Good day, everyone. We hope that you are hanging in there as best you can, all things considered given the pandemic surrounding everyone. We hope that our Icons of C-U tournament will help provide some relief, as we are celebrating the people, places, and things that are iconic in Champaign-Urbana.

Check out how things have gone thus far:

If you're late to the game, here's the deal: This is supposed to be quirky and fun, meant to amuse and frustrate. This is supposed to be weird; that makes it fun. Please do not get upset if something you think is iconic is not in the field. So, go ahead and vote for which of the matchups below you believe to be the more iconic thing in C-U.

As we move forward, you still get to decide which items make it to the next round. The Sweet 16 will be published on Thursday following this round of voting. Follow us on FacebookTwitter, and. Instagram to keep up with the action.

Thanks for participating!
