Many fans remember Nutt’s “FIFTY” presser in his third year at Ole Miss. It was the beginning of his end. One of those weird deliveries that are vintage Houston Nutt. Here’s a reminder of his words from that day.
“But I just want to remind our fans of this, number one, it was just 50 years, its been 50 years since you won back to back January 1 games. Fifty! Fifty!”
While Greg Hardy was no longer in school at Ole Miss, its clear that he took this speech to heart and has been waiting to throw out the number 50 in a ridiculous manner. I congratulate Greg on keeping the torch lit for his alma mater.
Here is an excerpt from ESPN and Hardy’s interview. Get the full story here. I would like to add that he has 13 career sacks.
Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy has a lofty goal for the number of sacks he’s aiming for this season and he wasn’t really laughing when he said it.
“Fifty,” Hardy said Tuesday during a break between minicamp practices.
“Why shoot low, right? If I’m going to shoot at it, I’m going to shoot at it with a 50 caliber. I’m going to shoot at a little bird with a 50-caliber bullet. That’s the goal for this year, 50 sacks, that’s where I’m at. That’s the goal, 50. You heard it first.”
