"Welcome to Historic Kinnick Scuplture Gallery"

On my old blog, I lamented the outright douchiness of the Nile Kinnick statue unveiled to much fanfare last season. Now, it seems, amends are being made. From The ICPC:

For the second year in a row, the University of Iowa plans to unveil a sculpture that delves deep into Hawkeye lore. This year's masterpiece captures Nile Kinnick scoring the winning touchdown in the legendary 7-6 victory over Notre Dame in 1939.

"There is not a larger, more comprehensive sculpture in any football stadium in the country," sculptor Larry Nowlan, of LJN Sculptures based in Windsor, Vt., said of his 20-foot-long by 10-foot-tall by four-foot-deep sculpture relief that includes 11 players.

The piece, to be set into the wall inside the main Kinnick Stadium entrance, is due to be unveiled before the Sept. 8 opener against Syracuse.

Now, if only I can get Carver Hawkeye that 100-foot solid gold statue of Guy Rucker, my plan will be complete.

It goes without saying, of course, that the "Life as a G" tattoo will be prominently displayed as well. Right?

But of course.

I don't think it's that douchey when the Krauses aren't around it.

I'm confused. Why do you guys have a statue of Bruce Weber outside of your football stadium?
