One of the most beloved and environmentally questionable traditions in college football involves Auburn fans congregating at Toomer's Corner to wrap trees with toilet paper following a big win. With Auburn set to travel to Pasadena to play against Florida State for the BCS national championship,, a fan site dedicated to Auburn athletics, pondered how they would go about their potential victory celebration.

But before that thought could settle, the Rose Bowl took to its official Twitter account to respond with a resounding nuh-uh.

Solid attempt by the Rose Bowl to prevent what's considered to be petty vandalism in most parts of the United States, but I predict that if Auburn is victorious on January 6, to paraphrase Auburn announcer Ron Bramblett's remarkable "Kick Six" call, "They're not going to keep'em from wrapping palm trees tonight!"
