The poster reads “Pick your poison” and depicts one of Toomer’s Oaks, the trees that were poisoned by Harvey Updike in 2010. Underneath the tree is the acronym “HYDR,” which stands for “Hell Yeah, Damn Right,” part of the famous Hotty Toddy cheer.
It’s a bit of trash talk to spice up this SEC West showdown that pits a surging No. 15 Tigers team against a Rebels squad seeking to put its 3-4 start in the past. The game kicks off at 7:15 p.m. ET today on the SEC Network.
