Media Information Why Bulldogs? Prior to 1919, Butler’s athletic teams were known as the “Christians.” But numerous losses in the 1919 football season caused Butler followers to grow weary of that nickname. During the week leading up to Butler’s football game with the heated rival Franklin “Baptists,” Butler Collegian editor Alex Cavins and his staff, which included cartoonist George Kickson, decided something “hot” needed to be conceived for the school’s weekly pep session. About that time, the mascot of a Butler fraternity - a bulldog named Shimmy (you couldn’t shake him) - wandered into the Collegian office. The idea was born! The next day the school paper came out with a big page one cartoon showing Shimmy the Bulldog, labled Butler, taking a bite out of the pants seat of a figure labled “John the Baptist.” The caption was: “Bring on that Platter, Salome!” (Butler lost the game to Franklin, 14-0, but the name “Bulldogs” took hold.)
