  • What college can..........

    ....deal with this fantasy 4x4 relay tean using athletes who ran at a certain school one time or another.......alumni in other words.

    UCLA-A

    Steve Lewis
    Danny Everett
    Wayne Collett
    John Smith

    UCLA-B

    Maxie Parks
    Benny Brown
    Henry Thomas
    Warren Edmonson

    Not a bad 4x2 team.....Marsh Everett Hampton Boldon

    Any takers?

    A lot of teams can beat the B squad. Why? Maxie and Warren will have to run 800s, since Benny's gone and Henry's in the slam.

      I've got an even better question: other than the U.S., what COUNTRY could put together an all-start team that could beat UCLA? Maybe none?

        ......ok then we'll replace Benny and cellmate Henry with...mmm?

        Andre Phillips and Kevin Young both sub 45.0 relayers.

          Guess what? Arizona State could run those UCLA guys to the wire:

          Ulis Williams
          Maurice Peoples
          Herm Frazier
          Henry Carr

          (note members of WR-setting 4x4s Ron Freemans I & II don't make the starting lineup; so ASU is on its way to a good B squad as well)

            ASU could put up a fight no doubt about it I had them in mind.

            I was running....

            Herm Frazier
            Henry Carr
            Maurice Peoples
            Ron Freeman

            ....however. Keep in mind Ulis Williams was just a 45.0 guy.

            ASU B

            Ulis Williams
            Howard Henley
            Tony Darden
            Mal Spence....Jamaican Olympian

            There is another team out there that could hang here...mmmm?

              Do you know the way to San Jose?
              I've been away so long
              I may go wrong and lose my way
              Do you know the way to San Jose
              I'm going back to find some piece of mind San Jose -a
              L. A. is a great big freeway
              Put a hundred down a by a car
              In a week - or maybe two - they'll make you a star
              Weeks turn into years and quickly pass
              And all the stars there never were a parkin' cars and pumpin' gas
              I've got lots of friends in San Jose
              Wo oh oh oh
              Can't wait to get back to San Jose
              Wo oh oh oh
              Do You know the way to San Jose?

                "just a 45-flat guy?!" Anybody can simply add up best times; for a fanciful compilation like this one (or your "best sprinter ever" thread) you've got to do some time-machine transporting and assign relative value to people.

                Ulis Williams was High School Record holder, 2x No. 1 world ranker, etc., etc. Put him in a modern setting and he's gotta be on your team (and better than, say Danny Everett for UCLA).

                  Let me remind everyone that Georgia Tech isn't exactly a long way behind UCLA on the A-T list (3/100ths if I recall correctly).

                  I'll take these 4 from Tech over UCLA's dream team.

                  Antonio McKay
                  Derrick Adkins
                  Derek Mills
                  Angelo Taylor

                    Jose Saint gave us the words to "Do you know the way..." I assume that was his way of suggesting that SJ State (Speed City) fits into this discussion, in which case he must be smoking speed! As in, where's your fourth man, baby?

                    But I would stack up Carlos (45-second relay split as a frosh), Evans and Smith against any other collegiate 3x4 team!

                        Very familiar with Williams and I doubt he'd be better than Everett under any circumstances.

                          That's a great team but they don't beat the Bruins.

                            Not a challenge to the Bruin team, but a tough one that might otherwise be overlooked is Ohio State.

                            1) Butch Reynolds (:43.29)
                            2) Chris Nelloms (:44.3)
                            3) Andrew Pierce (:44.5)
                            4) A) Robert Smith (:45.5)
                            B) Jesse Owens (?, did he ever run a 4 X 400?)

                              hmmmm...... first Henry Thomas, now Chris Nelloms.... I'm smelling the start of a killer all-slammer squad!
