While the Auburn Tigers' basketball team and students are celebrating their first Final Four appearance in school history, the university still found a way to make one of the school's most iconic traditions, rolling the the oak trees at Toomer's Corner, less appealing.

Apparently it isn't enough to vandalize your own campus whenever your school wins a big game. Now Auburn wants to be the only one with legally-licensed apparel that reads, "Draining Threes and Rolling Trees," after filing for the trademark to the phrase.

If anything, at least it's accurate. As the Tigers are averaging the third-most made 3-pointers per game (11.5) in the NCAA this season, and their student body is almost certainly the only one rolling its own school's trees for a good reason.

Even with as 'hip' as this phrase reads, I don't think there will be much competition for this trademark.

New customers will get 40/1 on any of the Final Four teams to win the tournament.
