This is the tradeoff for Zook at Illinois. Students are in an uproar and nothing can be done. The Chief has left the building. Zook gets a great recruiting class, but the Chief must go. We must all step up and fight this nonsense.
How long before PETA steps in and gets rid of the gator or the owl? Or, how long before the Florida Alligators stand up and fight the man. They may have a point as the Florida Mascot belittles the Alligator and makes him look a little like Wally Gator.
How long before the Irish American Society stands up and dumps on our beloved Leprechaun? Don't tell me there is no gold at the end of rainbow.
If the schools offered cash to these so-called organizational witches of doom, Illiniwek would still be at the games. Don't let them take away the Leprechaun. Stand up for your rights.
