UI Football Camp 2017: Day 12

University of Illinois Football Practice on Monday August 14, 2017 at the Campus Rec Fields in Urbana.

UI makes logo change official

The University of Illinois announced today that it will return to a single logo — the orange block "I" still used by Illinois athletics — as it moves to unify its branding.

A welcome surprise

URBANA — Trenard Davis grew up playing multiple positions. He was a wide receiver and cornerback at American Heritage School in Delray Beach, Fla. Illinois recruited him as a three-star "athlete."

So it wasn't exactly a stretch when he practiced at both safety and wide receiver last fall for Illinois.

UI to tweak logo design, colors to unify brand

CHAMPAIGN — Orange and blue have defined the University of Illinois' identity for more than a century, since students chose the official school colors in 1894.

The exact shades have varied over the years — from a deep navy to a medium blue, from orange-yellow to the reddish-orange on the new Illini uniforms adopted three years ago.

Illini working fast

URBANA — Del'Shawn Phillips' college football clock is ticking. He wants to get on the field. And fast.

The linebacker from Garden City (Kan.) Community College worked with the first unit Saturday. He moved from middle linebacker to the outside.

"He's playing good," Illinois coach Lovie Smith said. "The thing about Del'Shawn is getting him in the right spot."

Illini Legends, Lists & Lore: Most celebrated Illini offensive lines

Which Illinois football team of the past had the best single collection of centers, tackles and guards? It's all very subjective, of course, because offensive linemen don't have individual statistics, but logic says the Illini's most successful teams probably also had the best offensive lines.
