The FEU Tamaraws are the one of the varsity teams of Far Eastern University in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP). The collegiate women's varsity teams are called the Lady Tamaraws while the high school varsity teams are called the Baby Tamaraws.

History[edit]

Far Eastern University was one of the founding members of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) of the Philippines in 1924. The team participated in the NCAA Philippines in 1929, then eventually withdrew in 1935 to join the Big 3 League composed of the universities which left the NCAA in 1932. Far Eastern University together with the University of the Philippines, University of Santo Tomas, and National University founded the University Athletic Association of the Philippines in 1938.

The team mascot and colors[edit]

FEU Tamaraws logo used until UAAP Season 75

The Tamaraw is the mascot of all FEU athletic teams. Hence, it is the pet name of every FEU student (Tams). Known scientifically as "Bubalus mindorensis", it is a rare animal found only in the island of Mindoro.[1]

Behind the Tamaraw logo design
Severino "Nonoy" Marcelo, a former cartoonist of The Advocate, the official student publication of Far Eastern University and a Centennial Artist, by virtue of a proclamation by the Cultural Center of the Philippines or CCP in 1998, created the Tamaraw logo, which is now used on the uniforms of the school's athletes.

Green and gold, the school colors of FEU

The university colors are green and gold. Gold represents the golden opportunity for the university to serve the youth and for its alumni to serve the country. Green is for hope, representing the founder’s aspirations of a "fair hope for the motherland".

Rivals[edit]

  • UE Red Warriors, were involved in the rivalry called the "Battle of the East" with the FEU Tamaraws. Both the Red Warriors and the Tamaraws dominated the UAAP basketball tournaments from the 1950s up to the late 1980s. The Tamaraws came out on top of this rivalry having won 20 titles to the 18 titles of the Red Warriors.
  • De La Salle Green Archers, the rivalry was sparked during the Finals of Season 54 (1991) when La Salle's win in game 1 (where La Salle was twice-to-beat) was protested by FEU after a Green Archer was admitted into the playing court after being disqualified. The UAAP Board upheld the protest and ordered the replay. La Salle did not show up, claiming to have won legitimately. This resulted in the awarding of the championship trophy to FEU by the UAAP Board (UAAP Board decided that if La Salle did not show up in Game 1, they won't in the knock out Game 2). La Salle responded with a victory parade that passed through the other seven UAAP schools. When they passed through the FEU campus, the motorcade was bombarded with debris. In Season 67 (2004), La Salle had to give up another trophy to FEU. Two Green Archers were found to have falsified documents. Thus the trophy was awarded again to FEU, who were the Finals opponent of La Salle.[3] The rivalry is unofficially known as the "Battle of the Greens", because both teams sport green in their uniforms.
