The Legacy of the Toomer's Oaks

Posted: Updated:

One last roll.

Once Auburn's A-Day game ends, the Auburn family will return to Toomer's Corner one more time to cover the Toomer's Oaks in toilet paper.

That's traditionally what Auburn fans do after a big win.

Since the trees are dying, they will be removed on Tuesday, April 23rd.

Harvey Updyke plead guilty to poisoning the Toomer's Oaks in March.

We here at Alabama's 13 wanted to take a closer look at what is the true legacy of the Toomer's Oaks for members of the Auburn family.

Special thanks to our chief editor Kyle Clark, news director Tim Gardner, and Auburn fan Daniel Lowe for helping me with the piece.
