Ole Miss unveiled their brand new mascot over the weekend and early returns were that it was a success. Tony the Landshark, named after the late great Tony Fein, made its debut at Meet The Rebels and kids loved it, fans loved it, and the Rebs dominated Twitter for the better part of 48 hours.
We discuss our thoughts on the release, the new branding, and what we think could enhance the brand moving forward. Also, should they add a female mascot to the fold to reach out even further to the female fanbase and female sports on campus.
We also touch on Tiger Woods’ humongous push for a major over the weekend and how it factors in to his Ryder Cup status and legacy moving forward. Is his impact on golf bigger than Michael Jordan’s impact on basketball?
Also, Chad Kelly back.
