Ole Miss called out over apparent fake injury against Mississippi State in Egg Bowl
Another Ole Miss game. Another Rebel defender appearing to get injured at a convenient time.
Mississippi State was driving when play had to be stopped, as an Ole Miss defender went down just before the snap.

Ole Miss has faced accusations of faked injuries throughout the 2021 season. CFB Twitter was pretty convinced Lane Kiffin’s squad did it again Thursday night.

Imagine that, an Ole Miss player is suddenly injured before State is about to snap.

In order for the fake injuries to work, they need to happen during the play, not prior to the next snap

It wouldn’t be an Ole Miss game without a fake injury or two

Mississippi State ultimately did not score on the drive. It’s 10-6 Ole Miss at the half.
