    Try telling this to John Walsh or the parents of that college girl who was murdered up in Minnesota (or was it North Dakota?) by the guy who had just gotten out of prison for rape.

      Bob, anecdotal anomalies aren't the same as statistical confirmation.

        Glad to see someone mentioned Jeff Nelson; anyone at Oregon when Nelson was a frosh know what happened to him?? By any standard 8:36.3 25 years ago is quite a performance.... A friend of mine who went to the U of O when Nelson was there recalled seeing him walking home from a party VERY late one night, apparently stoned, carrying a bottle of Coca-Cola... sad. Always have been curious about him.

          I would have to say Clinton Davis.He was an incredible sprinter who disappeared after high school.He could have been the first Michael Johnson.

            Henry Thomas. He could have been the greatest 200-400 man of all time. He had as much raw talent as Michael Johnson.

                I'll offer up a name not mentioned yet (that I saw).... Roy Martin.

                Also how about Troutman or Falcon.

                    Roy Martin at least ran in an Olympics. That fact, in and of itself, places him far ahead of the likes of Nelloms.

                      As for Clinton Davis, he broke both legs below the knee in an auto accident in his first year out of high school.

                          No Name, now I'm confused. Didn't Roy finish fourth in the 200 at the OT? Wouldn't that have made him only an alternate? I honestly can't remember.

                            I'm sorry to hear about that. He coulda been a contendah.

                              Their are twisted people all over who for what ever reason believe they can come up by becoming associated with a others, but unfortunately, when the other sides becomes aware of what 's really happening and decides its not worth risking their livelihood, then certain people go to great extremes to bribe them.

                                I'm pretty sure Martin ran in Seoul - however, my memory may be playing tricks on me. I will check this and get back to you.
