After Thursday morning’s press conference on the Toomer’s Oaks poisoning, we were able to grab an interview with assistant Auburn agronomy professor Stephen Enloe who addressed the media regarding the condition of the trees.
Enloe, who did not attend Auburn, and who has only been a professor at Auburn for three years, appeared to tear up during the press conference when asked if the oaks would survive a high and illegal dose of the herbicide Spike 80DF.
He also seemed to get emotional when we asked him if he got emotional.
“When I came to Auburn, I came all in,” he said. “I love this place.”

I can completely sympathize with Mr. Enloe. I’ll admit, I have no connections with Auburn. I began following them a few years back, and have since then gone all in. I believe in Auburn, and love it!
Auburn captures your heart very quickly and fills it with pride!! And those ancient oak trees were an essential site on our campus to feel the history of our growth as a respected and established State University which gave a sense of belonging to all of our community.
