    Just what our sports teams need - a cute cuddly mascot. No thanks.

    D1 Hockey at Illinois

    Illinois Fencing was a national power. National champs 1956 & 1958. Discontinued in 1993. Took fencing for Phys Ed when I was a freshman.

    We should forget the SEZ until we start getting better attendance. The performance center will hopefully help us get better recruits, more W's, and more people in MS.

    I know I know. But I've been thru this so many times and it never works out long term. People say we just need that special coach. We've already had that special coach - unfortunately is was in the 1920's.

    What's really hard is watching Indiana get better, Purdue get better, now Rutgers get better, and we wallow around at the bottom. I know it's early in the process, but it gets really old. College football can be so much fun......

    Memorial Stadium Renovation

    Isn't there some concern about adding columns since that would dilute the significance of the original column dedications? I thought that was a factor in the 2007 renovation.

    Mascot for University of Illinois?

    That would offend the students south of Green.

    Mascot for University of Illinois?

    Let's face it - every current Illini tradition, no matter how old or revered, is at risk because "some may think" it's connected to the Chief.
