Admittedly, we've included this tradition with a bit of trepidation.
We will be the first to acknowledge that this is a beloved tradition at Auburn, and because of the alleged actions of one man, this tradition may sadly be lost to the pages of a history book.
We sincerely hope that the assembled arbor experts will beat the odds, and save the beloved trees.
That being said, we're still a little perplexed about this tradition.
The tradition of toilet papering the trees (and eventually everything else at or near the intersection of College Street and Magnolia Avenue) began in the early 1960s, although the exact date is unknown.
First, away victories were celebrated. Later, significant home wins were lauded with rolling the corner. Today, every football victory is cause for celebration at the historic corner, home to Toomer's Drug Store.
What makes this tradition so weird is that toilet papering is usually reserved for someone (or something) you don't like.
Would you be honored if some young punks in town TP'ed your house?
Unless you're an Auburn fan and the Tigers had just handed Alabama another football loss, chances are, no, you wouldn't be too happy about it.
