SEMO's mascot undergoes transformation

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO -- Change is inevitable. And fans of Southeast Missouri State University athletics are learning that. SEMO's popular mascot Rowdy has recently undergone a transformation.

Rowdy first came onto the scene in 2005 after the University changed the mascot from Indians to Redhawks. The fun loving bird has been a staple at games, celebrations and other events around Cape Girardeau.

In December he was injured during a series of videos called A Rowdy Christmas Story. He was hit with a t-shirt from the new t-shirt launching gun he received for Christmas. After weeks in rehab getting stronger, a bigger, badder Rowdy debuted at a SEMO basketball game recently.
