Details of Stanford Cardinal and the Ticket Luck value
The Stanford Cardinal is the moniker of the athletic teams at Stanford University.
Nickname and mascot history
Following its win over Cal in the first-ever Big Game in 1892, cardinal color was picked for the Stanford's athletic teams. White was adopted as a secondary color in the 1940s.
In 1930, the athletic department approved the mascot "Indians." President Richard Lyman later dropped the Indian symbol and name in 1972, after objections from Native American students and a vote by the student senate.
Cardinals was the official nickname from 1972 to 1981. Despite the plural form of the name, it was planned to refer to the color, not the bird. During the 1970s, a number of possible nicknames were suggested: Robber Barons (Leland Stanford's history), Barrons, Sequoias, Trees, Railroaders, Spikes, Huns, Steaming Manhole Covers, and Griffins. The last suggestion gained enough momentum to the university to move two griffin statues to be near the athletic facilities.
On November 17, 1981, school President Donald Kennedy declared that the athletic teams is represented by the color Cardinal in its singular form.
Stanford has no official mascot, but the Stanford Tree, a member of the Stanford Band wearing a self-designed tree costume, appears at major Stanford sports events. The Tree is based upon El Palo Alto, a redwood tree in neighboring Palo Alto that appears in the Stanford seal and athletics logo.
