Those are not our colors and I do not like the social/political message associated with sports. That is my opinion. The great thing about America is that we can all have our own opinion and it counts just as much as the next person.
This take is the exact reason why it's necessary. Can't run from it forever.

Agreed. These problems only persist because they've been so easily ignored. I also like our players gaining experience addressing these issues head on using the platform available to them.

Hopefully their message gets amplified by the fact that Illinois is an !!! kicking football team that wins tonight's game. I think our guys have to speed, size, strength and experience to compete and prevail. This is the payoff year for all their hard work, so let's enjoy it. Go illini!

Agree that we can voice opinions and clearly this is the team's opinion. Since they are putting in a significant amount of more work and effort to put the uniform on than any of us fans, my opinion is we allow them to voice their's.
