Thread: Zags' Star Wars mascot?

  1. #1

    Default Zags' Star Wars mascot?

    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.

    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.

    How about the Star Wars character 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.
