Laquon Treadwell comfortable, confident going into Egg Bowl

I thought Ole Miss missed an opportunity Saturday to honor members of the Class of 13 who aren’t expected to be around next year.

Laremy Tunsil, Laquon Treadwell and Robert Nkemdiche were all playing their final game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium unless something highly unforeseen occurs with the draft. All three are projected first-year picks and not just the back end of the first round.

Treadwell talks about his time at Ole Miss here. He hits other topics, Egg Bowl and whatnot, and talks about the comfort he’s feeling while playing some of the best ball of his career.

Treadwell has had at least one touchdown catch in six straight games. He had a streak of five-straight 100-yard receiving games end against LSU when he had four catches for 58 yards.

“Each week I feel like I get better. I feel my movements more, I let my instincts take over. It’s a different feeling out there. I get in a zone sometimes. Once the ball gets in my hands I just go out and play hard,” he said.

Treadwell goes into the Egg Bowl with 72 catches for 1,060 yards and eight touchdowns.

    I would hope that the SEC commissioner monitors the ‘cow bell’ NOISE and imposes harsh penalties for any abuse by the fans. Also, if the noise of clanging bells is overwhelming during the game when the Rebels have the ball (which IS an infraction of the rules) then the officiating crew should penalize the dogs 10 yards every single time it gets out of hand. THAT’S how you stop that crap. Fans yelling and clapping is fine,but artificial noise makers is totally unfair. IF you’re gonna make a racket then do it with your hands or voice.

      If Ole Miss is trying to score or they need to get one yard, or if there is any kind of “big play” then they will be ringing their cowbells. It happens every year Ole Miss plays down there. The refs won’t do anything about it. They will just fine them later. But if it helps them get a win then state won’t mind paying a fine. That is why cowbells should be outlawed.
