Back to the drawing board. Please.

The depictions of the finalists for the new Mississippi mascot are even lamer than I imagined.  Which is saying a lot.

I hope they haven’t spent too much money on those.  They probably could have picked up the rights to Izzy for a song.

    Wow, they do suck Akbar isn’t looking to bad now, is he?
    I’d have to go with the bear.

    Hotty Toddy?

    How did an old southern man give birth to a grey flaggot who likes to play dress-up and go to the YMCA?

    If it has come to this, it’s just as well that I am gettin’ out of the mascot business a week from Sattidy.

      Why does Hotty Toddy look like a beefcake? Will you have to be a beefcake to play the part, or will you just be some scrawny dude who wears fake muscles? Either way, Hotty Toddy is definitely the most awkward mascot of the three. The land shark is so dumb it’s funny.

    As bad as I feel right now about the state of UGA football, this actually makes me feel better. I sure hope this is some kind of joke. It seem obvious they have to go with the Black Bear. Land Shark? Hot Toddy? Wow. Houston Nutt has more influence in Oxford than I imagined.

    Wow. Hotty Toddy looks just like the Greendale College “Human” mascot from “Community”.

    Can we give a big “whoosh!” for not understanding the land shark? That’s Greendale’s real mascot: Mr. Chevy Chase. Tech could pick up the Killer Bees as mascots and Tennessee could slap some dog ears on Pat. It would be wonderful.

    Would they be called the Ole Miss Land Sharks? Or the Ole Miss Black Bears? Or would they still be called the Rebels and just have a different mascot?

    Oh, also.. how is ‘Black Bear’ not more racially offensive than ‘Colonel Rebel’? Just saying..
