Ryan, one of our readers, had been captivated by the Girl In The Hat while watching BYU-Ole Miss the other day—so much so that he asked us to assemble the I-Team to learn her identity. And last night, we went to work.
But, much like the recent case involving Brewers Girl (aka, Front Row Amy), Ole Miss Hat Girl was a fairly easy one for the intrepid work of the I-Team. Many of you have emailed to graciously inform us that she is none other than Hanna Nutt, who is pictured above with her twin sister, Hailey. And, lo, the girls happen to be the daughters of Rebels head coach Houston Nutt, and this is not their first brush with fame on Deadspin (as Ole Miss alum Peter made certain to remind us).
Thank you, I-Team. And there you go, Ryan; the girl of your dreams indeed is in Oxford. You're free to try to reach her via the Ole Miss athletic office, though I wouldn't necessarily recommend pursuing that line of inquiry.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Hickey's on his way.
