Hugh Freeze agrees Egg Bowl rivalry has gone too far
On Saturday, Hugh Kellenberger wrote a column in The Clarion-Ledger about the Egg Bowl rivalry between Ole Miss and Mississippi State.
He said the rivalry has gotten too nasty, with each side reveling in the failures of the other.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze took to Twitter on Sunday to agree with Kellenberger:
Totally agree. It has gone to far. Both sides should rejoice that we are relevant in college football. https://t.co/SZALLatYyC

As both Mississippi schools continue to rise in prominence on the national stage, it sounds like Freeze will try to do more to keep the rivalry from getting out of hand.
The 2016 Egg Bowl game is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 26, in Oxford.
