The Chief Lives (at least for one more year)

The University of Illinois plans to keep the Chief around for at least one more year according to the Associated Press. Mark Tupper has also posted on his blog the highlights from his recent discussion with Ron Guenther, Illinois' Athletic Director.

The current plan is for the Chief to perform at football games this fall and possibly volleyball and basketball games as well. Because of the uncertainty of the Chief's fate, this is a great opportunity to make sure you get to see him again in an official capacity. We sincerely hope this won't be the last time.

P.S. The NBA Draft is tomorrow. Check out today's article in USA Today on Dee. To Dee and Augie, we wish you each good luck--We are rooting for you both to be picked in the first round!!!
