Notes[edit | edit source]

  • a Between 1896 and 1909 their nickname was "Orange and White," deriving that name from the school's former colors (William & Mary now uses green and gold).[1] Since white uniforms dirtied too quickly, they became known as the "Orange and Black" from 1910 through 1916.[1] Between 1917 and 1977 they were known as the Indians, and throughout this period a man dressing up as a Native American would ride around on a pony along the sidelines during games.[1] This practice was discontinued when the outcry of stereotyping Native Americans as well as the use of a live animal became controversial.[1] Since the 1978 season William & Mary has adopted the nickname "Tribe."[1]
