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

season preview 2013-14 Outlook

Ever since the Mocs became a member of the Southern Conference back in 1977, they have dominated wrestling competition. Chattanooga has won 27 of the 36 team titles since joining the league and scored countless numbers of individual crowns.

Chattanooga lost four starters to graduation, including Brown (197), Condon (165), Dean Pavlou (141) and Robert Prigmore (174). Soto, Hudson and Malone join sophomore John Lampe (165) and junior Trey Stavrum (157) as returning starters and a solid core of returners.

UTC rolled through the 2012-13 regular season with a 7-0 record and won the SoCon Tournament in Lexington, Va. Alex Hudson, Nick Soto, Josh Condon and Niko Brown all took home individual championships.

Lampe (Fairdale, Ky.) went 15-11 and 5-0 in SoCon matches in 2013, earning a spot on the All-SoCon team and the SoCon All-Freshman squad. He lost in overtime of the SoCon finals, but is looking to make UTC has two experienced competia run at the NCAAs in 2014.

The SoCon coaches picked Chattanooga to win the league again in 2014, and it looks like head coach Heath Eslinger has put together a team to do just that. Soto, a junior from Spring Hill, Fla., was the 125 champion in 2013, but moves back to 133 where he won the SoCon as a freshman in 2012. With a 51-16 career record, Soto should quickly get back in the top20 rankings where he has spent most of his career. He is one of two Mocs on the preseason All-SoCon team. Hudson is the lone senior on the squad and is also moving up a weight. The Marietta, Ga., native won the SoCon at 149 last season, but will now compete at 157. Junior Kevin Malone (Carrollton, Ga.) is the other member of the preseason All-SoCon team. He was runner-up at heavyweight last year and is working to advance to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in his career.

Southern conference The Southern Conference, which begins its 93rd season of intercollegiate competition in 2013, 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 has been on the forefront of innovation and originality in developing creative solutions to address issues facing intercollegiate athletics. From establishing the first conference basketball tournament (1921), to tackling the issue of freshman eligibility (1922), to developing women’s championships (1984), to becoming the first conference to install the 3-point goal in basketball (1980), the Southern Conference has been a pioneer.

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. With 30 schools in the SIAA by the early 1920s, it was impossible to play every school at least once during the regular season and many schools went several years between playing some conference members. In addition, in 1920, the SIAA voted down proposed rules that an athlete must be in a college a year before playing on its teams and refused to abolish a rule permitting athletes to play summer baseball for money.

According to the minutes of the meeting, Dr. Sanford stated that the division was made along geographical lines. Florida’s Dr. J.J. Tigert, acting as spokesman for the withdrawing group, regretted the move but believed it was necessary as the Southern Conference had grown too large. The resignations were accepted and the withdrawing schools formed the new league, which began play in 1933. 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 Southern Conference is the nation’s fiftholdest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association.
