PLEASE - NO MASCOT!  THE CHIEF WAS NEVER A MASCOT, HIS EXISTENCE WAS LEVELS ABOVE A MASCOT

 :chiefillini:



A mascot would trivialize the chief even more. It would be capitulating to the Politically Correct crowd - people who would shame us for honoring the hearty, resilient people who originally inhabited our prairie plains.

No stupid puppet mascot that tarnish our decades old tradition ... it simply puts an exclamation mark on this sad mess

From my point of view I am glad to not be the university that has a dude dressed up as a Native American dance at halftime. That's the extent of my caring about the matter. I don't care what we are called either.

University of Illinois leader expects action on mascot report amid Chief Illiniwek turmoil

Education professor Nick Burbules sponsored the resolution and said he believes it's past time for a new mascot. But he said the mascot selection risks causing more division.

Vision without action is a daydream.  Action without vision is a nightmare.

I agree with Phil. Don't care about mascots, just the teams and the university
Still crazy

we already had the best mascot possible and that was the chief. anything else would just be a disappointment to the school.
