  • Talking about Bill Woodhouse.......

    ....got me thinking about schools that had two stud sprinters there at the same time like ACU did with Woodhouse and the great Bobby Morrow. I am talking 100/200.

    How about....

    Cal...Eddie Hart, Isacc Curtis
    Alabama....Calvin Smith, Emmitt King
    San Jose State....Ray Norton, Bobby Poynter
    San Jose State....Ronnie Ray Smith, John Carlos

    So who else we got?

      I can remember watching Emmitt King win an indoor short dash and the post race interview included a statement by Emmitt that he had gained 20lbs the year before and he had to slim down to get back into form. Think about it

        Yep, always curious about who else was on their 4x1 team.

          Hard to put on 20 pounds in a year....hmmmm?

          Would have liked to have seen him run the 200m I have no doubts it would have helped his overall game.

          Surprised Alabama is as sprint poor as they are being in the sprint rich SEC. They also had James Mallard but that's about it.

                  "San Jose State....Ronnie Ray Smith, John Carlos"

                  No overlap with Tommie Smith?

                    Tommie Smith was there a little before those two showed up. When Tommie was there he ran with..

                    Lee Evans
                    Wayne Herman
                    Bob Talmadge
                    Ken Shakelford

                    Carlos ran on a stud NCAA winning 4x1 team of...

                    Sam Davis (Cali state JC 100m champ, 10.1PR)
                    Kirk Clayton 9.3
                    Ronnie Ray Smith 9.9WR

                    I guess we could also add Jamaican Dennis Johnson and Willie Williams a 9.4/46.5ish

                    From the late 50's to the early 70's San Jose really was "Speed City".

                    There was also Nigerian Jimmy Omegemi, Bill Gaines, Bob Griffen, Ron Whitaker and Ken Thomas.
