A rivalry game apology

Elijah Moore, Matt Luke and Ole Miss athletic director Keith Carter all managed the obligatory apology after Moore’s on field display of doggy-style urination helped cause the Rebels to blow a shot at taking the Egg Bowl to overtime.

Keeping in the spirit of the moment, though, the apologies were only extended to Moore’s teammates, coaches and Ole Miss fans — not to Mississippi State.  Some bridges are too far, you know.

    The SEC shorts guys are going to have a field day with this. Unless there’s another kick six moment somewhere today.

    Don’t change Egg Bowl. Don’t ever change.

    Good catch, Senator! I focused on the apology’s stock crisis-team management jargon: “this is not who I am”….”I will grow stronger from this mistake”. Man, that whole sequence at then end of the game was absolutely glorious.


  4. We flipped to the game late. My wife was hoping Ole Mi$$ would pull the upset as we started watching. As soon as this happened and the kicker missed the extra point, she said, “I’m glad Mississippi State won.”

    All these two schools have is to hate each other. All of the hate of the Iron Bowl without the relevance.

      There’s a deeper (wannabe) classism hate in the egg bowl that doesn’t quite exist in the iron bowl . Its portrayed very much as liberal arts vs cow college… “planter’s son” vs “farmer’s son” mentality…. now, i say wannabe because that’s really not the way it is, just the way the ole miss people wish it was. Most ole miss people are your average middle to upper middle class suburbanites from memphis and jackson who’ve only ever ridden through the delta on their way to a casino.

    Even though that was a DA move by Moore, the kicker should have made the extra point.

      Yeah, but then we wouldn’t have anything to snark about.


    • Blame the loss on the kicker. The Rebels and Moore in particular got their just desserts.

      You go from a 20 yard extra point to a 35 yard kick for a bonehead move, and it’s the kicker’s fault.

      If Nick had done that on the tying TD in the Rose Bowl and Rod missed the kick, would you be blaming that on Rod?


      • The Truth

        I completely agree with your analogy, and think it’s a good one. In reality isn’t the likelihood that Nick Chubb would have ever done something like that almost beyond zero. Isn’t that why Nick is about the damn goodest of all DGDs.

    Still irritated about that. Too bad Moore is a senior. Disappointed that Luke didn’t have enough stones to run him to the locker room. This is the same clown that called a fair catch after receiving a punt. Ugh.

    “Some bridges are too far, you know.”

    Abso-damn-lutely. The only reason they regret it is because of letting down the team and the fans. At least it is honest.

    I laughed so hard I cried when I saw that….
    Then I thought to myself… what would Kirby have done to that player when he got back to the sideline ? It would have been ugly.

    He should have walked back to Oxford.
