Ole Miss Rebels coach Lane Kiffin brought props to the Rebels' baseball field Friday night.
The coach who rarely passes up an opportunity to troll stepped to the mound with a plan. Instead of throwing a baseball during the ceremonial first pitch before the Rebels' game, Kiffin reached into his pocket, pulled out a bright yellow golf ball, then hurled it toward home plate.
The opponent for the Rebs that night: Tennessee.
You'll recall that five months ago, Kiffin was nearly hit by a golf ball in his return as a head coach to Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee -- where he led the Vols during the 2009 season before bolting for USC.
Ole Miss beat Tennessee 31-26 last October, but the game was overshadowed by an ugly scene in which fans threw beer bottles, water bottles and even a mustard bottle in the direction of the visitor's sideline. Play had to be stopped until things settled down enough.
Kiffin joked afterward that he planned to keep as a souvenir a yellow golf ball that had been hurled in his direction.
There's no word on whether it's the same ball he threw from the pitcher's mound on Friday night.
