Meet bt365体育娱乐蓝IV: Our 65-pound, apple-loving, AKC注册, 100-percent-loyal English bulldog mascot. Patrolling the sidelines of Hinkle Fieldhouse since January 2020 (and given free leash, er, 控制, just about everywhere else on campus), you’re bound to run into Blue on his rounds real soon.
Bulldogs at bt365体育娱乐
(In people years)
We’ve been known as the Bulldogs long before bt365体育娱乐蓝IV—or III, II, or I, for that matter. We’ve had the name since 1919, when a bulldog named Shimmy wandered into the bt365体育娱乐 Collegian’s office during a particularly fruitless football season. A page-one cartoon featuring Shimmy appeared in the next issue, and a mascot was born.
Blue Through the Years
Three Good Boys + One Good Girl
自2000年以来, three bulldogs besides bt365体育娱乐蓝IV have worn the collar of bt365体育娱乐’s official mascot—bt365体育娱乐 I, II, 和第三. All three came from breeders Frank and Jeanne King, owners of King Kong Kennel in Lizton, Ind. (Dr. Kurt Phillips ’92 has been the vet for all four of our bulldogs.)
