Plaza 44, featuring statues of Syracuse Orange football greats Ernie Davis, Floyd Little and Jim Brown, was supposed to be officially unveiled last week before home opener against Rhode Island. With little notice, the ceremony was pushed back to a later date without explanation.

Now we know that the statues will be officially unveiled on November 14, the morning of the home game with the Clemson Tigers. Floyd Little made the announcement on TK99 on Wednesday and also alluded to an official reason for the delay.

"Jim Brown's facial expression they had was not very appealing or attractive, so I had to soften that up a little bit," Little quipped.

"Mine is good. I look fabulous."

A Syracuse Football statue that didn't come out right the first time around? I AM SHOCKED!

I also like the insinuation that Floyd himself is sculpting the statues. Is there anything the man can't do?

At least SU noticed a problem beforehand this time and took the steps to fix it. We're moving in the right direction after all...
