Video: The making of Nick Saban's statue

Nick’s statue goes up on Saturday in Tuscaloosa prior to the Alabama spring game.

Having won the 2009 national championship, Saban will be the fourth coach with a bronze statue outside Byrant-Denny Stadium next to the Walk of Champions.

Saban, Bear Bryant, Gene Stallings, Wallace Wade, and Frank Thomas have all led the Crimson Tide to a national championship.

Considering the awful circumstances surrounding the oak trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn, we'll bet Bama security will have a close eye on the statues for the immediate future.

Saban's statue was created by a truly gifted undergraduate student named Jeremy Davis. Davis' work from start to finish was captured on film.
