Political correctness sucks.
Long live The Rebel!
They oughtta be beat for wimping out.
anyone remember the Syracuse Orangemen ? or ST Johns Redmen
now its just the orange , and red storm
just wait til it hits Florida State , man thats gonna be a riot in the streets . its coming . the Seminole name will fall .
They're not going to be called the bears, they will still be the Rebels.
Yes they did wimp out
Political correctness can go take a bear dump and not use charman TP.
I can see it now rolls of TP being thrown onto the field.
I don't watch/play/understand/care about football, but I am from Mississippi, and this just steams me.
What's the point? Political correctness? THEY'RE IN MISSISSIPPI!
This was one of the few mascots that wasn't used by fans in ways that annoy the ever-loving stew out of me. Heck, MSU's mascot was used with--dare I say it--dignity. Now what? A bear? I'd be less annoyed if it seemed like they'd put some effort into finding something interesting and appealing. If you're going to go with something that, well, uninteresting, why don't you change the team colors to beige and gray while you're at it?
Based on what I know about the paradigm of the school, UC Santa Cruz chose the Banana Slug as their mascot to extol PC correctness.
atleast its not the Nanapuss
Give it a few years and they'll drop that also.
I graduated From Nathan Bedford Forrest High.
Instead of making a big change, they dropped the colonel mascot,
actually chiseled him out of the tile gym, and dropped one "R" in the name.
Now it's just FOREST HIGH.
PC is probably the worst fad or whatever in the last two decades.
It's destroying our wonderful culture, and trying to make us all happy commies in black Tunics marching to the same music.
I feel bad for Mississippi.
It makes me want to collect their mascot memorabilia to keep it alive.
The mascot is really a sun bear.
And they don't even have a football team.
oh, that explains a lot.
Ole Miss Sun Bears!
Well the ole miss carebears got their asses handed to them tonight. The current PC craze going on in oxford is a slap to the face of every University Grey that died at Manassas.
Actually, it is a black bear, which can be found in MS.
Don't be so sure of that Ash.... FSU does have the backing of the Seminole tribe, and FSU gives scholarships to the Seminoles as well.
Several years ago some do-gooder group was trying to get FSU to change their name but the Chief of the Seminole Tribe stepped up and told them to STFU.
Yeah, PC sucks.
The University of Georgia band use to be called the
UGA Dixie Redcoat Marching Band, now it's just the
UGA Redcoat Marching band, wouldn't want to offend
anyone that has no knowledge of true history and can
be led to believe anything.
No playing of Dixie at Ole Miss games, no Rebel flags,
now no Colonel mascot.
Perhaps we can learn to cheer on Ole Miss like the folk's
in Chicago do their team. "Go Beers".
Oddly enough, "Colonel Reb" was actually modeled after a black gentleman that was highly revered at Ole Miss. Go figure.
I graduated from Ole Miss and they will never see a single red cent from me as an alumni. Their "name change" makes my damn blood boil.
I was born and raised there. My family still lives there. The unpublished news is that tons of people are mailing their diplomas back to the Chancellor's office with notes saying they will no longer support the university in any way.
