The Ole Miss-Mississippi State continues to make headlines in the middle of the summer.

Last week, Clarion-Ledger columnist Hugh Kellenberger wrote a column how the hate in the Egg Bowl rivalry has gone too far. On Saturday, Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze chimed in on the state of the rivalry, agreeing with Kellenberger’s take in a tweet that has been taken down.

Mississippi State beat reporter David Murray called Kellenberger’s column “worthless piece of summer writing”.

Now it looks like a high school coach has lost his job due to some strong Egg Bowl takes.

According to Yancy Porter of Scout.com, Lee Wooldridge had accepted a job at South Panola High School, located about 25 miles from Oxford, Mississippi. Wooldridge is a prominent poster on a Mississippi State message board site.

When South Panola’s head coach, Lance Pouge, had been made aware of Woolridge’s postings, Woolridge lost his job according to Will Sammon of the Clarion-Ledger.
