There aren’t many things that can register you lower on the totem pole of bad fandom than harassing recruits over Facebook or calling players’ personal cell phones to harrass them, but this is certainly one of them. A 62-year old Bammer man, Harvey Updyke, was arrested this morning for poisoning the oak trees in Auburn’s Toomer’s Corner for, apparently, no other reason than he is an Alabama fan. Early reports say the trees are destined to die, which obviously leaves Matt Jones with nothing to hug when he travels there in his new CBS gig. It’s sad.
If there’s a bright side, it’s the mug shot. It’s more Alabama than Wal-Mart football jerseys. “You guilty?” “Yup.”
