Ole Miss strength coach shows off 2015 trophy case
Ole Miss has a lot of reasons to celebrate its 2015 season.
The Rebels were the only team to defeat the Alabama Crimson Tide this season and finished the year with three straight trophy-game wins to have a pretty full trophy case to look at all offseason.
Mississippi strength coach Paul Jackson showed off his team’s haul on Twitter on Saturday night:

That is an impressive looking trophy case.
It is doubly impressive considering this was he first time Ole Miss had won the Sugar Bowl since 1970. It was also the first time Ole Miss has held the Magnolia Bowl trophy (for defeating LSU), the Egg Bowl trophy (for defeating Mississippi State) and a bowl trophy since 2008 and the second time since 1997.
That full trophy case is as much a sign of how Hugh Freeze has helped turn Ole Miss around as much as anything else. And the Rebels and their fans should take an offseason to enjoy it.
