The times they are still a changing for University of Illinois sports. War Chant music is now off limits at all sporting events. The decision was made at the end of last football season but it wasn't revealed until yesterday. Athletic department officials asked members of the Illini Pride student group to stop playing the war chant song on a drum Thursday at a soccer game. School officials say the move is part of an effort to be more inclusive and students are responding to it less in the post Chief Illiniwek era.
