        Rutgers did have a guy named Robert Kerr back in the late 60's who was running 9.5. While he didn't compare to Quow he was someone of note.

        I think I need to drop.."World Class"...and go with..."someone of note". Kerr does hold the school record in the 100yds at Rutgers.

            Did SIU ever have anyone in Ivory Crockett's league?

                Now that Haas and Smith have been brought up, there goes Chuck Smith. I'm learning a few things here, that's always a good thing.

                  SIU also had Mike Kee. No not on a lever with Crockett but he did have enought success to be considered someone of merit. There was also Michael Franks a 400m cat with 10.2? ability.

                  Kent State had Olympian Thomas Jefferson. There was also Orin Richburg and Bobby Cruse.

                  For years it was always..."Golden Wheels" Elbert Dubenion the AFL's fastest man. On the back of his rookie football card it mentions his 9.8 speed. 9.8? He had to have ran faster than that. What was his PR anyway?

                    Michael Kee

                    I didn't know Michael Kee went to SIU. I remember when he was a schoolboy sprint champ in the Greater Boston Area in the mid-70's. I believe my cousin said Kee attended Cambridge Rindge and Latin. Became a security guard (had the speed to chase a perp, too).

                      This from the Southern Ill site...

                      Mike Kee (1976-78) was also a three-time All-American placing in the outdoor 100M three-straight years from 1976 to 78. He also won an amazing nine MVC titles in events including the outdoor 100M (1976-78), the outdoor 200M (1976-78), the indoor 55M (1976, 78) and the indoor 300M (1978). He still ranks among the school's career leaders in various categories

                        Saluki Star

                        That's good to hear, even in retrospect. He was blowing by Eastern Mass. kids as a prep. I remember asking my cousin, a Dual County League indoor sprint champ, if he had encountered Kee at any state meets, and being told that was an entirely different echelon. Funny I didn't hear or read of his NCAA exploits, I followed TAF News in my school library, and big college meets on the tube and through SI (Sports Ilustr., not Southern Illin.- for the humor prone)

                        Gotta be some other "lonely sprinter" candidates though, given how many colleges there are.

                          I first became aware of Kee from his indoor exploits.

                          I can only think of Ira Murchison at Western Michigan but have a feeling there is somebody else.
