Banners high…

You don’t want to waste that alliteration, at least we don’t. But the almost finished Toomer’s Triangle will technically just be a V (the Toomer’s V?) unless Auburn starts winning some big games.

We asked City of Auburn Director of Public Works / City Engineer Jeff Ramsey and David Dorton, the city’s Director of Public Affairs, about it. Both were on hand Tuesday morning for the installation—and rolling!—of the wires connecting the triangle of poles.

Here are some more photos:

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."
