Ole Miss pisses away the Egg Bowl to Mississippi State

first_imgMORE: Picks for Rivalry Week games”Just disappointed,” Ole Miss coach Matt Luke told reporters after the game (per Jackson, Miss., TV station WJTV). “It’s not who we are. We’ve been a disciplined team all year and (I’m) just disappointed that it happened. . . . Elijah’s a good kid. He got caught up in the moment.”Mississippi State gets the win, Moore gets all the online abuse he deserves and Ole Miss, which isn’t bowl-eligible after a 4-8 season, gets to live with the stink of this for a whole year. The Egg Bowl rivalry game between Ole Miss and Mississippi State is one of the most hate-filled in the nation. It leads players to taunt their opponents . . . like how Ole Miss player Elijah Moore did Thursday.Bad Rebel. Bad. Ole Miss had drawn to a point behind the Bulldogs in the closing seconds of regulation on Moore’s receiving touchown, but Moore decided that wasn’t good enough. He tried to celebrate by making like a dog and doing the old pee taunt — right in front of an official.Out came the flag, back went the kicking team 15 yards for the extra-point try (a 2-point attempt for the win was no longer a good option) and, well, let’s just say: College kickers, man.OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! ELIJAH MOORE’S PENALTY JUST COST OLE MISS!!!!!!!!!!!! THE GAME TYING EXTRA POINT IS NO GOOD!!!!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/wwTd5OJzG5— I’M SEEING GHOSTS (@FTBeard11) November 29, 2019The Rebels lost by (No.)1.last_img
