Bob Odenkirk

Did You Know?

If you watch AMC's "Better Call Saul" or "Breaking Bad," you're watching SIU alumnus Bob Odenkirk portray Saul Goodman.

Point of Pride

SIU’s athletic teams were once called the “Maroons” but when the students voted on a new name and mascot in 1951, they chose Salukis, perhaps in part because this area of Illinois is also known as “Little Egypt” and the Saluki is a fast, Egyptian-bred dog, perhaps the oldest of all domesticated dogs. The first mascot was “King Tut” and local superstition holds that it’s good luck to touch the “King Tut” pyramid outside of Saluki Stadium.
