History

The third Cornell bear, Touchdown III
Poster illustration of a Cornell baseball player, 1908.
.Cornell's teams did not have an official name until after 1905, when a recent graduate, Romeyn Berry '04 wrote lyrics for a new football song.^ The Cornell University Solar Decathlon (CUSD) team consists of nearly 200 undergraduate and graduate students representing a wide variety of colleges and departments at Cornell.
  • CEN : Events by Region > Metro New York 19 January 2010 9:54 UTC cen.cornell.edu [Source type: General]

The lyrics included the words "the big, red team," and the nickname stuck.[3]
Cornell does not have an official mascot, however the bear has long been a symbol of Cornell Athletics. In 1915, a live bear named Touchdown first appeared at football games to represent Cornell. The current version, which appears at many of Cornell's sporting events, is a brown bear costume (the live bear was replaced in 1939) that is worn by an undergraduate student; it is referred to as the "Big Red Bear" or by its nickname, "Touchdown."
Cornell's colors, carnelian red and white, date back to the university's Inauguration Day on October 7, 1868.[4]
Many of Cornell's athletic directors have made substantial contributions to collegiate athletics in general, including Romeyn Berry, James Lynah, and Robert Kane.

Fight Songs

A number of fight songs are associated with Cornell sports teams, such as "The Big Red Team", "Fight for Cornell", and "New Cornell Fight Song",[5] but the one with the longest use and tradition is "Give My Regards to Davy", a song written by three Cornellians in 1904. The song is sung to the tune of George M. Cohan's "Give My Regards to Broadway".

Rivalries

Cornell - Penn game in 1919
The men's ice hockey team has a historic rivalry with Boston University, but, since BU left what became the ECAC Hockey conference to join Hockey East, this rivalry has been overshadowed by the more contemporary one with Harvard University, which was highlighted in the 1970 novel Love Story and its film adaptation. The men's ice hockey team also has rivalries with Clarkson and Colgate.
.In football, Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania have a rivalry that has witnessed over 110 games played between the schools since their first meeting in 1893, rating as the 5th most-played rivalry in college football.^ She has been an alumni interviewer for Cornell University for the past 7 years providing her great exposure to high school students entering colleges.
