Ball So Hard University Alum 'Hacksaw' Is Better Known As Terrell Suggs (VIDEO)

You may know him as "Terrell Suggs" but the Baltimore Ravens' veteran linebacker, apparently, matriculated at Ball So Hard University under the name "Hacksaw."

This alias and alma mater were mentioned during the recorded player introductions played during the first quarter of the NFL opener between the Hacksaw's Ravens and the Denver Broncos on NBC. Longtime fans of Suggs -- or Hacksaw or Sizzle -- will know this isn't the first time that he's dropped a reference to Ball So Hard University.

"A lot of guys on this team attended Ball So Hard University, including myself," Suggs told The Baltimore Sun after a similar reference in 2011. "The dean of students and president of the school is actually Shawn Carter."

As indicated by the stature of Carter -- who you may know as Jay Z -- at BSHU, Suggs picked up the phrase from the song "Ni**as in Paris" off the "Watch The Throne" album.
