It's been on my mind for a while. Current possibilities:
1980 BoulevardConsidering the world's agreement that Herschel Walker might be The Greatest College Football Running Back of All Time, it's pretty staggering that there is no statue of the guy at the stadium.
Steel Chair Street
It's not like everyone can't think of a good pose. He could be doing this. Or this. Or this. Potentially this. Or this. This might be over the top. But maybe this.
Or this, which has sound.
We might have to name the entire campus after Munson.
The Dooley garden seems nicely done. Tim Tucker at The AJC had this at the bottom of a piece he did last week:
A noted lover of plants, Dooley... accompanied renowned horticulturist and former UGA professor Michael Dirr and Atlanta landscape architect Alex Maddox to a nursery in Hickory, N. C., to personally select many of the trees and shrubs that have been planted in the plaza.I'll tell you a secret about reporters: We like to put cool stuff at the end.
Maddox said visitors “will see plants they don’t normally see — weeping plants and variegated pines,” among others. And plenty of Dooley’s beloved Japanese maples.
The center of attention, though, is the bronzed Dooley, held aloft by players wearing Nos. 64 and 88. The numbers represent the first (1964) and last (1988) seasons that Dooley coached the Dogs. On the back of the bronzed jerseys, the players’ names are “National” and “Champions."
The Dooley Garden is fine. Until President Adams leaves and we can move the statue to the stadium and keep the park, too. The Michael Adams Athletic Complex Dawg Park. That has a certain ring to it.
