The tradition of rolling Toomer’s began in the 1960s when Toomer’s Drugstore had the only telegraph in the city. During away football games, Toomer’s employees were the first to know of an Auburn football win, via telegraph. To alert the town of the good news, the employees would throw the telegraph paper over the power lines. Telegraph paper was replaced by toilet paper during the 1972 “Punt, Bama, Punt” Iron Bowl when Auburn took on second-ranked Alabama. Terry Henley, an Auburn halfback, exclaimed in an interview prior to the game, “We’re going to beat the number two out of Alabama.” Following the iconic 17-16 Auburn win, Auburn fans grabbed any toilet paper rolls they could get their hands on and rushed to Toomer’s Corner to roll the oaks. These days, Auburn fans keep an extra “rolling” supply on hand during football season.

This is a drawing of one of the original Auburn oaks the last time it was rolled before being poisoned. Get a little piece of history to drink your morning coffee. It just might be good luck to drink from it during Auburn games. War Eagle!!
