    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.
    I haven't seen or heard the first Alabama fan condone what he did.

    I don't condone it. I also don't shed a tear for a lunatic fan base that was slowly but surely killing the trees themselves.

    Apart from the poor grammar, that's still hilarious.

    Yesterday I visited 5 homes of Veterans that are in need of a few things like a roof that does not leak, a refrigerator that works, clean water, heat & a/c. We a putting together a plan & budget for next month to fix them.

    So, this tree stuff really gets me. What has API done for the community?

    We hear a lot about Alabama players stepping up. I would have a little more concern about the trees is it was not so self centered.

    Do good & good things come back to you.

    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.
    FYI, Updyke is originally from Alabama who came back to HIS state after retirement. He is obviously certifiable, but HIS actions were HIS and not those of anyone on this site or any other Alabama fan. If you don't like criticism of auburn YOU are on the wrong site.

    From the linked article:

    To keep the tradition alive, the university and city will create structures at the College Street-Magnolia Avenue intersection that are suitable for rolling after the oaks are gone.

    Anyone else sensing there's some kind of creepy obsession with toilets around that place?
    My understanding is that they plan to erect a large toilet to replace the trees, it will have the added convenience that after they've rolled it, they can clean up with a simple flush.

    Are you a regular visitor to Texags.com? As the A in your profile is a minimum 500 post guy on their site and here you claim to be a Bama fan with less than 100 posts here. Are you also WarAGle? Interesting you post on the thread there as well.

    I visit texags but never post. Just find it interesting that you seldom post on Tidefans but you do on a A&M board.
