UTC's Coach Huesman Hopes For Campus Parking Spot

Chattanooga QB Club Notes

Tuesday, August 27, 2013 - by B.B. Branton

UTC football coach Russ Huesman is an understanding kind of guy and not too demanding. Although he does expect perfection or close to it from his players.

He doesn't need everything, but three items on his football bucket list are a win on Thursday (vs. UT-Martin at Finley Stadium), a national championship and his own parking place on campus.

Speaking at Monday's Chattanooga Quarterback Club Luncheon at Finley Stadium, Huesman said with a smile, "It is so hard to find a parking place on campus, that when I left to come here, there were five cars waiting to take my spot.

"If we win a national championship then maybe I can get my own parking place on campus. That would be nice."

 Looking at former UTC Chancellor Dr. Fred Obear, Huesman stated  "Dr. Obear can you mention this to  (current UTC Chancellor) Dr. Angle for me?"

Dr. Obear's response (which drew laughter from the audience): "I'll see what I can do."

Coach Huesman's comment (which drew more laughter): "In other words, it's not getting done."

Sport Talk co-host Gary Haskew then stated, "we can get you a spot at the radio station (Pineville Road) and then provide shuttle service back to campus."

To that coach Huesman said, "Shuttle service would be nice. I appreciate that."

First Things First: The first step towards that national championship and a personalized parking spot is a win against UT-Martin.

"UT-Martin is a good football team and they are expecting to come here and win," Huesman said.

"We need a big crowd Thursday to have the home field advantage."

When The City Was Silent

I don't know how to say this without getting my head handed back to me on a platter as is often the usual case. But at least I no longer receive the hateful (even threatening) emails and insults I became accustomed to. So I'll just bite and say it: I honestly don't see anything expressed by the NSM that hasn't been said locally on some level at one time or another, and ... (click for more)

He was asked if he would like to visit some American soldiers who had been seriously wounded and Casper, ever the gentleman, said of course. As he melted ... (click for more)
