  • USC vs. Florida

    from a point of view of one who has played at both schools:

    Some thoughts.

    a. Demps is not the fastest player ever. He does have the best 100m time, but I think we all know that Bob Hayes is the fastest who ever played.
    b. Demps is not even the fastest player at UF. When you put on the helmet, pads and cleats, Harvin is faster and James and Rainey are just as fast.
    c. Moody has an agenda when he says UF would beat SC. He felt disrespected at SC. The irony is that he's not a starter at UF, but his loyalty to his NEW team is evident.
    d. Team speed does not ALWAYS win the game. There has to be good schemes in place. Carroll is the master of that.
    e. Utah, Texas and SC have as much right to claim they're #1 right now, as UF and OK. Unless there's a blowout in Thursday's game, there will be a renewed hue and cry about the BCS's inability to resolve the D1 problem. As I see it, the only benefit to the BCS formula is that if and when there is an 8-team playoff, the formula has a high degree of probabilty of getting the right teams in the mix. There will still be gripes about the #5-8 teams, but oh well, this is as close as D1 would ever get to crowning a true NatChamp.

      I submit that even with a four-team playoff, you'd rarely, if ever, leave out the best team.

        6. Utah

          Rocket Ismail was faster than Demps and Hayes with a football under his arm. Fastest player I've ever seen in a football situation on a football field. Could cut at full speed.

            D'oh! You just squandered all your football credibility there! Ismail was indeed probably quicker (2-step acceleraion/maneuverability than Bullet - but there's NO way he was faster - flat-out. Tell them both to go long from their own 10-yard line and see who gets to the other end-zone first.

              You missed the point. Did I not say..."football situation"..? Obviously Bullet Bob Hayes smokes Rocket Ismail in a 40.50.60. whatever. I'm talking about football not a foot race...ok? Ismail was faster in and out of cuts, he got up to speed faster and was by far the better runner after the catch.

              Trust me on this one..ok? Yes I saw the Bullet play many times, even saw him play in college. He wasn't all that 'until" he got behind somebody. While Ismail was more elusive and quicker.

                  Sanders had incredible agility and elusiveness. He however didn't possess blinding speed, Ismail did to go along with agility/elusiveness.

                    With that criteria you have to consider Deion in this discussion, and even Bo.

                        SEC 2-0 against the Big 12. Even on a down year for the SEC.
