    I think one Nile Kinnick statue outside the stadium is probably good enough.

    Without a doubt, it should be--and by should, I mean that this is WAY overdue--be Fred Becker. Who was Fred Becker?

    1. An All-American Iowa FB player in the late teens, back when players from the Midwest almost never made AA squads, which were dominated by players from the East.

    2. Becker was killed in WWI when he still had eligibility remaining--in other words, he was basically still a student who could've played if he'd returned home alive.

    He is, in his own way, nearly as important in Iowa FB history as Nile Kinnick, yet he remains relatively unknown to nearly all Iowa fans. This is a travesty. He deserves a statue.

    Very cool idea. Need to sell the hawks to those recruits.

    I am sure they take them past the trophy cases and hall of fame

    Just tell them the rivalry trophies are out for cleaning and aren't residing in Ames, Lincoln, Minneapolis and Madison.
    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the University of Iowa, and to the tradition for which it stands, one program, under God, indivisible, with winning and competitiveness sometimes.
