Josh McCoy-Ole Miss Athletics

After clobbering Auburn in the last home series of the year, the No. 5-ranked Rebs are back in the mix for a national seed. So naturally, we three argued about it for a little over 30 minutes. Despite the Rebs impressive 39-13 overall record and 16-11 SEC record, there are still question marks out there.

  • Will the non-conference strength of schedule be an issue?
  • Will little guy Stetson get in over the Rebs?
  • Does the NCAA want that many SEC national seeds?
  • Can the ACC get one? Two?
  • Is the Big 12 still playing baseball?
  • What about Oregon State? Do they deserve another top tier national seed despite playing no one?

All of these questions AND MORE are answered on this week’s episode. The fellas debate and go back-and-forth about Ole Miss’ current standings and what they need to do to lock this thing up.

The Rebs just need to keep winning, baby. That’s all they can do and all they need to worry about. You can’t control your own destiny (it’s literally not possible), but you can control your mindset.

Just. Keep. Winning.


Go see Greg before the Rebs take on Alabama to close out the regular season this weekend and snag some choice meat to grill out for graduation from LB’s Meat Market, the official sponsor of this here podcast and the best protein for your Ole Miss baseball grilling needs. Also, the BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW food truck will be out and about on The Square. So go get some!

And if you like gambling and good food, head down south to Biloxi after this weekend’s series to Harrah’s Gulf Coast for some blackjack, slots, Southern cooking from our good friend, Kelly English, at the Magnolia House, and SOON TO BE HOME TO A SPORTSBOOK. What’s not to like? Winning money, drinking, indoor/outdoor sports bar, STARBUCKS, and our pal Kelly whipping stuff up in a crock pot probably. Go down to the Coast and tell em Red Cup sent ya!
