Submit your question to Big Red!

Question
"Where do you come up with your stunts for the games like bowling with the fans? Do you take suggestions?" -- questions submitted by Debbie Raymer (Beaver Dam, Ky.)

Big Red:
"I'm always trying to think of new and different stunts to get a reaction from the crowd. I LOVE to get the crowd into the game. I bet you didn't know Big Red goes to summer camp. In the summer, I go to mascot camp to learn new stunts and practice being Big Red.

I am always open for suggestions. I bet our fans have some great ideas! That is part of the reason we started "Ask Big Red" - so the fans can let me know what they need from their mascot. Thanks for your question!"

Question
"Big Red, what is your favorite stunt to do?" -- question submitted by Matt Krantz (Bowling Green, Ky.)

Big Red:
"Crowd surfing would be my favorite and most dangerous! I'll do anything to get the crowd involved. If you have a stunt that you would like to see Big Red perform, just let me know."

Question
"Does it really work when you put a hex on the other team?" -- question submitted by Sylvia Kirkwood (Shelbyville, Ky.)

Big Red:
"Thanks for your question. I don't want to take credit for all of our success, but when I break out the Big Red hex . . . watch out! I love to mess with our opponents. It's all psychological."
