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.

Bama students vandalized their own campus with Auburn graffiti before the 1953 Iron Bowl

In 1953, a Bama student, either out of self-loathing, or in an attempt to rile his team to victory in the upcoming Iron Bowl, painted not just random doors and alleys of his own campus with Auburn slogans, but Denny freakin' Chimes. So when someone tries to stop you from relieving yourself on the Saban statue at this year's game, just tell them: "I learned it from watching you."
