Mocs Athletics Host 'Swag Swap' Thursday

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

The Chattanooga Mocs Athletics Department is hosting a ‘Swag Swap’ on the UTC campus on Thursday, Oct. 24.  Students, faculty, staff and fans are encouraged to trade in gear from other schools for a variety of Mocs athletics swag.

Look for the UTC Spirit Squad, along with the Goodwill truck taking away the old gear, beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the heart of campus at Heritage Plaza.  Bring gear from any college or University, including Tennessee, Alabama or Georgia, and trade it in for the ‘Power C.’  There are even a few hats available for the first takers.

The Mocs will be trading gear until 1:00 p.m.  If all of the Chattanooga swag is gone before 1:00 p.m., the UTC Bookstore will offer 25% off coupons for anyone still wanting to upgrade to the Blue & Gold.

With the students coming off of Fall Break on Monday and Tuesday, the ‘Swag Swap’ is a great way to get the campus and community revved up for a big home football game this weekend.  UTC hosts The Citadel on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 2:00 p.m. at Finley Stadium. 

Ticket are on sale now on GoMocs.com or by calling the UTC Ticket Office at (423) 266-MOCS.  Admission is always FREE for UTC students, as is parking while space is available

Refuting Racism

In an opinion piece, 5/18/18, Rev. Josh Woodrow referred to me and my fellow School Board member, Joe Smith, as racists and white supremacists because we spoke out against busing. I have never met or spoken with Rev. Woodrow so he knows nothing about me. The reverend obviously knows nothing about Joe Smith either. Seems one of the reverend’s hobbies is “brewing beer”. Maybe, ... (click for more)
