The famed Toomer's Corner Oaks are coming down and I'm not sure how to feel about it. I'd be outraged if the Buckeye trees we plant for our All-Americans were purposely poisoned BUT I went from kinda liking or at least being indifferent to Auburn to despising them after the Cam scam, so I've convinced myself that those trees dying is payback for buying an athlete and a National Championship.
The dumbass that poisoned those trees would've never been caught or at least not proven guilty if he didn't brag/confess on a radio station, which makes me wonder what pranks are out of bounds these days in the average fans minds?
Back in the day you would hear of mascots (mainly real animals being kidnapped) and other things that seemed like good natured fun, but were, or are now potential felonies.
Would the average OSU or Mich fan poison a special tree or hack into the computer system that runs the stadium scoreboard of the opposing team and make some mild or not so mild comments about the other team/fans IF they knew they could keep from getting caught if they kept it very quiet?
I personally wouldn't and wouldn't have stolen the other teams dog etc back in the day, but I do think some of those pranks back then were funny...getting the other teams fans to hold up poster boards spelling out "we suck" is one of the only funny things I've seen like that in recent time. I'd like to see more. (but no catfishing).
