What’s a Moc

what’s a moc? the evolution of the mascot

The Answer 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 Introduced in 2008, the new-look homes with courage, deter- Scrappy has a sharper and more modern feel, mirroring the growth and immination and skill. Those attri- age of UTC Athletics. butes reflect the intellect, spirit and character of UTC studentathletes and alumni. A Moc is a champion on the playing surface, in the classroom and, most importantly, in life. 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, a 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 sledgehammer wielding mockingbird with a heart of Blue & Gold,” Scrappy symbolizes that competitive passion.

Why Mocs?

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 The “Power C” logo is the primary mark of Chattanooga Mocs Athletics. 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.

season preview

season preview 2011-12 Outlook

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team is set to enter the third year of the Heath Eslinger era. The Mocs are looking to make a run at their eighth-consecutive Southern Conference Championship and make some noise on the national level.

133: The 133 class is wide open for the Mocs with two sophomores and three freshmen competing for the spot. T.J. Mitchell (Atlanta, Ga.) transferred to UTC from Virginia Tech in the offseason and could have the inside track. He is a two-time state champion at Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, Ga. Sophomore Adam Wilson (Atlanta, Ga.) is also looking to get into the mix after sitting out last season. True freshman Nick Soto (Spring Hill, Fla.) may sneak into the starting role. He

has two Florida state titles on his resume and was a perfect 45-0 as a high school senior. Fellow freshmen Jacob Akins (Madison, Ga.) and Adrian Thomas (Clarksville, Tenn.) will also compete in this class. 141: The Mocs will have some big shoes to fill at 141 with the loss of former All-American Cody Cleveland (Tullahoma, Tenn.). Sophomore Shawn Greevy (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) posted a 7-5 mark and earned a spot on the

Only once before has UTC won eight consecutive SoCon titles, taking home nine in a row from 1986 to 1994.

He was the 125 champ and competed at the NCAAs as a freshman in 2009. He missed most of last year with a knee injury that is still slowing him this season, but is a preseason AllSoCon pick nonetheless. Look for redshirt freshman Cole Hayes (Knoxville, Tenn.) to step in, along with fellow redshirt freshman Blake Thomas (Brentwood, Tenn.) or true freshmen Cole Gallagher (Davidsonville, Md.) and Ethan Hames (Cleveland, Tenn.), if Johnson is out.

season outlook

SoCon All-Freshman team last season. He will be pushed by sophomores Trevor Herron (Cleveland, Tenn.) and Joe Burns (Morristown, Tenn.). Freshmen Devante Brown (Suwanee, Ga.) and Austin Sams (Fairfield, Ohio) are also competing for time on the mat. 149: Chattanooga has depth and experience at 149, starting with former SoCon Champion Dean Pavlou (Cleveland, Tenn.). He failed to repeat at the conference meet last season, but still managed a 14-11 overall record and is a preseason All-SoCon selection. Senior Kelly Felix (Franklin, Tenn.) will also be pushing to get into the lineup. He was 2-0 in SoCon matches last season. Junior Alex Hudson (Marietta, Ga.) will also look to improve on his 2-1 record from last year. 157: Senior Dan Waddell (Chattanooga, Tenn.) moves back down to 157 after competing at 165 last season. He was the SoCon Champ at 149 as a freshman in 2009 and is looking to get back to the NCAAs in his final year. The league coaches tabbed him as a preseason All-SoCon selection. A trio of freshmen could work their way into the mix, beginning with redshirt freshmen Jared Presly (Harrison, Ohio) and Trey Stavrum (Chattanooga, Tenn.). True freshman Alex Kooser (Dayton, Ohio) is another newcomer who could push for time at 157. 165: Senior Brandon Wright (Germantown, Tenn.) moved up to 174 last season where he won the SoCon title and advanced to the NCAAs. He is back to his normal 165 weight where he will be one of the top wrestlers in the league. A trio of talented true freshmen will back him up, beginning with John Lampe (Fairdale, Ky.). Lampe was a two-time Kentucky state champion and could push Wright in this class. Cory Canada (Ringgold, Ga.) and Jesse Beaver (Murphy, N.C.) are also former high school state champs who will add depth to the class. 174: The Mocs were hoping for the return of sophomore Jake Young (Ooltewah, Tenn.), the 2010 SoCon Freshman of the Year, at 174. He sat out last season with an injured knee and has unfortunately reinjured that same knee. He is expected to miss the entire 2011-12 campaign. Junior Josh

2011-12 Mocs wrestling

Condon (Powder Springs, Ga.) has moved up from 157 where he won the SoCon title and advanced to the NCAAs last season. Sophomore Levi Clemons (Kissimmee, Fla.) has the most experience at this class, but went 6-13 as a true freshman last year. 184: UTC currently has one option at 184 in junior Robert Prigmore (Southlake, Texas). He transferred to UTC from Lehigh in 2009 and went 7-10 last season. He wrestled up with a 4-5 mark at 197 and a 3-5 record at heavyweight. 197: The Mocs also have just one competitor on the roster at 197 in junior Niko Brown (Kissimmee, Fla.). Brown scored an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament last season after posting a 19-11 overall mark. He went 4-1 in SoCon action and was second on the team with six pins. 285: Freshman Kevin Malone (Carrollton, Ohio) will make his debut at heavyweight this season. The 6-5 big man cast a huge shadow when he sat out last year as a redshirt. Junior transfer Bradley Rogers (Collierville, Tenn.) will help push the big guys in the room and could see some action. The SoCon coaches picked UTC as the league favorite by a one-point margin over Appalachian State. The league will have a new look with UNCG dropping its program and Gardner-Webb and Campbell joining as wrestling affiliates. The home schedule will be an exciting one for UTC. It includes seven dual matches and two tournaments. The Southern Scuffle heads to Chattanooga and the McKenzie Arena on Jan. 1-2. The SoCon Championships will also be held in McKenzie on March 3.

season review

season review 2010-11 recap

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team wrapped up another successful season on the mat following the 2011 NCAA Championships. Despite not scoring a point in the national tournament and finishing a disappointing 65th, the Mocs still won their seventh-straight Southern Conference Championship. UTC went 11-9 in dual matches under second-year head coach Heath Eslinger. The Mocs were undefeated in SoCon action with a 5-0 mark. UTC has won 35-straight SoCon bouts and has not lost a league match since Feb. 14, 2004. The Mocs sent six wrestlers to the NCAAs, including Demetrius Johnson (133), Cody Cleveland (141), Josh Condon (157), Brandon Wright (174), Jason McCroskey (184) and Niko Brown (197). Brown was an at-large selection while Cleveland, Condon, Johnson and Wright all qualified by winning a Southern Conference title. McCroskey finished second at the SoCon Championships, but the league had two automatic bids at 184. Three seniors ended their UTC careers, including Cody Cleveland, Matt Lettner and Cody Stokes. Junior Jason McCroskey graduated in May of 2011 and also called it a career this season. SENIOR CODY CLEVELAND Cleveland (Tullahoma, Tenn.), a 2008 All-American, won his third SoCon title at 141. He missed significant time this season with an injury but finished 13-2 and was ranked in the top-10 in the nation. He is made his third appearance at the NCAA Championships. Cleveland had a 21-match winning streak and had not lost since the 2009 NCAAs before dropping both matches at this year’s national event. He was 8-0 in Nov. 2010 when he suffered a knee injury at the Indiana Duals that put him out of action for the next year. He went 4-2 at the NCAAs during his All-American run through the wrestlebacks in 2008. He was 0-2 in a return trip in 2009. After missing 2010 with an injury, Cleveland is looking to snap a three-match losing streak at the national tournament.

last two NCAAs. McCroskey went 2-2 at 184 in last year’s championships. He won his opening round match before moving down to the wrestlebacks. He was 0-2 at 174 as a freshman in 2009. McCroskey has a 61-37 record in three seasons, and made three trips to the NCAA Tournament. An excellent student, he is a two-time Academic All-NWCA and an Academic All-SoCon performer. He currently carries a 3.63 g.p.a., majoring in Engineering, and plans to graduate in May. SENIOR CODY STOKES Cody Stokes may go down as having one of the most impressive winning percentages in school history. He scored a pin in his only match as a Moc against Gardner-Webb during the 2007-08 season. He is majoring in Education and also plans to graduate in May. MOCS AT THE NCAAS Chattanooga has been represented at the NCAA Wrestling Championships every year since moving up to Division I in 1978. The Mocs’ best finish was a tie for 14th in 1983. UTC has scored points every year except for 1997, 2003 and 2011. Chattanooga finished in tied for 65th place with no points in 2011. UTC’s second-best result came in 2007 when they came in 21st. They also tied for 21st in 2005. Individually, the Mocs have 12 All-American honors won by nine different wrestlers. Cody Cleveland was the last to earn All-American status, finishing eighth at 141 in 2008. The best individual finish was Charlie Heard’s runner-up at 118 in 1983. SOCON CHAMPIONS AGAIN The Mocs are coming off an 11-9 campaign that includes a perfect 5-0 mark in Southern Conference matches. UTC has won seven consecutive SoCon regular season titles and owns a 35-match winning streak in league action. Chattanooga won its sixth SoCon Tournament in the last seven years and its 27th in the 34 years as a member of the conference. HEAD COACH HEATH ESLINGER

Cleveland only lost one SoCon match in his impressive UTC career. That was his first league bout during his freshman season. He fell to UNC Greensboro’s Chris Bencivenga 13-12 on Jan. 27, 2007. Since then, he went 22-0 against SoCon opponents with three league titles. Cleveland finished a 75-26 record during his career at UTC and is nine wins shy of the top-10 all-time at UTC. He has already completed a degree in Criminal Justice and is currently pursuing an M.B.A. SENIOR MATT LETTNER Senior heavyweight Matt Lettner has fought through injuries throughout his career. He went 9-14 this season, finishing fourth in the SoCon Tournament. He was 25-35 in his career. Majoring in General Management, Lettner has been on the Dean’s List for each of the last four semesters and plans to graduate in May. JUNIOR JASON MCCROSKEY McCroskey still has one year of eligibility remaining, but the fourth-year junior called it a career on the mat following the 2011 season. A former SoCon Champion and the 2009 SoCon Freshman of the Year, McCroskey led the team with a 23-11 record. He was ranked in the top-20 during the regular season. McCroskey (Soddy Daisy, Tenn.) is the only Moc who went to each of the

Feb. 6. The win clinched the Mocs’ 27-10 victory in Boone. MCCROSKEY NAMED STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK Junior Jason McCroskey (Soddy Daisy, Tenn.) was the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for February 9. McCroskey capped the Mocs’ comeback in a 20-18 win over UNC Greensboro with a pin over Elijah Adams over the weekend. Chattanooga fell behind 15-5 after the first five matches, but fought its way back to 15-14 with McCroskey set to take the mat in the 184 pound match. At the 2:54 mark, McCroskey put Adams on his back to seal Chattanooga’s 32nd-straight SoCon regular season win. McCroskey is a two-time Academic All-SoCon and two-time Academic All-NWCA honoree. He holds a 3.63 GPA in engineering. The SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week is given to individuals with at least a 3.2 g.p.a. who have excelled in competition during their championship seasons. MOCS INK TOP-25 RECRUITING CLASS The Mocs have inked one of the top-25 early-season recruiting classes according to Wrestling Insider News (WIN) magazine. Chattanooga received its top-25 ranking thanks to four prep wrestlers who signed National Letters of Intent in November. This group is highlighted by three high school state champions, including Marvin Lopez (Cleveland, Tenn.), William Kennedy (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) and Nick Soto (Spring Hill, Fla.) and also includes Fairfield, Ohio, native Austin Sams. MOCS PICKED 2ND IN THE SOCON POLLS Despite carrying a six-year, 30-match SoCon duals win streak into the season the Mocs were picked second in the preseason polls behind UNC Greensboro. UTC earned two first-place votes and 21 points overall in the balloting. UNCG took the top spot with four first place votes and 23 points. The Mocs are followed by Appalachian State (16), The Citadel (16), VMI (8) and Davidson (6). Chattanooga also had three preseason all-conference wrestlers on the squad, including two-time SoCon champion Cody Cleveland at 141 pounds. Cleveland, the SoCon champion at 141 and Tournament Most Outstanding Wrestler in both 2008 and ‘09 as well as the 2009 SoCon Co-Wrestler of the Year, missed the majority of last season with an injury. Chattanooga’s Dean Pavlou (149) and Dan Waddell (157) were also voted to the preseason all-league team.

NCAA MOCS ALSO EXCEL IN THE CLASSROOM Five of the six Mocs competing at the NCAA Championships were on the Athletics Director’s Honor roll for posting a 3.0+ g.p.a. during the 2010 fall semester, including Cody Cleveland, Josh Condon, Demetrius Johnson, Jason McCroskey and Brandon Wright. Three of the six - Johnson, McCroskey, Wright - were on the Dean’s List in the fall and have earned Academic All-NWCA honors in their careers. CLEVELAND NAMED SOCON WRESTLER OF THE MONTH Senior Cody Cleveland was named the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Month for February 2011. A three-time SoCon champion, Cleveland was 4-0 in the month of February, all in league action. His strong February propelled him to an All-SoCon selection and the 2011 SoCon title at 141 pounds. Two of Cleveland’s victories came via technical fall while a third was a major decision. He capped his UTC career with a 21-1 mark against Southern Conference opponents. His victories in the month of February enabled Chattanooga to wrap up its seventh consecutive regular season title while extending its conference win streak to 35 matches. WRIGHT NAMED WRESTLER OF THE WEEK Junior Brandon Wright was the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week for all competitions from February 2-8. He scored a 3-2 win over two-time defending SoCon Champion Bryon Sigmon in the Mocs’ furious comeback victory against UNC Greensboro on Feb. 5. He followed that up with a 14-5 major decision over Appalachian State’s Carter Downs on

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

rick hart

director of athletics

Year while five Mocs have been named the SoCon Female Athletes of the Year.

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 student-athletes’ quest for comprehensive excellence – academically, athletically and socially. Academically • 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 for the Mocs. • 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. • Added staff to both the Compliance and Academic Services departments to help student-athletes progress toward the ultimate goal of earning a college degree. 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. • 20 student-athletes selected as SoCon Athletes of the

Socially • Encouraged Chattanooga student-athletes in their involvement with many local community projects and charity work and has personally served as a member of the Chattanooga Rotary, the Grand Marshal of the 2007 Region 4 Special Olympics and is a sought-after speaker among the area’s many civic organizations. • Cultivated and maintained relationships with local and national press that has led to unequalled media attention for a program of this size. • During the men’s basketball NCAA Tournament run in 2009, the NBC’s “Late Show with Jimmy Fallon” adopted the Mocs as its team of the tournament. The week-long exposure brought in an estimated $500,000 of advertising and national exposure for UTC. • Expanded educational programming for student-athletes, coaches and staff as part of a commitment to learning and personal and professional development. • Focused attention on strengthening the relationship between Mocs Athletics and the UTC campus community. 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. Revenue Generation/Fundraising/Attendance • Signed an exclusive, long-term marketing rights deal with Learfield Sports that guarantees record revenues from advertising and marketing with UTC Athletics. • Restructured the Mocs Club, resulting in nearly a 20% increase in the number of members over the last two years. • Secured three major gifts from UTC benefactors that totaled over $2 million in the past three years. • Excluding these three major gifts, the Mocs Club capped the $1 million mark for each of the last two years. • Implemented a donor program for football season ticket sales, hospitality and parking. • Overall ticket revenues have increased nearly 35% since Hart’s first year. • Women’s basketball has led the SoCon in attendance in each of Hart’s five years. • Football set a school record with over 2,600 season tickets sold in 2010. UTC football has broken ticket sales marks in each of the last two seasons. Facilities • Completed the state-of-the-art Brenda Lawson StudentAthlete Success Center which includes the Wolford Family Strength and Conditioning and Chattem Basketball Practice Facilities.

• Completed major improvements to Scrappy Moore Field with the opening of the Murphy-Haugerud Football Practice Complex at Scrappy Moore Field. • Partnered with the City of Chattanooga and The First Tee to construct the Player Development Complex for the golf teams. • Enhanced the Football Locker Room, Visiting Team Basketball Locker Rooms, Academic Computer Lab and Administrative Offices • Installed video boards in McKenzie Arena • Acquired land needed to develop plans and a funding model for an on-campus facility for Track & Field and Women’s Soccer. Coaches • Ignited fans everywhere with the hiring of Russ Huesman, a former Moc letter winner, in December 2008 to “Restore the Glory” to Chattanooga Football. • Orchestrated Jeff Clark’s return to the head coaching position of the women’s tennis program in 2007. • Hired former Moc Heath Eslinger to head the wresting program in 2009. Eslinger won the Mocs’ sixth-straight SoCon regular season title in 2010. • Hired Travis Filar to take over the volleyball program in February 2011. 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 – including a balanced budget four of his five years. Hart arrived on the UTC campus after serving seven years at the University of Oklahoma in various athletics administrative 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, have a son, Trevor, 12, and a daughter, Caroline, 9. 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.

Academically

• Over last eight semesters, the studentathlete grade point average has risen from 2.51 (Spring 2007) to 2.97. • 53 student-athletes earned degrees in 2010-11. • School-record 78 student-athletes named to the fall, winter and spring Academic AllSouthern Conference Teams.

Athletically

• Four teams won SoCon titles in 201011, 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 student-athletes again took part in Operation MoveIn, 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.

Southern conference The Southern Conference, which began its 91st season of intercollegiate competition in 2011, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference 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 Southern Conference’s tradition. Hundreds of Southern Conference student-athletes have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America and all-district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in five states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. Wrestling programs in the league include full members Appalachian State, Chattanooga, The Citadel and Davidson and affiliates Campbell, Gardner-Webb and VMI. Southern Illinois-Edwardsville will join the SoCon as a wrestling affiliate in 2012-13. The Southern Conference offices are located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the league first class meeting areas and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. Membership History On Feb. 25, 1921, representatives from 14 of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (SIAA) 30 members met at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hotel to establish the Southern Intercollegiate Conference. On hand at the inaugural meeting were officials from Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn), Clemson, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology (Georgia Tech), Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and Washington & Lee. Dr. S.V. Sanford of Georgia was chosen as acting chairman and N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee was named secretary. The decision to form a new athletic conference was motivated by the desire to have a workable number of conference games for each league member. Play began in the fall of 1921 and a year later, six more schools joined the fledgling league including Tulane (which had attended the inaugural meeting but had elected not to join), Florida, LSU, Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929.

2011-12 Mocs wrestling

By the 1930s, membership in the Southern Conference had reached 23 schools. C.P. “Sally” Miles of Virginia Tech, president of the Southern Conference, called the annual league meeting to order on Dec. 9, 1932 at the Farragut Hotel in Knoxville, Tenn. Georgia’s Dr. Sanford announced that 13 institutions west and south of the Appalachian Mountains were reorganizing as the Southeastern Conference. Members of the new league included Alabama, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Florida, Georgia, Georgia School of Technology, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mississippi A&M, University of the South, Tennessee, Tulane and Vanderbilt. The Southern Conference continued with membership of 10 institutions including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, VMI, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. The second major shift occurred some 20 years later. By 1952, the Southern Conference included 17 colleges and universities. Another

split occurred when seven schools including Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest departed to form the Atlantic Coast Conference which began play in 1953. The revamped Southern Conference included members The Citadel, Davidson, Furman, George Washington, Richmond, VMI, Virginia Tech, Washington & Lee, West Virginia and William & Mary. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that includes 12 institutions and a footprint that spans five states: Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, Chattanooga, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Samford, Western Carolina and Wofford.

Coaches and Administrators The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Rupp guided the Wildcats to a 30-5 mark during the 1931 and 1932 seasons. Yet, for all his coaching accomplishments, Rupp never led Kentucky to a Southern Conference tournament championship. Case mentored the Wolfpack to six consecutive Southern Conference Tournament championships from 1947 through 1952. Lefty Driesell coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Driesell also won the league’s Coach of the Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach of the Year honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State and is now the head coach at the College of Charleston. Terry Holland saw his basketball coaching career take off at Davidson when he returned to his alma mater in 1970. Holland was honored as the Southern Conference Coach of the Year for three consecutive seasons from 197072 and led the Wildcats to the conference tournament title and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1970. J. Dallas Shirley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, spent 21 years as the assistant to the commissioner and supervisor of officials in the Southern Conference. He also served as president of the International Association Basketball Officials and the United States Olympic Basketball Committee. The legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant got his coaching start in the Southern Conference as he guided the Maryland Terrapins in 1945. Another famous Southern Conference football coach is the late Frank Howard of Clemson, who guided the Tigers as a league member from 194052. The incomparable Howard won 69 Southern Conference games. The Southern Conference has been represented on the sidelines at five Super Bowls in recent years. Bobby Ross, who piloted the San Diego Chargers to the 1996 Super Bowl, was the head coach at The Citadel from 1973-77. Former Buffalo Bills head coach Marv Levy directed William & Mary from 1964-68. He was succeeded at William & Mary by Lou Holtz. William & Mary competed in the Southern Conference from 193677.
