"Bob the Tiger" is back. But this time, he's ready. Two years ago, during the Homecoming football game against Princeton, a group of 30 rabid Quaker fans rushed onto Franklin Field at halftime and pummeled the Princeton Tiger mascot, stealing his fuzzy head, cutting his face and brusing several ribs. While the Tiger from two years ago retired after the beating, his replacement is ready for anything and is accepting the many risks and responsibilities of his uniform. "You always have to be on your guard when you're in the suit. You can't see at all," said Princeton Sophomore Rob Dyer. "The little kids are the the nastiest." He said that although a lot of people have asked him questions about the matchup, given the sordid reputation of Quaker fans at home against their arch-rival, he dismissed it as "hype." "My roommate has a gun, but I'll let him keep it," Dyer said. "I've got claws, but they don't do much good." Dyer said that "the only violence on the field will the Quakers getting crushed."
