The same day that Auburn University reached its first Final Four, the University filed a trademark for “Draining Threes and Rolling Trees”. The trademark application indicated that the University is planning to launch a clothing line featuring the slogan.
The Auburn Plainsman and AL.com quoted Josh Gerben discussing the trademark filings and history of “rolling trees” at Toomer’s Corner on the Auburn University campus.
