Drivers on the Ole Miss campus will have to take their foot off the gas pedals thanks to one Elisha Nelson Manning.
The two-time Super Bowl MVP was honored by his alma mater this last weekend when the speed limit on a road near the school's football stadium was changed to 10 mph, a nod to Manning's jersey number. Other parts of campus have an 18 mph speed limit in honor of Eli's dad, Archie.
Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork posted a picture of the new sign on his Twitter account:
Look at how much concrete they poured around the base of that sign pole. Rebel faithful must have an inverse degree of respect for the sanctity of traffic signs than they do love for the Manning family.
At least Manning gets respect in his college town. As he joked to an audience in Oxford, he's not getting it in New York.
"[The Giants] just won a championship yet I'm still the third most-talked-about quarterback in my own city," he said.
