Toomer's Corner Trees May Hang On Longer Than Expected

Auburn Tigers fans have been told to expect their beloved Toomer's Corner trees to waste away after a lethal poisoning for which Harvey Updyke has been accused, but some experts are saying the situation might not exactly be as grim as feared.

While some have proposed using alternate trees for toilet paper celebrations of 2011 Auburn victories, the Toomer's trees might be able to fulfill their duties for one more year after all. There's currently no TPing allowed.

The trees have been rolled to capacity twice this year: once in celebration after Auburn's national title victory, and once in memory and defiance after news broke that the trees are likely doomed. Even fans of hated rivals would like to see at least one more Toomer's Corner celebration in the future -- you'd have to think an Updyke sentencing would inspire one, but that's not quite what I mean.
