Nutt Hotty-Toddied Wednesday 

According to a report in Jackson, Mississippi's Clarion-Ledger, Ole Miss' new football coach Houston Nutt received a standing ovation from fans Wednesday in Oxford.

“I feel like this place can be successful. I feel like this place can win.," he said. "I can’t wait to tell (the players) that the way you spell fun is w-i-n.”

Nutt, the University of Arkansas coach, was hired to replace Ole Miss' Ed Orgeron who was fired Saturday after three seasons. Nutt reportedly signed a four-year deal worth $7.4 million to coach at Ole Miss.

A capacity crowd showed up Wednesday to welcome Nutt at a appearance at the university's Gertrude Ford Center. Five-hundred were turned away when the 1,500-seat space was filled.
