SOUTHERN CONFERENCE HISTORY The Southern Conference The Southern Conference, which is in its 97th season of intercollegiate competition in 2017-18, 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 postseason college 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.

#SoConHoops

The Southern Conference is the nation’s fiftholdest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pac-12 (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 CoSIDA Academic All-America and all-district teams. A total of 20 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions, most recently in 2012-13, when former Wofford volleyball player Rachel Woodlee earned the prestigious award. The conference currently consists of 10 members in six states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 22 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The league added rifle, becoming just the second Division I conference to sponsor the sport, in 2016-17, and added women’s lacrosse for the 2017-18 campaign.

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. 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, Louisiana (LSU), Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. VMI joined in 1925 and Duke was added in 1929. 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. 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 second major shift occurred some 20 years later. By 1952, the Southern Conference included 17 colleges and universities. Another split occurred when seven schools – 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. A third major shift occurred in 2012-13, when five members announced their departures and three schools were added. College of Charleston announced its decision to leave for the Colonial Athletic Association following the 2012-13 season, while Appalachian State (Sun Belt), Davidson (Atlantic 10), Elon (Colonial) and Georgia Southern (Sun Belt) announced they would depart following the 2013-14 campaign. At the Southern Conference’s 2013 spring meetings in Hilton Head Island, S.C., the league officially extended invitations to former members ETSU and VMI, as well as Mercer, to join the league for the 2014-15 academic year. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that includes 10 institutions and a footprint that spans six states: Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Current league members are The Citadel, ETSU, Furman, Mercer, UNCG, Samford, Chattanooga, VMI, Western Carolina and Wofford. Leadership John Iamarino was officially named commissioner of the conference on Jan. 2, 2006. Iamarino has promoted the Southern

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

SOUTHERN CONFERENCE

The original Southern Conference constitution, drawn up in 1921, is housed in the archives at the league office in Spartanburg, S.C.


SOUTHERN CONFERENCE HISTORY Conference through an ambitious agenda that has improved championships, upgraded compliance -related matters, launched the conference’s Hall of Fame, created the SoCon Academic Exchange and increased the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. He has also guided the league through its recent membership changes, ensuring the Southern Conference’s future viability and stability with the additions of ETSU, Mercer and VMI. The eighth commissioner in Southern Conference history, Iamarino spearheaded the effort to create the SoCon Digital Network, which launched in the fall of 2014, and the league-wide plan to have all 10 member institutions capable of producing ESPN3-ready content by 2017. Iamarino has also orchestrated the addition of three sports in the last four years, starting with men’s lacrosse in 2014-15. Rifle was added in 2016-17, and women’s lacrosse becomes the SoCon’s 22nd varsity sport in 2017-18. The addition of those three sports has attracted a combined 11 associate members.

L l o yd J o rd a n re p l a c e d Wa d e a s t h e commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. In 1987, he was succeeded by Dave Hart, who oversaw the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, N.C., to Asheville, N.C. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball tournament. Waters was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current conference logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. Danny Morrison, who would go on to be president of the Carolina Panthers, headed the conference from 2001-05 and orchestrated the league’s move from Asheville, N.C., to Spartanburg, S.C. Under Morrison’s leadership, the conference increased its marketing and promotional efforts. Championship history The first Southern Conference Championship held after the formation of the league was the basketball tournament in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. Commissioner Germann spearheaded the Southern Conference’s expansion to include women’s athletics during the 1983-84 season.

The 2014 addition of VMI in Lexington, Va., extended the Southern Conference’s reach to six states across the Southeast.

That year, league women’s championships were held in volleyball, basketball and tennis. Cross country joined the mix in 1985, outdoor track and field was added in 1987 and indoor and track and field followed in 1988. The conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of that year. Women’s lacrosse will crown its first champion in May 2018. The Germann Cup, named in honor of the former commissioner, annually recognizes the top women’s athletics programs in the conference. From their humble beginnings, women’s athletics have become an integral part of the Southern Conference and its success. The Southern Conference declares champions in 11 men’s sports – football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, lacrosse, tennis and golf – and 10 women’s sports – soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis, golf, women’s lacrosse and softball. Rifle is a mixed sport. Football The Southern Conference has also excelled as the premier Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) conference. Former Southern Conference member Appalachian State won the three consecutive FCS titles from 200507, becoming the first team to do so. The league boasts more than 250 players who have garnered All-America recognition and numerous national player or coach of the year awards. The conference had at least one team in the top 10 of the final FCS poll for 28 consecutive years (1985-2012), with at least two teams finishing in the final poll in every season from 1982-2013. Chattanooga has finished in the top 10 in each of the last three seasons, while The Citadel has finished in the

top 15 in the last two. The Citadel, Chattanooga, Samford and Wofford each finished in the top 25 in 2016, giving the league four in the final poll for the first time since 2007. The Citadel and Chattanooga ranked 9-10 in the coaches’ poll and Wofford and The Citadel sat 9-10 in the STATS FCS poll to close the year. Th e co n fe re n ce h a s p l a ce d m u l t i p l e representatives in the FCS Playoffs in 28 of 33 seasons, with 16 championship game appearances and eight national titles.

The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke’s Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference.

In 2007, Appalachian State became the first FCS team to defeat a nationally ranked Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team, when the Mountaineers defeated No. 5 Michigan, 34-32, on Sept. 1 before a sellout crowd at Michigan Stadium. Georgia Southern, in its final game as a member of the Southern Conference, downed the SEC’s Florida in Gainesville. The league picked up two wins over FBS teams in 2015, with Furman downing UCF and The Citadel stunning South Carolina. Prior to the conference’s reclassification in 1981, Southern Conference football teams appeared in a total of 36 bowl games, posting a record of 16-18-2. From 1925-30, league schools won five football national championships in a six-year span. There are nearly 60 former Southern Conference players and coaches in the College Football Hall of Fame. One of the most recognizable of these names is former North Carolina running back Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice, who helped guide North Carolina to three bowl appearances. He was a first-team All-America selection and the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 1948 and 1949. In 1949, Justice earned first-team all-conference honors for the fourth consecutive season, becoming the first

SOUTHERN CONFERENCE HISTORY player in league history to achieve that feat. He was a member of the league’s inaugural Hall of Fame Class in 2009. Another of the league’s football products that made it to the College Football Hall of Fame is Sam Huff of West Virginia. Huff was a three-year starter on both the offensive and defensive lines for the Mountaineers. In 1955, Huff earned first-team All-America honors on the field and was a first-team Academic All-American for his work in the classroom. He played 12 seasons in the National Football League for the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins. Also a member of the conference’s first Hall of Fame class, he was a five-time All-Pro linebacker and is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Former Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame in December 2014. The winningest coach in Appalachian State and Southern Conference history, Moore compiled a 21587 record in his 24 seasons at Appalachian State (1989-2012), including 10 SoCon championships, 18 postseason appearances and an unprecedented three straight NCAA Division I FCS/I-AA national titles (2005-07). In 1999, Georgia Southern’s Adrian Peterson captured the Walter Payton Award, presented annually to the Football Championship Subdivision’s most outstanding offensive player. Peterson, a four-time All-American who finished his career as the NCAA Division I leader in rushing yards with 6,559, will be the league’s next inductee into the College Football Hall of Fame when he is enshrined in December 2017. Furman’s Louis Ivory earned the Walter Payton Award in 2000, Georgia Southern’s Jayson Foster was presented with the 2007 trophy and most recently, Appalachian State’s recordsetting quarterback Armanti Edwards became the first two-time winner in Payton Award history after claiming the honors in 2008 and 2009.

Basketball Men’s basketball was the first sport in which the conference held a championship. The league tournament is the nation’s oldest, with the inaugural championship after the formation of the league held at Atlanta’s City Auditorium in 1922 and won by North Carolina. Not only was the Southern Conference tournament the first of its kind, but the league also helped change the face of college basketball. In 1980, the league began a seasonlong experiment with a 22-foot 3-point field goal with the approval of the NCAA Rules Committee. Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made the first 3-point field goal in college basketball history in a game against Middle Tennessee State on Nov. 29, 1980. Another college basketball tradition that originated in the Southern Conference is the traditional cutting of the nets by the winning team in important tournaments. According to USA Today, the practice of net-cutting originated in 1947 with NC State head coach Everett Case. As a first-year head coach, Case led the Wolfpack to the Southern Conference Tournament title. Case celebrated by claiming the nets as a souvenir to commemorate the event. Basketball coaching legend Red Auerbach gave credit to former George Washington coach Bill Reinhart, who coached in the conference for nearly 30 years, as one of the originators of the modern fast-break.

The Atlanta Memorial Auditorium was the site for the first Southern Conference Basketball Championship in 1921. The SoCon basketball tournament is the longest-running of its kind in college basketball history.

SOUTHERN CONFERENCE HISTORY selection, spurred West Virginia to the Final Four in 1959. The Mountaineers lost in the championship game that season to California, 71-70, but West earned Final Four Most Valuable Player honors. West was a three-time Southern Conference tournament MVP, a twotime league regular-season MVP, and was twice named the conference’s Athlete of the Year. He went on to a spectacular career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979. He was a 14-time NBA All-Star while with the Lakers. It is West’s silhouette that comprises the NBA’s globally recognized logo. Frank Selvy set the NCAA record for points in a game while at Furman. On Feb. 13, 1954, the senior scored 100 points in a game against Newberry, a record that still stands. Selvy was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player in 1953 and 1954 and the league’s Athlete of the Year in 1954. He went on to a 10-year career in the NBA. Selvy and his former Lakers teammate West were both enshrined in the league’s Hall of Fame in 2009.

North Carolina advanced to the NCAA championship game in 1943 before falling 43-40 to Oklahoma State. NC State finished third in the tournament in 1950. Davidson continued the record of success by advancing to the NCAA tournament’s Elite Eight in 2008 as coach Bob McKillop’s Wildcats came within a basket of making the Final Four behind the play of sophomore guard Stephen Curry. Curry, a two-time SoCon Male Athlete of the Year winner, led the nation in scoring as a junior at 28.6 points per game and has gone on to star for the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, earning league MVP honors twice and leading the Warriors to NBA titles in 2015 and 2017. He was also inducted into the SoCon Hall of Fame in 2016. Women’s basketball competition began in the Southern Conference in 1983-84 with seven teams.

SOUTHERN CONFERENCE STAFF JOHN IAMARINO COMMISSIONER Now in his 39th year in collegiate athletics, John Iamarino was named the eighth commissioner in Southern Conference history on Jan. 2, 2006. Since then, the Conference has signed an agreement to produce more than 1,800 live events for ESPN3; launched the SoCon Digital Network, which annually carries hundreds of live events; created a Southern Conference Hall of Fame featuring the likes of Jerry West, Arnold Palmer, Sam Huff and Steph Curry; increased the number of championship sports to 22; successfully returned the men’s and women’s basketball championships to the city of Asheville; and emerged from all the NCAA conference realignment with 10 strong institutions in a relatively compact geographic footprint.

#SoConHoops

In 2016-17, Iamarino led the Southern Conference to one of its most competitive seasons in recent years. Four SoCon football teams qualified for the Division I FCS playoffs. The league had its first at-large representative in the NCAA men’s soccer tournament in five years. Samford’s Karisa Nelson won the mile run at the NCAA indoor track & field championships. Men’s basketball posted the best overall RPI the conference has had in 15 years, and the Furman women’s golf team was ranked in the top 10 nationally for most of the season. The SoCon has consistently ranked among the leaders in all of Division I in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate (APR), a predictor of graduation rates. To build on the academic reputation of the league, the SoCon Academic Exchange was created in 2014-15. Through the efforts of the chief academic officers and provosts, the Academic Exchange has initiated a leadership, education and development program for faculty, as well as the first undergraduate research forum in the conference’s history. Iamarino also advocated for creation of the league’s Pinnacle Award in 2016. The award is presented to the student-athlete on the championship-winning team in each SoCon sport with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA). Iamarino, 62, has spent the past 33 years at the conference level, working at both the Sun Belt and Northeast conferences. Prior to joining the SoCon, he served as Commissioner of the Northeast Conference for nine years. During that time, the league launched its first website, approved athletic aid in the sport of football,

increased television coverage from 12 to 30 basketball games, started its first coverage of football on regional television, and initiated more concentrated marketing and merchandising efforts than in the past. At the Sun Belt, he spent 13 years in a variety of publicity, compliance and administrative positions, rising to the level of Associate Commissioner in 1988. When the original Sun Belt merged with the then-American South Conference in 1991, Iamarino was the lone staffer from the original organization to move to the new Sun Belt, heading the transition team for the first true merger of two Division I conferences. He entered the field of intercollegiate athletics as assistant sports information director at Georgetown University in 1979 before moving on to become sports information director at Jacksonville University for three years. He has been actively involved in a number of NCAA committees. He most recently served as chair of the Playing Rules Oversight Panel (PROP). Previously, he was a member of the Baseball Rules Committee and FCS Football Governance Committee and has served on several sub-committees of the Collegiate Commissioners Association (CCA). Iamarino is a native of Monsey, New York, and a 1977 graduate of St. Bonaventure University, where he earned magna cum laude honors majoring in journalism. An amateur baseball historian, he is a member of the Society for American Baseball Research and has written articles for SABR as well as Baseball Digest magazine. He resides in Spartanburg, South Carolina, with his wife, Mary Ann, and their son, PJ.
