Seriously, I've been off campus too long. Why is there a statue with a chainsaw?

I said that I would reserve judgment until I saw it in person. Not bad on the 12th man deal. Give it a chance. The fourth student from the right with the big boobies represents the majority of female students I saw tonight.

E King Gill has a very big head. WTF?

Did they have current students model for the statue? If so, where did they find them?

I guess the Corps needed more monuments to polish, I wonder if they'll have new campusologies commemorating whoever the yell boy is, "xxxxxx class of 'xx; yell leader; student leader; financial advisor Edward Jones now enshrined in bronze as a tribute to the committee that deemed he needed to be recognized..."
I'm not personally attacking the model for the statue, whatever it takes to leave your mark bud, and I think the Corps and Band monuments are appropriate, but the war hymn statue is a stretch. Speaking of which what happened to the 12 empty seats that were supposed to "commemorate the 12th man?"

Boggsie - the backlash from the 12 empty seats idea was swift and severe.

For most of the girl "models" .. why didn't they dress more appropriately when posing for statue? Flip flops? THAT dress? This thread is too long for me to read this late; were the real people there for the unveiling?

For anyone that was wondering... they look worse in person than in photos.

Truly awful stuff. The people in charge are incomprehensibly stupid if they think any of this reflects well on the school.

This sort of reminds me if the time when Communications had all of the A&M students do the yells and traditions of the other SEC schools and then they put the video out there and it was ridiculed by everyone. We were trying too hard, it was unnecessary, and it just looked stupid. The difference is that these statues were planned for a long time, cost a lot of money, many administrators reviewed these, and unless removed or relocated they are permanent in front of Kyle.

Regarding the video Jason told TexAgs that Aggies are too sensitive and need tougher skin.

Saw them today and thought Gill looked absolutely the worst. We should have hired the guy who did Bryant's statue at Alabama. Gill just... I don't know how to explain it, but it looks cheap. Not the quality it should be.

I think the student on the far right is a Targaryen descendent.

Anyone know how many more of these stupid statues they are going to put in around Kyle Field?

WOW. This is hideous and hilarious at the same time.

In 2013 there was a model search for the saw'em off: Model search for war hymn statue

mySA thought this was spooky before the unveiling

What the heck? Is this for real?

Horrible, what needs to be done to get those POS removed?

Would demand a refund for that junk...
