    The toomer's trees. The gift that just keeps on giving for the barners!
    When my grandma left this life, I didn't say bye. I said see you later.

    RIP, Grandma. Forever in my heart.

    My generous employer gives us 104 vacation days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.

    Just kidding, personally I hate it for them. Seeing them stooping to the levels of rolling the trees after beating Alabama A&M is just down right pathetic. That would be like a professional chef getting excited for getting hired at McDonalds. Down right embarrassing

    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.

    Every Aubarn fan should read and know this, just like they should know that they have set those trees on fire time and time again.

    There are odd traditions all across the country.
    What I believe differentiates other traditions from the Toomer Oak commode commotion is their deep, animalistic attachment to it.

    The Old Oaken Bucket and Paul Bunyan's Axe are much, much older trophies,
    but Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota and Michigan actually keep it in perspective.

    Auburn's allegiance to those scraggly ol' stumps borders on idolatry.

    The tradition that everyone associates it with is a BM.

    Next they'll want a made-for-television movie in honor of those trees.

    They should plant seedlings. They'll be grown by the time they win another NC, if they ever win another.

    Instead of rolling the trees on a win, they should roll Chiz on a loss. They could start with that pickup-truck load in his F150 commercial.
