Not one to be outdone by statue-unveiling Florida and/or statue-announcing Auburn, the Crimson Tide made a nine-foot statue of Nick Saban available for everyone in Tuscaloosa to see yesterday.

"This statue's going to represent what that team accomplished," Saban said. "Their names are all going to be on the national championship plaque in the sidewalk so that someday their children can come back and say, 'See, my dad was part of that team. My dad did something special for the university that will live on forever.'"

So, how long till somebody tries to poison it?
