Ole Miss mascot suggestions

With word that a Star Wars character is being considered as the new mascot at Ole Miss, it's clear someone has broken out the hallucinogens in Oxford.

In the spirit of chasing a Vicodin with a shot of vodka, here are my top 10 candidates to replace Colonel Reb:

10. Colonel Sanders

9. Sgt. Hulka

8. Pvt. Gomer Pyle

7. General George S. Patton

6. John Grisham

5. Hannah Storm, but only in her Catholic school girl outfit

4. Tony Kornheiser (at the rate he's going, he could use the gig)

3. Conan O'Brien (ditto)

2. Billy Brewer

1. Dulymus Jenod "Deuce" McAllister

What I don't get is that 7 of the SEC teams have really clever cool names, and four have terrible names (Wildcats, Bulldogs and Tigers, wow really original).  So depending on how cool you think Ole Miss is, you can either name it something original, or just name it the Bobcats or Eagles, or hell why not add another Gators.  The Ole Miss Gators sounds good.

How 'bout Possums!  They're common throughout the state of Mississippi.  They've even been known to reside in The Grove.  Best of all, they're an accurate caricature of Ole Miss atheletic teams . . . they play dead on defense and get killed on the road.  GO STATE!

John Grisham...Get out of here Dodd. He is a Bulldog. He went to Mississippi State for undergrad and Ole Miss for law school. Everyone knows your team is where you went to undergrad.

If you flip the syllables of Ackbar you have Barack!  How politically correct or intense or focused or at least current could you be?

Nothing wrong with the name "Rebels" taken out of the obvious context from whence they came, and I applaud Ole Miss for trying to HIT one into centerfield.  Have always liked the name, "Reivers," from Faulkner for a possible redo for the Oxford footballers.
