    Ole Miss has new mascot

    Rebel Black Bear. Seems like an odd choice.

    Rebel Black Bear is Mississippi's new mascot - ESPN

    Re: Ole Miss has new mascot

    That's pretty sweet, but Rebel Ackbar would have been better

    Well, this is the last time I ever want to hear "why is your mascot a cardinal when you are the Cyclones"

    Re: Ole Miss has new mascot

    Slightly off topic, but every time I hear or read about "The Grove", I always wonder why there isn't a name for the Iowa State tailgate. It's one of the best traditions ISU has and I think it really deserves a name.

    My standard answer is "the same reason Miami's mascot is an Ibis and they're the Hurricaines".

    This is something I could get behind. Sounds like a great idea. (Too bad "Cyclone Alley" is already taken & blemished)

    Kind of.

    Miami picked the ibis because when a hurricane comes around, it's the last animal to take shelter and the first to reappear once the hurricane leaves. So their mascot is based off of symbolism/legend associated with a hurricane.

    ISU picked the Cardinal because they realized having an anthropomorphic tornado would be pretty silly (though admittedly, if done right, could be cool). So they went to the school colors and chose to go with a Cardinal. Could have been worse. At least you guys didn't go the Stanford route and end up being associated with a horrendous mascot like the Stanford Tree...





    Anthropomorphic tornadoes and cyclones NOT done right...

    True, but Lucas wouldn't let Ole Miss have the rights. So they now have Admiral Ack-bear.

    A Bear? Horrible.

    On another note... ESPNU's College Town now has ISU on it! Oh!

    I agree, but what would it be? The Grove makes sense because it's in... well, a grove. But what would ours be?

    The Plains?
    The Drunken Wasteland?


    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State all the way.
    Let's go! To show them what the gang's all here for,
    Go! To show them how the Cyclones cheer.
    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,
    Fight! Iowa State, Fight! Fight!
