Can't wait to see what a land shark looks like.

It'll be a Hootie-hiring, Hootie-firing, Blind-siding, buck-teething, Bong-hitting, check-writing, hooker-hiring, butt-dialing, son-of-a-gun.

Weren't the land sharks a bunch of highly rated well paid defensive players from a couple years ago. I am all about students changing the mascot...glad our students aren't idiots.

OM is that woman that would be a looker if she lost a few pounds, but she gets a different hair do.

From the article: "The term Landshark originated in 2008 and was quickly adopted by the football team's defensive unit, according to the athletic department."

It doesn't seem like I heard about or saw this happen as early as 2008.

Although, I did see an Ole Miss volleyball player on the "bench" do it after a big play tonight.

This is really awful.  The rebellious black bears was bad enough but this is even worse.  It's funny that a Nutt team originated this crappy nickname.  Hope they think of him every time they see the new mascot wobbling by.

I just really do not understand how they think that's a good mascot and name. It's mind blowing.

Wonder why they're bothering announcing the retirement of their mascot ?  The NCAA may be about to shoot a torpedo into their football program.  Torpedo's trump sharks.  They should just call themselves the..."Dash for Cash Rebels"...

And somewhere in Starkville, a Cousin Eddie lookin fugger is doing the same.  Bulldogs will be loaded with talent not having OM bag men to contend with.

Well, I'd say it's fitting given the fact that their program's on the verge of being a "fish out of water"...

And they're gonna have a hard time holding these allegations down. WOOOO!

Maybe they figure a 2nd change to an even crappier mascot name will qualify as a self imposed penalty.

Johnny Reb to black bear now Landshark. Interesting evolution. Landshark has a better ring to it than black bear and it's not original which is good....but it's still too contrived.

I hope the razorback doesn't ever get caught up in PC culture where we have to do away with it...that would suck.

That entire land shark thing from a few years ago was one of the dumber celebrations in  all of football.  So it dies out, and they name it their mascot. 

Awesome.

But how many of them actually bother coming into the game once they've had that heavenly "Grove" experience? Perhaps they'll need to rethink the name of said gather spot to "Chum Pond".

I like it. Landsharts is a great mascot for Ole Miss.
