The Colgate Raiders is an NCAA Division 1 program out of Colgate University located in Hamilton, New York. It is a private liberal arts college named after the Colgate family who contributed the massive endowment to the school in the 19th century. The Colgate Raiders take at least 25% of the school’s students and place them in varsity sport. The football team competes in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) and is a member of the Patriot League. The nickname for the school used to be the “Red Raiders” picturing a Native American mascot. Prior to the Native American mascot, the team was named the “Red Raiders” due to their rivalry with the Cornell University Big Red. Their ability to overcome the prominent team gave them the nickname as well as the moniker “undefeated, untied, unscored upon, and uninvited”. Due to social issues and politically correctness, the team changed their name from the “Red Raiders” to “Raiders” in the 70’s. To totally disassociate from the old nickname and PC issues, they also changed the logo from a Native American to a hand holding a torch. The Raiders began competing in the FCS in 1982 and have been in the playoffs a collective of eight years to this date. The years they made it to the playoffs include 1982, 1983, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2003, 2005, and 2008.
