I am glad to read that they are sensibly going with the work product of their in house team and not spending six figures on a waste from "consultants". Or wasting more time trying to appease "Chief" supporters(?)

I thought the chief logo was great but I realize that it will never come back.

I liked the Chief Illiniwek logo as well. I'm a graphics guy and was disappointed seeing him 86'd.

From USA Today back in the day...

Chief Illiniwek, the former University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign mascot, was banned by the NCAA in 2007 for being “hostile and abusive” ...

The same thing happened down here at Illinois Valley Community College in Oglesby. The IVCC Apaches are now the IVCC Eagles.

Agreed. It just got lumped in with the buffoon halftime clown show and it's vocal rabid supporters

The logo was good, the dancing fratboy was stupid. But didn't Illinois just redesign their logos like five years ago?

Yeah in the last couple years it was a big deal here that the school heard the fans and is going back to the script Pitt logo. Uh huh. You can also get that in the present as well as classic colors! Buy two!

Don't worry, the Stark County Rebels are still a cartoonish General Lee mascot. IVCC was the apahces? That really doesn't make sense.

You are not alone with that opinion, DS. This is an old article from The Apache, IVCC's Student Newspaper...

Also, this rebranding is dull.

They will just rebrand again in 3 or 4 years.

Since this is the Land of Lincoln,they should Change the School name to:

The Illinois Guard

The mascot can be the outline of a Union Soldier holding a football.

Beats a stupid letter.

That's the funny thing about the Blackhawks. Black Hawk himself is honored all around Illinois/Iowa for losing but putting up a good fight. Giving full credit for losing with honor is like the most hockey sentiment ever, well, that or "I want to fuck my teammate's wife."

Great.

I'm sure that's an authentic Native American war chant and not some jingle a 1950s ad guy created to sell TV show toys for The Lone Ranger.

Either way - if you know the answer, I guarantee you had to research it.

WTF?! That's like the one cool thing about Illini games.

I was watching some forgettable Western from the 50s or 60s a while back and they dubbed (what I guess is called) the War Chant each time the Injuns crept up to harass the settlers.

You are just going to have to hear Beth Mowins more clearly.
