Toomer's to be rolled for the last time after A-Day


quote:

Auburn University announces Toomer's Corner will be rolled for the last time on Saturday April 20th, after Auburn's A Day game

Serious mixture of anger and sadness about this.

I thought we already did the "last" rolling?

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. Fans will be invited to gather there as they always have following big victories or other momentous occasions.
Curious to see what they put up. I would have thought that more trees would be planted.

Dead.

Sounds like we'll be relocating three trees this time when the renovations start

The plan is for more trees (2-3) plus a major renovation of the corner

The story I linked said structures would be put up not trees.

Those are temporary while the corner gets renovated.

Each time I see more news about the trees, I think back to what Updyke did and think "Is this real life? Did someone really stoop that low?"

And I'm not even an Auburn fan.

And yes, I know it doesn't reflect on Bama fans as a whole. I'm just commenting on the depravity of that one person.

Can you imagine the ongoing story if Harvey didn't come out and say that stuff?

The trees would be dying and no one would know why. A test later would show that they were poisoned, but this would come out after AU went bowl-less so people would be wondering who the hell would do it then?

Never rolled Toomers before, but I'll be at A-Day, so I'll probably try to make it a point to.
