    We have the lethargic bronze buffalo outside the stadium, but after touring multiple P5 stadiums, we truly lack statues of former great players and or coaches. Definitely need a Coach Mac, and personally would love to see one of Kordell, Rashaan, Wizzer, or even Sal.

    Moments that could be forever emblazoned outside Folsom could be.

    As long as they go with the Chinese company that designed Texas' statues.

    Could probably get a deal on a "gently used" JoPa statue. Just buff off [pun intended] the slime and facial features, restore with face of Wizzer or Mac, and Flounder goes away feeling like a hero.

    If we're going to be doing this, can we have a statue and designate an area the "Frosty Cox Zone" to honor our legendary coach where we all wait in line outside the Keg in the winter?

    There is a Fred Folsom bust by Gate 4 or 5. I do like Flounder's idea of the '90 team remembering Sal.

    And remember, just because the buffalo looks lethargic and possibly tame, it is wild and it will ****ing gore you.

    First of all this needs to happen.
    Second of all if some dude can make a bronze statue of women, we can get one of the 89 team pointing to sal.

    We should put up a tom cruise statue just so there won't be an argument as to whether he actually studied at CU or not.

    I think we have a mount Rushmore of Buffs football thread out there. I'd go Whizzer, McCartney, Hagan, Salaam.

    Kind of voting for Flounders statue. That would look sweet next to our new IPF.

    Seriously though, how are we paying for these statues?

    There are like 2, maybe 3 people associated with the program that truly deserves a statue. Mac Classic (thanks, @FlaBuff for that... allsome), Salaam, and Sal. There are some other all time greats that could be argued, of course, but a statue is a ****ing statue. Reserved for the GOATs only.

    I like the idea of honoring the All-American/CU HOF type guys with a separate sort of shrine in the public's view outside Folsom.

    is it a UBL to point out that the asses are all shiny due to rubbing?
