T-Roy looks like they took a Michigan State head and spray painted the brush bristles on the top. Not saying that is bad or good but definitely unoriginal.

New T-Roy is definitely creepy. Not a good look at all.

When he came from under the curtain I wanted it to go back under it along with most of the student section. I hope someone steals it again so I don't have to see that giant pedophile looking stuffed animal walking around.

Is it so much work just to make a trojan costume and get a real person(s) to dress up and make it cool?

Wow. I can't believe it got worse. The best way to describe it comes from my wife. Her first words were "He looks ugly as sin."

He is so scary!!! I couldn't even look at him. On top of that, very boring too. He barely interacted with the crowd. Such a shame!

I think those eyes make him look so ugly. Real T-Roy had big pretty eyes.

My first thought was that it looked like he had encephalitis. Quickly followed by the thought that the (cash strapped) athletic department got ripped off whatever amount of money they paid for it!!!

SO MUCH for our expectations of something better. WHOEVER took the old outfit, PLEASE return it.

He's ugly and creepy looking. The worst part is the head yes, but even the body looks half-assed. It's nothing like the old T-Roy and the guy in it was so lethargic. I heard he couldn't see so that's why he didn't do much.

yeah, that really sucks. Why won't they go back to the design they used before the last one? that face was personable and friendly.

He had a handler (someone leading him) and still could not walk the endline without knocking down the pylons. When he CRAWLED up on the SOTS Drum Majors stand I had to look away thinking he was about to take a nose dive into the ground!!!

My guess is that the sight holes are misaligned, needs about $1,000 in mods. Still looks Gay to me

Looks gay? I thought homosexual was a prerequisite just to wear that thing...or is that just for our flag "guy"?

LAME LAME LAME.
Can someone PLEASE explain to me what was wrong with the OLD T-Roy? You know, the one that had the beard and all? This new style just sucks. And this newest one, holy sh!tballs batman, did we get ripped off or what.
Did we not have the old specs so that we co0uld just email them to the company?

Now the mascot looks as bad as our team.

USC shut it down, said it looked too much like their logo so we had to pull the plug.

Anyone know if the university put a fan poll/vote on the website? If not, maybe they should have.

I will only accept a real person on a horse!!! Anything else is junk. But, I liked the original T-Roy better than these pinky funky looking mascot clearance sale rejects.

My wife who has been around cheerleading all of her life says before the unvailing of T Roy.........." Where is that T Roy he was such a wussy mascot I am glad he is gone........said this at all the games so far.........and then POOF (should say PUFF) there is this whimpy wussy pink thing again......and then she says "It looks like it did before except maybe more wussy"

I am not saying she is an expert at mascots or that any of us are.......but we might as well get a sign with Wuss writen on it........At least WKU's blob looks like a blood donation cartoon or something.......and at this point we have one of the worst mascots and then he walks out to mid field with our captains and THAT WAS THE OMAN for a really bad day.......I hope too that he is stolen and never returns.........a girl in a skirt and heals looks more intimidating that that thing.

I don't see a big difference in the new one vs the stolen one? Am I missing something? I didn't care for the other one either, I liked the one we had in the 80's.

I blame the new T-roy for our loss Saturday....he looks lioke a really ugly cartoon character, and we played like a bunch of ugly cartoon characters..We should have played the game Saturday morning because that is when cartoons are supposed to be on.

The biggest difference is the head/face. This year's is so...wide & flat.

I don't think you have that quite right. He didn't look anything like their mascot or logo. Or someone greatly misled you.

As far as I'm concerned, T-Roy could wear a pink dress as long as we are winning football games. I think we have much more important issues to discuss.

Surf is clean and too fun with a SUP or a really longboard. Should be the same tomorrow. You have to come out and see for yourself.:thumb:

I don't think T-Roy looks all that bad, perfectly acceptable.

On the other hand I would much prefer a realistic tough looking guy dressed as a Trojan Warrior. He could either be Hector or even Paris. If he was Paris they could show him on a horse riding around with a Helen type character dressed in the colors of the opponent.

That might be going too far so have Hector, "horse tamer Hector" in full armor.

FSU doesn't dress up a cartoon "Injun Joe" They have an authentically dressed Chief Osceola. Probably the best pregame symbol/show with the flaming spear, in football.

I would offer my services as a mascot matching that description... but my wife tends to get jealous when the ladies dote on me, so I'd better not. Sorry everyone.
