Admiral Ackbar – the Supreme Commander of the Rebel Alliance fleet – is one step closer to becoming the new on-field mascot for the University of Mississippi. Ole Miss is in the middle of a movement to replace their old mascot – Colonel Reb – after the school decided they wanted to update their image. Tuesday, the students voted in favor of crowning a new mascot to represent Rebel Nation … and the favorite so far is none other than the most famous Mon Calamari in the entire universe. Several pro-Ackbar websites have recently emerged – making the Admiral the heavy favorite. The University tells us the decision on the mascot is entirely in the hands of the student mascot committee. The University will hold a vote in the near future – we'll keep you updated.
