Bama Fans Raising Money For Auburn Oaks; Saban Speaks Up

According to The Tuscaloosa News, a group of Alabama alumni and students have started an initiative to raise money to help replace the oaks at Toomer’s Corner.

As of 1:45pm ET today, the push had brought in more than $3,000.

Nick Saban has also stepped up to talk about the poisoning of the trees.

“The great rivalries and traditions are what make college football special and we respect the traditions of every team we play, especially the schools in our conference and in our state,” Saban said.  “It is important to be positive in support of your own program and there is absolutely no benefit to negative behavior toward any other institution.”

“We are truly saddened by this destructive behavior from an individual who certainly does not represent our institution, our program, or our fans in any way.  It is important that we continue to respect one another in the spirit of good sportsmanship for many years to come.”

Good for Saban and good for those Alabama supporters who are working hard to make Harvey Updyke look like the lone nut that he — apparently — is.
