George Rogers statue
 
Found this on twitter:

@BSenkiwAIM: While not final, some folks around USC say there's a good chance a statue of George Rogers could be on display at the stadium at some point.

I guess it will be part of the new plaza?

Put him on a horse at full gallup with a saber in his hand extended above his head. Go for that classic style.

If any former Gamecock deserves a statue, it's Big George.

Anybody can buy a statue. George already is immortalized in a statue called the Heisman. The rest would just be a graven image.

Finally a statue thread that actually makes sense.

Yeah, just took 34 years to make it happen.

They should find an image of him trucking down the sideline like he used to do and use that as a model.

This a statue most of cockytalk can agree on.

I'm OK with this, but I'm upset that it took this long for the university
to do something like this for one of our greatest players of all time. It's
long overdue, and I really hope it's the first of many tributes to our
nationally recognized stars. ... It took Steve Spurrier coming to SC to get
our admin off their asses, and post accomplishments in the Stadium for our
record holding football players. This should have been done years before
Spurrier was on the coaching radar here.

The university has been calling me and begging me for money non-stop for the past year. I keep telling them no (I only recently found a job). I would give money for this. When a recruit goes to a school and sees championship trophies, it has to make an impression. We don't have one of those, but we do have a Heisman winner and, to me, there's never been a good excuse as to why there hasn't been a statue of Big George yet. I think that can make as big an impression on a young kid as anything else. What star athlete wouldn't dream of seeing themselves immortalized in bronze next to a Heisman winner. It says to every running back and QB that comes for a visit that they could be next.
It also honors one of the brightest spots in our programs history. It is long overdue.

I am all for this! I remember listening to the radio with my grandpa and hearing them talk about Big George!
