Rollings OK’d, But Auburn Looking To Adapt Toomer’s Tradition with ‘Attractive Intersection Structure’

Architects—get our your orange and blue thinking caps.

Auburn University officials announced this morning their decision to allow fans to continue rolling the Toomer’s Corner oaks temporarily,  but according to its press release is looking to adapt the rolling tradition to secure it’s long-term viability.

One option? Some sort of toilet paper-friendly structure installed at the corner of College and Magnolia in order to “bring the celebration back to the Corner, where it originated, not in the trees area.”

“The university’s Facilities Division is exploring a long-term solution we hope will return the tradition permanently: Create an iconic, attractive intersection structure, in partnership with the city and with its approval.”

If all goes according to plan, the design of the structure will be turned into an “architectural design contest.”

We vote for The Eric Estrada.
