Next week Ole Miss students will have the chance to vote on changing their current Black Bear mascot
Beth Hall-USA TODAY Sports
Next week Ole Miss students will have the chance to vote on changing their current Black Bear mascot. Per The Clarion-Ledger...
quote:

Dion Kevin III, president of the Ole Miss Associated Student Body, said in a letter that students will be able to vote on the Landshark as the new mascot, which would replace the Black Bear mascot chosen in 2010.

“The Landshark as we know it today has its origins in football, but has since expanded to symbolize Ole Miss’s fight spirit and athletic prowess,” Kevin wrote. “On September 26th, we will all have the chance to leave a legacy of unity and excitement in a referendum vote in this year’s Fall Election.”
Any suggestions for a new mascot?

This is just laughable at this point. Landshark? That's like LSU changing their mascot to the Chinese Bandits. It's ridiculous.

Ackbar is part of Disney now and no way they let Rebs get their hands on the franchise for free.

Political Correctness ran amuck the first go round. I couldn't believe they changed to the Black bear......I mean it's BLACK! I guess poking a finger in the eye of perceived racism. What did a bear have to do with the school anyway when you downshifted from Rebel? I don't know what the answer is for a new mascot but Landshark is just silly. That's up there with the Akron Zips.... There's not a politically correct answer to satisfy every special interest group. The whole thing is just crazy. Maybe the Ole Miss Snowflakes?

Mr. Hangover, everything you stated is applicable to just about every Southeastern college. Unless your a hipster who goes to Ga St.

The Ole Miss Hookers has a nice ring to it.

I think they should drape the most Mississippi looking redneck they can find in a rebel flag and have him whistle Dixie every time they score. You have to be true to yourself.
