USA Today sports section pays tribute to Toomer’s Oaks by adding tree rings to its logo

USA Today’s graphic designers seem to be giving the Toomer’s Oaks a subtle, final shout out in today’s sports section.

The new USA Today circle logo appears to have been turned into the cross section of a tree trunk, complete with rings. The lead story? “Tireless fight ends to save Auburn’s oaks.”
