Alabama were favored to win their matchup against the University of Mississippi last Saturday.

The Crimson Tide was No.2 in the Associated Press poll before their SEC mathchup with the Rebels.

They had the opportunity to show everyone that were watching on ESPN that they were going to make a statement and prove that they were on a mission to make it back to the national playoffs.

Also, they had a great record against Ole Miss over the years, but wanted to avenge last year’s loss.

Ole Miss had other ideas as they went into Bryant-Dennenhy Stadium and shocked the Crimson Tide 43-37.

The Rebels basically dominated the game from start to finish.

They blitz the quarterback, Jake Coker, who was starting as a senior after sitting out last year, held Alabama’s running game to a hault.

Ole Miss also had some luck in their win.

Alabama was trailing by seven points going into the third quarter and had brought the heat against Ole Miss Quarterback Chad Kelly.

Though Kelly mishandled the snap and threw a bad pass that would have been intercepted, the football hit off the helmet of Bama’s defensive player and found wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo, who took the football to the house 66 yards to increase the lead by 14 points.

“I have never seen anything like that,” Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson said to AL.com. “It’s just kind of…I mean, honestly, it’s luck, just to be honest. No way in the world you plan that, but it’s kind of how it goes sometimes.”

That football play basically put a dagger in the heart of the Crimson Tide, though they made a furious push toward tying the ball game in the end.

In a lot of ways, Ole Miss created their own luck because they went into the matchup with a mindset that they can beat the mighty Crimson Tide at Dennehy stadium even though the place is one of the toughest places for an opponent to win in college football.

When someone has great success in their positive career journey, many will say that they were lucky to be enjoying their success.

What those same people need to understand is that they created their own luck and that is why there are successful.

And speaking of people creating their own luck, you should take a listen to the story of Kayla Chatkeiwicz on how she founded her company, Smylelin Media, Inc on What’s The Word?

She built awareness of MS by using social media and also creating a strong community through a Twitter chat she co-hosts called #MSChat
