The word “Web-foot” made its reappearance in print in January 1922 thanks to Oregon Daily Emerald reporter Ep Hoyt, who bestowed the name upon the UO football team during its postseason tour of Hawaii. Later that year, an Emerald editorial argued for the necessity of adopting a team name for UO sports teams and solicited names from readers. Professor W.G. Thatcher argued in favor of Pioneers, while other suggestions included Condors, Eagles, Hawks, Vultures, Bulls, Wild Cats, and Fighting Drakes. Another professor, Jim Gilbert, favored Skinners in tribute to the founder of Eugene.
