Welcome to

THE HOOP

Once known around the Ohio Valley Conference as “the Temple of Doom” due to its large capacity and imposing atmosphere, the Hooper T. Eblen Center is the OVC’s second-largest arena and one of its most hostile. The building is named for longtime athletic administrator and coach Hooper Eblen, who served the university for 33 years and was instrumental in planning construction of both the Eblen Center and the home of the Golden Eagle football team, Tucker Stadium. The arena features 9,280 seats with cushioned theater-style seating throughout the lower level.

Timeless Traditions

THE BLIZZARD One of the most unique traditions in college basketball, the Blizzard began in 1985 when students brought “Tech Squares” — squares of toilet paper stocked in the dormitory bathrooms — and threw it into the air after the first successful shot made by the Golden Eagles against rival Middle Tennessee State. The annual tradition continued for many years, and it was always performed when MTSU visited The Hoop. When Tech’s biggest rivals left the OVC for the Sun Belt Conference, the tradition waned, but a significant movement to restore it has taken place on campus over the past several years. Last year, the Blizzard rained down on Tennessee State in a February game at Eblen Center. 2 0 1 2 -1 3 G O L D E N E A G L E B A S K E T B A L L

EAGLE EXTRA SUPER SENIOR • MASCOT • 6-6ish • ??? COOKEVILLE, TENN. • FLIGHT SCHOOL The Tennessee Tech Athletic Department unveiled a new brand on Aug. 31, 2006, with an all-new set of logos for the Golden Eagles. The brand is new, but the tradition remains -- the name Golden Eagles. How did TTU adopt the name? In the first quarter of this century, Tennessee Polytechnic Institute was a tiny school, located in the rugged, mountainous Upper Cumberland region where Golden Eagles were plentiful, soaring above the lush, upland forests. It’s easy to understand how those early students and faculty could narrow their choices for their athletic team’s nicknames to “Golden Eagles” or “Mountaineers.” On February 14, 1925, the nickname “Golden Eagles “ was officially adopted. The school newspaper, The Oracle, printed a story that outlined the efforts of a committee to suggest several possible nicknames to Athletic Association members for their consideration. The two most popular names were “Golden Eagles” and “Mountaineers,” and the association, by a vote of 139-18, proudly declared its preference. It wasn’t until 27 years later that a tangible mascot found its way to the campus. Several Tech students braved a driving night rainstorm to pilfer a huge block-tin eagle statue from the charred ruins of a resort hotel in Monteagle. They painted the creature - with a wingspan of over six feet - a glistening gold, and suspended it from the rafter for public inspection at the following day’s basketball game in Memorial Gym. Then-Governor Frank G. Clement, a lifelong friend of the hotel owner, was in Cookeville to speak . He worked out a compromise between his friend and the school students, who wanted to retain the eagle as their mascot. Over the years, a wide variety of artwork and drawings have been used to represent the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles. Some of those include a drawing which appeared in media guides in the mid 1970s, and cartoon-style mascots in the early 1980s that was dubbed ‘the purple chicken” by Tech students.

Tommy Tech

Evil Eagle

Awesome Eagle

First mascot name. “Tommy” was actually the struttin’ Eagle logo, rather than a suited mascot. “Tommy Tech” came from the “TT” on his sweater.

Mascot name from mid-70s to early-80s. Named after “Evil Knievel.” Both “Evils” were known for daredevil stunts.

Beloved Tennessee Tech suited mascot. Although we first had a suited mascot in the mid-1960s, it wasn’t dubbed “Awesome” until the late 1980s.

2012 - 13 Season Outlook The Young Golden Eagles Head Coach Steve Payne is back for his second season at the helm for the Golden Eagles following a solid first-year campaign. The 2011-12 squad finished 19-14, won the iBN Sports Las Vegas Classic, and earned two all-OVC first-team honors. Many of the faces Golden Eagle fans knew and loved from last year are gone. The team’s leading scorer, Kevin Murphy, graduated and was drafted in the second round of the NBA draft by the Utah Jazz. Ohio Valley Conference assists and steals leader Zac Swansey graduated, as did seven-footer Liam McMorrow, who was taken by the Iowa Energy in the NBA D-League draft. Also among the departed for the Golden Eagles include four-time team defensive player of the year Zach Bailey, leading blocker Bassey Inameti, four-year role player Riley Hunley, John Sexton, and Chase Dunn. With just six players returning from last season’s squad, only five of which played last season, Payne needed a deep recruiting class to help keep the Golden Eagles in contention this season. And he did just that, adding two transfers, four true freshman, and two redshirt freshmen to round out the 2012-13 roster. “I like our team speed,” said Payne. “Anytime you have as many freshmen as we have, trying to compete in Division I basketball is a little tough. There’s going to be some growing pains. There’s no question that we are going to have to continue to grow throughout the season and hopefully play our best basketball late in the season.” “We do have some experience returning and some good guys returning. We’re just going to depend on a lot of freshmen at different times. That’s a concern, but they’re willing to work hard, the team’s speed is pretty good, and there are some positives there. We’re excited to get moving forward with these guys.” Among those returnees for the Golden Eagles, none stands out more than preseason all-OVC selection Jud Dillard. The senior guard, who was selected to the all-OVC first team last season, led the conference in rebounding, grabbing just over eight boards a game. He finished second on the team in scoring, recording a little over 17 points per contest. His eight double-doubles led the team and tied for second in the league.

“You know that Dennis Ogbe is going to give you everything he has and be a pretty good player. I think he’ll be our most improved player from last year to this year. We’re looking forward to him having a great junior season.” Junior swingman Matt Marseille returns to the Golden Eagles after sitting out the 2011-12 campaign due to a knee injury. The veteran leader will be looked upon to bounce back and provide some necessary depth both down low and on the wing.

“With Jud Dillard, you know what you’re going to get. You’re going to get a guy who works extremely hard and has improved everyday. He’s always working on his game.”

“Matt is coming off his ACL injury. It’s a slow process. He hasn’t been in practice all the time. It’ll be a slow start for him, but hopefully we’ll get him back to game speed quickly. If we do, you can look out a lot of times to see him with Jud and Javon at the two, three, and four spots.”

Two other starters return for Tech, senior big man Terrell Barnes and junior forward Dennis Ogbe. Barnes started 29 games in 2011-12 and is the lone returning post player for the Golden Eagles. Ogbe nabbed 20 starts last season and will look to make a habit of it again this year.

“That will be the strength of our team, is our bigger wings who play the two, the three, and the four. Those guys will be athletically, offensively, defensively and all around keys to our team. We’ll have to find ways to have all three of those guys on the floor, assuming they’re healthy.”

“Terrell Barnes is a great teammate, a hard worker, and physical player. He had a very good summer playing with the Athletes in Action tour over in Asia. He played extremely well and he’s looking to be a better offensive threat for us this year. He’s our biggest, most physical player.”

Sophomores Mitchell Hill and Javon McKay round out the returnees for Tech. Hill, a local Cookeville product will look to provide coach Payne with some key minutes down the stretch and use his fantastic work ethic to challenge his teammates to work harder. McKay had a solid freshman season and projects to start early and often for the Golden Eagles out on the wing.

2012 - 13 Season Outlook New to the crew this season are transfers Jeremiah Samarrippas and Josiah Moore. Samarrippas, a junior guard from Southern Methodist University, is expected to make an immediate impact at the point guard position after gaining clearance by the NCAA to play this season. He finished fifth in Conference USA last season in both assists (4.2) and assist/turnover ratio (1.8). Moore, who transferred from Nebraska, will sit out the 2012-13 season due to NCAA transfer regulations following one year in the Big 10.

game. He’s improving and is looking more and more like a Division I basketball player.”

“At point guard in the preseason, I would say that Jeremiah Samarrippas is definitely at the top of the depth chart. He’s got good speed, good toughness. He’s a smart guy. He doesn’t have a lot of size, but I think he’ll be able to play at the speed and the pace that Tennessee Tech is known for playing at. I think he’ll thrive in that and we’re looking forward to having him out there.”

“DeOndre Haynes is a freshman player out of Alabama that will play at the point and at the two. He has certainly earned some time on the floor already as a freshman. He’s shown some signs. He’ll have to continue to grow, but he has certainly shown signs of a guy who can play at this level and can be effective early in his career.”

Redshirt freshmen Lanerryl Johnson and Ryon Riggins are ready to go following a year of learning and development. Johnson, a speedy guard from Atlanta, Ga., will prove to be an asset in the backcourt for the Golden Eagles due to his defensive skills and game-changing speed. Riggins adds a 6-9 frame to the mix and will provide some quality minutes in the paint. “Lanerryl Johnson is a guy that we red shirted last year. From strictly a speed standpoint, the ability to defend the ball and the ability to score the basketball, he’s certainly shown some potential in that area to be good player. He’s much improved from last year both mentally and physically and I’m excited what he can do for us as a freshman.” “Ryon Riggins is a 6’9” freshman post player that red shirted last year. He has his moments when he’s a little more skilled than the other guys. He has length and he’s a smart kid who understands the

The incoming 2012-13 class for the Golden Eagles is a strong one. DeOndre Haynes, a top 150 recruit out of Calera, Ala., will sit out much of the first month due to a foot injury. However, he is expected to make an immediate impact as a back-up point guard and spot-up shooter when he gets healthy.

Anthony Morse, a 6-8 forward from Lawrenceville, Ga. has already made an impact on the coaching staff, projecting as a possible starter this weekend and is expected to provide a strong presence in the frontcourt for the Golden Eagles. He is joined by fellow big man, Eric Weisenbach, a seven-footer out of Dublin, Ohio. “Anthony Morse has shown some signs at 6’8”, with being athletic and willing to play hard enough to have an impact on our team right now.” “Our 7 footer, Eric Weisenbach had a great fall. He’s improved his strength and his ability to run. He’s just skinny. He’s got to work on his strength some more, but he’s getting stronger every day. He has some toughness, he’ll chase down some balls, and he has some skill.” Rounding out the 2012-13 roster is freshman Ammanuel Diressa. Diressa, a native of Toronto, Canada, will provide Tech with an immediate three-point threat. “Ammanuel Diressa, at the wing. He’s a 6’4 shooter for us that’s been up and down for us like most freshmen guards. He’s a big enough guard that can play the two or the three. He’s one of the best shooters on our team.” “We feel like we’ve got a lot of depth. From top to bottom we feel like we have the ability to play multiple guys and give multiple looks out there. Overall, the strength of our team is going to be our speed and our quickness.” The Golden Eagles will certainly look to use that speed and quickness early and often. While their youth may hinder them in the beginning, they have the opportunity to more than make up for it with their pure athleticism. At the end of the day, the team has one goal: compete for an OVC title and NCAA Tournament Berth. “This is as good a mid-major league as there is in the country. Our NCAA tournament success proves it. Our NCAA tournament success in the Ohio Valley has been better the past four or five years than that of the Missouri Valley, who gets a lot of attention. It’s been better than almost every mid-major conference in the country. And I don’t see that going away with the quality of players and coaches and the commitment level from our universities to continue to produce quality basketball. It’s only going up. I think night-in night-out this is going to be one of the toughest and closely played conferences in the country.”

Steve

PAYNE

HEAD COACH • SECOND SEASON UNION COLLEGE, 1990 • 19-14 Steve Payne, who served as the associate head coach of the Tennessee Tech men’s basketball program from 2002-2011, is back for his second season as the Golden Eagle head coach. Payne, 43, led Tech to a 19-14 record last season, including a 9-7 mark in OVC play and an OVC tournament first-round victory over Southeast Missouri. The Golden Eagles also made their sixth post-season appearance at the CollegeInsider. com Tournament. Payne came to Tech in 2002 as assistant coach under Mike Sutton, and was the top assistant on the staff for nine years, rising to the post of associate head coach. Although he filled the role as Tech’s top assistant coach, Payne found himself vaulted into a much more demanding role when Sutton was sidelined for the early portion of the 2005 season after being stricken with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. With Payne handling the day-to-day operations of the program, the Golden Eagles raced out to an 8-2 start with losses at Dayton and Cincinnati. Payne continued to handle a major portion of the coaching duties for the balance of the year, helping to lead Tech to an 18-11 record and the semifinals of the OVC Tournament. Following the 2005-06 season, Payne was recognized for the role he played in Tech’s success while Sutton began his recovery. He was named OVC Coach of the Year by CollegeInsider.com and CBSsportsline.com. Both awards, which are usually given to head coaches, were unusual — but well-deserved — recognition for the assistant coach. Payne was also listed as one of 15 finalists for the 2006 Hugh Durham Award honoring the mid-major Coach of the Year. During 2010-11 season alone, Payne - who was named the 2011 Top Assistant Coach in the Ohio Valley Conference by FoxSports.com headed the Golden Eagles on two Ohio Valley Conference road trips in Sutton’s absence, and guided the team to three wins in four games. In his nine years, Payne has helped Tech post 149 wins and two of the program’s five 20-win seasons, hitting that mark in 2002-03 and 201011. Payne was also recognized in July 2009 as one of the Top 25 Mid-Major assistant basketball coaches in the nation, according to CollegeInsider. com. Payne stepped forward to take on a major role in directing the day-today operation of the Golden Eagle program during Sutton’s recovery

He was also an assistant coach at Union University in Jackson, Tenn., where he was recruiting coordinator and helped lead the team to back-to-back 20-win seasons. Payne was director of player development at Union, and that included the coaching of two NAIA all-Americans. He also coached at Knox Central High School in Barbourville, Ky. He is a graduate of Russell County High School in Russell Springs, Ky., and earned his bachelor’s degree from Union College in Barbourville, Ky. in 1990.

Entering its 64th year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. In May 2011 the Conference expanded for the second time in four years, adding Belmont University which will begin competition in the 2012-13 academic year. The addition of Belmont will give the OVC 12 members, the most the league has had at one time in its illustrious history. The move added a second team in the city of Nashville and was the first addition to the league since Southern Illinois University Edwardsville joined in 2008. SIUE will begin regular season competition this season (2011-12) and be eligible for postseason the same year Belmont joins the league. The 2009-10 school year saw a change in leadership as Beth DeBauche was named the seventh full-time Commissioner in league history on July 28. She is currently one of just five females to be the head of a Division I conference, and one of just eight to lead a Division I conference all-time. The last three commissioners of the OVC have moved onto jobs as the commissioner of the Big Ten, Big 12 and the Mid-American Conferences. The OVC’s proud past dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. Discussions were put on hold by World War II but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville merged to form the OVC. Tennessee Tech joined the OVC the following year. In the 1950s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially, breaking racial barriers to providde educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. Through the past 63 years, 15 teams have won or shared the league’s football title. The list is led by Eastern Kentucky, winner of 20 outright or shared football crowns, including both the 2007 and 2008 championships. Former member Middle Tennessee is next with 11 titles, followed by Tennessee Tech with nine. The first Division I-AA/FCS football playoff was held in 1978 with only four teams, which is the only year through present day that the OVC did not field a playoff representative. In the late 1970s, women’s athletics began somewhat of a rebirth on the national scene as the NCAA began sponsoring and marketing women’s sports. Recognizing the need to provide increased opportunities for female athletes, the OVC established women’s championships in the sports of basketball, tennis and track in 1977, with cross country and volley-

ball added over the next four years. Those sports were initially governed by the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW), but the overall strength of women’s programs in the league was demonstrated by the automatic bids the OVC instantly received when the NCAA became the governing body in 1982. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented yearly to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 202 student-athletes honored with the award, including 35 over the last three years. Through the early years of the league, administrators wrestled with fan behavior due to the close proximity of the Conference members and the intense rivalries which developed. Just as it did decades ago, the OVC took the leadership

role on what has become a national issue. In 1995, the OVC implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy which promotes principles of fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent. The statement has become a model for others to follow across the nation, and has answered the challenge of the NCAA Presidents Commission to improve sportsmanship in collegiate athletics. Additionally, the OVC annually presents the Steve Hamilton Sportsmanship Award, in honor of the former Morehead State student-athlete, coach and athletics director, to a junior or senior student-athlete with significant athletic contributions who best exemplifies the characteristics of sportsmanship and citizenship. Most recently, the Conference has also implemented the OVC Institutional and Team Sportsmanship Awards, which are presented to one institution and 18 sportspecific teams voted by their peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. The vision of leadership demonstrated by the Founding Fathers in 1948 remains alive today as the Ohio Valley Conference prepares for the future. One example is in regard to the current trend in collegiate athletics administration for increased involvement of university presidents in setting policies and making rules. The presidents of OVC institutions, however, have always governed the Conference, long before presidential governance became a national theme. The Ohio Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis and track for men, and basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and volleyball for women. In addition, the OVC also sponsors the combined men’s and women’s sport of rifle. Now in its seventh decade of competition, the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. Current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin. Belmont University will become the league’s 12th member on July 1, 2012.

2011 - 12 Season Recap A Beginning & An End The 2011-12 season marked the both a beginning and end to some pretty significant eras in Tech basketball. Beginning was the Steve Payne era following nearly a decade of coaching by former head coach Mike Sutton. In his first full season as the official head coach, Payne led the Tennessee Tech men’s basketball team to 19 wins, the second best coaching debut in Tech history, just behind the 20 wins achieved by Sutton in 2002. He also took the Golden Eagles to the postseason, marking the first time in program history that Tech had made the postseason in back-to-back years. On the flip-side of Payne’s beginning was an end. Ending were the careers of several Tech players, eight as it would turn out. Several of those Golden Eagles made their final flight in the Eblen Center and the Ohio Valley Conference one to remember. Senior guard Kevin Murphy rewrote the Tech record books in a season to remember. He finished second on the all-time scoring list, becoming just the second Golden Eagle to ever record 2,000 points in a career. He also wrapped up a stellar four-year career ranking No. 1 in games played with 128. At the conclusion of his time at Tech, Murphy ranked in the top 30 in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, and games played. Besides the career accomplishments, Murphy set a Tech scoring record, exploding for 50 points against SIU Edwardsville on Jan. 21, 2012. The performance would go down as the best of the season in all of Division I ball and would help propell Murphy to finishing first in the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring. He was later named to the all-OVC first-team. Murphy also became the first Tech player since John Best in 1993 to be drafted into the NBA. Selected in the second round by the Utah Jazz, Murphy worked relentlessly, making the final roster for the team based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. He scored his first career points in the season opener. Another senior guard made sure his prescence would be missed. While only a Golden Eagle for two seasons after transferring, Zac Swansey would finish his Tech career ranked sixth all-time in assists with over 400. He also finished ninth in the career rankings for steals with 140. He became just the second Tech player in history to average over six assists and two steals per game. Swansey led the Ohio Valley Conference in both assists and steals in 2011-12, ranking in the top-25 in the NCAA in both categories for the second-straight season. His leadership and ability to run the point guard position will prove to be hard to replace. Also departing from the Golden Eagles, seven-footer Liam

McMorrow found himself well on his way to a career in professional basketball. McMorrow was drafted in the fourth round of the NBA Developmental League draft by the Iowa Energy. Former defensive stand-out Zach Bailey and blocking enthusiast Bassey Inameti earned invitations to the Music City All-Star Classic. They helped mark the fifth-straight season a Golden Eagle made an appearance at the game. One of the bright takeaways from the 2011-12 season still to remain at Tech, senior guard-to-be Jud Dillard improved tremendously for the second consecutive year. Dillard, who received no preseason recognition from the OVC in 201112, finished fourth in the conference in scoring with over 17 points per game. Even more impressively, he managed to lead the OVC in rebounding as a guard with over eight boards a contest. He finished second in the league with eight double-doubles. Dillard’s performance earned him an all-OVC first team nod, joining his teammate Murphy. The season didn’t necessarily end the way Tech fans may have liked. There were no banners to cut down and no parades to be thrown. But the future looks bright with one of the conference’s best players due to make his return under what seems to be the beginning of a regime poised for instant success. Now that the end is over, it’s time for a new beginning.

Golden Eagles In the Pros Tony DiLeo DiLeo has been a part of the 76ers basketball operations department since the 1990–91 season. After spending years within the organization in positions including director of scouting and assistant coach, DiLeo notably held the positions of Director of Player Personnel from 1999 to 2003 and was promoted to Senior vice president/assistant general manager in September 2003. On December 13, 2008, DiLeo was named interim head coach. Taking over the Sixers who had started the season with a 9-14 record, DiLeo managed to finish the 2008–09 season with a 41–41 record. This record was good enough to clinch the Sixers the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference for the playoffs and a matchup with the third seeded Southeast Division champion Orlando Magic. On May 12, it was reported that DiLeo had asked team president and general manager Ed Stefanski to remove his name from consideration to return as head coach. DiLeo opted instead to return to the Sixers’ front office as senior vice president and assistant general manager. On Sept. 22, 2012, DiLeo was promoted to general manager of the 76ers after 22 years with the team.

I. PHILOSOPHY The retirement of an athlete’s jersey is one of the highest athletic honors that the University can bestow on a student-athlete. Although the honor is based primarily on athletic ability, it also recognizes that the student-athlete is a member of an academic community and has the accompanying responsibilities incumbent with that membership. Consequently, such an honor shall reflect the participatory as well as the non-participatory activities of the student-athlete. That is, the recipient shall be a model for future student-athletes both on and off the field/floor. II. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS The following list of criteria is not meant to be all inclusive, although items A and B shall be considered as basic requirements for all candidates. Additional criteria could be considered if they seem substantive and appropriate. It is not expected that a nominee will have met every one of the criteria listed. It is expected, however, that any limitations in one area shall be counter-balanced by superiority in other areas. The criteria to be considered are as follows: A. Be the recipient of a baccalaureate degree.

University Administration Dr. Philip

OLDHAM – University President – Freed-Hardeman, 1980 Dr. Philip B. Oldham, who joined the university July 1, 2012, as its ninth president, is a former collegiate tennis player who understands the demands on student-athletes and who values how college athletics enhance the university and surrounding community. President Oldham previously served as provost and senior vice chancellor of academic affairs at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a position he had held since 2007. He received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Freed-Hardeman University in 1980 and his doctorate in analytical chemistry from Texas A&M University in 1985. He spent a year following his graduate work as a Wellcome Research Fellow at Burroughs Wellcome Co. (Glaxo Smith-Kline) before joining the faculty at Mississippi State University in 1986. Oldham served as head of Mississippi State University’s chemistry department for five years prior to becoming MSU’s College of Arts and Sciences dean in 2001.

Oldham has served on statewide task forces to develop the new higher education funding formula for Tennessee and to create universal transfer pathways to provide seamless student transfers across all Tennessee public colleges and universities. Along with his administrative accomplishments, Oldham has authored more than 35 peer reviewed research articles in analytical chemistry, along with two patents and approximately 100 conference presentations. His research has been financially supported by the National Science Foundation, American Chemical Society, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Geological Survey and private industry. He has served on a number of scholarly editorial boards and as a peer reviewer for both the NSF and National Institutes of Health. Oldham and his wife, Kari, are proud of their family, which includes three sons (Clay, Paden and Sam), a daughter (Audrey) and a daughterin-law (Rebecca).

During his five years as provost at UTC, enrollment grew 28 percent to more than 11,400 students. He led efforts to improve student retention and graduation rates resulting in a 15 percent increase in freshmen retention in just three years. Under his leadership, UTC established the Center for Advisement and Student Success, created the Math Plaza and initiated UTeaChattanooga to educate future teachers. He oversaw the addition of doctoral programs in advanced nursing practice and occupational therapy as well as the redesign of summer school. Under his guidance, the university raised significant private support, received board approval to create the University Honors College and launched a creative new “Degree in 3” program designed to accelerate degree completion at reduced student costs.

Tennessee Tech University Athletics Mission Statement The mission of Tennessee Technological University Intercollegiate Athletics, based upon and consistent with the university’s mission, is to encourage student scholarship and sportsmanship with emphasis placed on helping studentathletes make appropriate progress toward completion of their chosen academic degree programs and become productive members of society. The TTU Intercollegiate Athletics Program serves as a rallying point for the university as well as a public relations outlet for university activities by striving to bring positive recognition to TTU through a program built on concepts including excellence, integrity, and enthusiasm.

114

Academic integrity is a key element in athletic decisions, thus ensuring that the educational values, practices, and the university’s mission set the standard for the program. TTU’s athletic program strives for student-athlete excellence in competition and in the academic setting. TTU seeks to field disciplined and competitive athletic teams dedicated to observing sportsmanship and applicable rules, to providing quality athletic training and medical support to intercollegiate athletics, and to supporting the general welfare of student-athletes. The TTU Intercollegiate Athletics Program focuses on the overall development of all persons participating in athletics. Ethical conduct and good sportsmanship are

promoted among faculty and students, alumni and friends, athletics department staff, and student-athletes. The program adheres to the policies, rules, and guidelines of the National Collegiate Athletic Association NCAA), the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC), and the institution. Intercollegiate Athletics is as supportive of women as of men and as supportive of those in the minority as those in the majority. The program is committed to complying with Title IX regulations. Intercollegiate Athletics provides opportunities to eligible persons without regard to age, gender, color, race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability.

WHERE QUALITY COUNTS

For nearly 100 years, Tennessee Tech has served the various needs of the region, the state and beyond. Not only is Tech renowned as a fine institution of higher education, it also serves as a public resource center and encourages scholarly research and creative activity by its faculty and students. Today, Tech makes a number of contributions to economic development locally, regionally and nationally. Tech’s 65,000-plus alumni occupy positions of leadership in education, business, industry, government and public service. Tennessee Tech is widely known as an institution noted for its academic quality -- an institution where the energies of the faculty, staff and students are devoted to ensuring that the university’s quality is maintained and enhanced. The university is divided into seven academic divisions offering 44 programs of study leading to the bachelor’s degree and 20 programs of study at the graduate level. More than 75 percent of the 370 fulltime faculty members hold doctoral degrees. Considered one of the most picturesque campuses in the South -- and one of the safest -- the buildings carry an attractive Georgian style of architecture that lends the Tech campus an Ivy-league character.

CAMPUS LIFE Tennessee Tech students know that there is a lot more to college life than what goes on in the classroom. Nearly 200 student organizations on campus offer activities ranging from academic, athletic, cultural, political, community-oriented, social to spiritual. At Tech, it’s easy to get involved and make friends. Campus recreation coordinates 11 intramural and club sports: basketball, bowling, flag football, golf, racquetball, rugby, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball and wrestling. The Fitness Center is a free, full-service health club for students. It houses a fully equipped weight room, 25-meter indoor pool, cardiovascular equipment and an indoor track. Tech is also a center for the arts, presenting concerts, theatre productions, lectures, dance performances, films, workshops, demonstrations and art exhibits each year. And, of course there’s always an athletics event to attend. Tennessee Tech’s athletic teams compete in the Ohio Valley Conference for 14 sports on the NCAA Division I level, and students can attend all regular season athletic events absolutely free!

Tech was established in 1915 as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute, located on the site of its forerunner, Dixie College. TPI gained university status in 1965, reflecting the institution’s role as a multipurpose, state-supported university. Tech’s current enrollment continues to include students from almost all 95 Tennessee counties, along with students from more than 40 other states and about 40 foreign countries.

Athletics Administration Mark

WILSON – Director of Athletics – University of Maine, 1991 Mark Wilson’s first eight years as Director of Athletics at Tennessee Tech have showcased his vision, energy, and enthusiasm for providing outstanding experiences for Tech’s student-athletes and fans. Highlights of his efforts include major improvements in Tennessee Tech’s athletics facilities including the Basketball Coach’s Complex and the Athletic Performance Center, high graduation and APR rates by Golden Eagle student-athletes, outstanding academic success, and excellent relationships with the campus, community and alumni. In short, Wilson has facilitated growth and excellence in all areas of TTU Athletics. In June, Wilson agreed to a five-year contract extension, keeping him at the helm of the Golden Eagle athletics program through 2017. Coming off an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council, Wilson is beginning a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Football Championship Committee and Division I Football Issues Committee, and has been very active in the Ohio Valley Conference governance structure. Wilson, 43, has led Athletics to several milestone accomplishments during his first eight years, including enhanced facilities and fund raising, high profile staff additions, and compliance and academic success. Under Wilson’s guidance, the program has continued to focus on the academic success of its student-athletes, with soaring numbers each semester on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. Tech’s student-athletes have achieved their highest overall combined semester GPAs. Wilson also developed a strategic plan for Tech’s athletic facilities and has already seen some of those plans become reality. During the past five years, Tech has completed several construction and renovation projects to athletic facilities, including a spectacular, new Athletic Performance Center on the western edge of campus, a spacious, new basketball office complex in Eblen Center, a new natural grass practice field, installation of new turf in Tucker Stadium, renovating the running track, renovating the football offices, meeting rooms and locker rooms, and new lights at Tucker Stadium.

Commerce, the student body, the campus community and the region at-large. His leadership has been instrumental in the overwhelming success in the community’s host role at Tucker Stadium for the annual Blue Cross Bowl for the TSSAA high school state championship football games. Tech has also seen growth in regional and national media exposure for its student-athletes and coaches while his hand-on approach to marketing and branding Golden Eagle Athletics has earned increased opportunities and involvement for fans and sponsors. Some of the ideas he has implemented include the Purple Pride Caravans, a new athletics logo and branding marks that have gained nationwide recognition, and an updated and modern ticketing system. Under Wilson’s direction, Tech is also on the brink of introducing an enhanced digital video presence for athletics, including free live web streaming productions and a variety of additional video programs, interviews and features that will give fans, alumni and supporters greater access to Golden Eagle teams, student-athletes, coaches and staff. During his tenure, Wilson has successfully selected and hired head coaches for six of the school’s 14 teams, and three of those hires have earned Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year honors. Another highly visible product of Wilson’s leadership is the increased fan support at Golden Eagle events. Last year, while winning the OVC Championship for the first time in 36 years, the Tech football team drew the largest average home attendance at Tucker Stadium in 25 years. In February, Tech set a school record for the largest attendance at a women’s basketball game. Wilson was named Director of Athletics on July 1, 2004. He came to Tennessee Tech from a position of Associate Athletics Director at Ohio University. Prior to that, he served as the Director of Athletic Marketing for the University of Massachusetts, worked as a graduate assistant in the UMass athletic department and interned with the Northwestern University ticketing and marketing departments. Wilson received his bachelor’s degree in 1991 from the University of Maine in physical education and health, and earned his master’s in sports management from the University of Massachusetts in 1994. Mark has two daughters, Katey (17) and Meaghan (12).

Additional building plans call for a new student-athlete center and an on-campus tennis center. Another step achieved under Wilson’s direction has been increased fund raising and development efforts with the goal of providing the necessary facilities and resources for Tech’s student-athletes, coaches and staff. All of those accomplishments have come while the department has continued to stay focused on compliance with all NCAA rules and regulations. The most recent NCAA announcements show that all 14 of Tech’s athletic programs are comfortably above the benchmark for compliance in the Athletic Progress Rate (APR), including two Tech teams winning Public Recognition Awards. Prior to that, the Golden Eagle softball team ranked first in the nation for cumulative team GPA for the second time in four years. Just as important are the relationships that Wilson has developed and nurtured, including the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of

Academic Support Dr. Lance

JASITT – Assistant Athletics Director for Academics and Student Welfare – penn state university, 1978

Dr. Lance Jasitt serves as Assistant Athletics Director for Academics and Student Welfare.

Dr. Jasitt plays a key role in the academic success of each of Tech’s varsity student-athletes, managers, and graduate assistants. His primary goals are to provide guidance and academic resources to permit studentathletes to maintain their academic eligibility under NCAA rules and to progress to graduation. In this process, Dr. Jasitt serves as a primary liaison between coaches and faculty. A detail-oriented person and a diligent worker, Dr. Jasitt has developed a solid understanding of the operations of the Athletics Department, the staff and the needs of its student-athletes. In addition to his academics/student welfare roles within Athletics, he has served in compliance and administrative operations roles in the Tech Athletics Department since 1998.

Dr. Jasitt is also highly involved in promoting reading and literacy at all age levels. He was the 2008-09 president of the TTU Council of the International Reading Association and is actively involved in that organization. He also has served on the President’s Commission on the Status of Women for seven years. Raised in York, Pa., he earned a bachelor’s degree from Penn State in 1978 and added a master’s in public administration from Valdosta State in 1987. In 1993, he received a master’s degree in education from Old Dominion University and added a Ph.D. in literacy education from Tennessee Tech in 2004. Dr. Jasitt is a former Commander in the U.S. Navy. His wife of 30 years, Donna White Jasitt, is a former Captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve. They have two children, Ian and Meagan. Ian recently received his second degree from Tech, this one in Environmental Geology. Meagan is a senior Pre-Physical Therapy major at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

The “WIN” program: Work Intensely Now

Marilyn Borch-Jensen Academic Advisement Secretary

Virginia Lewis Academic Coordinator

The WIN Program was implemented in the fall semester of 2004 to provide additional support for freshmen and student-athletes whose general academic progress places them at risk for maintaining eligibility and graduating. The program involves the student-athlete, coach(es), academic advisor, tutors, and others to build academic skills for success. Participation in the program is primarily based on grades, and coaches or the academic advisor may recommend additional participation at any time. All incoming freshmen meet at least one time per week with their coach to discuss academic progress and needs as well as time management and study skill techniques. Other aspects of the program include monitored study hours, tutoring, and study skills workshops.

The success of Tennessee Tech University’s athletic teams is tied closely to the academic progress of each student-athlete, and the academic performance of each Tech student-athlete is closely monitored by the coaching staff as well as an experienced staff in Academic Services, led by Dr. Lance Jasitt. Student-athletes are the most visible component of a university, entertaining thousands of fans, students, alumni, family and friends. Their athletic abilities and achievements are a focus for national attention, as athletic events not only bring back faithful alumni, but serve as a welcome mat to the university for potential new students. Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they can be. These hours are not required by nonathletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete with academics for the student-athlete’s time and energy. The Tech Athletics Department works to provide help with course content (through tutors and monitored study hours) as well as with time management and study skills and any other academic support services that will allow Tech student-athletes to maximize their academic potential.

Strength and Conditioning Chip

PUGH – Head Strength & Conditioning Coach – Ohio University, 2000

Chip Pugh is in his fifth year as Tennessee Tech’s strength and conditioning head coach. He oversees the physical development of student-athletes in all 14 sports, providing support in building toward championships. Pugh served three years in the same position at Winthrop University where he created and developed a highly successful strength and conditioning program that helped win 12 conference championships. An alumnus of Ohio University, he was an offensive lineman on the football team while earning a bachelor’s degree in sport industry and a master’s degree in physical education. Pugh believes that the qualities that athletes can develop in strength and conditioning will not only aid in their athletic development, but will also help them build quality character components necessary for life. A native of Parkersburg, W. Va., he began his coaching career at his alma mater as an assistant strength and conditioning coach where he primarily worked with men’s and women’s track,

men’s and women’s swimming, and women’s soccer. He also assisted coach Ethan Reeve, currently the head strength and conditioning coach at Wake Forest, with football while at Ohio. After leaving Ohio University he became the head strength and conditioning coach for football at Marietta (Ohio) College, where he also worked as an assistant football coach. Additionally, during his two years at Marietta College he also served as a campus minister to the college. Pugh is a certified member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches’ Association. He also holds the Club Coach certification through USA Weightlifting. He is a Level-I certified CrossFit trainer and conducts personal training classes open to the public using the CrossFit methods. Chip and his wife, the former Nicole Carey, were married July 29, 2000. They live in Cookeville, where they are active in sprint triathlons and CrossFit. The couple has one daughter, Rory Love Pugh, born October 16, 2010. Their family grew to four on June 12, 2012, with the arrival of their second daughter, Reagan Mercy Pugh.

Emphasizing Player Development The Tennessee Tech strength and conditioning program is a blend of science, technology, nutrition and one-on-one attention to each athlete. Golden Eagle student-athletes make a year-round commitment to physically preparing to play their sport at the highest level. At TTU, a program is tailored to match each student-athlete’s individual needs with the sport-specific physical demands. This includes strength, speed, power, agility, flexibility, metabolic conditioning and motivation. This combination allows Tennessee Tech’s student-athletes to better reach their specific goals. Another major focus of the strength staff is the development of sport-specific speed, agility and conditioning.

Strength and Conditioning By taking advantage of expert instruction, Golden Eagle student-athletes are afforded every opportunity to maximize their athletic potential.

Development of Core Strength Imagine the body is a 3-link chain with the head and arms being one link, the torso/trunk being the second link and the legs being the third link. If the core link (trunk/torso) is weak or inflexible, there is little chance of maximizing potential because all body movement stems from the core. Train using ground-based, multi-joint lifting versus machine lifting Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training should be on total body athleticism and flexibility rather than having body weight supported by a machine and forcing isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground-based lifts and exercises that focus on the total body, the athlete becomes more prepared to use their whole body in sport skills.

Assistant Strength Coaches

Train for Power (which results in increased speed) Power = (Mass Moved x Distance)/time. The less time it takes to move a mass a certain distance, the higher the output. As seen in the above formula, an increase in speed of movements results in an increase in power.

Train Athleticism Many factors are included in athleticism: strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, coordination, fitness level and mental toughness are just a few. It is the goal to maximize an athlete’s overall athleticism. Train as a Team When teams train together, it provides another opportunity to develop chemistry, teamwork, leadership skills and a competitive environment. Within this competitive environment, teams can work on mental toughness, attacking the weights and maintaining a positive attitude. By enabling athletes to work on these things as a team, it helps to promote a stronger sense of unity, thus making it harder to “fold” under pressure. Make workouts short and intense There are many philosophies on how to get athletes stronger, faster and more flexible. But, when combined, these philosophies have the same three underlying principles: a) The workouts should be highly organized b) The workouts should be short in duration c) The workouts should be extremely intense The following are recommendations for athletes concerning days and times of strength training (including warmups): * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout * Postseason: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout * Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout

After producing more than 100 videos during the 2011-12 academic year, Tech Athletics looks to continue its visual media efforts by providing quality videos on a regular basis.

ESPNU

WCTE TV Dick and Donna Castle and their small TV crew began televising Tennessee Tech games on Cookeville’s upstart PBS station in 1980, and the station has been there covering the Golden Eagles ever since. The faces and voices have changed throughout the years, but one thing has remained constant — this year basketball fans in the Upper Cumberland will enjoy live telecasts of Golden Eagle games once again. The station continues the tradition under the direction of station General Manager Becky Magura and Producer Rick Wells.

here's no question Tennessee Tech University is a great place to get an education. And Cookeville is a great college town. The largest micropolitan area in Tennessee and one of the top 40 micropolitan areas in the nation, Cookeville has consistently been rated among the top 10 most affordable regions in the nation.

Cookeville boasts a mild climate, with an average temperature of 57 and four distinct seasons. Located within a day's drive of 75 percent of the nation's population, Cookeville is just off Interstate 40, which runs from the east coast to California. City life is easily accessible, as well, because Cookeville is situated within 100 miles of Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga — three of Tennessee's major metropolitan areas. The seat of Putnam County, Cookeville is the heart of a three-county alliance known as the Highlands, which centers Tennessee's 14-county Upper Cumberland region. We have hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature — from championship golf courses to natural preserves, state parks and top-rated lakes — close to home. There's plenty of nature inside the city limits, too; the City of Cookeville tends nine parks, including Cane Creek Park, a 262-acre natural area with a 56-acre lake. And while Cookeville is a relatively small town, we have no lack of culture. We are one of the smallest cities in the U.S. with a full-blown symphony orchestra, and our area attracts visual artists and craftspeople from across the nation, thanks to the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of TTU. Drama also takes center stage here, with the 456-seat Cookeville Performing Arts Center cranking out productions year-round, including the award-winning Drama Center Backstage series. Cookeville is home to three museums — the Cookeville Depot Museum, the Cookeville History Museum and the Cookeville Children's Museum — and a year-round slate of events, including regular excursion trains and the annual Fall FunFest. A walkable downtown shopping district and an impressive roster of national chain stores give the retail segment a small-town feel with big-city convenience. Add to that our more than 100 restaurants and 1,400 hotel rooms, and you'll quickly see that Cookeville offers something for everyone.
