    Think that's what they're planning. I hope they choose a species more fitted to the climate than live oaks, which generally range well south of there. However, knowing them, they will replace with the same...

    Maybe they could go with fake cell phone tower trees. At least they could make up for some of the lost revenues due to the drop in ticket sales.

    That's what the rest of the entire nation thinks about Bama fans.

    I for one *DO* hate that this transplant Texan named Updyke came into MY state and messed with OUR rivalry with Auburn.

    He's just some lonely old man who wanted to be a part of something because daddy didn't put down the bottle long enough to spend time with him.

    I can't understand why ANYONE would condone this outsider's involvement with OUR state's rivalry.

    Roll Tide but screw Updyke.

    Spoken like a Moo guy. Auburn screwed the rivalry with Dye, Lowder, Housel and Fear the Thumb Tubs.

    WalMart is selling plastic replicas of the trees, next to the Auburn caps. Yes really.

    You haven't read that, according to the self-generated numbers they turned into the WSJ, they are one of the most valuable franchises in college football, worth millions more than Bama, believe it or not...

    I've said all along they should use the wood from the trees to make furniture and other barn stuff to sell. I'm sure there are some boogs that would pay big $$$ for an authenic Toomer's Oak rocker with Aubie cushions.

    Yeah, because all of those are as bad as attacking a tradition. I mean, the whole thumb thing is less harmless than the rye grass they sowed.

    Updyke poisoning the trees is along the same lines as one of those barners destroying our Bryant statue. I mean destroying, **never to be replaced**. (Don't give me any sob story about some duct tape and a jersey either.)

    What surprises me is the number of Alabamians who condone what this retired TEXAS cop decided to do once he finally moved to our state.

    He has ZERO idea what it's like to grow up with our rivalry or how we're raised from birth to pick sides. He's just some outsider who wants to be a part of something, so he decided that Alabama football was "important" to him.

    The guy is a loon. A mental case. He tried to name his kid Ally Bama. Who wants to be associated with someone like that?

    Guess it's the mature part in me coming out right now. You know, the part that knows how to act in public. The part that knows how to act when it matters.

    Screw cheating Auburn. I love seeing them take their place with the rest of the bottom dwellers... but screw Updyke more.

    "Rolling the corner is a uniquely Auburn tradition, and whether we roll trees or other structures, the camaraderie and sense of togetherness is part of what makes Auburn a special place."

    Anyone else sensing there's some kind of creepy obsession with toilets around that place?
