Celebrate “Vandals” Nickname Turning 100: This year’s theme, “The Vandal Century” marks 100 years since the official nickname of “Vandals” was widely adopted for Idaho athletics teams. In 1917, Argonaut reporter Jazz McCarty coined the moniker “Vandals” for our basketball team’s prowess on the court. The pre-game write-up notes “the opening game with Whitman will mark a new epoch in Idaho basketball history, for the present gang of ‘Vandals’ have the best material that has ever carried the “I” into action.” Later in 1921, a push to make the nickname permanent paid off. U of I is the only higher education institution with the Vandals handle and mascot, and our nickname exemplifies the spirit of the university in more than just athletics. We are fiercely competitive, brave and bold. Celebrate the legacy and get involved with Homecoming and Vandal Fest events that continue until Saturday, Oct. 9.
