The University of Mississippi, better known as Ole Miss, changed its mascot back in October. So I was a little surprised on my walk when I saw the old mascot- Colonel Reb. There are a lot of people that still wish that he was the mascot. Now mind you, I have no connection to the school, but I am very happy with the new mascot that is a black bear. I think once they get to know the black bear, they will end up loving him. From my experience, that is just the way it is with Bears.
