Illinois is looking for a new logo, with Chief Illiniwek being a bit problematic. Some of the 46 options the student body has to choose from are…well…interesting. It seems the only entrance requirement was submission. Our vote would be for “Corn Guy” who has both friendly and fighting versions, in different colors (not to mention washboard abs and a mohawk). Other choices include the Kraken and another corn-themed fellow “Colonel Kernel.”
Whatever the choice, it won’t be the Big Ten’s creepiest mascot.
