Representatives of the Southern Conference NCAA Division I FCS from the University of Tennessee use the Chattanooga Mocs emblem, the second word of which is an abbreviation for Moccasins. The emblem, a tribute to the brand’s historical past, is known as Power C due to its conciseness.

Chattanooga Mocs: Brand overview

Chattanooga, Tennessee, U.S.

The Chattanooga Mocs are sports teams that are part of the Southern Conference, participate in NCAA Division I FCS, and represent the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in intercollegiate competitions. Previously, they were called moccasins in honor of Native Americans’ footwear. But then the word was shortened to Mocs when politically incorrect depictions of Native Americans came under severe criticism.

Under the old nickname Moccasins, various elements of visual identification were used: a snake (in the 1920s), moccasins (in the 1980s), and an Indian (until 1996). Now they have been replaced by the mockingbird Scrappy, named after legendary trainer A.C. “Scrappy” Moore.

Meaning and History

Chattanooga Mocs Logo History
In 1997, the UTC Department of Athletics definitively abandoned emblems depicting Native Americans and switched to neutral symbols. In 2001, a logo was adopted that highlighted the university’s connection to the city’s railroad heritage. Artists drew a speeding train, clouds of smoke, and a mockingbird in a conductor’s cap. This is the mascot, Scrappy, a tribute to Tennessee’s state bird. As you know, mockingbirds bravely defend their nests and even attack predators. The administration believes these qualities reflect the determined character of UTC students.

The 2001 emblem indicated the full name of the educational institution and sports department. The phrase “The University of Tennessee at” was at the top, the word “Chattanooga” in the center, and the nickname “Mocs” at the very bottom. However, after the redesign, the inscriptions disappeared.

In August 2007, the Power C logo appeared. It features only one letter, “C” – all that’s left from “Chattanooga.” Meanwhile, the teams remained loyal to their color palette, which includes dark blue and a noble shade of aged gold.
