Rebels without a cause

Ole Miss has dumped its black bear mascot… for this.

Obviously, none of the student body was around when this was a thing (yes, dammit, I’m old), but what I’m really excited for are the possibilities the next time Ole Miss and Florida face off.

Anything that takes your mind off Hugh Freeze, I guess.

    I’m old enough to remember that! It’s been a while since I’ve seen it.. I’m almost embarrassed for Ole Miss. Almost.

    Admiral Ackbar is a better choice than the bear or the shark.

  6. I thought this meant that their new mascot is the three stooges, since the arm gesture is essentially the iconic ‘eye poke block’.

    Life is full of disappointments. 😦

    On the bright side, Katy Perry’s left shark will now find gainful employment, with less choreography requirements.

    Maybe they can ask UNLV for advice on how to mesh rebels with sharks since UNLV did it, you know, 30 years ago.

    Too bad for Ole Miss that Jerry Tarkanian passed away a couple years back.

    They probably paid some PR agency $2,000,000 to come up with this award winning idea. And, I really like all the post above.

  12. I remember the land shark bit also. I never thought it was funny, even when drunk. That makes the mascot thing even more stupid.
