BLOCK I

The Block I student section has been the “visual staple” at Memorial Stadium since 1926, and performs creative card stunts during games. One recent creative visual involves the cards creating an orange and blue foaming beer mug; the crowd hollers “chug, chug, chug!” as it empties. Block I is part of the Illini Pride, a student organization supporting 19 varsity athletic sports on campus.
