More 40 yard dash nonsense

At the University of Florida, they’re so fast, they’re pulling 37 year old accountants out of the stands that can run 4.53 40s.

    This guy is obsession with speed is distrubing. I’m beginning to think that he never won a race in his whole life. Speaking of obsession, I here ESPN is televising the UF spring game. I also read that they are auctioning off opportunities to catch a pass from….gulp…..TIM TEBOW!!!

    Senator, I’ve been meaning to ask you in what context did Dave Johnson make that comment in your “Quote of the Day”. I can’t tell if he is taking a shot at the SEC or what.

    “Thompson – who once clocked a 4.28 at a combine in high school” . Really, a combine in high school. If the kid ran a 4.28-40 why isn’t he in China?
    My brother has been a high school football coach for about 20 years and he laughs when he hears these 40 times. He says when these kids are running the 40 no one starts them they start on their own. That’s probably worth 2 tenths of a second in itself. Then you have about 6 coaches standing at the end of the line with stop watches. They all compare times and take the best one. They are trying to get the kid a scholarship and some attention to their school. The majority of these 40 times are erroneous at best.


  5. TD, the comment wasn’t a shot. He was talking about how tough it was to coach in the SEC.
