Notre Dame




This has always been a bizarre case for me. The guy spent, what, 80 days in the slammer? Completely justified. $800,000 in fines though, for trees? I get the trees were significant, but that seemed rather excessive. He only paid something like $7000 of that amount, and the replacements were set on fire a few years later by someone else. The whole thing was a bit much. Don't get me wrong, I'm indifferent to both Alabama and Auburn football, but at the end of the day....they were just trees. 80 days and $7000 felt like more than enough punishment.

Saw an article where "The combined cost to try to save the original trees, the planting of the new trees and improvements to Toomer's Corner totaled around $900,000..."

Looks like Harvey got off 100k light.

The whole thing just illustrates why we should drop Alabama from the U.S. Time to make America Somoa a state. Maybe we could instill some sort of pro/relegation system.

Who pays a million dollars to replant a couple trees? People in Alabama, that's who.

I think a lot of the money went into trying to decontaminate the ground around the trees, which Updyke had poisoned. He was a nut. Had no meaningful connection to Bama, but was a rabid fan from TX who took offense to some Auburn fans committing some minor vandalism on the Bama campus. He reminded me of someone who'd fried half his brain cells on alcohol or drugs and just wasn't all there. One of the more bizarre incidents in the history of sports rivalries.
