U of I Fans Want To Bring The Chief Back
(Urbana, IL) — Expect to see plenty of Chief faces at the University of Illinois this week. Some fans of the Fighting Illini are pushing to ‘Paint the Hall Chief’ for Thursday’s men’s basketball game. It’s the last home game of the year. The fight over the Chief has taken on new life this year, more than ten years after the school retired the mascot because of racial sensitivities. But other fans at the school say this week’s push will go nowhere and won’t bring the Chief back.
