TCR’s Twitter account, @Champaign_Room, (and Facebook page!) sends out a tweet with #IlliniPulse asking for your opinion on something every Monday night, and we post out the best answers in this article every Tuesday!
This week we asked for your best stories about the famous I-L-L, I-N-I call and response, and you guys answered! Here are some of the best stories!
The day Lovie was hired I was in the Orlando airport wearing an Illini 1/4zip. At security, a guy 3 gates away yells "ILL! WE GOT LOVIE!"— Brad Repplinger (@TCRBrad) September 11, 2017
New Orleans, Mardi Gras, 2005. @intelwarrior & I started an I-L-L chant, you could hear I-N-I echoing throughout Bourbon St. It was awesome.— Aaron Smith (@IlliniSmitty) September 11, 2017

I met @MeyersLeonard11 in airport in LA last year, he I-L-L'ed as a goodbye. I didn't want to blow up his spot talking to him. He was great— Dave (@nyillini311) September 11, 2017
Come back next week for the next #IlliniPulse question! Until then, keep I-L-L, I-N-I-ing.
