    Well I think the Native American historical experience is slightly different than that of a farmer or pipefitter... In the realm of Native American mascots, Chief Illiniwek was on the more dignified end of the spectrum, but I also don't think there is much dignity to be found when you zoom out...

    It can still have significant meaning to your college career. Nobody is taking that from you. They aren't asking you to turn in your old sheet music with "❤Mrs. TriangleIL Illiniwek❤" scribbled throughout. Flagg Hall had significant meaning to my college career, but I won't be upset when it is...

    Can we take the money saved from the head coach hiring his son and throw it at this OU guy?

    Northwestern 72, Illinois 68 OT POSTGAME

    I dig the quicker pace. But if we don't get a shot up in 7 seconds, the final 8-30 seconds of our offense is pretty ugly.

    War Chant has been retired

    Trying to compare this to Spartans or Fighting Irish is ridiculous. No matter how 'authentic' or 'respectful' our rendition is doesn't change the history of the relationship. Let it go.

    Is togetherness not a style?

    Keatts wasn't ever a realistic option. The job posting specified 5 years of D-1 head coaching experience and he only has 3. He needs to work on that resume. (sarcasm)
