Auburn University has released the following message from Head Football Coach Gene Chizik about the poisoning of the oak trees on Toomer’s Corner.
“It’s unfortunate that an incident like this has occurred, but it was an isolated act by one individual. I encourage the entire Auburn family to continue to show class and dignity moving forward. While the trees at Toomer’s may have been poisoned, the roots and spirit of Auburn will continue to be as strong as they have ever been.”
We agree with Coach Chizik that the roots of the Auburn Spirit continue to be strong. War Eagle!
