Sure, toy bones spraypainted gold (though we should do this right in the future).  Each bone has an engraved score and year of each game and recipient. 

Imagine Fiore and Priore and Stanley on the field together at LaValle receiving this after the buzzer?

 ;D ;D ;D
Yes.. anything to start the tradition.. once it catches on. Then the schools will take care of rest just to keep generating the buzz..

This are surely great ideas. Maybe we can formally write them down and submit to the Athletic department. A lot of these don't sound to costly either, they just require support from the administration. This is how traditions are built. But most traditions come from the fans, and WE are the fans of SBU. We gotta make this happen.

I really like the statue idea. Build a huge wolf statue and put it at the Main Entrance in the middle of the circle... How much could it really cost to build?

I was thinking of "Battle for the Bones". Before I make the suggestion thought of doing a quick google search.. alas its already used in two different rivalry games!!! :( :(

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_for_the_Bones
&
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_for_the_Bone

see the names of other rivalry games:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NCAA_college_football_rivalry_games

The trophy name "the bones" is also already in use. We need to be more creative!

Dammit.

Bowl of Bones classic?

Bowl of Dog Bones?  Weve got the idea, now we just need the fine tuning.  Oh and the admin support!

For the wolf, i was thinking one at the main entrance of LaValle.  Fans rub the nose/tail on teh way in, until it tarnishes after years, good luck charm.

Well thats not so much a "classic" as its an event that we are calling a classic.  After all, the game has gone on for years!

"The Bowl of Golden Dog Bones"

Penalty box could be called "the Pound", or perhaps the student section.

Are we doing one giant golden bone in a giant dog bowl or many smaller golden bones in the giant dog bowl?

Ok.. Once we have a solid plan, I will try to catch Priore's attention by email/twitter etc. Unless there is someone on this board who knows someone in the athletic department to present the idea to him directly. Otherwise, we fans can just go with the plan and invite Albany fans. I am sure they would excited too.

I also should have said, that in terms of tradition, we do have things like the Zebra Path, though it would be better if students actually knew the story behind it.  I dont.

Also, working off the bone idea, years ago at the stadium they used to give out thunder sticks- can we make those to look like bones???

Wait, you can, thanks google:
