PAWWWLLL, that’s not even enough to pay for the pinestraw!

Harvey Updyke has paid a whopping $99 of the $796,731.98 he owes in restitution to Auburn.

Maybe Finebaum could sponsor a fundraiser.

    When I think of Updyke I think of some poor chump living in a double-wide and driving a 25 year old truck. (I don’t feel this way about ALL Bama fans, fwiw)

    Does he really have enough income or assets that the state of Alabama thought he could afford a fine like that? Seems like they might as well had just not done anything because you know he isn’t going to (or can’t) pay it.

    I found footage of Harvey Updyke filling out a $99 check payable to Auburn University. One minute mark in this video…


  3. Agreed. Maybe Pawwlll can look down under that mass of fan mouth-breathers he used to prop himself up into the national spotlight and toss a few twenties.

    Seriously, they have a SEGMENT on the SEC Network where they play clips from his call in shows, and ESPN acts as if this the the pulse of the SEC fan base. Unbelievable.

    Updyke should have to spend the rest of his life cleaning urinals and toilets at Jordan-Hare Stadium, all the while listening to the 2010 “Cam Comeback” and the 2013 Davis “Kick Six” from the stadium loudspeakers. Take away all his Wal-Mart purchased bammer gear and give it to Goodwill Industries, and have him wear a Tennessee orange jumpsuit for the rest of his life until his financial obligation is done, or he dies, whichever comes first. He is SCUM, and should be treated as such.

    Nearly $800,000 bucks for some old oak trees? Damn. Were they solid gold oaks? What the hell??

      And the folks who loved them most threw toilet paper all over them!

      Here’s a solution – updyke can stand on toomer’s corner and let aubie fans TP him every saturday night.

    1.2 to 2.0 million for the new trees and bench and entrance. You know if they thought so much about that tradition they would have taken better care of them.

      And the paper burned, the trees did not. As for the posts about cost, that is what happens when Spike 80DF is used, it contaminates much of the surrounding soil, which then has to be removed. A very costly process, especially since Auburn tried to save the original trees.

        That looks pretty hot. I’d hate to be wrapped in toilet paper and set on fire. It’s gotta sting No? Hosing trees down to remove the TP wasn’t healthy for them either.
