In 2010, an idiot Alabama superfan named Harvey Updyke poisoned the famous oak trees at Toomer’s Corner on Auburn University’s campus because he felt it was the only way to properly express his hatred for Auburn. Updyke spent six months in Lee County Jail for murdering trees and defacing one of Auburn’s most famous landmarks.

Auburn ain’t layin’ down. This here’s the SEC and War Damn don’t take no crap from nobody! The university plans on planting new trees on February 16, 2015. The trees are actual clones of the original oaks and are “mature” trees, so students will be able to “roll the oaks” ASAP.

Apparently, this was the plan all along. No way they were gonna lay down for a guy who looks like this.

“Our goal all along was to restore the corner with large trees at the earliest opportunity,” said Dan King, assistant vice president for Facilities Management. “Last summer we completed the hardscape to improve aesthetics and the pedestrian experience. The only thing missing was the trees. We think this plan honors the tradition of the historic original oaks.”

In addition to the trees at Toomer’s Corner, 30 oak trees will now run from Sanford Hall to Toomer’s Corner.

War Damn Eagle.
