Mascot poll open to UM voters

Fans of Admiral Ackbar may be disappointed to see that he didn’t quite make the cut, but with 11 choices to select from for the new mascot, the University of Mississippi community has its work cut out for it to find the right look for the Rebels.
Starting today and continuing until July 5, members of the UM community can rate each option.
For each mascot option, voters can rate their opinion from “I love this idea” to “I very much dislike this idea.”
