I'm guessing that with sales records or accessibility and phone records to Feinberg's radio show this moron will be caught. Plus if he brags on the radio he's gonna brag to buddies too.

Now proving that it was him may be tough, and charges may be minor, but his life will become hell nonetheless. If nothing else I hope the press dogs his ass for months

Actually, the concentrations determined by the lab analysis of the soil -- and the fact that the chemical is regulated by the USDA & EPA -- the criminal charges against the guy could be significant. It was enough quantity to cause concern for the entire city block - as it will travel in a plume in the soil. I see some willful pollution charges coming, as well as the vandalism to the protected 130 year old Live Oaks. He WILL have bragged to his "friends". A reward will be offered and he will be outed by one of those "friends". Someone will recognize his voice from the radio clip on the web. In addition, the chances of there being multiple surveillance cameras in the area business (there is a Toomer's Corner Webcam that I know of) -- I expect that video evidence will surface soon showing this individual applying the chemical to the site.

This all reminds me of the earlier discussion regarding the difference between a real alumni fan -- and "dirt road alumni fans"... I'd be willing to bet a nice dinner that this Bama fan is of the "dirt road alumni" variety -- having never been a student at Bama.

I agree. I can not tell you of one Bama graduate that I have had a problem with. It seems that the worst fans have no ties to the school. That is true for all schools.

This is very disheartening. It's almost unbelievable that someone would do such a thing, but nothing seems to be beyond anyone these days. I understand the rivalry but for someone to stoop as low as this is just beyond me. It's just a tree and not worth someones life so I hope no one gets to stupid. But I do hope his cell mate makes him sing/whistle War Eagle, Glory to Ole Auburn, Go Tigers, The Horse, and Tiger Rag while he's checkin his prostate. Between the phone records and the HD camera they have running 24/7 pointed directly at the trees I'm sure they will get the guy who did it. There are plenty of Auburn fans who would be more than willing to sit in front of that tv screen watching for the guy who did it. They probably already have him in custody or at least know where he is.

Like one of the guys at work said... Plant a new tree to go along with the new Championship!

WAR EAGLE!

I heard the original call by the guy on Finbaum. The guy said he saw auburn fans putting a cam Newton Jersey on Coach Bryant's statue and taking pictures. He said he lives in Dadeville. Finbaum said the feds were in the studio today taking statements. This is not an Alabama / Auburn thing this is idiot acting on his own nothing to do with Alabama fans. If you're an Alabama fan and are ok with this you're an idiot too. Auburn has a beautiful campus and as Alabamans we should be proud to have such a beautiful place even if we don't like the football team.

ANY rival team has the potential to have MORON fan like this. IT'S NOT an au vs 'bama thing though it will grow into it.

GO GATORS!!!, but I'd never spike a tree or trees if somebody punk'd Florida.

By the way... I think the SCREW AU posts are in jest. I don't think that they realize that au fans and fans of college football in general see this is as what is worst about college football. For 'bama fans it's a chance to laugh, but then discover that there is real harm. And one of their own is responsible. Then respect tradition again. EVERY team has tradition. To mock it is one thing, to try to destroy it another.

After all... it truly is, ONLY a game.

The trees in the pic I see when looking at the camera don't seem as big as I thought they would be..If they are 130 then I have a 400 in my backyard...shouldn't be hard to replace, use the wood to make toiler paper...

Ok lets get this straight auburn fans started with the bama with there field . Then when bama goes after there tree ,The auburn fans want to scream how its not right and its messed up . Well maybe auburn should learn that paybacks a bitch . Should they have killed the tree nope since that may lead to legal problems just like the field being tampered with could . how ever your fans or players started it know you want to cry and get bent out of shape when bama fan or players get you back . It reminds me of people that talk trash and start a fight get there ass beat then they wanna call the cops .you dish it out you better be able to get it back

According to the caller claiming responsibility -- he spiked the trees the weekend following the Iron Bowl. I don't think the Rye grass seed would have had time to germinate and grow to a significant level to be noticed at that point.

The photos of the grass (by the way -- it was not on the Bama football field itself) came later. Therefore, I think the tree assailant acted before the issue with the grass was known.

He will be caught, most likley from video evidence. I believe that it will be determined that he is, in fact, "dirt road alumni" and not a Bama graduate. Once he is known -- hopefully people will let the legal process work -- and not do something stupid to harm him or his household for "payback" as mentioned above...
