Southern Illinois Salukis Sports Network:
The Southern Illinois Salukis are the varsity athletic teams representing Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The nickname comes from the Saluki, the Royal Dog of Egypt, and the Persian greyhound, which ties into the fact that southern Illinois has had the nickname “Little Egypt” for just under 200 years. The Southern Illinois Salukis compete in NCAA Division I as a member of Conference USA. Southern Illinois University is currently fielding 13 men’s teams and 11 women’s varsity athletic programs.
Southern Illinois has won national championships in wrestling, with the Division I championship coming in 2003. Southern Illinois’ mascot is known as “Carbondale Sam” or simply “Sam.” The official colors of Southern Illinois are navy blue and old gold, which was chosen over orange by student vote back on February 12th, 1895.
