Renee Bemis did the Yordon Center one:

I'd lean more towards her as an option

So cynical. But, so true.

RE: Memorial for Diesel
Can we start a go-fund-me for the master facility plan too? We can put a sweet statute of Diesel (replacing huskie pig) as the players run into New Huskie Stadium.

I would have some money for this. Someone with contacts in the athletic department needs to get approval. Setting up a gofundme would be no problem.

The High-Fiving Smiling Bronze Diesel is an incredible idea. Mark me in for $100 as well if we can have athletics confirm.

OK, I think we should push this forward. Do we have a volunteer to approach Athletics?

Does anyone have a suggestion who in athletics would be the best first contact?

I really think this should be made to happen. It would give fans a great picture spot at the entrance! Illinois has a giant Red Grange.

We should have Deisel

The best way to approach this with athletics is to show commitment to funding the whole facility plan with the caveat that if we come through with funding, they will come through with a statue, memorial, or what have you.

I am not sure how to "show commitment to funding the whole facility plan," and so, I think I will continue to see about pushing this very doable idea forward. This would do quite a bit to add to game day atmosphere and build tradition. And privately funded--- it should be a no-brainer.
