I looked at a few of the videos localized through the UIUC link—but watching drunk undergrads streak through the quad just doesn't do it for me.
And I guess I can't say I was too surprised to see that there are several detailed and revealing videos of the UIUC human mascot, the Chief, in action on YouTube.
At a recent all-campus faculty meeting, University of Illinois president Joseph White was asked when (if ever) something is going to be done about the Chief. White stated very clearly that decisions about Chief Illiniwek are in the hands of the trustees, all of whom are accessible via email from this page.
I wonder if I speak for anyone else who would rather not see the Chief continue to represent the U of Illinois when I say that it is not so much the support for the Chief among the trustees that I find disturbing so much as it is much wider Chief-enthusiasm in the community. If I can find the time, I'd like to make a short video documenting this sentiment for our localized hub on YouTube.
