    They're not going to be called the bears, they will still be the Rebels.

    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.

    Idiots.

    It's everywhere.
    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.

    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. :rofl:

    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".

    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 The unpublished news is that tons of people are mailing their diplomas back to the Chancellor's office with notes saying they will no longer support the university in any way.
