WHAT’S IN A NAME? The official school name is the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga which is the proper usage in first reference to the athletics program. The appropriate short form is simply Chattanooga with the abbreviated form of UTC. “Chatt” is acceptable as a leaderboard moniker. There is no hyphenated form of the school name (i.e. UTChattanooga, Tennessee-Chattanooga, Tenn.-Chatt., UT Chattanooga, etc.). The nickname is simply Mocs. For more information and current athletic marks, turn to page 14.

NO. 1 IN THE NATION The Chattanooga Mocs men’s golf team has twice been ranked No. 1 in the nation by Golfstat. Both occurences came in fall rankings in 2008 and 2009. In both cases, the Mocs started strong at the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic with a win in 2008 and runner-up in 2009.

WHAT’S A MOC? NICKNAME & MARKS

THE ANSWER

WHY MOCS?

For more than a decade, this question has puzzled many fans and observers of Chattanooga Athletics. The UTC Athletics Department changed logos in 1997, moving away from Native American imagery to a package of logos using railroad images, the nickname “Mocs” and the Scrappy mascot. The new package emphasized UTC’s connection to Chattanooga and the city’s railroad heritage and incorporated the Tennessee state bird. The term “Moc” is short for “Mockingbird.” Mockingbirds are fiercely territorial creatures which protect their homes with courage, determination and skill. Those attributes reflect the intellect, spirit and character of UTC student-athletes and alumni. A Moc is a champion on the playing surface, in the classroom and, most importantly, in life.

Faced with politically sensitive issues and in need of a stronger core identity to help establish a strong brand as Chattanooga’s Team, the athletics department embarked on a comprehensive identity program in 1996. A new direction for the athletics identity was determined, moving away from the politically incorrect Native American Indian imagery. Several identities have been used in the past. With the old nickname “Moccasins,” a snake was used in the 1920s and an Indian was used until the year of major change in 1996. A moccasin shoe was even used in the 1980s. In 1996, it was decided to adopt the State Bird of Tennessee, the Mockingbird, as the core of the new identity, while incorporating the strong regional imagery of Chattanooga’s vast railroad history. The mascot “Scrappy” was born and a new emphasis was placed on the athletics department’s role in the region. The committee also recognized the need for the word “Chattanooga” to have a great emphasis in the logo. The nickname “Moccasins” was shortened to simply “Mocs”. Thus established, Chattanooga could rebuild its athletics programs and initiatives around this new identity. And rebuild it did. Quickly establishing the identity program in February 1997, combined with tremendous success in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, UTC had positioned itself to reach for the next level. From 1997 to 2007, the primary logo was the mascot, Scrappy, riding a train. The secondary logo features the front of a train with the word Mocs built into the logo. This logo is affectionately called the “Cowcatcher logo,” referring to the front lower grill of the train that helped push objects from the train tracks. In August 2007, officials at Chattanooga updated the school’s marks. A new C logo, the “Power C” as it has become known to fans and alums, was created as the primary mark and is emblazoned on the side of the football team’s helmets. The secondary marks were updated with a more modern look, and a new font, unique to the school, is now used on the text areas of the logos and marks. In September 2008, Scrappy was re-branded to better match the image of a mockingbird and reflect the rich tradition of our state, our city and our University. New marks of the head as well as a full body were released. The program has also been taking special efforts to stay true to its color palette—which includes navy blue and old gold.

SCRAPPY Named after legendary football coach A.C. “Scrappy” Moore, Scrappy, the Chattanooga mascot, is a fixture for the Mocs. A re-design in 2008 puts Scrappy in the image of the State Bird of Tennessee, the Mockingbird. The mockingbird is known as a fierce protector of its nest and environment. It is sometimes seen swooping down on a dog, cat or predator that may be venturing too close to the bird’s protected territory. Once described by “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon as “a sledge-hammer wielding mockingbird with a heart of Blue & Gold,” Scrappy symbolizes that competitive passion.

2011-12 MEN’S GOLF

The “Power C” is the primary mark of the Chattanooga athletics department. It can be used alone or with “CHATTANOOGA MOCS” in the school’s custom-made font below the C.

MARK GUHNE SEVENTH SEASON

In his six seasons as head coach, Mark Guhne (pronounced JUNE) has led his alma mater to unprecedented heights in men’s golf. Guhne has spearheaded a consistent presence in the national rankings. Twice Chattanooga has achieved a No. 1 ranking. This first occurred in the fall of 2008. The Mocs again reached the pinnacle in the fall of 2009.

2011-12 MEN’S GOLF

His 2010-11 squad showcased his ability to continue moving the program forward. His No. 1-ranked squads did so with a remarkably similar roster. The 2010-11 team had just one junior (Stephan Jaeger) and a sophomore (Steven Fox) to go with three freshmen in the lineup. That group had the fewest losses in Guhne’s six seasons with just 41 in 11 events. The young squad had many memorable moments. They knocked off three top 15 programs in national runner-up Georgia, Stanford and Iowa in a week’s time finishing second at the Linger Longer and LSU National Invites to Alabama and LSU, respectively.

Guhne has led the Mocs to 14 team titles including three SoCon crowns.

UTC boasted two medalist wins as well. Redshirt freshman Chris Robb won in his second collegiate event shooting nine-under par at the Springhill Suites Collegiate in fall. Jaeger captured his first win against a strong field at LSU shooting seven under and winning by seven as the only player to beat par for the 54 holes.

Golfer of the Year honor as he and senior Derek Rende claimed PING All-Region as well. It was Rende’s third such nod and Jaeger’s second in as many years. Rende earned a fourth All-SoCon team selection, while Jaeger garnered his second. Rende also scored his second Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar nod.

Jaeger repeated as SoCon Golfer of Year and PING All-Region. He was joined on the AllSoCon team byy Steven Fox and Benni Weilguni. Guhne with junior Steven Fox JJaeger Ja eger also earned CCleveland Golf/Srixon at 2010 SoCon Championship. Scholar recognition. AAll-America ll-America Schola

The first No. 1 national ranking came early in the fall of 2008 after the Mocs opened with wins at the Aldila Scenic City Invitational and at the prestigious Carpet Capital Collegiate. The Mocs won their third straight Southern Conference Championship and in its third NCAA Regional appearance, Guhne’s charges earned their way to the NCAA Finals at Inverness.

TThe he Mocs ended the season ranked Golfweek/Sagarin NNoo 38 on the Go Performance Index In and No. 36 on Golfstat while receiving votes on the Golf World/NIKE World/NI Coaches Poll. UTC also made its fifth straight trip to regionals. TThe he 20092009-10 squad matched the NNo. o. 1 rank ranking from the previous fall after a runner-up finish at the presti prestigious Carpet Capital Collegiat Collegiate. Guhne led his team to a win at the Cleveland Golf Palme Palmetto Intercollegiate and a fourt fourth-consecutive NCAA Reg Regional berth that season w with several individual aaccolades. Jaeger earned his first Southern Conference

The third-place finish in the 2009 South Central Regional was not the only highlight during the 2008-09 season. Three wins in 2008-09 coupled with another top 25 final ranking showed the Mocs commitment toward developing consistency on the national scene. Among the three wins in 2008-09 was a third straight Southern Conference Championship. Rende and Ben Rickett were joined on the All-SoCon team by Jaeger who also earned Freshman of the Year honors in the league. It was the third year the Mocs placed three or more student-athletes on the all-league squad. For the first time in school history, the Mocs posted three members on the PING AllRegion team. Rende repeated on the team and was joined by Rickett and Jaeger. Rende became the first Mocs golfer to earn Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar honors. The 2007-08 season saw the Mocs finish in the top 15 of the three major rankings with a high of No. 12 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Ratings Index. Chattanooga ranked No. 14 in the Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches’ Poll as well as in the Golfstat rankings. The team set a school record with five team titles, breaking the previous season mark of four. Individually, the Mocs placed three players in the top 100 rankings (Golfweek/Sagarin) in Jonathan Hodge (26), Derek Rende (74) and Fredrik Qvicker (88), as well as in the

2011-12 OUTLOOK MOCS LOOK FOR RETURN TO NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP

The 2011-12 Chattanooga Mocs golf team looks remarkably similar to the 2010-11 model. All five starters return from a team that had the second-best scoring average (289.95) in school history.

signed another top Scottish junior. Liam Johnston (Dumfries, Scotland) finished second in the Scottish Boys Match Play and Stroke Play Championships in 2011. “Alex and McKeehanon have worked really hard and bring a lot to the squad,” Guhne said. “Liam looks like he will push really hard for a spot from the get go.” The Mocs open the season at “The Masters of College Golf” at the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic. The first event is always highly anticipated, but even more so when talking about one of the top tournaments in country at The Farm in nearby Dalton, Ga.

“We have a lot to build on from last year,” said head coach Mark Guhne. “I’m proud of the way we grew as a young team. It has me really excited to get started this September.”

“When we won in 2008, I don’t think I’ve ever been happier as a coach,” Guhne continued. “It is definitely one of the highlights of my career. It’s a special tournament at a special place.”

Two-time Southern Conference Golfer of the Year and three-time Stephan Jaeger is a 3-time PING All-East Region performer. PING All-East Region performer Stephan Jaeger (Munich, Germany) returns for his senior campaign. Jaeger is the team’s unquestioned leader and a strong candidate for All-American honors in 2011-12. “It starts and ends with Jaeger for us,” Guhne added. “It’s certainly a team game, but he sets the tone. His work ethic is off the charts. He’s exactly what you want in a No. 1 player.” Jaeger is coming off a season where he averaged 71.67 strokes per round which totaled one-under par for the season. He counted in all 30 team rounds leading his comrades with six in the 60’s and 18 total par or better with five top 10s. Jaeger also captured his first collegiate win at the LSU National Invitational shooting seven under to win by seven shots over a strong field.

2011-12 MEN’S GOLF

Junior Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) looks to improve on his sophomore season. Fox averaged a touch over 73 shots per round which ranks 10th all-time in school history. He claimed the Tennessee Golf Association Match Play Championship over the summer. Sophomores Davis Bunn (Knoxville, Tenn.), Chris Robb (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) and Benni Weilguni (Langelois, Austria) are all back as well giving the team a solid balance of experience and foundation for the future. Weilguni was third on the team last year with a 73.67 scoring average. Bunn was fourth at 73.85, while Robb’s 74.18 rounded out the squad. Weilguni (All-SoCon, SoCon All-Freshman) and Bunn (SoCon All-Freshman) captured postseason accolades, while Robb won his second career start at the SpringHill SSuites Collegiate. ““There is a lot to like about all five rreturning e starters,” Guhne stated. ““There were a lot of questions at tthis time last season. This year I tthink we have a lot of answers. BBut there is a lot of competition aas well.”

Benni Weilguni earned All-SoCon honors in his first season.

TThat competition comes in tthe form of three studentaathletes. Junior Alex Ratliff ((Kingsport, Tenn.) and sophomore M McKeehanon Rue (Athens, Tenn.) rreturn e to the mix while Guhne

UTC is off for a little more than two weeks before a run of three tournaments in two weeks. The Mocs go to Burlington, Iowa (Spirit Hollow G.C.) for the Golfweek Conference Challenge. That is followed by the Rees Jones Invitational (Haig Pont G.C.) October 3-4 in Daufuskie Island, S.C. Chattanooga quickly returns to the course Oct. 7-9 with a return trip to Macon, Ga., (Brickyard at Riverside) for the Brickyard Collegiate. It closes out the fall slate at the new AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic in Duluth, Ga. (Berkeley Hills C.C.). “It’s a very solid fall schedule,” Guhne noted. “We will be tested early and it should be great preparation for the spring.” The Mocs are headed to a new event on the spring slate before an old standby. They open February 26-27 at the Seahawk Intercollegiate (C.C. of Landfall – Nicklaus) before heading back to Aiken, S.C., for the Cleveland Golf Palmetto Intercollegiate (Palmetto G.C.) March 5-6. After another small break, the schedule gets hectic for the next three weeks. Over a two-week span, Chattanooga hits three key events. It starts March 18-20 at the Collegiate Match Play Presented by Calloway (The Concessions G.C.) in Bradenton, Steven Fox holds the school record round at NCAA Regional (67). Fla. The following week takes the Mocs back to the Linger Longer Invite (Landing G.C. at Reynolds Plantation) March 24-25, followed by the LSU National Invitational (University Club) March 31-April 1. UTC finished second beating three top 15 teams last season at the latter two events. Post-season play begins April 15-17 with the Southern Conference Championship (C.C. of South Carolina). NCAA Regionals are May 17-19 at six different courses across the country. The NCAA Championship is May 29-June 3 at the famed Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. “It’s a very challenging schedule,” Guhne concluded. “We are deeper this year than we’ve been in quite some time. The competition just to make the travel squad will be fierce. It will make us stronger. “Our goal is the same as always and that’s to make it to the NCAA Championship,” Guhne ended with a smile. “From there, anything can happen.”

RICK HART DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

When Rick Hart came to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, he brought with him a vision and plan for the future of the Mocs. Over the last five years, Hart has changed the landscape of the UTC Athletics Department with his leadership, organizational skills and innovative ideas on how to fulfill the Mocs’ mission of preparing students for productive and meaningful lives. Since his hiring on May 23, 2006, Hart’s efforts have made a tremendous impact on the Mocs studentathletes’ quest for comprehensive excellence – academically, athletically and socially.

ACADEMICALLY

ATHLETICALLY • Captured 17 regular season and 19 tournament championships in the Southern Conference over the last five seasons, more than any other SoCon school. • In 2008-09, Chattanooga posted school records with five teams competing in the NCAA Championships and 10 squads represented in the postseason. • Set a school record in 2009 with a 99th place finish in the NACDA Learfield Director’s Cup that measures the overall success of all Division I athletic programs. Three of the Mocs’ top-5 all-time finishes in the NACDA Director’s Cup have come in Hart’s tenure. • Captured UTC’s first Germann Cup in 2007-08, signifying the best all-around women’s sports program in the Southern Conference.

• Focused attention on strengthening the relationship between Mocs Athletics and the UTC community. • Cultivated and maintained relationships with local and national press that has led to unequalled media attention for a program of this size. • Expanded educational programming for studentathletes, coaches and staff as part of a commitment to learning and personal and professional development. Hart has also been very successful in the traditional roles as UTC Athletics Director. In an effort to ensure efficient and effective management of all elements of the athletics program, and to better align athletics with the academic mission of the institution, Hart developed and installed the Strategic Plan for UTC Athletics. A focus on the student-athlete experience has resulted in increased ticket sales and fundraising, innovative partnerships, improved athletics facilities and the addition of quality coaches. Managing finite resources in collegiate athletics is widely known as a difficult task. Hart made fiscal stewardship a priority for the department since his arrival. With diligent leadership and a commitment from each and every member of the department, UTC Athletics has made significant strides towards reducing the financial burden on the institution and adherence to university allocated budgets.

trative capacities. Hart’s career with the Sooners began in 1999 as the Director of Marketing and Licensing. He became Assistant Athletics Director for Marketing and Licensing in 2001, and developed and implemented marketing campaigns which generated annual ticket revenues in excess of $19.5 million. Hart was promoted to Associate Athletics Director for Program Advancement and Branding in 2003 and Senior Associate Athletics Director in 2006. Hart has also worked in athletics for the University of North Carolina and East Carolina University and has served with the U.S. Olympic Committee. A 1994 graduate of UNC, Hart earned a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education, Health and Sport Science. Hart and his wife, Allison, also a graduate of North Carolina, are proud parents of Trevor and Caroline. A third-generation athletics administrator, Hart’s father, Dave, currently serves as Executive Director of Athletics at the University of Alabama, and his late grandfather, Dave Sr., served in a variety of roles within collegiate athletics including a stint as the Commissioner of the Southern Conference from 1987-91.

Currently, Hart serves as a member of the NCAA Division I Championship/Sports Management Cabinet and the FSC Athletics Directors Association Executive Committee. He is active in the community is a sought-after speaker among the area’s many civic organizations. In addition to his selection as the Grand Marshal of the 2007 Region 4 Special Olympics, Hart has been appointed to the Board of Directors with the March of Dimes – River Valley Division, the Greater Chattanooga Sports and Events Committee and the Finley Stadium Corporation. He is also a member of the Chattanooga Downtown Rotary and the United Way of Greater Chattanooga Leadership Club. Hart arrived on the UTC campus after serving seven years at the University of Oklahoma in various athletics adminis-

• Shown continuous improvement in the overall gradepoint-averages for student-athletes in each of the last six semesters - highlighted by a 2.97 g.p.a. in the spring of 2011, the highest semester mark on record. • Over half of the Mocs’ student-athletes made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll each of the last four semesters. • Developed and implemented an ambitious APR improvement plan that has increased the APR scores of all Mocs athletics programs. • Expanded the Compliance and Academic Services departments to help student-athletes progress toward the ultimate goal of earning a college degree.

ATHLETICALLY • Four teams won SoCon titles in 2010-11, including men’s basketball (div.), wrestling, softball and women’s golf. Six teams - men’s and women’s cross country, wrestling, men’s and women’s golf and softball competed in NCAA postseason play. • Individually, the Mocs had one All-American, five SoCon Athletes of the Year, 11 SoCon Champions, one SoCon Tournament MVP, two SoCon Freshmen of the Year and three SoCon Coaches of the Year. Chattanooga also brought home 45 All-SoCon honors, while 17 student-athletes made various SoCon All-Freshmen teams. • Heath Eslinger (Wrestling), Frank Reed (Softball) and Colette Murray (Women’s Golf) were all named SoCon Coach of the Year in 2010-11.

SOCIALLY • The Mocs volunteered at numerous community events throughout the year, including National Volunteer Week, Special Olympics, Race for the Cure, Read Across America and many more. • The Mocs looked to expand their presence in the surrounding areas with Caravan trips to Atlanta and Nashville. Not to forget their closest fans, the studentathletes again took part in Operation Move-In, helping freshmen unload into their dorms to begin the fall semester. • Being engaged in the community can extend past volunteering. The Mocs created a stir with a number of creative marketing ideas, including the White Out football game against Appalachian State, the Black Out men’s basketball game against Furman, Phillip D. Glass donning a football helmet for the first time and the extremely popular April Fools’ joke to name a few.

The Southern Conference, which begins its 91st season of intercollegiate competition in 2011, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and defining the league’s role in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The SoCon is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Academic excellence has been a major part of the SoCon’s tradition. League athletes have been recognized countless times on Verizon/CoSIDA Academic All-America and district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The SoCon has a rich tradition in men’s golf. Five individuals (seven times) from league schools have claimed national championships including the legendary Arnold Palmer (1949-50, Wake Forest). Men’s golf has been a championship sport in the conference since 1933 and the 2011 championship will be the 65th all-time. The Southern Conference office is located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, the Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the SoCon a first-class meeting area and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents.
