Admiral Ackbar

The students at Ole Miss University are voting on a new mascot today, and there’s a groundswell of support for an unexpected nominee: Admiral Ackbar from Return of the Jedi. While the university has the final say on the new mascot — meaning Ackbar’s nomination will probably be ignored — that hasn’t stopped Mississippi’s students from trying to effect change.

The Ackbar movement even has its own site, as well as Twitter and Facebook profiles.

As indicated, the vote is taking place today, so if you are an Ole Miss student who wants to add some Mon Calamari flavor to your campus, make sure you make your check-marks heard.

The following is a show of support from a fan of one SEC school to another, and I hope the it brings the Ackbar movement so luck:
