I have the perfect solution for my Alma Mater’s new mascot, since they killed off Colonel Rebel.
It even has a close tie-in with the birth of rock and roll since the King himself was born in Mississippi – a stone’s throw from Oxpatch..
The new Ole Miss ROCKIN’ REBEL will feature an Elvis Presley character to saunter up and down the field on game day.
The new mascot would lend
itself well to merchandise items such as the Elvis Hair and little guitars to be strummed by the fans – much less obnoxious than a cowbell.
I even have a new fight song – “Go Rockin’ Rebels”
It goes like this:
They rock on the gridiron all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing their song
All the little birdies in the SEC
Love to hear the Rebels go tweet tweet tweet.
Rockin’ Rebels, tweet tweet tweet
Rockin’ Rebels’ tweet tweetly-tweet
Blow rockin’ Rebels
‘Cause we’re really gonna rock tonight.
So, what do you think? It’s way better than a bear, lion, shark or heaven forbid, two cartoon characters named Hotty and Totty. Now, who do I submit this to?
