Default Sir Big Spur's New Ride

I'm happy to hear Sir Big Spur is getting an upgrade. His current vehicle is trashy looking.

They should put him in one of those Amazon Drones and have him buzz the opposing team during timeouts.

The thing has "Beat" stickers all over it and they put foam bats on it for baseball games. His stand is made of busted PVC pipe and he rolls around on a Power Wheel.

Have you seen what other mascots are rolling in? Tom, the Tiger at Memphis (f-ing Memphis mind you) has a sound proof trailer. UGA has an air conditioned dog house. Mike the Tiger at LSU has a multimillion dollar habitat. I could go on and on.

When it comes to things that represent our university we should do things right, or not at all. Obviously, these students think the same way.

That project is part of my ELCT 403/404 class. That was definitely the most popular project that we could choose from. They originally wanted to make it tank-style, but I think they've moved away from that for now. They haven't built the frame yet, but they have all of their steering code working correctly

Send best wishes from me out to all of those students working on this project. I'm happy to donate to the nursing students as well.

With all due respect, those that you mention are the "official" mascots of the schools. Sir Big Spur has not been named such, as yet. Therein lies the difference. Ron and Mary built that themselves and dedicate a great deal of their time making sure SBS is at each and every event possible. They are truly dedicated.

However, this is a step in the right direction. It wasn't that long ago that our administration seriously considered the complaints of a booster about Sir Big Spur (at the time Rooster Lou) at baseball games, and thought about banning him. Thankfully we now have an administration in place that understands Sir Big Spur's importance, and I am sure that they are 100% in support of these students and their plan.

I didn't think Sir Big Spur was officially affiliated with the University? At least not until a few years back. I thought he just belonged to a guy who owned a rooster and wanted to start bringing him to games and eventually the University kind of adopted him.

I could be wrong, but that probably explains the difference in funding. I don't think his owner gets any money from USC. I don't see a page on our athletic site about Sir Big Spur. Uga at UGA and Mike the Tiger have their own pages.

Right... my understanding is SBS is just a rooster that lives in the outskirts of Aiken and his owners worked out a way to bring him to games. He's not on the level yet of a UGA or LSU's tiger yet.

I'm a fan of SBS and think it's cool he's getting an upgrade. I just found use of the adjective "trashy" funny when describing his current ride... like he's riding around on something with Maury ads on it.

Does SBS have a tramp stamp?

If you don't know the answer to this it is clear you don't care. Some "fan" of SBS you are....


And the answer is yes... he does have a tramp stamp.
