This float was during the Mystic Stripers parade. A friend took this picture.

That is awesome! I meant to make it down for the Stripers parade. I hate that I missed it now.

I found an article on Al.com that had a couple more pictures:

apparently the theme was "Mascots of Southern Style". From doing a little research I found they did floats for AU, UA, TROY, USM, UT, ND (someone had a blowup doll on the float). I am sure they did a few more. I hate that I missed this parade, looked to be so much better than the couple I have been too so far!

Yeah, that is the best mascot I have seen! The University needs to take the T-Roy from the front of that float and use that as our mascot instead of the real cheesy one.

The parade itself built this float? Wow. A few years ago, Troy might have been left out. I would have thought Troy would have done it as a promotion. Did they also do a USA float? If not, that would be embarrassing to our new football competitior.

Yeah. Trojan figure looks really cool at the front of the float. Guys with masks on look scary...
