Matt Luke isn’t messing around.
The Ole Miss interim coach received his current position under strange circumstances, but he’s making the most of his place in the post-Hugh Freeze era by starring in the passion department. On Wednesday, Ole Miss’ Twitter account released a clip of Luke giving a pep talk, presumably to Rebels players. It’s a brief look at Luke in action, but it’s easy to tell how much he cares about the message.

Of course, Ole Miss will need more than passion to compete in the SEC West this season. Freeze’s abrupt resignation last month led to even more uncertainty for a program already in turmoil. Luke and others will be tested in a big way this fall.
Still, the Rebels will benefit if they make the most of this time under Luke’s leadership, no matter how long his stint might last.
