Opinion: Chief Illiniwek will take his last dance soon


"It pains me to say this, but I think the Chief’s days are numbered.There are just too many storm clouds on the horizon for Chief Illiniwek to last much longer. It looks like one of the most honored traditions in collegiate sports is about to get the ol’ heave-ho.

How?

Better ask why, first."
