Amid a season overshadowed by the fallout of an NCAA investigation and a sudden coaching change, Ole Miss interim coach Matt Luke has constantly fielded questions about how the Rebels stay motivated.
He’s heard enough.
Luke fired back at those inquiries during an emotional speech to his team before last week’s game at Kentucky. Video of the speech was posted to Twitter on Monday by Scout.com reporter Yancy Porter and can be seen below.
