Nutt Thrilled With Mackey’s Progress

Randall Mackey appears to be the leader in Ole Miss’ quarterback competition so far.  But that’s not why Houston Nutt is excited.

Mackey had the best performance among UM’s QBs in a weekend scrimmage.  But that’s not why Nutt is excited.

No.  Nutt is excited because Mackey is overcoming his one speech impediment… a problem that once kept him from calling out plays and signals in the huddle and at the line of scrimmage.

“To me, that’s the thing of the spring,” Nutt told The Jackson Clarion-Ledger.  “The biggest single most awesome thing is him in that huddle, saying very clearly the play and then barking out the snap count.  Been very, very proud.  I never would have dreamed (that) this time last year.”

Mackey transferred into Oxford from the juco ranks before last season.

Congratulations to the player on his improvements.  It can’t be easy to deal with that kind of issue in an 85-man locker room.
