The Ole Miss Rebels have been known to put a few guys in the NFL as they’ve been one of pro football’s best breeding grounds for talent since long before most of us have been alive. Current Philadelphia Eagles star A.J. Brown is one of their more recent success stories. He and two former Mississippi State Bulldogs on the roster, Darius Slay and Fletcher Cox, figure to exchange a few competitive discussions this season. It appears his desire to compete extends to former teammates as well.

Brown and D.K. Metcalf of the Seattle Seahawks were teammates for three seasons at Oxford beginning in 2016. Current New York Jets star Elijah Moore joined the fray for their final run in 2018. The rest of the SEC is probably relieved about that.

Any team that comes out on top in the SEC Championship Game would have earned it. We’re talking about the best conference in all of NCAA football, one where its members beat up on each other annually.

Just look at some of these monsters in the western division: Ole Miss, the Alabama Crimson Tide, the LSU Tigers, the Auburn Tigers, the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Mississippi State Bulldogs, and the Texas A&M Aggies.

We haven’t even mentioned the SEC East, where traditional powers like Georgia Bulldogs reside. Oh, and perhaps you’ve heard. The Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners will join the fray before too long.

Recently, two of the conference’s alumnus, the aforementioned A.J. Brown and Elijah Moore, hung out with Florida Atlantic University’s head strength and conditioning coach, Joseph Guarascio. As you might expect, it didn’t take long for the competitive juices to begin flowing again.

If you’re one of those Eagles fans who are wondering about A.J. Brown’s recent injuries and whether or not he’s lost a step, don’t trouble yourselves. He can still pick them up and put them down. He and Elijah Moore, always the competitors, decided to test one another in a foot race.

Here’s how things shook out!

Truthfully, we couldn’t tell a doggone thing by that last angle, so we decided to go straight to the source. We looked at A.J.’s Twitter account to get some insight, but he didn’t seem as though he was able to name a winner either!

Oh well! It was still fun to watch.

As a trio, D.K. Metcalf, Elijah Moore, and A.J. Brown compiled 197 receptions, 3,082 receiving yards, and 19 touchdowns during the 2018 NCAA football season (keep in mind the fact that D.K. missed a lot of time due to injury).

Yep, there’s no doubt about it. No one outside of Oxford, Mississippi was sad to see those guys leave the conference. Who would want to match up with those guys? Why the heck would you want to run the football?

No, scratch that. The Rebels had Greg Little and Javon Patterson on the offensive line. They also had Scottie Phillips in the backfield. Yes, you definitely want to run the ball with that team.

Perhaps the only issue that the Rebels had in 2018 is the fact that offense can only be played with one football. They needed two or three to give everyone enough touches.
