A Salute to History
The University of Illinois Fighting Illini is not just a team name, but it is also a celebration of the rich history and culture of the Illinois Confederation. The Illiniwek were a group of tribes that inhabited the Mississippi River Valley, and their legacy lives on in the name of the university's sports teams. The term 'Illini' was first used in 1874 when the student newspaper changed its name, and it quickly became synonymous with the university and its community. The Fighting Illini represents more than just a sports program; it's a symbol of pride for the university and all those who support it.
Tulsa Has No Hurricanes To Fear
This nickname might just be the oddest of the list. Tulsa University is known as the "Golden Hurricane." However the Oklahoma based university is far, far away from a body of water that might actually produce a hurricane.
