The Louisville players pass by and touch the statue's shoes on their way onto the field.

If you ever get to tour the Louisville stadium, check out the statue and the Louisville football museum.

Growing up a Colts fan it was great to see Johnny U passing to Raymond Berrry. The two were amazing. Unitas still holds the record, which I feel may never be broken, with 47 games in a row with a TD pass. He was not fast or flashy. But that SOB could flat throw a football. Those were the days............RIP #19.

One of the first posters my little brother was allowed to hang in his room was of Johnny U. My brother was always trying to emulate his style from the haircut to the high tops.

Johnny U was one of our first sports icons growing up. Sad that he is gone <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />
