We all know who Jerrion Ealy is by now. The record-setting running back at Jackson Prep has been a household name for four years now and finds himself on the cusp of a top 10 pick pay day next Spring. But, he’s also committed to Mike Bianco and Matt Luke to play both sports at Ole Miss next year. So which one is it?

Former Ole Miss and UAB pitcher Justin Kemp has been around the block and has seen the ups and downs of the MLB Draft with teammates coming and going through the minor league system. On this episode, we run him through the ringer and get his takes on why he thinks Jerrion should reconsider and take a step back and think about his future with a little more nuance and not just dollars and cents.

We also compare and debate the 2003 Ole Miss football team and this year’s team.
