Auburn To Unveil Statues Of Heisman Winners

In the “irony can be pretty ironic sometimes” category, this one’s a peach.

Auburn announced last night that the school will unveil bronze statues of its three Heisman Trophy winners at Jordan-Hare Stadium sometime in this academic year.

Athletic director Jay Jacobs said that an artist had already begun work on statues of Pat Sullivan and Bo Jackson earlier this year.  In a letter announcing the statues, Jacobs said: “Little did we know that we would need to add a third statue so soon.”

The third statue, of course, will be a likeness of Cam Newton.

Here’s the irony part: As you know, many Auburn fans and Alabama fans don’t exactly get along.  If one school does something, the rival fanbase often mocks that thing.  Alabama’s new statue of Nick Saban is just such a thing.  And Auburn fans have mocked it.  One even took to The Birmingham News’ sound-off comment page to suggest that the folks in Tuscaloosa had made a false idol.

So what’s that guy going to say now?

The lesson: Be careful how you make fun of your rivals.
