Pour One Out For Auburn's Trees Tonight

Toomer's Corner, the spiritual heart of Auburn's campus and the destination spot to celebrate wins, was poisoned with a "very lethal dose" herbicide. Naturally, the perpetrator bragged about it on Finebaum's show. People have heart attacks. People admit to tree-killing. These are things that happen in SEC sports talk radio land.


The oaks of Toomer's Corner, believed to be at least 130 years old, are perhaps better recognized draped in toilet paper. If Auburn can't stop the trees from dying, and they probably can't, it's going to be a sad scene after future Iron Bowls with spooled rolls lying in the dirt.

Even sadder, there's a webcam trained on the trees so we can all watch them die a slow death.
