    Trees don't last forever. Especially when they're abused with toilet paper and finally torched.

    I am not sure what it's worth, but they may want to cut their losses, remove the trees and replace with some statues or something.

    Actually, a nice hay bale and pumpkin ensemble in the fall would be a nice touch.

    They could go back to rolling the power lines/power poles like they did before some blathering idiot thought about rolling the trees instead. It's still the dumbest idea I've ever heard, unless placing poop paper trees on the side of their senior rings is even worse...

    Toomer's oaks - the real story...

    Have you ever seen the Tree of Life in Animal Kingdom at Disney World? It's amazing. They obviously wouldn't need anything that big, but I don't understand why they don't hire someone to create a similar tree sculpture and roll that thing whenever they win. Let's face it...they don't give a damn about the trees, they just want something so that they can display to the world that they DO have access to toilet paper.

    Yep. Hard to roll a tree with catalog paper or corn cobs...

    They have a "tradition" that most people associate with stupid teenagers bored on Halloween night.

    Seriously, did you expect intelligence from them?

    Especially considering this is an agricultural school.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    Any competent welder could build a large metal tree for them to roll.

    Fire wouldn't be an issue, because I don't foresee a lot of rolling in their future.

    I think a statue is a great idea, Jet.

    No API person will ever listen to logic, even when it comes from their own sources. It's just easier to play the victim card.
