  Beau Needs Your Help

Fightin' Weevils mascot "Beau Weevil" needs your help.

During the fourth quarter of Saturday's game, junior marketing major Jeanine Pendergast, who gives life to our beloved mascot, had briefly removed her head to take a drink. "I had ordered a Vanilla Coke from Tommy [Houderplow, senior, Radio Playing major], who was working the stand," she said.

"I put my head down, and when I turned back around, it was gone."

No one in the area had witnessed anything, including Mrs. Renelle Todd, visiting her son Wilmont at Weevil State. "I didn't see anything at all," Mrs. Todd said.

Campus Police are investigating the disappearance as a theft. Chief Tommy "T.R." Randolph says that he has at least two suspects he has been watching very closely, although he declined to elaborate. "We see this as an attempt by others, who I will not say anything about, to maybe make some kind of trouble or something, but nothing I can really say too much about," said Chief Randolph. Asked if anyone has ever made any sort of threat against the mascot, Chief Randolph declined to comment, "I can't tell you anything like that." He did not discount the possibility of prosecuting the alleged suspects under the USA Patriot Act.

The head, a fourteen pound fiberglass replica of a boll weevil head with a three foot long proboscis, has Miss Pendergast's name written in blue Sharpie marker on the back inside surface, as well as her telephone number and her dorm room number. She requests that if found, please do not call her or come by her dorm, but turn it back in to the Spirit Room.
