Florida beats Alabama to the punch in the Great SEC Statue Race.

It looks like Florida is going to win the race between the school and Alabama in which SEC member school can erect a statue the fastest. Florida has announced that the unveiling of the statues of the school's three Heisman Trophy winners, Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerffel, and Tim Tebow, will be at halftime during the Gator's April 9 spring game. This beats Alabama's plan to unveil its statue of BCS championship winning coach Nick Saban on April 16, at the Crimson Tide's spring game.

It looks like Alabama will have to console itself with the title of scariest statue in the SEC, if not the actual South. (I'd say the ugliest, too. But the hideous statue of Athena in Nashville's Parthenon replica beats it hands down.)
