Colonel Reb

One student each year at Ole Miss dressed in a Confederate uniform and paraded down the sidelines exhorting the Rebel faithful to cheer for their winning team. Seeking to professionalize the sideline appearance, the student was exchanged for a trained cheerleader mascot in the form of the original 1938 emblem that was a campus staple on merchandise. Colonel Reb finally graduated from his 40 year paper history to a living caricature on the field in 1979. In 2003, the administration eliminated Colonel Reb from the sidelines at Ole Miss athletic events as the on-the-field mascot, though he was allowed at tailgating and other unofficial university functions. At this time there has been no replacement for the beloved Colonel Reb.
