    I'm sticking with a statue, as it'll be a lasting tribute. My concern would be the cost and where to put it.

    Too bad we can't vote for two. I want the court and Center St. named after him.

    Re: The best way to honor Coach Johnny Orr (the poll)

    I'd love to go for both the statue and the court. I think he deserves it. Hell, even the street. Sorry I didn't put more than one option, but I'm trying to narrow it down to something that would draw the most support.

    Re: The best way to honor Coach Johnny Orr (the poll)

    Personally, I think you do the court naming first. Then if there is still even more support, do the statue later. The court name will be visible every time an event is televised. The statue will only be seen by those at the arena, or if the tv crew decides to flash an image of it on a telecast. IMHO the court idea is best.

    Name the court off of him and get rid of that damn pioneer label!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    While your at it we should get Barry Stevens autograph put on the S.W. Corner of the floor. Nothing special just a his autograph.

    I like Orr court though.

    Statue is my vote


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
