I dont think so because...

1. There isn't any living Illini left
2. They are honoring indians, not disrespecting them
3. GO ILLINI!!

Im sitting right across form the Alma Mater right now at Moonstruck. As a U of I student, I could give a rats ass about the chief. Get rid of him, keep him. Just make a decision and move on.

You know if I could edit this post to banning you instead, I would.

I thought I once saw a tv report where it shows Illinois going to great lengths to represent the Chief correctly. Maybe I am wrong, but doesn't the Chief actually go to Indian Festivals and teach about Native American culture?

the elimination of all the native american school names is PC bullshit IMO. I fail to see how they are portraiying the culture in a bad light .

Chief Illiniwek should not be banned. However, I do agree with banning the dance that takes place at halftime of games. It seems a little campy and cartoony to me. But the mascot itself? No way.

As far as I know, the dance is authentic.

Hell, I'm glad anyone is still representing Native Americans at ALL.If you go to some (rather moronic) parts of the country, there's actually people who think there's none left!

I'm a student at Southern Illinois and let me tell you I'm glad they banned that jerk.

Not because I dont like him, but because they are afraid to play us in basketball and football...cause they know we would beat them in horrific fashion in both sports.
