  1. MURFREESBORO – Rick Stockstill figures once the stomach stops fluttering when early August rolls around, then it might be time to move on and do something else. But the churn of the gut the MTSU football coach is feeling this week in welcoming his 10th Blue Raiders squad for preseason drills that begin Thursday is just as strong as the pangs he felt when starting down this playing and coaching path way back when. That goes back to his high school playing days at Fernandina Beach High School in Florida for his father to being a standout quarterback at Florida State. An assistant college coach
  2. MURFREESBORO MTSU athletics director Chris Massaro admits the expansive football television package this season is a double-edged sword. Always a battle to put people in the seats at Floyd Stadium, the Blue Raiders have become somewhat of their own competition, considering fans can sit at home in front of high-definition TV sets with little effort and catch the games. It's not just the constant battle of MTSU and Conference USA, which provides its members one, if not the, best television packages for mid-major conferences. From the NFL to the SEC, teams are fighting diminishing home atten

As the calendar creeps deeper into July, it provides the perfect opportunity to review our historic first season in Conference USA and to look forward to another great year of Blue Raider sports. I wanted to send you this letter to update you on the many things that are happening within our athletics department. Facility Renovation Update In keeping with our goal of providing the best home-field and home-court advantage in C-USA for our student-athletes, and thanks to your support, we enjoyed
  4. DMURFREESBORO - MT Athletics on Sunday unveiled #TRUE as its marketing theme for next season, a more consistent and distinctive advertising concept that will be used by all 17 teams and also connects to the University's ongoing "I am True Blue" brand. "We were looking for a way to show support to the 'I am True Blue' brand, yet have a look and feel that would be more distinctive for athletics," said Director of Athletics Chris Massaro. "We also wanted our advertising to reflect the hard work, determination and spirit put forward by our student-athletes. "Our advertising has been somewhat i
  5. The Blue Raiders currently have 10 signees listed in their 2014-15 class, but coach Kermit Davis said two signees are projected to not qualify academically. “A couple of those players have academic situations, but we will definitely be at 13 players (on the full roster) when September rolls around,” Davis said. “We should have 11 here for summer school in June.” Davis said he would not reveal which signees likely will not qualify academically because they still have a very small chance of making their grades. The final signing class should be ready for release later in the summer.
  6. 4. Expect big things from North Texas, MTSU The Buzz: Conference USA saw six schools land into postseason bowls, two of those – East Carolina and Tulane – will no longer be a part of the league in 2014. North Texas and Middle Tennessee State also qualified and played for the postseason after terrific seasons in 2013. North Texas returns 17 starters from a squad that won nine games – it’s best season since moving up to the FBS. Middle Tennessee State won eight games for the second straight season. Both programs were ranked first and second in Conference USA in turnover margins. Read mor
  7. North Texas When: Saturday, Oct. 12 (Time TBA). Where: Denton, Texas. TV: TBA. Radio: 100.5 FM, 102.5 FM, 89.5 FM. Series: UNT 7-5. Last meeting: MTSU 38-21 (2012). If theres a trap game on MTSUs schedule, this has the potential to be it. A week earlier, East Division power ECU comes to Murfreesboro for a highly anticipated game. And after this game, a bye week and an equally hyped home matchup with East Division contender Marshall awaits. North Texas likely will not jump off the page on anyones schedule, but the Mean Green should be solid and balanced. UNT will be coming off its first ever

  9. MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Middle Tennessee State University football player J.D. Jones is accused of choking his former girlfriend while teammates videotaped and narrated the incident, according to a campus police report. Jones, a 20-year-old defensive tackle, is also accused of choking the same victim, 19-year-old MTSU student Ronni Cantrell, until she agreed to give him money to buy marijuana, among numerous incidents that occurred between October 2012 and May 2013 and resulted in his arrest on two counts of domestic aggravated assault. Two other MTSU players — cornerback Rodney O'Neal a
  10. MURFREESBORO — Now that the pomp of MTSU’s official entrance into Conference USA has settled just a bit, it’s time to start capitalizing on the move. On the field, the Blue Raiders hope to repeat success similar to last season’s 8-4 record. Offseason workouts continue, and players are slated to report to preseason camp on Aug. 1. Off the field, MTSU needs to make a good first impression in the new league by selling tickets and filling up more of Floyd Stadium that previous seasons. “We want to measure ourselves more with East Carolina and Southern Miss, and (higher attendance) is unde
  11. MURFREESBORO President Sidney McPhees charge to his Middle Tennessee State University coaches is simple entering Conference USA: Dominate. Thats easier said than done, especially in a league redefining itself amid a shakeup that brings in eight new member schools, including MTSU, on Monday. MTSU and its fans will celebrate the long-awaited entrance into C-USA, but McPhee said work toward athletic success in the conference started long ago. I have already passed that, and Im looking ahead, McPhee said. Quite frankly, Ive already talked to (athletic director Chris Massaro) and our coaches
  12. MURFREESBORO - The University and Blue Raider athletics will celebrate the official move to Conference USA on July 1 and want to encourage all alums and fans to take part in this historic day. Approximately 52 businesses and restaurants will be wearing specially designed tee shirts with the inaugural C-USA logo on July 1 throughout Murfreesboro and football players and staff will be handing out schedule cards and posters all day, hitting The Square, The Avenue, Rutherford Boulevard, Broad Street, Memorial Boulevard, and Church Street. The official celebration headquarters will be at Sa
  13. So the story of the Stockstills will now be told simultaneously, probably for the next five years, and there lies some interesting twists and turns — especially for the fans that may judge the special circumstances of a father-son football pair and the media that covers them. Rick was at least slightly concerned about both until his son signed in February at Cincinnati, which recently granted Brent a full release from his scholarship. Father-son example Rick and Brent are both level-headed and ultra competitive, so the coach-player relationship between them will probably work itself out, bu
  14. MURFREESBORO — MTSU’s football team will face BYU in football this season for a Friday game on Sept. 27 as announced by Director of Athletics Chris Massaro. A game time and television possibilities will be released at a later date. The Blue Raiders and Cougars will be meeting for the first time in football. http://www.tennessean.com/article/D4/20130128/BLUERAIDERS01/301280040/MTSU-play-BYU-Sept-27 This is a nice road payday game for MT in my opinion.

  16. GRAPEVINE, Texas – Florida Atlantic and Middle Tennessee State are negotiating to exit the Sun Belt Conference a year early and join Conference USA in 2013, a person briefed on the talks told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the negotiations are supposed to be private. A decision about which league the schools will play in next season should be finalized by Feb. 1 so that football schedules can be completed. If the schools stay until 2014, neither will owe the Sun Belt an exit fee, the person said. Schools are supposed to pay a $1 million penalty
  17. COACH RICK STOCKSTILL: We have North Texas coming up this Saturday, and they are coming off an emotional win last week over ULL. They will come in here with a lot of confidence. We are both 2-1 in the conference along with three others, so it is a critical game. We'll have to play extremely well. They are doing a great job of running the ball, and I think they are under-rated in passing the ball. They throw it 26 to 27 times a game, and have thrown it over 200 yards in five straight games. In the past couple of years, they had Lance Dunbar, who was their "bell cow" and he got the majority o
  18. 4. How big is this game for MTSU? Very big. I think if MTSU wins this, it goes to a bowl. That would give the Blue Raiders five wins, and they still have South Alabama on the schedule. If they lose this one, it will be tough to get to bowl eligibility. Aside from beating South Alabama, they would have to get a win at WKU, at Arkansas State or at home against Troy, who has beaten MTSU six straight times. 5. How do you see this game going? My colleagues at the paper picked North Texas to win. I picked MTSU in a close one. I think it’s a toss-up game. I think both teams will run the ball wel
  19. MURFREESBORO — Think October is too early to be chasing a bowl bid? MUTS and North Texas know differently, as they will face off in Saturday’s Blackout game with potential postseason ramifications. Aside from the Sun Belt Conference race, where both teams have a 2-1 league record, the overall wins total is becoming important for each school. MUTS has four wins with five games remaining. North Texas touts three victories with five games ahead. Teams become bowl eligible at six wins, and there are no gimmes on either schedule. “This is a critical game for both teams,” MUTS coach Rick
  20. MURFREESBORO — MTSU basketball’s record-breaking season earned prime-time billing for a pair of games in the upcoming campaign. Two Blue Raider games have been picked up for national telecasts by ESPNU. MTSU’s Dec. 21 game against Vanderbilt at Bridgestone Arena will air on ESPNU. Tipoff has been moved to 8 p.m. And the same network will air the Blue Raiders’ home game versus North Texas at Murphy Center on New Year’s Eve at 7 p.m. “The national exposure your university and program get when playing on the ESPN networks is fantastic,” MTSU coach Kermit Davis said. “Last year, we ended
