Shots Of Saban Statue Unveiled

With the University of Alabama targeting this spring’s A-Day game as the unveiling date for its new Nick Saban statue, photos of the statue (at left) in its pre-bronze stage have hit the web.

And they’re sorta/kinda spooky.  Would you want to run into that guy in a dark alley? 

The Tuscaloosa News and TideSports.com — now working together under the Rivals.com banner — have more info on the statue and more photos available here.

We at MrSEC.com know that it’s easy to poke fun at a statue.  We also know that we don’t have the artistic ability to draw a good stick-man likeness of Bama’s coach.  That said, we still think there’s a certain Dr. Zaius quality to the new Saban statue.

I read that this was the 2nd attempt to get it right. The so called artist needs to go for try #3 !!!!!

I could care less what the statue looks like, I know what it represents...the 13th National Championship, something that other fans from other schools can only dream about. We respect accomplishment, they hug trees....

Actually that would be the Bama's 7th National Championship (with only 3 being unanimously awarded). The NCAA doesn't reconize 13, only Bammers do.

either way, UA has more national championships than any other college football team (with only Notre Dame having as many as bama does)

Get your facts right before you run your mouth Barner. The NCAA recognizes 11 per their website. 1925, 26, 30, 61, 64, 65, 73, 78, 79, 92, and 2009. I agree to remove 1941 BUT Alabama should absolutely claim 1934, 45, 66, 75, and 77 which totals 16 Championships!

Well if you count the bowl games they lost in the same season after they were declared "national champs" it comes out to around 7. Sorry.

The NCAA does not recognize ANY football championships as official NCAA championships since they do not sanction a tournament at the end of the season. Check their web site and you will find no football championships listed for Division I-A.

When I first read the headline, I thought someone was shooting a gun at the statue. Then I saw the picture. It looks like something out of a Jim Henson movie.

hahahahaha i really hope for their sake this is just the one they are going to put out first for the barners to destroy. I have to think they have a less embarrassing one sitting in a room somewhere

That doesn't really look like Nick Saban, it looks more like an 80 year old grandpa. If I was Alabama I would have used Blair Buswell who created the General Neyland Statue at Tennessee and does the busts for the NFL Hall of Fame. The statue of Saban could have been so much better. Buswell's work is spot on.
