Mississippi State senior tackle Addison Lawrence has thrown a little gas on the Egg Bowl fire heading into Saturday’s game. It seems the Bulldog believes Ole Miss is on the verge of throwing in the towel:
“I think they’re going to come out fired up and hot, but if we jump on them, I think they’ll kind of lay down. I feel like they’re wanting to lay down in a way, because o the things that have been happening here recently.”
Is Lawrence right? Probably. Teams playing for lame-duck coaches usually have little pep in their step. The Rebels have lived down to that expectation the past two weeks.
But was Lawrence wise to share his feeling publicly? No. If Ole Miss’ players are ready to lay down, why give them any reason to get back up?
