Statues on Campus

 


In recent news, the big thing going on with both college and professional teams is who should have a statue of themselves put on the grounds of the stadium in which they used to play. Kareem Abdul Jabbar thinks that he should have a statue of himself outside of the Staples Center in LA ( Which I totally agree with). Shaq is getting a statue of himself put outside of the Pete Maravich Events Center on the campus of LSU. So my question is, who should the next statue be of on the Syracuse Campus. In my opinion, the candidates are (by sport and not in any particular order):

 

Football:

Jim Brown- No explanation is needed for this one.

Donovan McNabb- Great QB is SU history and is on the board of trustees ( which might be actually kind of weird and might actually disqualify him from actually being able to put a statue of himself on campus)

Don McPherson- QB that led SU to the undefeated season in the late 1980s

 

Basketball:

Carmelo Anthony- Lead the Orangemen (yep I said it) to their first National Championship in the common era of the NCAA Tournament

Jim Boeheim- I just think it is a matter of time before there is a statue of him outside the Carrier Dome

Gerry McNamara- Very instrumental in the National Championship win with Carmelo Anthony, big fan favorite and current assistant coach on the basketball team (Which might also disqualify him right now from getting a statue of himself on campus)

John Wallace- Fan favorite and lead the Orangemen (Uh Oh, I'm going to get in trouble for this) to several deep NCAA tournament runs

 

Lacrosse: 

Mikey Powell- Great Lacrosse player in school history, won National Championships for the school.

Jim Brown- They could do a two figured statue that shows him playing lacrosse and football on campus

 

Also, I think that they should move the statue of Ernie Davis to the front of the Carrier Dome (down near the parking lots below the Dome and diagonal to Sadler Hall) and add any other statues that they decide to make and put them over there and name it like legends row ( I know that sounds really lame/cheesy but I cant think of a better name for it right now).

 

 

So, lemme know what you think, who should be the next Syracuse great to get a statue outside of the Carrier Dome and should they move the Ernie Davis statue so that if they do add other statues they can be together ( because in its current location, there is no room for others to be around it.
