yep. i remember that people talked a lot about his taletn and potentialm but the thing that had people doubting him was his drive. i heard people familiar with ole miss describing hardy as just a wierd guy.
it sounded to me like a high maintenence guy with a high upside that we ay have tapped into. the key is keeping him motivated and driven.
being weird doesn't imply he has no ambition or drive.. no one told him to gain weight to help improve his craft.. he did that. give him all the credit.
