EXPLANATIONS OF

The standard created by the Chattanooga Mocs wrestling team. A norm for work ethic, character and responsibility accepted by the entire program that is exceptionally higher than what is expected. This is a mindset that is implemented by socialization through the behaviors of those who have already become Chattanooga Strong. Newcomers then develop this quality, or typically do not endure. Therefore, Chattanooga Strong is a trait that is learned, cultivated and accepted, not genetically natural to an individual. Dean Pavlou, Senior Two-Time Southern Conference Champion

Chattanooga Strong is a mantra that encapsulates what it means to be a part of the rich tradition of Chattanooga Mocs Wrestling. It is a mindset that each member of the program has to have in order to be successful, academically, athletically and socially. Chattanooga Strong is not just a tagline, but an attitude that guides, encourages and supports everyone in our program as we all pursue the quest for comprehensive excellence. Head Coach Heath Eslinger Four-Time SoCon Champion 2011 SoCon Coach of the Year

The brand of Chattanooga wrestling; the embodiment of hard work coupled with integrity and the fortitude to do the right thing in all aspects of an athlete’s life. The brand represents all of the principles required to be a successful student-athlete, and provides Chattanooga wrestlers with a tangible model to strive for in shaping their lives. Chattanooga Strong represents what Chattanooga wrestling has become and is continually moving toward. Dan Waddell (2008-12) Two-Time Southern Conference Champion

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. 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 The Cowcatcher logo has been recentnavy blue and old gold. ly modified, but is still in use by UTC Athletics.

season preview 2012-13 Outlook

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team enters the fourth year of the Heath Eslinger era in 2012-13. The Mocs have won the Southern Conference Regular Season and/or Tournament in each of his first three seasons and are looking to build on a long history of success. One of the most successful programs in the SoCon, UTC wrestling has won the league 27 times in 35 campaigns since 1978. The Mocs have won the regular season and/ or the tournament title in each of the last eight seasons and are picked as the league favorite in 2013. Chattanooga is looking to extend its success beyond the conference ranks and start making noise on the national level. Below is a weight-byweight breakdown of those who hope to accomplish that goal in the upcoming year: 125: Sophomore Nick Soto (Spring Hill, Fla.) was the SoCon Freshman of the Year after winning the league at 133. He ranked in the top-15 in the nation following a second-place finish at the Southern Scuffle, but decided to drop down to 125 this season. He tied for the team lead with a 25-8 overall record and is a preseason All-SoCon selection heading into 2012-13. His backup will be freshman Zach Bridson (Sandown, N.H.). Bridson is a four-time New Hampshire state champion and was a Senior National All-American in 2012. Also competing at 125 is freshman Campbell Lewis (Soddy Daisy, Tenn.).

Southern conference The Southern Conference, which began its 92nd season of intercollegiate competition in 2012, 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, Southern Illinois-Edwardsville and VMI. 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. By the 1930s, membership in the Southern

2012-13 Mocs wrestling

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 1940-52. 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.
