Recommended Posts

What does a friggin' Star Wars character have to do with the Ole Miss? :blink:

This is too funny. Star Wars? Really?

So are the Rebels thinking of changing their name as well?

Can we nominate Foghorn Leghorn while we're at it? He'd be 10x the mascot Ackbar would be, and would have some local flavor to him: "Ah say, ah say...pay attention while I'm talkin', son." :D

Maybe this whole thing is a trap. :P

They don't have to. Since Ackbar was the supreme commander of the Rebel Alliance, it works perfectly.

Yea, for those that can't get enough of Star Wars, yes.

I was a big Admiral Ackbar fan as a kid, I went out at Halloween when I was around 8 as Ackbar and had an Admiral Ackbar hat.

A quick and crappy mock-up:

Edit: Makes me wonder too if I should try and get the ball rolling on making this guy our mascot:

Just tweak his last name and it's perfect!

Serious question:

Do any of you think that ole miss should get rid of the 'Rebels' nickname altogether and start over? How can you be called the 'Rebels' and it mean anything other than Colonel and the Confederacy?

If they went with that helmet, I would send my kids there for college on principle alone.

New helmets?

F-ing hilarious.

the one on the left is most appropriate due to the nickname. Though I think the Storm Trooper helmet is golden.

Gotta love the rebels helmet! The Storm Trooper helmet doesn't transition well to a football shell very well at all; looks like there is a giant mouth on it or something.
