The realist in my says someone really needs to check with NIU athletics before any donations are excepted.

i'm in and think this is a fantastic idea and tradition as long as sh*t doesn't get weird like Texas A&M:

[Image: atm02.jpg]

... yes that is a cemetery for their mascots... yes they have their own little score board.

"The dog cemetery once had a view of Kyle Field's scoreboard, but renovations and moving of the grave sites blocked the view and a miniature scoreboard had to be installed at the new location. ... All the dogs are buried with their heads and paws pointed towards the stadium, so that in death “they can always watch the Aggies outscore their opponent on the field”"

http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/revei...t-cemetery

Because there is honoring a good dog and excellent mascot and then there's Texas, who always has to out do everyone.

A statue of Diesel giving the high five where you or your kids could high five him back for a sweet photo? I got money for that.

Count me in. I wonder if this is something our AD would sanction and perhaps help gain some traction though public donation. May be worth an email...

Definitely. I would hope NIU would welcome this and support it in every way.

I'm in for $50 if we get approval from NIU on the condition that it looks like Diesel (no PigDiesel) and that he has a smile on his face and the high five going.

If athletics knew donations would be greater than the cost of the statue, they'd be all for this idea.

Any idea of what the Pig Dog cost? 2K? I'd be in for $50.00 at-least, if not $100.00
