It's certainly way after the fact, but I feel a need to weigh in on the Ole Miss mascot controversy. Back a couple of years ago, Ole Miss cast a popular vote to replace its outdated symbol of a Confederate rebel with a new symbol. One of the choices that was brought to light was Admiral Ackbar, leader of the Rebel Alliance in Star Wars. Ultimately, the university thought the suggestion a joke, but I think it had a lot of merit...and it would have grown the Ole Miss fan base by a million fold, given the popularity of the sci-fi franchise.
