Really???


Really? You poison two historic trees because you're a fan of a rival school? And maybe because you're crazy as a loon? How very sad.

To all the Auburn faithful, my sympathies for the loss of the grand, old oaks at Toomer's Corner. All of us in the SEC support you, as do many across the country.

And, hey, people, let's get a grip.

T has been so upset about the trees all week - he is a BIG AU fan - so ridiculous someone had to go so far to prove hatred. Its a game!

I know, can you believe it? Crazy, literally.

Just pathetic that someone would do this. The trees are 130 years old, which is very upsetting to me. I am an Alabama fan and can't imagine what would make some idiot do such.
While I am not an Auburn fan and not tied up in the tradition as much as the tree aspect, I am sick for my Auburn friends.
