The 2023 college football season has still not come to an end. However, talk amongst the media and fans is how well Ole Miss could do in 2024. One SECN analyst has called his shot regarding the Rebels next season.
Lane Kiffin and the team are creating something special in Oxford. With the Peach Bowl still to play, Ole Miss are sitting on ten regular season wins again under Kiffin.
Kiffin has the team ranked in the top three in the transfer portal as of today. They are also ranked top 20 in the 2024 recruiting class. The buzz around the program is at an all-time high, with predictions coming in on what the Rebels can achieve in the 2024 season.
One SEC Network analyst has called his shot on what he believes Ole Miss will achieve in 2024. Roman Harper, who played safety for Alabama from 2002-2005, guaranteed the Rebels would make the new-look 12-team playoff next season.
"“I’ll just say it right now, Ole Miss is going to be in the playoffs next year. Period. I’m not guaranteeing they end up in the SEC Championship. I am guaranteeing that Ole Miss will be in the playoffs,”"- SEC Network analyst, Roman Harper
In 2024, the FBS will be moving to a new 12-team playoff after years of being knocked back. If 12 teams made up the playoffs this season, Ole Miss would have made the cut.
With the Rebels making big moves in the transfer portal, it's easy to see why Ole Miss are being precited to make the the playoffs. Most of the starters from 2023 will be back, which makes it feel like something special is on the horizon.
Roman Harper may be sceptical about an SEC Championship game appearance for Ole Miss. However, Hotty Toddy are starting to believe that 2024 could be their year.
