Toomer's Corner trees on Auburn campus poisoned.

There are times that college rivalries can get out of hand. This is the case where an Alabama fan called in to Paul  Finebaum's radio program on January 27th, claiming to have poisoned the oak trees at Toomer's Corner on the Auburn University campus. Auburn officials announced today that the trees had been poisoned, and probably won't survive.

Police are investigating the situation. There's no word if there is a connection to the recent acts of vandalism to Bear Bryant's statue or the writing of the 2010 Iron Bowl score using rye grass allegedly committed by  Auburn supporters. Either way, this is taking things way too far.
