no, there's no contract. it's a year by year thing
and I mentioned in the game thread that I wouldn't expect it to happen next year.
we talked about playing in chicago, both for football and basketball, in our fan council meeting. they asked what we thought the reaction would be if we didn't play the UC game and I said I thought 99.99% of fans would be ok with that. We can pick it up again at some point if/when we're winning but for the time being it does us no good. everyone else seemed to agree with me.
they didn't flat out tell us whether or not they would do it again next year but my feeling based on that conversation is that it won't happen.
Why do you hate me, Sammich?
MAJOR UPDATE: "Maybe you're not such a bad egg, Lisle-y"

- Is there a long-term contract to play there? Or would it be hard to get back into the UC if we quit? - IlliniOllie December 7, 2018, 8:31:16

- Well Coach, perhaps not having your team be so shitty would help?* - SurfTheBoneyard December 7, 2018, 7:52:53
