My sports ignorance flag is probably going to show now, but I've always leaned more towards Syracuse is it? the "Orangemen"

Yes, Syracuse was 'the orangemen'.. :)    that was the 'old name'.. prior to women's sports becoming more prominent.

Mar 24, 2015 - With their official color of orange, the first Syracuse University football teams in the 1890s were called "The Orioles." Somehow, it flew the coop, along with Hillmen, Bill Orange's Men and, now, Orangemen. The Orange as a reference to sports teams has been consistently used since the color was officially adopted.

Now you generally hear of the 'Syracuse Orange'...  :)
