William & Mary Tribe football, 1930–39

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The William & Mary Indians football[a] teams represented The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, United States. Now known as the William & Mary Tribe, the program was established in 1893. Their long-time football rival is the University of Richmond. Their annual meeting is dubbed the I-64 Bowl, so named for the highway connecting the two nearby schools.

The 1935 season marked the opening of the Cary Field. The construction of William & Mary's first-ever football field cost $138,395 (relative CPI value in 2007 = $2,089,956). The following season, in 1936, the Indians joined the NCAA's Southern Conference to begin their program's (and school's) official athletics conference affiliation.

  • Points scored: 1,313
  • Points against: 899
  • +/- point differential: +414

Notes[edit]

  • 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]
