I'm watching the Florida/Missouri game, and Vitale just demanded a statue for him. Literally, out of the blue. Unprompted, he said that he walked by the statues on the way into the game (at which point I groaned audibly, because I knew what was coming next), and sure enough, he insisted that Boeheim should have one now. I get that he loves Boeheim, and even that he thinks he should have a statue. What I don't get is why he's so obsessed with it. Why is this such a personal battle for him?
