Mocs Basketball Games With ETSU Rescheduled


( CHATTANOOGA—The Chattanooga Mocs game tonight was postponed earlier this week. It was rescheduled for February in a flurry of change released by the Southern Conference office Wednesday afternoon.

The announcement turned the rivalry upside down in a manner of speaking. Tonight’s road game in Johnson City is now a Saturday afternoon affair in Johnson City on Feb. 6. That was the home date in the rivalry but was shifted due to the changing schedule putting the Bucs on the road for a large number of games.

The home meeting comes on Monday, Feb. 15, creating a 3-game home stand after three in a row outside the city limits. That sees a stretch of The Citadel (Feb. 13), ETSU and Western Carolina (Feb. 17) for a three-game-five-day run.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
