COLUMN: Ole Miss’ lack of discipline is not new, but it cost them the game this time

What has been a strange season for the Ole Miss Rebels was capped off appropriately with possibly the wildest Egg Bowl finish ever, with the Mississippi State Bulldogs retaining the Golden Egg with a 21-20 victory on Thanksgiving night.

It took a remarkable miscalculation of judgement to top the list of unimaginable moments unique to this rivalry, but here we are. Sophomore receiver Elijah Moore did his best 2017 D.K. Metcalf impression and crawled on all fours before lifting his hind leg to metaphorically mark his territory after catching a touchdown late in the game, causing flags to fly in the back of the endzone.
