ESPN focuses on Rhodes ‘College Gameday’ interviews Blue Raider for Veterans Day feature

The Daily News Journal

MURFREESBORO — More than two months after MTSU football player and Marine Steven Rhodes stepped into the national spotlight, he still does not have cable TV. That means he will likely miss his appearance on ESPN’s “College Gameday” as a special Veterans Day piece on Saturday (811 a.m.). “I didn’t see much of the media stuff about me before, and there’s a chance I won’t see this one either,” Rhodes said. “And it’s not because I can’t get cable. I just don’t have time. I’m just focused on family, football and school right now. “As soon as I do this with ESPN, I have homework to do.” An ESPN crew interviewed Rhodes and shot additional footage after MTSU’s practice Tuesday night.

Rhodes will lead the team and carry the U.S. flag onto the field for MTSU’s Salute to Armed Services game at 3 p.m. Saturday versus Florida International at Floyd Stadium. The Blue Raiders will wear patriotic helmets with red, white and blue logos at the game. “It’s an honor to carry the flag. I did it (in the Marines), and I’m proud to do it now,” Rhodes said. Rhodes, a Marine sergeant, drew national attention in August when The Daily News Journal broke a story about the NCAA’s refusal to grant him immediate eligibility to play this season because he participated in military-only recreational league football games at a Marine base in 2012. Virtually every major news organization picked up Rhodes’ story. Social media pounded away at the NCAA for postpon-

MIDDLE TENNESSEE FOOTBALL

Head Coach Rick Stockstill

goblueraiders.com

RICK STOCKSTILL

8TH SEASON AT MIDDLE TENNESSEE ALMA MATER: FLORIDA STATE, 1982 Winning on the field, off the field and having a firstclass football program from top to bottom is the goal of any University at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics. That is exactly what Middle Tennessee has as a result of the leadership of Head Coach Rick Stockstill. In his eighth season at the helm of the Blue Raiders, Stockstill has captured a league title, won the 2009 New Orleans Bowl, made four bowl appearances, been bowl eligible five times, earned two public recognition awards from the NCAA for APR success, appeared on television 69 times, produced six of the top eight crowds in Floyd Stadium history, and had back-to-back eight-win seasons for the first time in 21 years. Under his watch, the Blue Raiders have also produced five all-American’s, including one academic all-American, three defensive players of the year, and a bowl game MVP. Middle Tennessee also became the first Sun Belt team to win 10 games in a season, and set the Floyd Stadium single-game attendance record. He also has three NFL Draft picks with Erik Walden in 2008, Chris McCoy in 2010, and Rod Issac in 2011. After winning eight games in 2012 and being left out of a bowl game, Stockstill showed his bounce back ability once again by leading the Raiders to another eight-win season and a trip to the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces bowl. The Blue Raiders were among the

TWO-TIME CONFERENCE COACH OF THE YEAR national leaders in turnovers gained (3rd), turnover margin (10th), fewest penalties (10th), fewest penalty yards (28th) and rushing (27th). Some regard the 2012 season as his best coaching job after leading the Blue Raiders to the nation’s biggest win improvement from the previous year. His seventh

MT squad went 8-4, won an FBS school record five road games, received votes in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll three straight weeks, and upset ACC Coastal Division

2013 BELL HELICOPTER ARMED FORCES BOWL MIDDLE TENNESSEE FOOTBALL

Champion Georgia Tech. Along the way, he produced a freshman all-American, eight all-conference players, and a national offensive player of the week. In 2010, Stockstill’s team battled back from a tough start to make back-to-back bowl games for the first time in school history. The coach also had an Academic All-American in Jeremy Kellem, the SBC Defensive Player of the Year in Jamari Lattimore, and a total of nine players who were recognized on the AllConference team. The 2009 season was one for the record books as that squad accomplished what few believed possible with an FBS-record 10 wins, a final ranking of 33rd nationally in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll, a bowl victory, a seven-game winning streak, the most Sun Belt victories in school history, five road victories, and a second straight undefeated month of November. It all resulted in Stockstill being named SBC Co-Coach of the Year and 11 players earning All-Conference honors, including co-Defensive Player of the Year Chris McCoy, who was taken in the 7th round of the NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. To top things off, quarterback Dwight Dasher earned New Orleans Bowl MVP honors and became just the fourth player in NCAA history to pass for more than 2,500 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season. Stockstill, who owns upsets over Maryland (2008

Back-to-Back 8-Win Seasons

Two-Time Coach of the Year and 2009) and Georgia Tech (2012), has also shown a commitment to academics during his tenure. The Blue Raiders have gone from an APR score of 892 to a very impressive 983, the biggest increase of any program in the country. The Blue Raiders were also crowned with the Sun Belt Conference Academic Award on two occasions (2006-07, 2007-08) and earned two public recognition awards from the NCAA for APR success (2011, 2012). For his efforts, Stockstill was inducted as an honorary member into Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society in April 2010. After 24 years as an assistant, Stockstill was given the chance to run his own program, and all he did was lead the Blue Raiders to a 2006 Sun Belt Conference championship, help set a new single-season attendance record, and take the program to its first postseason bowl game in the I-A era. Taking a Middle Tennessee team predicted to finish sixth in the Sun Belt during the preseason to a league title, Stockstill ended up as the 2006 Sun Belt

Conference Coach of the Year and the Tennessee Sports Writers Association Coach of the Year while also garnering that honor from ESPN.com. Stockstill’s teams have amassed the top four tackles for loss and quarterback sack totals in school history and has produced the conference’s top touchdown scorer twice. Individual players have 47 All-Conference honors and two Player of the Year Awards, and there have been four different National Player of the Week winners. During the 2006 championship run, Stockstill and his staff developed an All-American, 11 All-Conference players, 11 SBC Player of the Week winners, a consensus National Defensive Player of the Week (Damon Nickson won the Walter Camp and the Bronco Nagurski awards), and the school’s all-time sacks leader (Erik Walden). Much of the team’s success was attributed to their play on the road that year; the Blue Raiders won four conference road games. Only 10 other teams nationally could stake that claim.

Along with his extensive background in collegiate coaching circles, the driven and determined Stockstill has had the advantage of working alongside some of the greatest minds in college football history. Stockstill, who made his way to Murfreesboro after spending the previous two years at South Carolina, has worked with legendary coaches Lou Holtz, Steve Spurrier, Danny Ford, Tommy Bowden, Ken Hatfield, and Tommy West. Stockstill demonstrated the ability to develop and coach big-time players throughout his career as an assistant. He joined the Gamecock staff in December 2003 and immediately made an impact in recruiting.

in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. In addition to his on-field coaching at Carolina, Stockstill coordinated the signing of a top-20 recruiting class for the Gamecocks in his first season and was recognized as one of the top 25 recruiters in the nation by Rivals.com. From 1989 to 2002, Stockstill was on the coaching staff at Clemson, where he helped lead the Tigers to some of their most proficient offensive performances in school history. He served in a variety of capacities during his tenure with Clemson, working as recruiting coordinator, wide receivers coach, co-offensive coordinator, passing game coordinator, and quarterbacks coach. One of his prize pupils was All-America wide receiver Rod Gardner, who was the number 15 pick of the 2001 NFL Draft. Stockstill played an integral role in Clemson’s offense, which set more than 100 school records from 1998 to 2002. Stockstill is credited with recruiting Clemson’s all-time leading rusher (Raymond Priester), third all-time leading passer (Woodrow Dantzler), and number three and number four all-time leading receivers (Derrick Hamilton and Rod Gardner). As a coach, Stockstill has been a part of 16 bowl games, including three as a head coach. Stockstill also has coaching experience at the University of Central Florida (198588), where he tutored wide receiver Shawn Jefferson, who went on to a 13year career in the NFL, and at BethuneCookman College (1983-84). Born Dec. 23, 1957 in Sidney, Ohio, Stockstill grew up in Georgetown, Ky., and then moved to Fernandina Beach, Fla., where he was inducted into the Fernandina Beach Hall of Fame in 2006. He was a three-year letterman at Florida State as a quarterback, where he was team captain and earned Honorable Mention All-America honors in 1981 under Coach Bobby Bowden. During his career at FSU, the Seminoles had two top-10 final Associated Press rankings and had wins over powers Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Ohio State, and Nebraska. Stockstill, who received his bachelor’s degree from FSU in 1982, made three bowl trips with the Seminoles. Stockstill and his wife, the former Sara Fleischman, have a son, Brent, and a daughter, Emily.

Chris Massaro Back-to-Back 8-Win Seasons

Director of Athletics l 9th Year l Northern Colorado, 1983 The landscape of college athletics has changed drastically over the past decade and that renovation also has been demonstrated at Middle Tennessee, particularly during the eightplus years since Chris Massaro was named director of athletics on April 8, 2005. Proving to be a true visionary, Massaro has helped revolutionize the Blue Raiders’ athletic department while helping pave the way for even greater success in future years. With Massaro’s leadership that vision took an historical step on November 29, 2012 when the University accepted an invitation to join Conference USA. The Blue Raiders became official members on July 1, 2013. Along with growing the Middle Tennessee athletic program, Massaro has been instrumental on numerous national boards and committees. He was appointed to the NCAA Football Issues Committee in March 2008, served as a member of the prestigious NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee for the 2010-11 season, and recently was appointed to the NCAA Division I Leadership Council. He is also currently the president of the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. Massaro, who spent 20 years at South Carolina prior to arriving at Middle Tennessee, has seen record numbers in fundraising during his tenure. Under his leadership, the athletic program raised $6 million dollars in private monies for the new baseball stadium; saw the largest unrestricted gift in athletic history of $1 million by Jeff Hendrix, while also gaining a $500,000 gift from Ken Shipp for the new women’s basketball office suite. The Shipp gift is the largest in school history for women’s sports. Along with a 180 percent increase in the BRAA’s annual giving, Massaro has seen corporate sponsorships more than triple since his arrival. Since his arrival, Massaro has enhanced the Blue Raiders’ broad-based, 17-sport program. Among the accomplishments included in the last eight-plus years: • The Athletic Department captured seven Sun Belt Conference All-Sports Trophy’s. • The Blue Raiders were 76th in the 2008-09 NACDA Cup, the highest finish in school history, then turned in a 78th place showing in 2009-10. • The athletic program has had a record 46 nationally televised events during his tenure. • Middle Tennessee’s football program has appeared in four bowl games: the 2006 Motor City Bowl, the 2009 New Orleans Bowl, the 2011 GoDaddy.com Bowl, and the 2013 Armed Forces Bowl. The Blue Raiders won the New Orleans Bowl and finished with a 10-3 record and a No. 33 national ranking. • The women’s volleyball team reached the Sweet 16 for the first time in 2007 and has made six NCAA appearances the last eight years. • The men’s golf team has made five NCAA Regional appearances in last six years, including a trip to the NCAA Championships in 2008 to finish 15th nationally. • The men’s basketball program turned in a record 27-7 season in 2011-12 to win the SBC regular season title then followed that with a 28-6 mark and a trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2012-13. • The women’s basketball team has made the NCAA Tournament five times while also winning four Sun Belt Conference tournament titles. The program has also produced the nation’s leading scorer three of the last six seasons. • The Middle Tennessee tennis doubles team of Marco Born and Andreas Siljestrom won the National Championship in 2007 – the first NCAA doubles title in Athletic Department history. • The Middle Tennessee track teams have combined for six conference titles. The 2007 men’s outdoor squad finished No. 21 in the nation, and the 2009 women’s indoor team ranked tied for 30th.

• The Blue Raider baseball team captured the regular season and tournament championship in 2009 and advanced to the NCAAs. • The women’s soccer program won the 2010 SBC Championship and advanced to their first NCAA Tournament. Massaro’s success at Middle Tennessee doesn’t stop with the athletic teams. There has been a tremendous track record for hiring quality coaches with head football coach Rick Stockstill, women’s head basketball coach Rick Insell, men’s golf coach Whit Turnbow, and men’s tennis coach Jimmy Borendame – all Massaro hires – each earning Sun Belt Coach of the Year in their first seasons. In all, Massaro’s guidance has provided coaches with the resources to produce 38 conference titles, 33 NCAA team postseason appearances, two Sun Belt Conference Overall Athletes of the Year, and 26 Coach of the Year awards. Academic enhancement has also skyrocketed under Massaro’s leadership. Massaro, who was appointed to a panel on APR Improvement Plans for the 2007 NCAA Convention, inherited a football program with a national-low score of 812 and saw it increase to 990 (on a 1,000-point scale) in 2009. All 17 Middle Tennessee sports teams achieved passing marks of 930 or higher four their fouryear average through 2011-12 and seven teams turned in a perfect mark of 1,000 in 2011-12. Football and men’s golf have each been recognized publicly by the NCAA for APR success. Facility upgrades also have been at the top of Massaro’s impressive list of accomplishments. He completed a $6 million capital campaign for the new baseball stadium and initiated a series of major renovations to existing athletic facilities during the previous seven years, including a state-of-the-art soccer and track complex, a state-of-the-art golf performance center, and the Ken Shipp Women’s Basketball Office suite. Most recently, construction was completed on the new Jeff Hendrix Stadium Club in time for the 2012 season and a new Indoor Tennis Facility had a ground breaking on Oct. 28, 2013. In the midst of numerous upgrades, Massaro also has initiated generous contributions that made it possible to install a new synthetic surface in Floyd Stadium for the 2006 season. Additionally, new videoboards – one for football and two inside Murphy Center – were installed in 2007 and a new fence around the entire stadium was put in place in 2011. Massaro has also made a significant upgrade in the Blue Raider football schedule since his arrival. He brought Virginia out of the ACC to Floyd Stadium in 2007 and then inked Maryland to play in Murfreesboro in 2008. In 2009, Massaro had Mississippi State come to Floyd Stadium to make them the first SEC program to play in a Sun Belt stadium and the Blue Raiders entertained Georgia Tech in 2011. Future schedules will see the Blue Raiders playing home games against BYU (2014) and Vanderbilt (2015, 2017). The Glenwood Springs, Colo., native joined the South Carolina staff under the Ohio University sport administration program in 1985. Massaro earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Northern Colorado in 1983 and his master’s degree in sport administration from Ohio University in 1986. At UNC, Massaro was a five-year football team member. Massaro is also heavily involved in community service projects and organizations. He is a member of the Red Cross Board, the City Golf Commission and the Rutherford County Sports Council Executive Committee, and he served on the search committee for the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce president. Massaro and his wife, Cindy, have four children: Hank, Lainey, Rachel, and Ben.

1960 Tangerine Bowl

Orlando, FL Middle Tennessee 21, Presbyterian 12

Orlando, FL - Before the bewildering eyes of 12,500 (largest crowd ever at the time), and against a well-balanced Presbyterian team, the Blue Raiders galloped far and wide for a 21-12 win in the 14th annual Tangerine Bowl classic. Called by some as the best played bowl game on the New Year’s schedule, the Blue Raiders almost made a rout of it in the first half, but some fancy manuvering by the Blue Hose, kept them in the game. Bucky Pitts scored two touchdowns, one on a beautiful punt return, to pace the Blue Raiders to their first bowl win in school history. Pitts, the little speedster from Fayetteville, had 59 yards in nine rushes to lead a Blue Raider infantry attack that ground out 240 yards. MT built a 14-6 halftime lead then had to stave off a tremendous rally led by Presbyterian quarterback Bob Waters, later of the San Francisco 49ers.

1961 Tangerine Bowl

Orlando, FL Lamar Tech 21, Middle Tennessee 14

Orlando, FL - Making their second Tangerine Bowl appearance in three seasons, the Blue Raiders fell to another bunch of tough Texans. It was an even battle for nearly the entire game then a freak play decided the issue. A Lamar field goal attempt fell short of the mark but was inadvertently touched by a Blue Raider and a Tech player fell on it in the end zone for a touchdown.

1964 Grantland Rice Bowl Murfreesboro, TN Middle Tennessee 20, Muskingum 0

Murfreesboro, TN - A rugged defense paced the OVC champion Blue Raiders to a 20-0 win in the first Grantland Rice Bowl ever played. The site was MT’s own Horace Jones Field. The Blue Raider defense held Muskingum to only 72 yards in total offense and scored a touchdown on a 99-yard fumble return by end Ray Neal with only 44 seconds left in the game. It also marked the final collegiate game as a player for longtime Blue Raider coach Boots Donnelly. Middle Tennessee opened the scoring in the first quarter when David Petty scored on a 1-yard run to make it 7-0. The teams both went scoreless in the second and third quarter before the Blue Raiders broke it open in the fourth. Teddy Morris ran five yards for a touchdown to make it 14-0 before Neal put up the final points with his intercepted fumble return. Morris finished 10 for 18 in the passing department for 142 yards, while Bob Hlodan paced the ground attack with 110 yards on 19 carries. Hlodan went on to be named the game’s Most Valuable Player.

Evansville, IN - The Blue Raiders carried an OVC championship and a 7-2 record into the first bowl game in the school’s history, but the occasion was ruined by a powerful Sam Houston team. Led by Little All-American fullback Terry Sweeney, the Blue Raiders amassed 290 yards of total offense but mistakes killed their hopes for a win. The Blue Raiders lost a total of four fumbles while Sam Houston had just one miscue in the hard-fought contest.
