    Troy players find a new way to ‘scoot’ around campus

    Published: July 30, 2008

    TROY — There’s a new trend now with Troy University football players.

    Chained to the fence by the Tine Davis Fieldhouse are a number of electric scooters — mostly ones with seats that are easily purchased at Wal-Mart or Sam’s Club.

    “It makes it a lot easier to get around campus,” quarterback Tanner Jones said. “It makes a five-minute walk about a minute.”

    Nonetheless, there came a point in time I lost my ability to be an Alabama fan.That was in August of 2001 - the year my school TroyStateUniversity, became a Division I-A football program and direct rival to Alabama and Auburn. At that point, I chose to draw a permanent line.

    We can't pay our coaches more money, but we can afford scooters for the players. Genius!

    Did you read anything in the article that said that these were being paid for by the University.. That would be an extra benefit and definitely against NCAA policies. These kids are buying them themselves. I think it is pretty bright. You don't have to worry about parking issues and gas... Wow.. gas is definitely a saver on these things..

    Yeah, I took it that one guy got one, and several of them liked it. It even said they drove to Dothan to get them.

    Looks like the Murfreesboro model to me. You should know that having been up in those parts.

    Who knows, if Troy keeps producing top-notch pro talent like Umenyiora, Ware, McKelvin and Martin maybe it will be Southern Cal that is eventually known as "The Other" Trojans...
