As most of you know, the ruling by the NCAA and University of Illinois Athletic Department to ban the chief and related imagery was a very controversial topic. Most of us wanted the chief to stay. He was not a mascot, he represented the university with the highest honor and respect. Now with the recent ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States declaring trademarks that are offensive to some, free speech, we would like to have him back (SEE CASE OF MATAL VS TAM). Please help us bring him back and restore the glory that he once displayed!
