    Default Hope It's Not Hard To Change A Username

    Changing Ole Miss' mascot has come up a couple times (once when I was there and it got voted down by a large majority), now administration has forced the students into either changing it, or not having one. Well the vote has been cast and the top vote getter has been announced.

    Why in the fuck do they want to change the mascot? Just curious. Out.

    Believe it or not, they want to get away from the "Old South" stigma. There have been many changes, and most have went without much of a fight IMO. The latest (just last year) was the band could no longer play "From Dixie with Love" which is complete bullshit IMO (I'm sure Elvis rolled in his grave on that one). The most notable change (made national news) was banning the Confederate flag from inside the stadium and arena during games, I think it officially took effect in '97.

    Changing the mascot has come up a few times, went to a vote when I was there and Colonel Reb won in a huge majority. A liberal arts group on campus threw a fit this year to bring it up again, saying it promotes racial stereotypes.

    Strange thing is, and not many people know, is that Colonel Reb is actually based on a black man that frequented the UM games back in the 20s and 30s.

    The part that really irks me is the school still keeps the rights to Colonel Reb, he's not good enough to be on the sideline, but he's good enough to put on a bumper sticker, notebook, folder, figurine, etc. to sell.
