Illinois State University

Illinois State University

When is the Illinois media going to notice that the Illinois State University Football is in the National Championship game Saturday in Frisco, Texas against North Dakota? Sure, it’s “only” Division I-like the other state schools.  They don’t get the inflated state funding that the teacher assistant taught U of I receives and most of our student athletes are academic achievers and actually graduate.  You would think that a school that has more Chicago area alumni that the Choking Illini would get some media recognition and would get better than ESPN 2 covering the game?

Sainsbury Christmas Ad

I included a video that explains the story behind the ad.
