The Colorado Buffaloes are the athletic teams that represent the University of Colorado. The university sponsors 17 varsity sports teams. Both the men’s and women’s teams are called the Buffaloes (Buffs for short) or, rarely, the Golden Buffaloes. “Lady Buffs” referred to the women’s teams beginning in the 1970s, but was officially dropped in 1993. The nickname was selected by the campus newspaper in a contest with a $5 prize in 1934 won by Andrew Dickson of Boulder. The university participates as a member of the Pac-12 Conference at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) level. Rick George was announced as the sixth athletic director in program history on July 17, 2013, following the resignation of Mike Bohn, and after an interim appointment by former Women’s Basketball Head Coach and current senior associate athletic director and senior women’s administrator Ceal Barry. Colorado has won 28 national championships in its history, with 20 in skiing, including 2015. It was ranked #14 of “America’s Best Sports College” in a 2002 analysis performed by Sports Illustrated. The University does not have men’s baseball, tennis, soccer, lacrosse, or volleyball programs.
