At the end of the 19th century, when SLU’s football team was founded, most college teams didn’t have mascots. They would simply be called the Blue and the Whites, because those were the school colors. The Blue and the Whites, though, were a good team. The 1904 and 1906 teams were undefeated. In 1910, SLU hired a new football coach, a law student named John Bender. Bender led SLU’s team for two winning seasons. And his narrow eyes and broad smirk of a smile reminded people of a Billiken. John Bender coached the Saint Louis University football team for two seasons, starting in 1910. Around that time, Billy O’Connor, a sportswriter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, referred to SLU’s team as the Billikens, and the name stuck.
