And from Dave Van Halanger...

“Our players have worked extremely hard this year, and we are really proud of them and all of the effort they have given to our program," said Dave Van Halanger, director of strength and conditioning. "We hope their hard work and effort in the weight room and during this testing period can help make for a great year. We hope that it gives them great confidence to springboard us into a great 2010 season.”

Update: Maybe this will clear up some of the discussion. Here's the explanation on the 40 times from the school:

40-yard dash: A measure of linear speed. The players will sprint 40 yards as fast as they can. They are timed from their initial movement through the finish line. Each player is timed by four different coaches. Each player gets two attempts, with their best time recorded.

Those numbers are insane. Especially for some of our non-skill positions. I wonder how we stack up to other schools such as Bama or Fla? Would it be fair to make the S&C argument based off these numbers? My guess is no...We have the horses to compete, if not dominate almost any team out there. Coaches need to let these boys play wide open. Based on what's in store after this offseason, it looks like the coaches are wanting to make that happen.

I did expect to see some better speed numbers from Jakar Hamilton...

Surprised at A Murray's time at 4.5 40yd dash. It's close to Logan Greys. I think Murray has come down 3/10ths of a second since arriving in Athens.

Quickest. Stopwatches. Ever.

Kevin said...

regardless of the validity of the stop watch, in comparison to some other players - are you serious w/ c. washington's 40?


damn.

Who is Luis Capelle? He put up amazing numbers in the events that are most likely legitimate.

Seems like a helluva athlete for a walk-on.

Ryan said...

Wonder what the 40 times would be on laser? So much un/intentional bias with hand held stopwatches...

I saw Branden Smith on that reversal against *can't remember* early in the season last year and no way he's the 3rd or 4th fastest guy on the team... Seriously? Why inflate numbers like this? It doesn't make us look good; it makes us look silly.

With all the money in college football, you'd think someone could afford a laser.
