    Entrance looks very sharp from the concourse at Hilton.

    Dedication article:

    "Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum" Dedicated ro Coach Orr - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Written in past tense. They released this a few minutes early. :) The article includes pictures of the not-quite-yet-unveiled statue.

    Love this quote.
    Johnny: "Hey Freddie. I gotta tell you this, but when I was here, Danny Manning never won a game."

    That was really cool to see, even though it paused every 5 seconds to buffer.

    I'm so glad that Johnny is getting honored in proper fashion. I love that man.

    Great 20 minutes, hopefully they leave it up for free for everyone to watch that couldn't catch the live stream.

    Yes and no. We got Johnny because Iowa State was willing to pay money for a basketball coach that no one was paying at that time. You might even say that ISU started the coaching arms race.

    But your point is well taken. He has done so much for ISU.

    That sure would be sweet! But, based on the size of that sign, I'd say that is going to go up somplace inside Hilton. I hope I'm wrong though.

    EDIT: oh nevermind, I just noticed it was in a display case. Disregard what I just said previously. I hope something like that really happens though!
