Auburn University says someone deliberately poisoned trees at Toomer's Corner, where fans have long celebrated big wins and hundreds gathered after the Tigers won the football national championship on Jan. 10.


Quote:
Calling himself "Al from Dadeville," he said he used Spike 80DF, also known as tebuthiuron, and the trees "definitely will die." The caller signed off with, "Roll Damn Tide."

Auburn fans traditionally celebrate by using toilet paper to roll the Toomer's Corner trees, which are estimated to be more than 130 years old.


It's shame to see someone do something to a part of the history of their university...I dont understand the toilet paper thing, but the trees have been there for a hundred plus years...and all over a college football game...

That is one of the most vicious, and stupidest rivalries around. Matched only by the blood and gore between UNC and Duke.

No, not even Michigan and tOSU match this.
