Wow. It Really Happened.

Even though I was the captain of the University dance team (which is officially a section of the marching band), I never took a side of the whole "Chief Illiniwek/Anti-Chief" issue. I was pressured to do so, but never did - I'm still conflicted on the entire thing. I'm not a big fan of the commercialization the symbol, but I never saw anything (perhaps other than the halftime dance, which in my opinion, was just stupid) as being totally offensive.

Looks like all the efforts of so many students over the years have not been enough.

I guess all those sweatshirts and t-shirts are collector's items, now. Strange.
