  • Zags' Star Wars mascot?

    Have you guys seen this Admiral Ackbar mascot stuff for Ole Miss? Can’t miss it if you’ve been to espn.com in the last couple days.

    In case you haven’t - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jx0pTIDb-r0 (and damn isn’t the girl in those first few seconds smokin…?)

    Begs the question: Which Star Wars character would make the perfect mascot for the Zags? Not that we’re at all needing in the mascot department with Spike, but it’s fun to think about nonetheless.

    My vote is for Wicket the Ewok. The Ewoks are the warm and fuzzy badasses of the Star Wars universe and the Zags embody that in college bball. Plus the whole underdog, David VS Goliath archetype is there as well.

    Chewie would fun too but The Oklahoma City Sonics, I mean Thunder, already took him.

    Pretty sure the Zags already had the 1st Star Wars Mascot.
    But we don't play nobody.

      Ewok = Noooooooooooooooooooooo! Anything but an Ewok! They're worse than Jar Jar Binks!

      My vote:

      Bounty Hunters. The Zags bring 'em back, dead or alive.

        I like to post this every few months.
        “No team in the country has a better winning percentage against power conference teams since 2017 than Gonzaga... the Zags are playing above average teams in the best leagues in the country and winning 78% of the time.”

                Darth can't be taken. Kentucky already claimed him.

                    too easy

                    How about the Star Wars character who was played by an actual Zag?

                      I'm going for yoda. We're distinguished, wise, small in size but big on talent. Our skills are unmatched, but somehow nobody huge we fight when it really matters ends up in victory.

                        Wookies as the Zags mascot are a no brainer. As noted by others:

                        -There was an actual wookie played by a zag.
                        -They are all 7 feet tall.
                        -They all have Zag hair.

                        Case closed. Screw the OKC Thunder.

                        By the way, if you follow the Axel Dench link on that page you get the following:

                        Axel Dench played Merumeru in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Also in his career he has starred in films such as Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Flight of the Navigator, Twins and hit TV series Grange Hill
                        Huh?
