Marshall Ohio Battle for the Bell

The Battle for the Bell dates back to 1905, when the Marshall Thundering Herd and the Ohio Bobcats, located merely 80 or so miles apart, met in Huntington, West Virginia.  Marshall clawed out a 6-5 victory in that meeting.  The Bell was first introduced in 1997 and while Ohio leads the overall series 30-19-6, Marshall has been the dominate team of late, winning the Bell in nine out of eleven games.  A brief hiatus ensued when Marshall left the MAC for Conference USA in 2005, but after an unexpected meeting in the 2009 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, the two teams signed a six year contract to bring the game back.  This year’s battle pits a 1-1 Marshall team against a 2-0 Ohio team with votes in the polls and its eyes on an undefeated season.

Jim Phelan

Jim Phelan is not a household name when it comes to college basketball coaches, which is a shame because he is the seventh winningest coach of all time.  Phelan spent his entire career at Mount Saint Mary’s, a small private Catholic university in Maryland, which is why he isn’t as well known as Bob Knight or Adolph Rupp or Dean Smith.  If there’s one thing Phelan was known for as much as winning, it was his signature bow tie.  His retirement in 2003 led to several coaches wearing bow ties for one game in his honor.  His signature bow tie is even painted on the court now named for him.  It was difficult finding many pictures of the coach but I was able to take this one from his later years and recreate the outfit below: (more…)
