Honoring in Bronze

While doing some research on the bazaar JoePa statue issues in State College I stumbled across this slide show of college football player and coach pictures.  Check them out Here.

Couple of interesting points. 
** The statue they used for Ara Parseghian is the one down at the University of Miami (OH).

** The location for the three they used of Notre Dame coaches is: South Bend IN.  I suspect the University of Notre Dame would differ and say: Notre Dame IN.
** The statue of Tom Osborne doesn’t do him any favors depicting him wearing a headset.  He looks like Mickey Mouse.

If JoePa were still alive and coaching, he and Nick Saban would be the only two active coaches honored in bronze.  There is something to be said in honoring a person after his days at your institution are over.  Let’s hope it does not go to Nick’s head like it did Joe’s.
