This was just too fun to not post. Ole Miss is getting rid of Colonel Reb to distance themselves from the Old South mascot and I am sure that it has absolutely nothing with the Klan showing up in protest at Ole Miss in full gear before being escorted away by the authorities. Their reason was to protest the school's the decision to not have the band play "From Dixie With Love."
The serious stuff is now out of the way and here comes the fan favorite for the new Ole Miss mascot. The leading fan candidate is none other then Admiral Ackbar. Better know for his 'It's a Trap!' This movement has its own web page, twitter, and Facebook account.
I instantly followed the Admiral on twitter and facebook, and so should you.
