Toomer's Corner Vandalism Prompts Mal Moore, Alabama AD, To Comment

After the herbicide attack that is expected to kill Toomer’s Corner’s famed oak trees, Alabama Crimson Tide athletic director Mal Moore has released a statement. As the person in charge of the Auburn Tigers biggest rival, this was a very wise thing to do, as things could get, like, embarrassingly SEC really quickly.

Moore:

It’s an awful act, a terrible thing to do. A lot of what makes our two programs so special is our many unique traditions. So, hearing this about Toomer’s Corner is upsetting to me in several ways. I certainly hope that whomever is responsible is held accountable.

Moore also claimed a set of security signs around Bryant-Denny Stadium were not recently added.

It’s all but impossible that a Bama fan wasn’t responsible for the act. There’s simply not another fanbase that cares enough about Auburn to go to this much trouble. Or maybe it’s just somebody who really hates trees. Let’s keep our minds open here.
