Perhaps, hurdles won't work in college, yet it will be interesting to see how McGuffie's talents will translate into the next level.
There's a slight difference between running by people (VY) and hurdling linebackers (McGuffie). How ofter do you see people get hurdled in college? Players are bigger and faster, and teams are coached better to prevent 1 on1 match ups.
I'm not saying that he's going to bust or anything, it should be fun to see how he does in the Big-10, but I can easily imgaine him trying to hurdle somebody in practice and either a) getting light up bya defender or b) getting a massive ass chewing by the coashes. That's all; whiole that and I can't remember the last time I saw somebody hrudle defenders so much in a series of highlight clips.
