A hard-hitting journalistic ranking of Ole Miss baseball pitcher Doug Nikhazy’s Twitter

Yeeeaaahhh, here tweets the Rooster!

Josh McCoy-Ole Miss Athletics

Ole Miss baseball’s Friday night starter Doug Nikhazy is 12-5 in his short collegiate career, received Perfect Game and Collegiate Baseball’s All American honors as a freshman and posted a 2.35 ERA in 2020. After his sophomore season, he was listed as D1Baseball’s No. 28 ranked sophomore pitcher.

Nikhazy is electric on the rubber. He may not light up the gun with his fastball, but his ability to sneak the heater past hitters and catch them chasing his nasty breaking ball makes the 5-foot-10, 205-pound lefty a dominant ace. And he never shies from showing emotion.

Outside of the diamond, The Rooster is an easy-going, fun-loving, slack-lining Florida boy and a bit of a wildcard. Though his social media presence isn’t that of other Rebel teammates, it is equally, if not more, entertaining.

We took the time to rank his 15 best tweets:

No. 15 - F is for friends who do stuff together

That’s what homies are for.

No. 14 - Relatable now more than ever

Much better than dancing sugarplums, in our opinion.

No. 13 - Worry not about the things out of your control

Especially if it’s #DougDay.

No. 12 - “I’ve been changing channels, I don’t see them on the T.V. shows...”

Shoutout to Jack Johnson.

No. 11 - Facts only

*verbal meme* Chipotle is my life.

No. 10 - Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy

Everyone’s awake now.

No. 9 - If it ain’t about the money

Get paid, young Rooster, get paid.

No. 8 - Merry Merry

If this isn’t a Florida Christmas outfit, what is?

No. 7 - Think about it

Every good pitcher has a maniacal side to him, that’s just facts.

No. 6 - #hecatchesbigfish

Peep the USA baseball hat. Talk about foreshadowing!

No. 5 - Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, we sing this song to pump you up

If you have not had this ice cream, get yourself to the nearest frozen aisle ASAP.

No. 4 - Watch him whip

You did, Doug.

No. 3 - The Rebel Alliance’s fearless leader

Other people may have different thoughts about her hair, but the point is taken. Shoutout to the Pillsbury Doughboy.

No. 2 - A debate as old as time

Turtle or snail? Comment below!

No. 1 - Yes.

We agree. We think.
