This, obviously, is a trap.
Don't insult the Admiral.
They shouldn't have released this information without a picture or drawing of the new mascot.
Yeah that's poor PR...here it is if you missed it:
Alright, this brings the level of confusion concerning SEC teams and their mascots to a whole new level. Auburn is the Tigers, but their chant is War Eagle, and they have an eagle that flies on gameday...but also a Tiger named Aubie. LSU is also the Tigers. Two division foes with the same mascot? Mississippi State and Georgia also share a common mascot. Alabama is the Crimson Tide...represented by an Elephant. Tennessee are the Volunteers...represented by a houndog. And now we have the Ole Miss Rebels...represented by a bear.
One of these days, someone is going to have to explain to these people what a mascot is. As ridiculous as a Buckeye is for a mascot...at least Brutus is literally a buckeye nut, even if it's a wierd nightmarish monster buckeye head with a human body. Same can be said for the Purdue Boilermakers...at least their mascot Purdue Pete is literally a guy with a hammer who makes boilers for steam engines. I guess I'll give extra credit to Georgia, seeing as how they keep both a live bulldog mascot and a guy in a suit that is also a bulldog.
Ah yes, that reminds me of the great Black Bear Rebellion. You guys remember that, don't you?
Well, at least black bears have never owned slaves.
