Final Football Insiders' Lunch is Monday; Basketball Lunches begin November 29

Hungry for the scoop? The inside dish? 

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- One series of lunches is ending and another series is beginning.

Tennessee Tech football coach Watson Brown will host the final Football Insiders' Lunch on Monday (Nov. 22) in the Eagles' Nest of Eblen Center. Fans who would like to attend the lunch are asked to call (372-3949) by noon Friday to make their reservations.

Food is available by 11:30 a.m., with the program -- featuring game footage explained by Coach Brown -- beginning shortly after noon. The cost is $10 per person.

Meanwhile, basketball coaches Mike Sutton and Sytia Messer are gearing up for a weekly Basketball Lunch, also scheduled for Mondays in the Eagles' Nest. The Basketball Lunch will begin the following week (Monday, Nov. 29).

"Fans of Tennessee Tech football have really enjoyed going 'inside' the Golden Eagle football program each week with Coach Brown," said Mark Wilson, TTU Director of Athletics. "I think our basketball fans will enjoy the same type of discussions with our basketball coaches throughout the season."

Designed to be a gathering place for friends of Tech football and basketball in a comfortable, casual atmosphere, the coaches talk about their program, answer questions fans have about the teams, the games, and try to keep everyone up-to-date on the programs.

The meals will be catered by Chartwell’s, the on-campus food service for Tennessee Tech University.
