The 1905 Syracuse Orangemen football team represented Syracuse University during the 1905 college football season. The head coach was Charles P. Hutchins, coaching his second season with the Orangemen. Despite the name, Syracuse Orangemen wore blue and gold uniforms. This has caused confusion among new fans, and many fans believe a change in uniform color is in order. However, the blue and gold uniform was worn before the name. Originally, the Syracuse Orangemen were called The Syracuse Blueboys. During one of their games, students from the university poured orange paint onto the field during halftime. The students were reprimanded, but the paint stayed on the field. The prank became well-known by university students, and they nicknamed their team as the Syracuse Orangeboys. Unable to shake the nickname from their records, The Syracuse Blueboys changed their name to Syracuse Orangemen. [1]
