Statue at Ilinois

There may be a statue of an indian from the Illini tribe on the Illinois campus, but it can't be as cool as a statue of Red Grange.
I believe a statue of SarcasMike's uncle tackled this statue.  (do I have the story right?)

  1. That is a nice statue - I don't know if Wabash has a statue of Floyd "Lefty" Geraldeau. They probably should.
    His version of the story was that Wabash would match him with Grange so whenever Grange came in and out of the game, Uncle Lefty would go in and out. So he got a standing ovation with each change.
    He also claimed to have tackled him long after he was down and got a late hit penalty.
