Illinois advertisement for Penn State game garners negative publicity

"It was a very quick turnaround," Brown said of the advertisement's conception. "There was a number of us who certainly saw it, and I don't think anyone's apologizing for the ad. A week ago, that picture was lauded for a possible sports photo of the year. ... The fact that some people interpreted it as anything other than that is very unfortunate."

Promotional use of Illini photo sparks controversy

Brown said Illinois has yet to receive criticism from fans regarding the advertisement.

"I think the people who saw that certainly saw a strong photo that was very popular after last week's game," Brown affirmed. "That's all there is to it."
