The anticipation is over, and Alabama didn’t create a new ‘Beat Auburn’ sign in its locker room. Instead, the Tide are installing a real waterfall.
Recent five-star quarterback commit David Cornwell sent shockwaves through the media when he tweeted that a waterfall in Bama’s locker room is about to be legit.
That waterfall in Bama’s locker room is about to be legit! C’mon who has a waterfall.. No one!

Alabama sports information director Jeff Purinton says it’s true.
Now, it’s not like we’re talking about a lazy river fit with inner tubes and waterfalls for the ladies, but the waterfall is small and it’s real. Purinton told AL.com that ‘it will be coming from a system that can flow from a few feet above the hot and cold tubs’, which are located in the new shower area on the first floor.
The waterfall is part of Alabama’s $9 million project to renovate and upgrade the Tide’s ongoing ‘process’, which includes new graphics, lockers, meeting rooms and one theater-style meeting room.
That’s what two championships in a row will get you – a waterfall. I wonder what happens if the Tide pull off a three-peat?
