Your Opinion On Statues

 

 

Ok, follow me on this. Most of us would agree that Saban deserves a statue and he will get his this spring.

However, as I was watching the Basketball team yesterday something hit me. We may be 4-7 in SEC, but we are just an eye lash from being 7-4. With any depth at all we could be 9-2. At 9-2 in the SEC we would be a top 10 team. Now, we are not going to make the tourney this year short of a miracle finish. But, when I look at our team, and realize what we don’t have (1) a truly big and bulky inside man, (2) a pure shooter or two, and (3) a pure point guard, I am actually impressed with how Coach Grant has been able to keep us in every single game.

And thus, I got to thinking. If Coach Grant can recruit like I think he can it is not impossible for Bama to actually win a NC in basketball in 4 or 5 years. I mean if CMG could get us to the Elite 8, I think Grant can take us all the way. We are a few years away, but I definitely think it is possible.

So, if it does happen should Coach Grant get a statue? And, what about Sarah Patterson who has already won 4 National Championships? Plus, we do stand a very good chance of winning National Championships in Men's Cross Country, Men’s Golf, and Softball in the near future. Do those coaches, or others, if they win it all, deserve a statue or is this just for football coaches?

Personally, I’d like to see the Athletic Department making plans to honor any coach who wins a national championship with a statue. Those not in football, should be at a different location, not by the stadium, but I’d put them all together. Somewhere near Coleman may be the best location.

I’d like to see what others think. Personally, I think Sarah Patterson needs a statue right now. Of course, to the best of my knowledge, Bama's only NC's to date, besides FB, have been in gymnastics. So, if you give her a statue, in a "champions pavilion"  by Coleman she could be the only statue there for a long time.
