What Is A Torero?

The University of San Diego, which sponsors sixteen NCAA Division I intercollegiate teams, competes under the athletic nickname ofToreros. In 1961 , the Most Reverend Bishop Buddy, the fo unding father of USO, announced that the school 's nickname wou ld change from Pioneers to Toreros. "The name Toreros is keeping with the friendly relationship which exists between San Di ego and Mexico," Hi s Excellency said at the time. Torero comes from the span ish term taro, the bull, and from the word torear, to fight bulls. All of the contestants in the ring are call ed toreros. Torero is a general term describing a bullfighter and signifies courage, honor and fide lity. USO student-athletes, like the Torero, represent a willing– ness to stand alone in the ring and accept the challenge. The 2000-200 I schoo l year marked the 40th anniversary with Toreros as the official nickname for USO athletic teams.
