    I like those helmets, though.

    Hadn't realized they got new ones ... from a quick web check, not sure if they'll still have the ILLINI design alternate (and orange-on-blue I version).

    I don't know, it's not the most clever, but really, most sports team mottos aren't that clever.

    Not totally terrible. Not very inspiring either. It wouldn't make me want to buy tickets.

    What it really does, is make me appreciate our marketing dept - they really do a phenomenal job.

    I didn't like it because I'm already annoyed of that commercial.

    Oh, yeah, I get the reasoning. Plus the initials are WIN, just like Whip Inflation Now with President Ford back in the 70s (yep, that dates me as an old fogey). I just think it sounds particularly not inspiring.

    "Hackworth! We need a motto for the 2013 Illini team. What have you got?"

    "Well, teams are trying to win games. Maybe something with winning? W.I.N.?"

    "Great idea, Hackworth! Run with that!"

    (Three months later)

    "Boss, there just aren't that many slogans I can make out of W.I.N. How about, We're Illini Now?"

    (steady glare)

    "Okay, that was just a brainstorm. Wizards of Illini Nation?"

    (steam coming out of ears)

    "All right, all right! We did have Whatever Is Needed, but we think that's pretty lame ..."

    "That's it, Hackworth! You've done it!"

    well, if you're going to give the job to Hackworth, you deserve what you get, dude's just an intern.
