    Admiral Ackbar could become a college mascot! : Admiral Ackbar as Ole Miss Mascot? Star Wars Character Could Replace Colonel Reb - AOL News

    Ole Miss University is replacing its long time mascot Colonel Reb as it it could be considered Racist and the students of the school gained the right to choose and one of the front runners is another rebel, but of a higher rank! Admiral Ackbar! :lol 

    not sure how the potential legal issues might work out with it, but its at least lol worthy!

    I seen that from another forum. Thats pretty interesting though that they would chose such a character but I know Lucas I doubt will let it happen.

    My thoughts as well, if was just pictures in the various arenas and stadiums id think he would not have a problem but the merchandising cash makes it tricky!

    Yep it does grimlock1972. I don't think it would matter to have it posted a few places but IF it got word back to Lucas licensing I would think they would seriously run into problems with merchandizing it.

    I never considered Colonel Reb to be racist image. I considered it a part of Southern Culture.

    I once gave my mother's step dad a Ole Miss cap with Colonel Reb on it and he was from Mississippi. When he died, my grandmother gave the cap back to me.

    On a side note, in elementary school our mascot was a pirate parrot.

    He was a green parrot, who's chosen profession was that of a high seas pirate.

    I always thought that was kinda bizarre.

    Actually Lucas ain't that bad. He let's a lot of the fan movies remain in Youtube and celebrates creative playing with Star Wars Universe in different ways. Especially if it's education-related.

    We'll last longer than we will against that mascot. Maybe we'll take a few of them with us."
