The area around the Schottenstein Center on the Ohio State University campus is sprouting some colorful characters with names like Blarney, Adventure, First in Space. They all share the same last name, Brutus.

Ohio State officials had expected Brutus on Parade to raise as much as $1 million to help with renovation of the Thompson library. Rick Van Brimmer, director of Trademark and Licensing Services at OSU says they are now looking at a smaller donation after the statues are auctioned in October
