Ole Miss showed a touch of class

As bitter as the football rivalry between Ole Miss and Mississippi State has become, it was commendable to see the Rebel players feel almost as badly for Nick Fitzgerald as the Bulldogs did when MSU’s star quarterback went down early with a serious ankle injury in Thursday’s Egg Bowl.

No one should ever want another player’s career to be jeopardized by injury. It doesn’t matter which side you are on.

Although there were moments before and during the game that were not particularly classy, this was a notable exception.
