According to an Associated Press story, the university has stated that someone has deliberately poisoned the trees at Toomer’s Corner and that the historic live oaks likely can’t be saved.
The university said that “lethal” amounts of the herbicide Spike 80DF were found in the soil around the oaks. Of course, rolling Toomer’s Corner has become one of the iconic traditions of the Auburn program. Being a guy who appreciates the tradition and pageantry area of college football, it would a real shame if the famed spot had to be modified in any way.
