In a previous entry, I shared that Auburn University‘s historic Toomer’s Corner oak trees were poisoned with the powerful herbicide Spike 80DF, according to a telephone call made by the now-arrested prime suspect, 62-year-old Harvey Almorn Updyke of Dadeville, AL.
Mr. Updyke called the Paul Finebaum sports radio talk show and confessed on air that, “The weekend after the Iron Bowl, I went to Auburn, Alabama – because I live 30 miles away – and I poisoned the two Toomer’s trees. I put Spike 80DF in ‘em.“
In that entry entitled “Arrest Made in Poisoning of Auburn’s Historic Toomer’s Corner Oak Tree,” I remarked that “There may be some saving grace in this issue because warm weather and Spring have not arrived with any consistency yet, and therefore the trees may not yet be in bud, and (I suppose) do not yet have foliage, thus preventing significant uptake of poison.”
Now, it seems that at least one other voice concurs.
And, that’s good news!

There may be some saving grace in this issue because warm weather and Spring have not arrived with any consistency yet, and therefore the trees may not yet be in bud, and (I suppose) do not yet have foliage, thus preventing significant uptake of poison.
If there is any hope for those historic trees – and other trees nearby – I would imagine extraordinary measures must be taken. Those measures could include Read the rest of this entry »

The Nationally-Ranked Number 1 Auburn Tigers (13-0) meet the Nationally-Ranked Number 2 Oregon Ducks (12-0) – quack! (Good grief! Ducks?!? Give me a break! Please!) – January 10th in the BCS Championship Game in Glendale, AZ. The game will be telecast on ESPN, and ESPN3D, with kickoff at 7:30PM CST.
The ol’ quackers think they’re “king of the heap.” They’re fixin’ to learn an extremely valuable lesson… the HARD way. The SEC plays SMASH MOUTH FOOTBALL, and the Tigers are comin’ to getcha’! So, say your prayers, and ask for God’s mercy, ’cause the Tigers will have NONE on you!
WAR EAGLE, baby!!
Here’s what one columnist from Eugene, OR found out about the differences between Eugene, OR and Auburn, AL (and portender of things to come) in a brief, and very interesting piece! Read the rest of this entry »

The Iron Bowl is THE most intense rivalry of all sports rivalries… bar none.
There is absolutely NO QUESTION that is is even MORE intense than the Auburn v Georgia football rivalry, which has existed consistently far longer than the annual intrastate Auburn v Alabama football game known as the “Iron Bowl.”
Last Friday’s 75th annual match-up between the Auburn Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide was definitely one for the record books, as have been many of the games. For example, …Continue…

Alabama Coach Nick Saban gets angry after an illegal substitution penalty on his team in the second quarter the Iron Bowl at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Friday, Nov. 26, 2010. (The Birmingham News/ Mark Almond)
It seems the newest football stadium in Tuscaloosa is cursed.
And what might that curse be?
Bryant-Denny Stadium – better known as “Jordan-Hare West” – has proven to be a losing grounds for the Crimson Tide when they play the Auburn Tigers.
With the direction of Head Coach Gene Chizik, leadership of Quarterback Cameron Newton, and the fearsome quarterback sacking power of Defensive Tackle Nick Fairley, Auburn proved yet again that their end game is a powerhouse, and why they’re ranked #2 nationally, and remain undefeated, now 12-0, and 8-0 in the SEC.
Alabama was first on the board, and in a big way. Quarterback Greg McElroy drove consecutive first downs the field on each play, resulting in what turned out to be three consecutive scoring drives each time ‘Bama had possession of the ball in the first quarter. However, …Continue…

Saturday, November 13th 2010′s 114th annual NCAA SEC Division I football match-up between Auburn University v University of Georgia was fraught with problems, particularly in the last two minutes of regulation play! Auburn’s 49-31 victory was made sweeter by Georgia’s sour grapes behavior.
Of special interest were concerns about Auburn’s Defensive Tackle, #90, Nick Fairley, whose 6-5, 298 pound Junior frame hailing from Mobile, AL was penalized for a personal foul against 6-foot-1, 209 pound, #11, Freshman Georgia Quarterback Aaron Murray, when he hit Murray in the back with his helmet, after Murray had released the ball. He was immediately penalized for a personal foul, with an automatic first down for the now 5-6, 3-5 SEC Georgia.
Afterward, Fairley, described by some as …Continue…

In what will surely be remembered for years to come in the annals of the NCAA and SEC, the final two minutes of the 2010 Auburn v Georgia game took a grossly filthy turn. The undefeated 11-0, Number 2 ranked Auburn Tiger’s 49-31 victory was made even sweeter by Georgia’s sour behavior. Rule making will undoubtedly follow.
After having overcome a 21 point deficit in the first half, Auburn was leading by 18 points.
Auburn’s end game is …Continue…
