Auburn Cuts Down Poisoned Toomer's Corner Oaks: After two years of rescue efforts, Auburn University is cutting down two iconic trees at Toomer's Corner that an Alabama fan poisoned after his team lost a football game to Auburn. Harvey Updyke confessed in a call to an Alabama sports radio show under the fake name "Al in Dadeville," ending his call "Roll Damn Tide." He was caught and pleaded guilty in March to felony criminal damage to an agricultural facility. He will serve at least six months of a three-year sentence.
