Have you guys seen this Admiral Ackbar mascot stuff for Ole Miss? Canít miss it if youíve been to espn.com in the last couple days.

In case you havenít - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jx0pTIDb-r0 (and damn isnít the girl in those first few seconds smokinÖ?)

Begs the question: Which Star Wars character would make the perfect mascot for the Zags? Not that weíre at all needing in the mascot department with Spike, but itís fun to think about nonetheless.

My vote is for Wicket the Ewok. The Ewoks are the warm and fuzzy badasses of the Star Wars universe and the Zags embody that in college bball. Plus the whole underdog, David VS Goliath archetype is there as well.

Chewie would fun too but The Oklahoma City Sonics, I mean Thunder, already took him.

Pretty sure the Zags already had the 1st Star Wars Mascot.

Ewok = Noooooooooooooooooooooo! Anything but an Ewok! They're worse than Jar Jar Binks!

My vote:

Bounty Hunters. The Zags bring 'em back, dead or alive.

To borrow from the esteemed Mel Brooks, "Ewoks, We don't need no stinkin' Ewoks!"

How about the Star Wars character (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Merumeru) who was played by an actual Zag?

I'm going for yoda. We're distinguished, wise, small in size but big on talent. Our skills are unmatched, but somehow nobody huge we fight when it really matters ends up in victory.

Wookies as the Zags mascot are a no brainer. As noted by others:

-There was an actual wookie played by a zag.
-They are all 7 feet tall.
-They all have Zag hair.

Case closed. Screw the OKC Thunder.

By the way, if you follow the Axel Dench link on that page you get the following:


Axel Dench played Merumeru in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Also in his career he has starred in films such as Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Flight of the Navigator, Twins and hit TV series Grange Hill

Huh?

Holy smokes. I know it's the off-season, but this kind of stuff is embarrassing, at least if we consider ourselves a serious and smart group of fans. We can debate Star Wars characters but not Mark Few's merits as a head coach?

Embarrassing? Nah. Some schools' "serious and smart" fans are currently debating how many wins they will have to forfeit and other NCAA penalties that might be in store. Now that would be embarrassing.

This is thread is just killing time until November, that's all.

b) It's September....if this is posted 5-6 weeks from now, I myself would have moved it to the appropriate (and awesome) forum, The FOO.

c) I know I've got you. Thanks.

This is the best zags board on the internet, I can promise you that. Will the arguments always be valid? No. Are the discussion topics always fair and open minded? Not even close. But is this the board to be on during the season? Bleepin right it is.

Clearly you have not spent much time on the message boards of other schools where they "definitely consider themselves a serious and smart group of fans." For examples feel free to reference Kentucky's, KU's, UNC's, Duke's, UCLA's, etc. There are similar topics throughout their forums as well.

I would calmly grab a glass of water and your Xanax bottle and step back from the ledge.

On the other hand you could just open the threads that you seem to think are "serious and smart" and leave the rest of the threads to fans who, from time to time, might like to have a bit of fun.

Go Zags!

Haha Ė loved Dench! His best moment ever at GU - banked-in 3 from the top of the arc against Pepperdine in the Kennel in 2000.

That was a special game - loudest I ever heard it in the old gym.

This is TOTALLY off-topic, but since this thread has already gone south, I figure this was the best place to post this picture.


I just got my copy of the Athlon Sports mag, and is it me, or at a quick glance, does it look like Gray is smoking a cigarette while playing basketball? hahaha

Anyways...thought it was funny, thought i'd share.


*DISCLAIMER- In no way shape or form does Woohoo actually believe Gray is smoking a cigarette, it is only the mind playing tricks on you. Nor does Woohoo incenuate that Gray smokes cigarettes. Woohoo also does not condone, or misdone the use of smoking cigarettes. Thank you
