SEC Football Media Days 2008: Ole Miss Rebels
HOOVER, Ala. — SEC Football Media Days 2008 quotes from Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt and Ole Miss players.
COACH NUTT: Thank you. I’m privileged to be here. Going into my 11th season in the SEC. Very excited to be the head coach at Ole Miss University. We’ve had a good transition so far. It seems like we’ve been there a long time already.
But we’re excited. Our families, our coaches, we’re all moved and we’re into it. It’s hard to believe it’s 37, 38 days away and here we go again in the toughest conference in America.
So I’m excited and ready to go. Ready for questions.
Q. Could you tell me what your impressions of Michael Oher were before you came to Ole Miss, and what are they now that you have him as a member of your team?
COACH NUTT: Michael Oher, Danny, my brother, was recruiting him at the time when he was attending Briarcrest High School. The first time we saw Michael was on a basketball court. Big ol’ guy, was so athletic, so fluid. Didn’t get much of a shot at him.
