  All jokes aside, Elijah Moore's 'pee' celebration was an all-time sports blunder All jokes aside, Elijah Moore's 'pee' celebration was an all-time sports blunderA 12-car pile-up of the bizarre and unimaginable emerged in Starkville, Mississippi, late Thursday night. A rivalry game known as the Egg Bowl between bitter foils Ole Miss and Mississippi State was decided because a player celebrated the potential game-tying touchdown with a mimic of a dog lifting his leg and pretending to pee.

According to coaches and teammates, Moore did not address his teammates after the game.

"I think everybody was excited we scored a touchdown," Ole Miss quarterback John Rhys Plumlee said. "When you're excited and make a big play, I think you celebrate a little bit. They just didn't call it our way."

Even if the penalty had not been called, Luke said he would've attempted the PAT for the tie instead of going for the two-point conversion to win the game.

After Logan's missed extra point, Mississippi State's bench stormed the field. Because there were still four seconds left in the game, that triggered a 15-yard penalty. But that penalty was offset because one Ole Miss player ran on the field as well.

"He's a big contributor to this team and is a leader on this team," Plumlee said about Logan. "That's just how football is sometimes. I know people are going to give him grief about it. I can tell social media is probably going to put a lot of blame on him. But at the end of the day we could've been in a way better situation. I'm in Luke's corner no matter what."

Opinion: Can you really blame Washington coach Chris Petersen for wanting to take a break? .
Washington's Chris Petersen often has done things his way; it's not unreasonable for him to take break from grind of a world with endless headaches.When he came out of relative obscurity to lead Boise State to one of the most memorable upsets in college football history over Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl, he didn’t jump at the next big opportunity. In fact, over and over again, Petersen turned down jobs that almost any other coach would have taken — not just middle-of-the-road power conference gigs but some really good ones.
