Big Ole Black Bear

So for those of you who don't know, over the past year Ole Miss has been battling (pun intended) to keep their tradition rich mascot, "Colonel Reb". The public was able to vote on what the new mascot will be. They narrowed the choices down to: Hotty Toddy, The Rebel Land Shark and The Rebel Black Bear. The Bear won with 62% of the votes. Not so fast though- petitions are flying trying to keep the Colonel on the field. But for now, Ole Miss will be represented by a big ole black bear. Maybe we will see him at Alabama's Homecoming  this weekend?
grrrr
And at least us Bama fans can rest easy, I mean what could possibly be inappropriate with an Elephant named "Big Al"?
