Lane Kiffin explains Ole Miss's new turnover cash bag and touchdown chain
The Ole Miss Rebels may have lost to Florida on Saturday afternoon, but they sure were fun to watch under new head coach Lane Kiffin.
After an early interception, the Rebels also had plenty of fun with their new turnover prop — a comically large burlap sack with a money symbol on it.
So, what’s the deal with the bag? And with the touchdown chain? After the game, Kiffin explained that it’s something that makes the players happy, so he’s fine with it:
“We have two things,” Kiffin said. “We have a turnover bag (of cash) and a touchdown chain. We let the players pick things out and do whatever they want.”
The touchdown chain made plenty of appearances on Saturday but the cash bag will need to come out more if the Rebels are going to pull off some upsets.
Either way, the team looks like it is having plenty of fun under Kiffin already.
