Ole Miss, WR Elijah Moore apologize for urinating dog celebration

Ole Miss, WR Elijah Moore apologize for urinating dog celebration”

The celebration was reminiscent of former Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf doing the same celebration in the 2017 Egg Bowl.

Logan missed the 36-yarder to secure the win for Mississippi State.

With just four seconds left in the fourth quarter, Moore had caught a short pass near the goal line and plowed through a Bulldogs defender to score, cutting Mississippi State's lead to one, 21-20.

Luke Logan missed another 35-yard point after MS receiver Elijah Moore was penalized for celebrating a touchdown by crawling and pretending to urinate like a dog. But Moore's celebration - he crawled on all fours toward the back of the end zone, then lifted a leg to simulate a dog urinating - drew a 15-yard-penalty, turning a perfunctory point-after kick into a 35-yard attempt, which Rebel kicker Luke Logan missed, wide right, preserving the Bulldogs' 1-point victory and adding another weird chapter to the long rivalry, contested for the 92nd time Thursday.

On the final drive of the game, Mississippi State committed three of its five total penalties and Ole Miss ran nine plays inside the 15 before eventually connecting for the touchdown. The dog-peeing celebration turned Moore from hero to villain in a matter of moments, prompting howls of derision from the stands and on social media. Metcalf copied huge receiver Odell Beckham Jr. after he infamously did the improper birthday party while he used to be with the Recent York Giants. He was fined a little over $12,000.

The statement continued to say that the issue will be addressed and disciplinary action will be handled internally. That's not who he is.

Luke said he knew that as emotions flared showboating would need to be avoided.

Elijah Moore will probably never get down again on his hands and knees and pretend to urinate like a dog. "We've been a disciplined team all year, and so just disappointed that happened".

Ole Miss quarterback John Rhys Plumlee told the Oxford Eagle: "When you're excited and you make a big play, you celebrate a little bit. It's an emotional game and that's part of it sometimes".
