    Unimpresed with Bush's 40. Say it converts to a 4.45-4.5 on grass. Means he doesn't have Bennett type sprinter's speed. Say it could be VY at #1 trade down or not. Consider the source, but it's funny given all the derision VY received for their Wonderlic story.

    Oh I think it's funny that they put more faith in a hand timed run that was provided by an anonimous scout than the electronic device that accounted for the fast track. Then went on to make it seem slower by adding their own equations. I wonders why they didn't also put in the percentage of stadiums that still actually have grass.

    I'm sure that someone who hand timed Bush clocked him at 5.5 also. Whenever you hand time someone there is risk of error.

    I will go by the electronic time on this one.

    That makes no sense. Almost all college fields are grass and he hasn't had any issues. At South Bend the grass was 2 or 3 inches high and he was still blazing fast.

    I think ProFootball Talk is just trying to create some controversy.

    Who ever wrote that article should add two points to his IQ and then he could compete with a carrot.

    Geeezz Monarch, I'm sorry to see that new medication isn't working out to well. Try another brand, maybe that will bring reality into focus for you.

    Well, that is the same site that reported Parcell's retired on Friday. How did that work for you. However, they are also the group that first reported VY's amazing six on the Wonderlic...so they must be credible!

    So we aren't supposed to believe an electronically timed 40 time done by a well respected timing company that also does the Nike Camps, but we are supposed to believe an anonymous scout who claimed to have hand timed him on a "fast surface" at 4.4?

    Was this written by Major Adams or Vince Young?

    The number only matters in terms of how it compares to other who ran under the same conditions. If I believe the numbers from the other players, then Bush is still significantly faster than anyone else who ran at USC today. That is what is or isn't important, not that its 4.38 or 4.45.

    As it has been said before we did not need to see his 40 time to know that he is football fast. Much ado about nothing.

    The only numbers I care about are the number of times guys have caught him from behind. Bush will be a Texan. That's a Porky 100% certified take it to the bank or your money back guarantee. :redtowel:
