Admiral Ackbar as Ole Miss' new mascot? It's (not) a trap!
The University of Mississipi, aka Ole Miss, is seeking a new mascot since the previous one, Colonel Reb, has been retired, and Admiral Ackbar is a popular contender to fill the role, says "Access Hollywood."
Assuming George Lucas would actually allow the Star Wars galaxy character, of the Mon Calamari people, to be used as a mascot, the final decision is up to the students' vote vote on the mascot committee.
It's a perfect marriage of rebels: Ole Miss' Rebels and the good admiral as the leader of the Rebel Alliance.
