Transcript: Don Haskins: "The Bear" Haskins took over the UTEP program for the 1961-62 season. His first Miner squad notched an 18-6 record. His second UTEP team posted a 19-7 mark during the 1962-63 campaign and made the first of Haskins' 14 NCAA Tournament appearances. Haskins, who was nicknamed “The Bear,” was the head coach at UTEP from 1961-99, leading the Miners to 719 wins, as well as a national title (1966), 14 NCAA Tournament appearances and seven Western Athletic Conference championships. The Miners captured the NCAA title on March 19, 1966, shocking heavily favored Kentucky, 72-65, for the championship. That year Haskins became the first coach ever to start a lineup of five black players at the major college level. The achievement was documented in the 2006 motion picture Glory Road. Don Haskins was known as a man who did not see color. In the press conference after winning the 1966 National Championship he said " "I really didn't think about starting five black guys. I just wanted to put my five best guys on the court, I just wanted to win that game." This quote shows the the type of person Don Haskins was. He was a person who did not see race and wanted to win at all costs. Haskins, who announced his retirement on Aug. 24, 1999, ranks 19th among all-time Division I men’s basketball head coaches with 719 victories.

Transcript: Week 1 Lecture Sociology Described "Sociology is the scientific study of society and human behavior" - Professor Blackstone "History of Sociology" Goudsblom & Heilbron's History of Sociology “The transition from the predisciplinary stage to the actual conception of sociology as an intellectual discipline in its own right occurred in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The shift consisted partly in conscious attempts to bridge the gap between theory and empirical inquiry, between philosophical reflection and the collection of facts about social life.” “Sociologists had little choice but to accept this division of academic labor as a social fact; [and that] this left a strong mark on the way they conceived of their own discipline.” History Law Sociology Psychology Christopher Dum Interview with Christopher Dum “There are people out there who are just dying to tell us things about their lives and I think that if we just take that opportunity to allow them to talk and to give them an audience to speak to, I think that’s one of the greatest things that we can do.” “There are people out there who are just dying to tell us things about their lives and I think that if we just take that opportunity to allow them to talk and to give them an audience to speak to, I think that’s one of the greatest things that we can do.” Looking Glass Lens Applying Sociological Concepts and Ideas to my Everyday Life The Looking Glass Lens Julie Jones “Digital media can serve as a mediated mirror and social media sites provide the space where others’ judgements are clearly posted.” Arlie Hochschild and the "Empathy Wall" The "empathy wall" is an “obstacle to deep understanding of another person, one that can make us feel indifferent or even hostile to those who hold different beliefs or whose childhood is rooted in different circumstances.” Personal Goal Post-SOC 101 I hope to recognize the circumstances in which I put forth an "empathy wall" and realize the effect that this has on my outlook of the world and my judgement of others. awareness = a more harmonious society
