Some Nevada love for a former Tiger

Ziggy Hood

Sam and I explored the UNR campus a little this afternoon, and ran into a Nevada student wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers #96 jersey with HOOD printed above. That’s the jersey worn by Ziggy Hood, a former defensive lineman for MU, who’s now in the NFL.

The student said he had to get to class, holding in his hand a paper to turn in, but stopped to chat for a bit. He said he’s a Pittsburgh fan and got the jersey because Hood was the first pick the defending champion Steelers made in this year’s draft.

Interesting, though, that he chose the day of the Missouri – Nevada game to wear the jersey.
