- Lane Kiffin is rather active on social media and uses his Twitter account as a recruiting tool when he can.
- As Ole Miss fans take over Omaha, they are crushing an insane amount of Jell-O Shots.

Ole Miss may lose games, but it never loses a party. The College World Series is no exception.
After being the last team into the Field of 64 for the NCAA baseball tournament, the Rebels have gone on a ridiculous tear. They did not lose as the three-seed in the Miami Regional and they shutout Southern Miss on the Golden Eagles’ home turf in the Super Regional to earn a World Series bid.
Upon arrival in Omaha, Ole Miss beat Auburn 5-1 and beat Arkansas 13-5. They dropped a game to the Hogs after failing to convert on a bases-loaded situation in the bottom of the ninth, but rebounded in Game 2 to earn their way into the College World Series Final.
Meanwhile, the Rebels have been crushing Jell-O shots. Not the team, but the fans.
A few years back, a bar across the street from Charles Schwab stadium began a new tradition — the Rocco’s Pizza & Cantina Jell-O Shot Challenge. The concept is simple. Each fanbase in the College World Series competes to tally as many Jell-O Shots as possible.
Right out of the gate, it became a two-school race between Ole Miss and Arkansas. Both schools annihilated the all-time record in just three days and people were buying shots by the case in order to rack up their team’s total.
Well, because the Rebels eliminated the Razorbacks and sent their fans back to Arkansas, they are well on their way to a Jell-O Shot National Championship and Lane Kiffin is using it as a recruiting tool on social media.
On Saturday morning, prior to Ole Miss’ first College World Series Final game against Oklahoma, Rocco’s updated the Jell-O Shot count. The Rebels eclipsed the 10,000-shot mark in exactly seven days since their first game in Omaha last Friday. They are averaging more than 1,000 Jell-O shots per day.
Kiffin, who created the hashtag #ComeToTheSip when he took over in December of 2019, made sure to share the board with his followers.
Ole Miss NEVER loses a party!
