With Adm. Ackbar officially nixed, Ole Miss turns to three mascot 'options'

Those ESPN commercials we have seen Ole Miss Rebel Land Shark.png

Second, we have The Rebel Black Bear. The selection committee’s reasoning forincluding the Black Bear stated that “[it] can be fierce and intimidating, but would also appeal tochildren.”

Lastly, we have Hotty Toddy, which I’m still trying to understand myself.

So, where do you stand? If you do not have a preference, I don’t blame you. Ithink they should have stuck with Admiral Ackbar.

    These are all horrible ideas, but the Bear is the most sensible for a variety of reasons. Bears, like tailgating Ole Miss students, mark their territory by defecating or urinating in the immediate area. Bears smell bad, and hibernate in the fall and winter, much like the Ole Miss football program.
    The particular bear that they are using looks like it was taken from a 3 Stooges episode.
    Hotty Toddy is taken from one of the world’s worst fight songs. Humans are not good mascots.

    Please, Dear God. Let it be Hotty Toddy for sheer comedic value. -LSU Fans everywhere.

    Personally, I don’t think they should cave to PC liberals and keep the guy they have. Otherwise, change your name from Rebels and from Ole Miss. Become the Mississippi Land Sharks or Mississippi Black Bears. Or be like every other team in the SEC and copy someone else’s name (2 Bulldogs and 2 Tigers already). They could be the Mississippi Wildcats.

    They should go with ackbar after these terrible choices.

    They should call themselves the Rebels and hire a Robert E. Lee impersonator to be the mascot.

    If Disney allows Oregon to use Donald Duck, would Lucas deny Ole Miss? Ackbar is infinitely better than the offerings.

    Pathetic. Simply pathetic. This is what you get with pure groupthink: junk.

    Bring back the ol’ Colonel…but this time he gets a make-over.His face could be any color of the rainbow,except white.

    The Ackbar thing was for real. There really was a group of students trying to get the Admiral installed as the mascot.

    Ackbar would be awesome.

    They are all garbage. How bout your mascot being a southern gentleman named COLONEL REB!!!!!!

    I hope this is a joke.

    LSU has the tiger next to visitor’s locker room. It would only make sense to have a tank with a Great White for Ole Miss opponents.
    OR
    Do an SEC version of Ralphie and have a Black Bear charge the field to bring the team out/effectively scare the crap out of whoever’s playing Ole Miss.

    How about all the colors of the rainbow? The “Rainbow Rebel” sounds less gay than “Hotty Toddy”.
