The Fox television station in Birmingham announced at 9 pm that T Roy is Missing! Evidently the mascot outfit was taken from a private residence off campus after being used at an event.

I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about this ?

That costume looks to be about $3.50.

Can we leave it missing? We have one of the ugliest mascots in the NCAA. The former big-head Trojan was better looking. Maybe we just need a real human in a Trojan costume similar to the Trojan Warrior Princess of a few years back. She rocked!

Oh, and considering there are already "wanted posters" for the costume and they are looking for information on facebook versus the real cops, I am starting to question this whole business. Is this a PR stunt?

No, WSFA in Montgomery ran the story, and apparently it went all the way to Birmingham. The reason, I'm guessing, they're doing it on facebook is because they can reach more of the people who this affects, aka students. How many 18-22 year olds actually watch the 10 o'clock news every night?

I assure you that the real police have been informed.

I hate this mascot costume clearance sale looking version of T-Roy. I would hope that when they buy a new costume they get one that looks better than the current one.

Is $5,500 a clearance sale??? Your point is well taken, Disc! For that much, we should have a mascot that is fun AND formidable. Not a Mickey Mouse. I've never been a fan of this one either.

I tried to steel the Jax St chicken head once but the plot was foiled:( Perhaps the Jim Beam had something to do with it????

Now I like the idea of a real Trojan Warrior but this guy just don't get it done and neither did the "Trojan Princess" but I do like a Trojan Warrior dress to the hilt on a horse. maybe we could get the guys who couldn't stay eligible to follow the horse and......:wave:

Nooooo. Tell me it ain't so! It was just when the Trojan Princess came charging out on that horse she was so petite and cute you wanted to hug her not go to war with her! I loved the horse with a guy about 6'6", 250 lbs sitting atop, dressed in Hollywood's best though. Just saying. Anyway where is John Wayne when you need him? :)

Maybe it will stay missing and we will get a decent looking non-faded mascot. Also, maybe someone will steal the jet and paint the endzones while they are at it. A guy can dream right?

UPDATE!

On Thursday night during the Montgomery Area Alumni event Steve Dennis did acknowledge that he has been in contact with T Roy ! "Evidently T Roy is at the beach". Steve stated that it was his understanding that T Roy is working on his tan and has been workng out. He is expected to join all of us at the Clemson game.

Sounds like T-roy is going to have a "NEW LOOK" at Clemson because his "OLD LOOK" never came back. :bounce012:

Does this mean we're going to dust off the old T-Roy, fire up the old go-cart, and pull out the old TSU cheer cards?

Paint the end zone, fine. The jet stays.

God, I hope not. That costume was worn out, ratty, and looked just as cheap. Familiar isn't always better.

Any updates on finding T-Roy? Are we even going to have a mascot this year? Wonder if someone still have the Trojan Warrior Princess' phone number.

Never a better time to take a page from FSU's intro. and put a real Trojan on a beautiful horse (or in a chariot) dressed to a Hollywood tee. Have the SOTS play those trumpets and have him come out of the helmet leading the team. Some sponsor should be willing to finance it. It would be as much an impact as Chief Oseola is at FSU and they were selected as the #1 pregame program. Go for it! Go Trojans!!

Is it possible that this could have been a publicity stunt? I hate to see T-Roy go this way. Maybe someone was trying to take T-Roy "out of his misery". We are gonna miss the guy..................

I WOULD like to see the SOTS have herald trumpets for Pre Game... but they're expensive and tear up easily, but they would look awesome for the opening sequence of the pre-game

Yeah, herald trumpets are a lot of money for the use SOTS would get out of them. What I would like to see are military-type banners and standard poles that SOTS could have for the "T" formation at pre-game. I know, I know that's more Roman, but it would still be a nice visual effect.

Troy University has purchased a new T-Roy and will be debuting him soon. You heard it hear first folks.

My guess is that they probably just bought the same costume again.

I thought last years T-Roy was a new costume... I think it'd be cool to have male/female mascots kinda like Florida with their gators. Helen and Hector! :thumb:

Maybe have one "T" and the other one "Roy".............Don't see it happening. Heck, we can even keep up with one mascot......much less two.

I wasn't referring to Florida when I mentioned Helen and Hector. They would be mascots for Troy. I hope everyone knows who they are... :eek:

I have a buddy that works with me that has three kids that graduated from Jax St. He has been asking me for some time now if we had found T-Roy. This morning he was telling me that he had heard a rumor that T-Roy was at an Ater Tater Pie hall in North Alabama.:bounce012:
