Weren't we supposed to see him at the games this year?  Maybee he'll make his debut for the WVU game.

I think there are more than one reason why we haven't seen him yet. I have heard everything from the TSA wont let him on the field (no Tazer jokes please) to the Bull Died or can't be trained

I was wondering about this as well.

Maybe Greg or Brett can look into it

I work in the agriculture industry, and I got a little inside information from someone who works for the feed company who was supplying the feed...

Basically, they raised a steer from a calf, but didnt train it. By training it, I mean making it people oriented/friendly. They fed it and fed it without interaction, and now it is too old to be trained. Last I heard, they were going to see that steer and start over, with proper training.

DUH!!!

How can these guys NOT know it has to be trained and interacted with??

That's a shame, because he's a great looking bull!

I think folks would like to see the one trained or not--- somewhere on the grounds for pictures and for the kiddies to look at. Might be pricey hauling in a bull all the time though.

I just can't imagine that we can do something like Colorado does -- running a Bull out seems a little beyond reasonable-- even with training.

They have Ralphie in a pen before the game... then they run him right into a trailer.  They could do the same with Rocky II.

There's really no need to have him on the sidelines during the game.

Good,... I don't want him to be trained. This way after The BULLS destroy wvu on the field, we can set him free to stomp the rest of the team into the ground. 

A snarling 2000 lb Bull in a whipped up rage...  I LOVE IT.
