Apparently they didn't really know quite what to do with Ole Miss.

Some are better than others. USC-Bama, Auburn-Clemson, OU- Houston, & LSU-Wisconsin are all pretty good.

The Texas longhorn has a Tennessee "T", not the Texas "T" on his bandanna. Small mistake.

But that Fla. State-- Ole Miss interpretation is a huge PC fail. I can buy the non-use of a Confederate soldier or Colonel Reb for Ole Miss, but they could have used the new official Black Bear mascot. And they definitely should have used the tribally-approved Seminole warrior instead of the Ace & Gary-like "Garnet and Gold Guys" ...

That's the problem with Ole Miss. Even the name is controversial. Look up the documentary, Ghosts of Ole Miss. They still have trouble recruiting. In my opinion, I would have skipped making the Ole Miss cover.

Personally, I like the Trojans/Tide cover, but I'm a USC fan.
