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.
McGuffie was the first high school player I saw to hurdle a defender, and I have been on the high school scene of watching playoff and state championship teams since Thurman Thomas' heyday.
I can imagine that care would be exercised because that crap is humiliating. He ran a hurdle on one of my students during the playoffs and I wasn't about to further the pain by mentioning McGuffie or anything other than congrats for a great season.
