Ole Miss freshman wide receiver Laquon Treadwell may have just bitten off a little bit more than he can chew, but I do give him respect for having stones to speak his feelings.

Treadwell stepped on the hot coals just enough to burn his fast feet, but left himself just enough room for interpretation when he sent out this tweet talking about a potential upset over rivals the Alabama Crimson Tide – a game that is only a few days away. Laquon Treadwell tweeted (follow his Twitter account if you like @SuccesfulQuon) about his Rebels beating the Alabama Crimson Tide this Saturday (September 28), which would have a lot of fans — from casual observers to game prediction enthusiasts who participate in college football betting at US sportsbooks (ala topbet.eu) — laughing hysterically.

Take a look:
Treadwell and the Rebels will, of course, travel to Tuscaloosa this Saturday to battle the No. 1 ranked Crimson Tide. If Ole Miss wins, Treadwell can say, "See, I told you so."  But if Bama beats the Rebels, Treadwell can say he was predicting Monday night football or something else like that.

Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace piggy backed on his receivers comments, and sounds confident they can duplicate the success Texas A&M had.

“I think we have better receivers than A&M. They want to talk about Mike Evans being so good, but we have Donte (Moncrief) and I think Laquon (Treadwell) is going to be that way. We have better players on the outside than A&M does. … Yeah, I think we can put points on [Alabama]. I think we can put points on anybody.”

What do you think of Ole Miss' chances against Nick Saban's squad? Will this public display of over confidence run this Rebel into hot water on the actual game day? Is it best for players to keep this kind of chatter off of social networks?
