night in and night out. We’re going to share and value the basketball, rebound on both ends, and attempt to get a quality shot on each possession.” Davis’ strategic knowledge isn’t his only weapon in building a competitive program. The Blue Raider skipper has long been known as an outstanding recruiter who is willing to go after the nation’s top talent. His recruits value characThe Davis Family (L-R): Claire, Betty, Kermit, and Ally ter, have a high level of toughness, and have a desire to ob- Southeastern Conference. It didn’t take long for the team’s fortunes to tain a college degree. He is committed to landing the state’s top pros- change. After two seasons of putting the pieces pects as well as reaching out to together, the Tigers captured the SEC title in the best players in the region and 2000 and went on to an appearance in the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16. The Tigers rein the country. “Our state has produced turned to the postseason in 2002 with a trip to some outstanding players over the National Invitational Tournament. In the the years, and we are going to three years immediately preceding Davis’ arbe very aggressive in our ap- rival in Murfreesboro, LSU averaged 20-plus proach to keeping those play- wins per season. Davis said of his time with the Tigers, “I eners at home,” said Davis. “The quality of high school and junior joyed five years at LSU working with a close college coaching in our state is friend and one of the outstanding coaches in excellent and we would like to be college basketball in John Brady.” Prior to LSU, Davis spent one season as an extension of the parents and the coach when those student- head coach at the University of Idaho.

2003-04 BLUE RAIDER BASKETBALL

onship in 1989 and went on to capture the league’s tournament crown and a berth in the NCAA Tournament as well. For his efforts Davis was named the Big Sky Coach of the Year at the end of the season. History repeated itself in 1990 when Davis once again led the Vandals to the Big Sky title in both the regular season and tournament, garnering another NCAA berth. In fact, Davis himself made history when he became the Vandals’ head coach in 1988. Upon his hiring, Davis became the youngest Division I head coach in the nation at age 28. However, it was not the first time that Davis had been the youngest coach in the country. When Davis took the head coaching position at Southwest Mississippi Junior College in 1984, he became the youngest junior college coach in the nation at age 24. His youth served him well at Southwest Mississippi, where he put together a 39-20 record in two seasons. His 1986 squad won 22 games, the school’s first 20-win season in 17 years. His success at the junior col-

lege level landed him a spot on Tim Floyd’s staff at Idaho, where he served as an assistant for two years prior to taking the reins of the Vandal program. After spending the 1988-89 and 1989-90 seasons at Idaho, Davis went on to become the head coach at Texas A&M for the 1990-91 campaign. From Texas A&M, Davis moved Chipola Junior College to serve as the associate head coach at for two seasons before ascending to the top spot for the 199394 campaign. During Davis’ season as the team’s head coach, Chipola finished the season ranked #4 in the national polls and posted a 27-5 record, the second-most wins in school history. Davis headed to Utah State as the team’s associate head coach from 1994-96. At Utah State, Davis coached under former Iowa State head coach Larry Eustachy and the pair combined to win the Big West Championship in 1995. His Utah State tenure ended with his return to Idaho as the Vandals’ head coach and the rest is history. Davis’ rapid ascent up the coaching ladder is no coincidence. Davis has been around the game for his entire life. He grew up watching one of the preeminent coaches in the country operate on a daily basis. Kermit Davis, Sr., Davis’ father, was one of the most

DONNIE TYNDALL Associate Coach

Head coaches always look for loyalty when hiring staff members and that’s exactly what Kermit Davis got when he brought Donnie Tyndall to Middle Tennessee as his first hire. Tyndall and Davis developed a strong bond while both were on John Brady’s staff at LSU, and it was that bond that prompted Tyndall to leave his post at the University of Idaho to accept a similar post at Middle Tennessee. Davis said of Tyndall, “Donnie is a very loyal friend who has one of the finest work ethics in college basketball. I first witnessed Donnie’s head coaching talents when he took St. Catherine College to its only national tournament appearance in a one-year turnaround. He was with our staff at LSU for four years and has complete understanding of our style of play and recruiting. Donnie was part of the growth of LSU basketball from last place to the 2000 SEC title and Sweet 16 run.” Tyndall’s reputation as an outstanding recruiter and hard worker has put him among the country’s elite assistant coaches at a young age. At Idaho, he served as the associate head coach under Leonard Perry. While a member of the Vandal staff, Tyndall acted as the team’s recruiting coordinator, landing a class in 2001 that was ranked as high as 16th nationally. He was also scouting director and was responsible for preparing the team for each opponent. Tyndall also directed the team’s academics, helping it earn an average GPA of 2.6, the highest for a Vandal squad since 1990. Prior to taking the Idaho job, Tyndall worked as an assistant at LSU. While a part of the Tiger staff, Tyndall helped guide the team to an SEC title in 2000. The 2000 team went on to post a 28-6 mark, the second-best in school history. The Tigers ended the 2000 campaign in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament and 10th in the final poll of the year. Tyndall’s recruiting expertise was on display again at LSU. While with the Tigers, he helped recruit three classes that were ranked in the top 20 nationally. The 1998 class was listed as high as third, and the 2001 recruits were ranked eighth. Among his recruits at LSU, two went on to play in the NBA and five received All-SEC honors. Five of his Tiger players also went on to garner Academic All-SEC awards.

Tyndall also continued to show his commitment to academics at LSU. As the program’s academic coordinator, he helped improve the team’s GPA from 1.7 in 1996 to 2.65 in 2001. Prior to joining the Tiger staff, Tyndall served as the head basketball coach at St. Catherine College in Springfield, Ky. During his one-year stint at St. Catherine, he led his 1996-97 team to the National Junior College Athletic Association national tournament, for the first time in school history. At year’s end, the Patriots were ranked 15th in the final NJCAA poll. The team’s 30-5 record was the best in school history, and the squad’s 106.1 points per game led the nation that season. Tyndall’s emphasis on academics was evident once again: his team’s GPA improved from 1.81 to 2.64 in one season and all six sophomores graduated with associate degrees. Tyndall was named the Kentucky-Tennessee Junior College Coach of the Year for his efforts at St. Catherine, and he went on to pick up the Region 7 Coach of the Year award later that season. St. Catherine College

recognized his accomplishments with the Faculty-Staff Achievement Award. Before becoming the head coach at St. Catherine, Tyndall served as an assistant at Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge, Iowa, for two seasons. Aside from Tyndall’s coaching and recruiting duties, he was also charged with organizing and supervising the team’s strength and conditioning program. He also implemented “individual instruction” programs as a means of player development. Under his tutelage, the team’s academics improved and all 10 sophomores who played under Tyndall left school with associate degrees. Tyndall’s collegiate playing career began at Iowa Central Community College, where he played for one season before transfering to Morehead State University. Tyndall earned three letters with the Eagles and won the Morehead State Senior Achievement Award. He also played with the Athletes in Action team after completing his collegiate eligibility. Tyndall received his master’s degree from LSU. Tyndall, 32, and his wife Christi have two children, Taylor Elise, 4, and Grace Elizabeth, 1.

TRES CHAPMAN Assistant Coach

of building Middle Tennessee basketball back into a championship program.” Chapman served as the Cyclones’ administrative assistant during his time in Ames, Iowa, and was an integral part of the team’s accomplishments during that period. While he was there, the Cyclones won two Big 12 titles and put together an Elite Eight run in the NCAA Tournament. Chapman’s former boss had nothing but glowing praise upon his acceptance of the position at Middle Tennessee. “This is a fantastic situation for Tres, for Coach Davis, and for Middle Tennessee. Tres has been a big part of our success with two Big 12 championships in three years. We’re going to miss him, but our loss is Middle Tennessee’s gain.” Prior to his tenure at Iowa State, Chapman was an assistant coach at Mesa Community College in Mesa, Ariz. During his stint at Mesa, the program earned six straight berths in the ACCAC Tournament and captured three straight Region I championships. The team also found its way into the NJCAA National Tournament on three occasions. In each of Chapman’s six seasons on the bench, Mesa ended the season ranked in the top 20, including a final ranking of No. 6 for the 1998-99 squad. While on staff at The Chapman Family (L-R): Andrew, Kristie, Alexis, and Tres (not pictured: Mesa, Chapman served Michael and Ashley) Middle Tennessee head coach Kermit Davis knew he wanted experience and knowledge when he began putting his staff together after his hiring, so it was no surprise that he selected Tres Chapman as an assistant coach. Chapman, 37, brings a wealth of coaching knowhow to the Blue Raider program after spending the last three seasons at Iowa State under head coach Larry Eustachy. “Tres has been a part of winning programs throughout his career,” said Davis. “Tres helped build Mesa Community College into a national power and was a vital part of Larry Eustachy’s Iowa State staff that won two of the last three Big 12 championships. Tres has learned from the best in Larry Eustachy and will be a key part

as a volunteer assistant coach in the Mesa Union School District. From 1991to 1993, Chapman was an assistant coach at South Mountain High School. The 1992 squad captured the 5A State crown. Chapman played basketball at Schoolcraft College after graduation from Mumford High School in Detroit in 1984. He earned his B.A. in English from Arizona State in 1997. Chapman and his wife Kristie have a daughter, Alexis (2) and a son, Andrew, who was born during the spring. Chapman also has a son, Michael (12), and a daughter, Ashley (14).

JEFF WALKER Assistant Coach

Not many coaches in the country come with the credentials that Jeff Walker owns. When Kermit Davis hired Walker as an assistant, it was very obvious the Blue Raiders had someone on board who knew how to win and how to rebuild programs in the right way. Walker, who hails from Nashville, is a very valuable asset on the Blue Raider staff. His extensive contacts in the state of Tennessee, particularly in the Memphis area, will pay big dividends in recruiting in the years to come. He will head the staff’s recruiting efforts in the state along with his duties nationally. “Jeff’s Tennessee basketball background will be key in our recruiting efforts in our home state,” said Davis. “Jeff has been a successful high school and college coach in our state and brings excellent head coaching experience to our staff. In just two years, Jeff turned Grayson College around from a onewin season to a 20-win program with national recognition. I know he’ll be an integral part of our efforts to rebuild the Blue Raider program as well.” Walker comes to Middle Tennessee from Grayson County College in

Denison, Texas, after putting together a 20-10 record and garnering the first-ever national ranking in the program’s history. Walker, who led his team to as high as 13th in the national polls during his final season, went 17-13 in the previous season after taking over a program that had posted a 1-29 mark in the 1999-2000 campaign. That type of turnaround has become a refrain in Walker’s coaching career. He was credited with the biggest turnaround at any level of collegiate basketball with the 16-game improvement at Grayson after also achieving the same feat while head coach at Hiwassee Junior College in Madisonville, Tenn., during the 1998-99 campaign. Walker took over at Hiwassee with the 1998-99 team and went 20-9 after a 423 record in the previous season. In his next season with Hiwassee, Walker’s charges tallied a 22-9 record and went on

to win the Tennessee Junior College Athletic Association state title. Prior to his stint at Hiwassee, Walker was the head coach for one season at San Diego Mesa College, putting together a 12-17 record. However, once again Walker worked some magic, improving his club from a 5-23 record in the prior season. Walker’s resume also includes some time in professional basketball. He was the head coach and general manager of the Memphis Fire in the United States Basketball League from 1993 to 1996, managing an 18-16 record in two years prior to the team’s folding. His 1995 squad was 8-0 and in first place when the team went under. He also spent time in the Global Basketball Association as the head coach and GM of the Mid-Michigan Great Lakers in 1992 to 1993 and the Huntsville Lasers from 1991 to 1992. Walker’s first head coaching stint came at Raleigh-Egypt High School in Memphis, where he resurrected a program in the Memphis City League. In 1989-90 his team went 13-13, a 12-game improvement over the team’s 1-26 record in the prior season. His 1990-91 squad went 18-9, which was good enough for a school record for wins at the time. The Nashville native began his coaching career as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Belmont University, in 1987. From there, he moved to Tennessee State as an assistant coach for the 1988-89 campaign. Walker garnered quite a reputation for developing talent. He produced two USBL rookies of the year and five of his players from the USBL and GBA went on to play in the NBA. He has coached 11 NBA draft picks, including two players who were lottery picks. He has coached 12 collegiate All-Americans and 19 high school All-Americans. He also has direct ties to the Middle Tennessee program. He coached former Blue Raider point guard D’Marius Wilkes while at Hiwassee and current Blue Raider Marcus Robinson while at Grayson County. Walker, 41, attended high school at Glencliff in Nashville before obtaining his bachelor’s degree at Belmont. He earned his master’s degree at Tennessee State. He and his wife Lynne have two children, Gracie (17) and Rex (12).

BOOTS DONNELLY

Blue Raider Athletics Director As perhaps the most recognized name in Middle Tennessee athletic history, it was only fitting that Boots Donnelly was named to head the athletic department that he spent so many years of his life trying to better. Donnelly, 59, has indeed put in a life’s work on the Murfreesboro campus. He was a player on the MT football team in the early ‘60s, became the school’s head football coach in 1979 and held that position for 20 years. Donnelly then moved into an administrative role as the athletic department’s Director of Community Relations for two years. After former athletic director Lee Fowler left in 2000, Donnelly was thrust into the role of interim AD for 14 months before being named to the permanent post on January 15, 2002. After Donnelly took the reigns of the department, it didn’t take long before he began putting his stamp on the program. During his interim period, Donnelly guided MT to its first Vic Bubas Trophy, the Sun Belt’s All-Sports Award, in the school’s first year in the league. He also steered the renovation of the Blue Raider Tennis Complex during this period. Since becoming the permanent AD, Donnelly has secured a $1 million pledge to construct a Blue Raider Hall of Fame, successfully contracted football games against Alabama and Tennessee that created combined revenue of $1 million. He also oversaw the renovation of the Alumni Gym, creating a topflight volleyball arena and basketball practice court for use by the Middle Tennessee teams. Donnelly continues to look for ways to improve Blue Raider facilities on a daily basis and is currently involved in efforts to improve the softball, soccer, and baseball venues. In terms of personnel, Donnelly has continued to strengthen the department by bringing in quality people to continue to advance the Blue Raider mission. Since taking over the helm of the program, Donnelly has hired a new men’s basketball coach, who went on to be honored as the Sun Belt Coach of the Year in his first season, a women’s golf coach who produced a tournament medallist in her first season, and new softball and soccer coaches. He has also landed a new fundraiser to head

the Blue Raider Athletic Association, while implementing a coordinator of athletic development to secure funds in the Nashville area. In his 20 years on the Blue Raider sidelines, Donnelly amassed an overall record of 14087-1, ranking him the eighth most successful coach in Division IAA history.

O v e r h i s c a r e e r, Donnelly won four OVC titles and finished in the national Top 25 ten times. However, a glance inside his record makes it all the more impressive. When Donnelly took over as the school’s football coach, the Blue Raiders had not compiled a winning record in six seasons and had not won an Ohio Valley Conference championship in 13 years. In just three years he tallied a winning record and from that point history speaks for itself. During his career, Donnelly would go on to win four OVC titles and finish in the National Top 25 ten times, and the Blue Raiders would also go on to seven 1AA playoff appearances. That’s not all. Donnelly coached 14 players that went on to NFL careers, nine First Team All-Americans, and 12 OVC Players of the Year. The Nashville native also collected three OVC Coach of the Year honors along with

being twice named Regional Coach of the Year. He would go on to win the National Football Foundation “Contribution to Football” award in 1989 and was named the Tennessee Sports Writers Association Coach of the Year in1988 and 1994. A member of the Blue Raider Hall of Fame, Donnelly was inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame in 1997. His coaching career began at Nashville’s Father Ryan High School, where he had been an outstanding all-around athlete. He took the reigns of the Father Ryan team in 1974 and led his team to a 21-1 record over two seasons including a perfect 13-0 mark and the Tennessee class AAA title in ’74. Donnelly had been the Nashville Interscholastic League’s Player of the Year in 1960 before enrolling at MT, where he played defensive back for three seasons under legendary Blue Raider head coach Charles “Bubber” Murphy. During his career, the Blue Raiders put together an impressive 22-8-1 mark. He passed up his final year of eligibility in 1965 to complete his degree and later added a Master’s Degree from MT in 1966. Donnelly is married to the former Carole Holzapfel. They have three daughters – Bunny, Helen, and Lauren – along with two grandsons and one granddaughter.·

Bill Lansden Associate AD/Fundraising and Marketing 2nd Year/Rhodes College, 1986 Since coming to Middle Tennessee a year ago, Bill Lansden has made a big impact on fundraising and marketing.

There he coordinated all corporate hospitality for the weeklong PGA Tour event, administered marketing and promotional campaigns for the tournament, sold corporate sponsorships and directed up to a dozen volunteer committees for the Classic.

2002-03 NOTEBOOK UDavis Named SBC Coach of Year Capping what was a breakthrough season for MT in the Sun Belt, head coach Kermit Davis was chosen as the league’s Coach of the Year. Davis led the Blue Raiders to the most SBC wins in school history, winning four conference road games during the campaign. The Blue Raiders locked the second seed in the East Division, giving the team its first-ever bye in the Sun Belt Tournament. The award marked only the fourth time that a Blue Raider coach had been so honored. However, it was the second time in five seasons as a Division I head coach that Davis had been named a league’s top coach. UGunn Reaches 1,000 Points Junior guard Tommy Gunn continued to cement his place among the all-time Blue Raider greats by reaching the 1,000-point plateau. Gunn’s accomplishment makes him one of only 27 men in MT history to reach the 1,000point milestone. Gunn scored a career-high 477 points to eclipse the mark. Gunn will begin his senior campaign with 1,065 career points and as number 21 on the all-time scoring list. UTwo for 400 Senior forward William Pippen and junior guard Tommy Gunn became the first MT tandem to each score 400 or more points in a season since Nod Carter and Roni Bailey accomplished the feat in the 1996-97 season.

The duo proved to be the best one-two punch in the Sun Belt, both ending the year ranked in the Top 10 overall in scoring. Gunn led the team with a 15.9 per game average with Pippen nipping at his heels with 15.5. UGunn, Pippen Honored Junior Tommy Gunn and senior William Pippen were honored for their outstanding seasons by being named to the All-Sun Belt teams at the conclusion of the regular season. Gunn was voted to the First Team and Pippen was elected to the third team. Voting for the honors was done by the league’s coaches and sports information directors along with selected media members from each league school. Gunn and Pippen were among the league’s top 10 scorers while Pippen was among the Top 10 in rebounding. URecruiting Class Ranked High Head Coach Kermit Davis and staff thought their fall signing class was strong. Now those thoughts have been confirmed by at least two recruiting services. Ron Briscoe’s Southeast Regional Basketball Report slotted the Blue Raiders with the #23 class in the nation and #10 in the southeast. HoopScoop Magazine put the Blue Raiders at #32 nationally and #1 in the Sun Belt Conference. Neither ranking accounts for Mike Dean, who transferred from Georgia in January. UGunn In Record Books Aside from his career scoring numbers, junior Tommy Gunn is working his way up a few other career lists at Middle Tennessee. Gunn ended his junior campaign in the top 10 in four other career categories. The Syracuse, NY, native stands in fourth place in career treys with 129 and in career three-point attempts with 321. Gunn currently sits in fifth place in career three-point percentage at 40.2 percent. He found himself on three single-season lists this year, too. His 59 threes on the year ranks seventh all-time. Gunn is also sixth in singleseason 3-point percentage at 42.8 and stands 10th in free throw percentage at 82.2.

John Humphrey became the first Blue Raider to participate in the College Slam Dunk and Three-Point Championships prior to the 2003 Final Four. Humphrey finished second in the dunk contest.

to play in the arena. The building opened on Dec. 11, 1972, with a game against Vanderbilt. The Blue Raiders fed off the electric atmosphere that night to turn in a big upset win over defending SBC champs Western Kentucky in that Jan. 4, 2003, game. USpeaking of Records There was no question that the 2002-03 Blue Raiders were a much-improved squad, and the team found its way into the record books, solidifying its turnaround. The Blue Raiders ended the year fifth all-time in treys with 194. The team was also fifth in three-point attempts with 535 and sixth in three-point percentage at 36.3. The Blue Raiders also rated in the top 10 in five single-game categories. The team’s 12 threes and 30 3-point attempts against Murray State on Jan. 1 were eighth and seventh all-time, respectively. The Blue Raiders’ 37 field goals against Denver on March 10 was good enough tor 10th all-time. The team also racked up two rebounding performances worthy of the all-time list. MT grabbed 47 rebounds against IPFW on Feb. 28 to rank eighth alltime, and the team’s 45 boards against North Texas on Feb. 6 rated 10th. UNoting Davis First-year head coach Kermit Davis certainly led a Blue Raider revival, but few people realize that he accomplished something only one other coach in MT history has achieved. Davis guided the Blue Raiders to a five-game win streak, equaling the longest winning streak for any first-year coach at Middle Tennessee. Stan Simpson won five straight games during his Blue Raider debut in 1979-80. UIf You Win, They Will Come The Blue Raiders success also translated into more tickets sold at Murphy Center. Middle Tennessee averaged 3,646 fans during the team’s last four home games, including a season high of 5,135 on Feb. 1 against Florida International. The average attendance over this four-game span was up 1,120 over the team’s season average of 2,526.

UMurphy Turns 30 Middle Tennessee celebrated the 30th anniversary of the opening of Murphy Center on Jan. 4. The night featured the return of over 100 former players and coaches, including several players from the first Blue Raider squad

SUN BELT CONFERENCE Wright Waters Commissioner

Dr. Jeanne Boyd Assoc. Commissioner

Nearly into its fourth decade as one of the nation’s premier leagues featuring strong academic and athletic standards, the Sun Belt Conference continues to establish itself as a familiar face in Division I-A athletics. The Sun Belt Conference is in its 28th season of competition in 2003-04, and is one of only 11 I-A conferences. Sun Belt members institutions include, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Arkansas State University, the University of Denver, Florida International University, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Middle Tennessee State University, New Mexico State University, the University of New Orleans, the University of North Texas, the University of South Alabama and Western Kentucky University. The University of Idaho, the University of Louisiana at Monroe and Utah State University currently hold football memberships with the Sun Belt, forming an eight-team gridiron league along with Arkansas State, LouisianaLafayette, Middle Tennessee, New Mexico State and North Texas. Coming in the 2005-06 academic year, Utah State, Idaho and Troy State University will compete in the Sun Belt Conference in all sports. In men’s basketball, not only did the Sun Belt send a team to the NCAA Final Four in its first-year of play (UNC Charlotte in 1977) the league became known as an innovator in its early stages, pioneering the shot clock and three-point field goal, standards which are followed throughout college basketball today. Furthermore, the Sun Belt was the first conference to sign a long-term contract with ESPN in 1979 and has the longest running broadcast relationship with the network of any conference: 24 consecutive years. Since ESPN’s inception, the network has televised every Sun Belt Men’s Basketball Tournament final since 1980, and that relationship will continue as the league recently inked an extension with ESPN through the 2005-06 season. ESPN features Sun Belt Conference games nationally in the sports of football and men’s

basketball. ESPN also televises Sun Belt events regionally in football, men’s and women’s basketball, and some spring sports. On the court, the Sun Belt has enjoyed enormous success. Overall, current Sun Belt teams have participated in 73 NCAA Tournament games and 72 contests in the National Invitation Tournament. Western Kentucky and New Mexico State have advanced to NCAA Final Fours; Arkansas-Little Rock, LouisianaLafayette and Western Kentucky have participated in the NIT Final Four. Sun Belt members have also made tremendous strides in women’s basketball as well. Western Kentucky has a longstanding history of NCAA Tournament appearances, making three trips to the Women’s Final Four (1985, 1986, 1992), and finishing as the national runner-up in 1992. Florida International has become an NCAA Tournament regular in recent years. They advanced to the second round in 2002, and Denver made its first-ever NCAA appearance in 2001. New Orleans and Arkansas State have excelled as well, winning the WNIT in 1983 and 1993, respectively. In 2001, six Sun Belt women’s basketball teams participated in national postseason tournament action, including four teams in the Women’s NIT: Florida International, Middle Tennessee, North Texas and Western Kentucky, which advanced to the event’s quarterfinals. In baseball, the Sun Belt annually ranks among the nation’s top conferences. In five straight seasons, the league has placed at least three teams in the NCAA Tournament — including four in both 2000 and 2002. The league has been represented in the NCAA Super Regionals in three of the five years the event has occurred. In 2000, LouisianaLafayette made it to the NCAA College World Series, where the Ragin’ Cajuns finished tied for third after claiming two wins. In 1997, the league ranked third according to the NCAA Ratings Percentage Index and

was fifth in 2002. New Orleans advanced to the 1984 NCAA CWS, and, all told, current Sun Belt teams sport 60 NCAA Division I postseason appearances in baseball. The Sun Belt has also displayed athletic excellence in other sports. In 2003, Middle Tennessee’s Mardy Scales won a national title in the 100-meter run — giving the league its second national champion in four years. South Alabama’s David Kimani was a three-time NCAA Division I national champion in 19992000, winning the cross country national title and taking the 3,000- and 5,000-meters at the NCAA Indoor Track Championships. In addition to its athletic accomplishments, the Sun Belt Conference aggressively promotes academics and sportsmanship. The Postgraduate Scholarship, Conference Medallion, Academic Honor Roll and Commissioner’s All-Academic List honor outstanding work in the classroom by the league’s student-athletes. The conference also awards a Male and Female Student-Athlete of the Year honor and numerous Sportsmanship Awards. Since its formation in 1976, the Sun Belt Conference has been innovative and progressive in its thinking. In a move unprecedented in the annals of NCAA Division I, the Sun Belt merged with the American South Conference in 1991, producing one of the nation’s largest Division I leagues. The Sun Belt Conference is led by Commissioner Wright Waters, now in his fifth full year as commissioner. He is the fourth Sun Belt commissioner, following Vic Bubas (197690), Jim Lessig (1990-91) and Craig Thompson (1991-98). The Sun Belt all-sports award, the Vic Bubas Cup, is named after the founding commissioner of the league. The Sun Belt has been headquartered in downtown New Orleans since 2000 after a nine-year stay in suburban Metairie, La. The conference office moved to Louisiana in 1991 from Tampa, Fla., where it had been since 1977. The original SBC office was in Charlotte, NC, during the 1976-77 academic year.

POSTSEASON PLAY 1982 Mideast Regional Nashville, TN MT 50, Kentucky 44 In what is quite arguably the biggest Blue Raider basketball victory ever, MT got off to a very quiet start, trailing 8-0 after two and a half minutes of play. The Raiders fashioned a moderate lead late in the half and the score was knotted at 30-all at the intermission. The score was tied three times in the second half as well but Kentucky was never able to regain the lead. It was a rock-ribbed defense that stopped the Wildcats. Not a single Kentucky player mustered more than eight points, but Rick Campbell had 19 and Jerry Beck had 14 for the Blue Raiders. Beck’s 10 rebounds helped fashion a 36-27 edge on the boards for MT.

Louisville 81, MT 56 Middle Tennessee broke out to leads of 6-0 and 12-5 only to see the Cardinals race past it for a 30-22 halftime lead that steadily mounted in the second half. The Raiders again had an edge in rebounds (26-24) but committed 26 turnovers against only 17 for Louisville. Beck had 22 points to pace the Raider offense, and Derek Smith had 17 to lead the Cards. Middle Tennessee knocked off Kentucky 50-44 in the first round of the 1982 NCAA Tournament, giving the program its greatest victory.

NCAA ( 2-6 ) 1975 Mideast Regional Lexington, KY Oregon State 78, MT 67 Fresh from winning its first-ever Ohio Valley Conference title for both the regular season and the league’s postseason tournament, MT’s Blue Raiders suffered a severe case of “first-appearance jitters” against Oregon State. The Blue Raiders hit only .333 from the field and .167 at the foul line in the first half and found themselves trailing, 30-19. MT played the Pac-8 runners-up dead even in the second half, but the 11point margin was reflected in the final score, 78-67. George Sorrell shared the game’s scoring honors with OSU’s Shelton, each with 23 points. George was the game’s top rebounder, with 17.

1985 Mideast Regional South Bend, IN North Carolina 76, MT 57 Middle Tennessee played the highly favored Tarheels dead even for nearly 30 minutes, but finally succumbed to superior size and depth. At halftime, the two teams were tied at 31-31, but midway through the second period, North Carolina began to pull steadily ahead. The Raiders were outrebounded 41-31; outshot 52.8 percent to 38.6, and outscored at the foul line, 20-3. But the most significant point in North Carolina’s favor was the

1977 Mideast Regional Baton Rouge, LA Detroit 93, MT 76 Detroit, coached by TV-personality-to-be Dick Vitale, took advantage of a hot shooting hand (over 60 percent for the game) to overcome solid rebounding by MT. The only Blue Raider lead of the game came briefly in the second half, 5452, on a tip-in by center Bob Martin. However, Detroit immediately went on a 258 scoring run that iced the decision despite 28 points from Martin and 15 rebounds by forward Greg Joyner. After the Blue Raiders’ upset win over Kentucky, the team took on Louisville in the 1982 NCAA Tournament.

Grant’s 14 rebounds paced Clemson to a lopsided 41-29 edge on the boards. Kerry Hammonds was MT’s top rebounder with six.

1988 First Round Murfreesboro, TN

Charlotte, NC MT 85, Tennessee 80 Notre Dame 84, MT 71 After receiving the only at-large bid in the history of the Ohio Valley Conference, the Blue Raiders lost something of a see-saw battle with Notre Dame’s Irish. MT led early in the first half, fell behind, then led again for a time late in the half only to see Notre Dame pull to a 37-31 halftime edge. The Raiders never led in the second half, but pulled to within two points twice, once with 5:59 remaining and again at 5:20. David Rivers had 27 points and Donald Royal had 24 for the winners. Dwayne Rainey had 22 points for MT. He also led all rebounders in the game, with 9.

1989 Southeast Regional Nashville, TN

Reveling in their role as hosts, the Blue Raiders got Tennessee down early and kept it there, never trailing in rapping out a solid win. MT led by 10 after just over 10 minutes of play. The Vols staged a late second-half rally to shave the lead to only two at 75-73 with 1:44 left, but some clutch free-throw shooting by Gerald Harris and Ty Baynham kept UT at bay. Chris Rainey led five Blue Raiders in double-digit scoring with 20 points. Randy Henry had 19, Harris had 17, Dwayne Rainey had 12, and Leslie Gregory had 10. Dyron Nix had 21 and Clarence Swearengen had 18 for the Vols.

1988 Second Round Murfreesboro, TN MT 69, Georgia 59

MT 97, Florida State 83 There may have been bigger comebacks in MT basketball history, but none more important than this victory over a highly regarded band of Seminoles. MT led by as many as five points during the first half but trailed by seven, 51-44, at halftime and by 17 (67-50) with just 16 minutes to play. Almost miraculously, the Raiders outscored FSU by a count of 47-16 over that final 16 minutes to win it going away. The catalyst for the MT comeback was the shooting of freshman guard Mike Buck, who posted what would remain a career-high 26 points without missing a shot. He was 7-for-7 from the field (including 6-for-6 from 3-point range) and 6-for-6 at the foul line, all in only 22 minutes of play. Forward Randy Henry also had 26 points for the Raiders.

Hosting their second SEC foe in five days, the Blue Raiders had to struggle early before putting away Georgia’s Bulldogs. MT trailed by as many as eight points (17-25) in the first half before rallying for a 36-33 halftime lead behind 13 points from Ty Baynham and 10 from Randy Henry. MT hit 49.2 percent from the floor against 40.7 for Georgia and had a solid 46-24 lead in rebounds. Baynham was the Raiders’ top scorer with 24 points, followed by 18 from Henry and 10 from Phil Snell. Willie Anderson had 18 and Alec Kessler had 16 for Georgia, which ended its season at 20-16.

Dana Barros, the Eagles’ stellar guard, took advantage to score 24 points and was backed up by forward Steve Benton’s 17. Randy Henry had one of his best games ever for the Raiders, racking up 34 points and raking in 12 rebounds. Baynham had 12 points and Chris Rainey had 11 as MT’s season record went to 23-11.
