Saban statue to be dedicated during Tide’s 2010 season at a date to be determined

Earlier this year, Aug. 20 was floated as a date when the statue would be dedicated, but near the end of June, Turnipseed said he didn’t know where that date came from and cast doubt on that possibility.

Progress has been made on models of the statue, however, and once final small details are settled, casting will begin soon, Turnipseed indicated, but the dedication will not necessarily be scheduled at the earliest possibility.
