    LOL.

    Not much of a UTC fan. I keep up with mocs basketball some, but not football.
    Vols fan, maybe a little . How can you not be, Tennessee has some avid fans.

    Congrats on the win

    UT Chattanooga Mocs. Stands for Moccasin...there is a real prominent part of the Tennessee river around here that curves called Moccasin Bend. The mascot used to be an indian but a group of native americas protested the mascot, so it was changed to that bird thing!

    Here look at this!

    thank you, so much!

    my husband and i were thoroughly confused. we knew you all were called the mocs, but we saw the train in your logo and the "bird-thing" on the sidelines.

    thanks, again!

    No prob.

    The mascot was changed last year--maybe the year before.
