DIBS - DePaul Mascot

Home of Everyone's Favorite Demon In a Blue Suit

DIBS is the most iconic spirit team member of DePaul, known for cheering the Blue Demons to victory for decades. He never misses a Men’s or Women’s Basketball home game and attends several soccer and softball games. As DePaul Athletics’ biggest fan, he can get a little too excited at games, but he's never too busy to mingle with fans and he's certainly not camera shy.

DIBS PointingThe Origin of the Blue Demons
In 1900 the monogram “D” was selected for the uniforms of the first athletic team to represent DePaul University. As a result the nickname "D-men" originated which eventually evolved into "Demons." The “Blue” signifies loyalty and was chosen in 1901 by a vote of the student body to combine with “Demons.” And that’s how we became the DePaul Blue Demons.

What Does "DIBS" Mean?
The name DIBS may sound odd but there is a reason; DIBS stands for Demon In a Blue Suit. The Blue Demon mascot originally came to DePaul under the name Billy. After the logo was updated, he figured it was time for an update of his own.
