Alabama board approves elephant statue outside of Bryant-Denny
Tuscaloosa News

Thoughts? I think it could be cool, but I'm kind of on the fence.

Hey, at least it's not some pussy elephant.

Looks fierce to me.


It's better than Andy Griffith's impression of Saban.

The half a million price tag would have been money well spent towards a new arena but other than that, I like it

I agree. I like it, but also have sticker shock at the cost to move and place it. Maybe one of those huge helicopters could move it for less. I hope they'll seek competitive bids for moving it.

I personally feel that we should get it a briggs and stratton and roll it out like Boomer Sooner.

If we don’t roll it out on the field behind one of these, we have lost it. (Gonna need to help it, but still)

I would actually pay to be able to dress like Forrest Gump and be able to drive across the field before the game At least folks would laugh

It looks pretty cool TBH....$450,000 sounds like a lot to move it. Probably the construction costs to move it and install it.

Football gets a new elephant and still no basketball arena. SMDH.

I don't care about elephant statues. I bet the kids like them so I'm ok with them. Sounds like a lot of money but it really isn't for a SEC school now. But if I had my way, I would lose elephant trumpet noise in BDS everytime we score. We score too much for that now.

It's going to be the centerpiece of a plaza. I'm sure a significant portion of the cost is landscaping/hardscaping.

I mean I want a new arena too, but let's not kid ourselves and act like this $450,000 will be the reason it doesn't happen.

Hopefully after another great year some more of the money folks will start writing their checks for it.

I like it, and honestly I wish we had more statues. I remember visiting Ivy League schools when my brother was college exploring and noticing how many monuments and statues were dotted all over the place. Gave a sense of history, grandiose and prestige.

I like it too. I just hope some kid or a dumbass frat student doesn't try climbing to the top of the trunk and falls and impales himself on the tusks.

My first thought when I saw this on twitter was an eye roll that it was going to be super Bammerish.

But that actually looks..........really good? I like it a lot. And Tuska is a fantastic name.
