The Indiana Hoosiers are the intercollegiate sports teams and players of Indiana University Bloomington named after the colloquial term for people from the state of Indiana. The school does not have a mascot, but student-athletes are known as “Hoosiers", a nickname for natives or residents of Indiana. Over the years, IU has tried several different mascots, none of which have stuck. From the editors of the Indiana Daily Student proposing a goat in 1923, to the official mascot Mr. Hoosier Pride in 1979, most of the failed mascots and proposals have faded from peoples' memories over the years. Except for one. From 1965 to 1969, the bison was the official mascot of IU Athletics and is the longest-running mascot in school history. The bison mascot originates from the Seal of the State of Indiana, featuring a bucking bison, inspiring its inclusion as the mascot for the state's flagship university. It represents an era that included a trip to the 1968 Rose Bowl. Ever since IU ditched the bison 51 years ago, there have been calls to bring it back. Bison are native to Indiana, and in 2016, started roaming free in the state for the first time in almost 200 years.
