Hotty Toddy, Ackbar Almighty

March 8th, 2010 Comments off

It’s been quite well publicized that Admiral Ackbar is up for the role of mascot for the University of Mississippi, but it isn’t real news anymore until the Taiwanese go all CGI on the news (see, e.g., the Tiger Woods Accident and Spanking footage, as previously chronicled by this site).

My only advice to the good admiral is that this is a trap. The Ole Miss football team is the bottom of the barrel. They’ve got a “student”-athlete who can’t read (“He’s a good boy, he just can’t read“). They try to pretend they can compete in the West, but since Eli left they’ve been closer to Mississippi State than LSU and Bama. And you’ll be leading a fan base that had no problem for years with the idea of waving the Confederate Flag that represented to many African Americans a symbol of oppression and racism (regardless of the fact that it may have represented something different to those waving it).

UGA VII dies

Article on UGA VII’s Death.

Via rickankielsmustache: Not even I can make a joke about this.

There will be no live mascot at Georgia’s game on Saturday but a wreath will be placed on Uga VII’s doghouse on the north sideline.

No jokes can be made, but I’ll observe that Georgia fans might not shed too much of a tear in a very down year.

UGA VII’s record is only 16-7. Coming off UGA VI’s record 87–27, that’s pretty pedestrian. And yes, Georgia fans do credit the mascot.

Anyway, sad news. UGA is dead… Long live UGA.
