In the grand scheme of things, this is not as bad as other recent ideas, but still members of an Illinois fraternity are in trouble because over a Gophers football-related sign they made over the weekend.
Here’s a tweet with a picture of the sign:

And here’s the report from the News-Gazette out of Champaign:
Members of a fraternity are expected to meet soon with University of Illinois officials following its posting of a sign that depicted a knife-wielding American Indian posed over a gopher.
The giant paddleboard placed on the Delta Chi lawn during Saturday’s homecoming game against the Minnesota Gophers featured a Chief Illiniwek-like character in a headdress leaning over a gopher. Painted on the sign were the words, “Gut the Gophers.”
