Read the article that was posted by Au24blue on the oaks and thought I would start a thread about what could possibly replace them after 4/20. I had an idea of replacing them with life-size statues. It would have to be an exact replica of the trees put in the exact place where the trees stood. Not 1/2 or 3/4 the size.....exact size. Even go as far as branch for branch. Detailed. Plenty of pictures to work with. Similar to the statues we now have of Cam, Bo and Pat Sullivan. I think it would be a great symbol that could never be destroyed and the tradition of rolling Toomer's could continue forever. No expense could be spared at making them exact and maybe some kind of plaque or something in stone somewhere in front of the statues with a picture of the original oaks or a drawing of them and something written to explain the tradition. I also believe that the University should work hand in hand with the alum/fan base on this one as far as ideas go and maybe even pitching in on the cost if we have to, because I think this is that important. Just wondering what other fans think. War Eagle!

All I can say is that is an amazing idea. I hope something permanent along those lines happens for the current and future students, alumni, and the university. WDE

Also, I know it would be incredibly expensive but I think it would be worth it.
I think the best punishment for updyke would be to simply drop him off at Toomer's Corner about 15 min after the end of the A-day game.
