PHOTOS: Mizzou unveils new Tiger statue, and most fans hate it
The University of Missouri recently unveiled a new Tiger statue on the exterior of the South end zone.
The school has been renovating the south end zone as part of a two-year, $98 million project. The project includes a brand new locker room, weight room and club and suite seating hopefully ready for the 2019 season.
And it includes a brand new massive Tiger statue.
Missouri revealed the new statue Saturday, and fans didn’t really care for it too much:

The university shared those photos on its Mizzou Athletics Twitter account, and the replies weren’t too positive. Here are some of them:
