That picture would hurt my stomach a little less if Updyke's dessciated, crow picked, toilet papered, drawn and quartered corpse was hanging from one of those branches...

I hope he gets cornholed on an hourly basis in prison.

He should be daily raped with one of the larger branches they just pruned from the trees.

Well, sad news. It was reported on 560 AM in Dothan that it has been decided the Toomers Oaks
will be removed.

What most expected but still sad to hear. There was an article out not to long ago that Auburn was still
going to allow for the Oaks to be rolled this year. Not sure if that is still the plan.

Saw them in person up there yesterday. It was awful to look at them.

Well, since they can't be saved, we can still remember them.

http://www.thewareaglereader.com/2013/02/plan-for-toomers-corner-2-0-narrowed-down-to-two-designs/

Plans for redesign down to two, and will be voted upon on a future date.

Very subtle difference in the two, but I suppose the circle design is slightly cooler because you could roll from all directions instead of just one.

I agree, I like the Circle Wall Scheme a little better.

The shitty thing is in both designs the trees are much further from the street.

I like them both.  Being further from the street doesn't bother me so much as long as the AUPD still blocks off the road after a victory.

I like the arcing path. Seems as you look down it, you have a path of unknown destination. A journey, so to speak.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

The Circle Wall Scheme just looks like a nice place for a gathering.  The Arching Path looks like it's heading nowhere...much like the Athletics Department.

Are the people in charge truly mental?   :facepalm: :haha: :facepalm: :haha: :facepalm: :haha:

Not sure if this has been mentioned but it would be nice to see Auburn make some sort of wood structure or monument with what they have when cutting down the Oaks.
