Since taking the job a year and a half ago University of Tennessee at Chattanooga athletic director David Blackburn's schedule has been so hectic that the walls of his office still remain completely bare. It's the nature of the job as he spends his days looking for ways to continue improving every detail of the school's athletic program.

As he took a break from the beehive of activity of planning the Mocs trip to Knoxville to face Tennessee, Blackburn acknowledged the benefits that will carry on past Saturday's game.

UTC will be paid $450,000 for the game, a check that will go toward helping to fund the athletic department's $15 million annual budget for men's and women's sports.
