After of summer of comparing the legacies and careers of great Rebels from the last decade, it's down to four. Look away now if you're hoping for a little assurance that Ole Miss fans give a rip about anything other than football.
We gave you an option back in the beginning of August about how this would all end. In a pretty close vote you chose to have a WWE style four-man match for all the marbles*. This option, thankfully, beat out a "re-bracket" scheme that would have required us to put forther way more effort than that with which we are comfortable. We have a certain "slacker chic," and that would cut into our NCAA '11 time.
We tossed around the idea of including in the end a true** Rebel that probably should have made it into the the bracket somewhere:
I'm Hotty. You'll never guess where Toddy is. HE'S IN MY PANTS!
*RCR specifically disclaims that any marbles will be awarded.
**RCR specifically disclaims any warranty that Hotty Toddy Guy aka "Mr. Sparkles" is, in fact, a true Rebel and not an artist rendering of mascot option #8, "Mouthbreathing Assmuncher."
Based on athletic achievement and contribution to your nebulous subjective idea of "Ole Miss culture," who is the Rebel of the Decade?
