Ole Miss's new mascot
After months of trying to replace the controversial Colonel Reb, Ole Miss chose the black bear as its new mascot. The Rebel Black Bear was the winning choice from the other two choices. Land Shark and Hotty Toddy were the two choices. The university needed a new mascot to replace Colonel Reb, a mascot with Confederate ties that looked a Southern plantation owner. There were thousands of mascot choices suggested by students including Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars. Then, the university's mascot search committee reduced the choices to eleven and then five. It made the choice to three. Now the Rebel Black Bear was the winner. Sports fans or not, talk about the new mascot. http://mascot.olemiss.edu is the site on the Ole Miss mascot.
