    "Jamaal Charles added 10 points for the Horns with a 10.23 in the 100 meters. It was Texas' third victory in the 100 meters at the Big 12 Championships and its first win since 2000. Charles was also the top qualifier in the 200 meters but with the meet in hand, he decided to scratch."

    This guy really can fly, 10.23 is very impressive. For comparsions, Reggie Bush's fastest 100 was something in the 10.4s.

    They said that about AP. He's only a SOPHMORE, everyone will get to see a lot more of him. He ran a 4.3 fourty this offseason, and has a 36in vertical with two 80lb dumbells in his hands.

    I thought it was that he could jump on to a 36 inch box not that he had a 36 inch vert? still impressive though.

    i didn't realize charles was that fast. does anyone know when the NCAAs are cause i would like to see jamaal against Xavier Carter to see who the fastest football player in the country is?

    Carter is the fastest player in the country and it's really not even close.

    I love Jamaal. I had a post here around the Rose Bowl where I posted Jamaal's stats with Bush's freshman stats. Jamaal had a higher ypc and more yards. The future is bright for that young man.

    that good news i didn't know that X man broke the record. yes he is fast but i think that he is more of a 200 400 guy and is just now running the 100 in college. hopefully he gets to run it at the NCAA but i think he is only going to be able to run two of them because they are back to back. i don't think ginn is faster (he is a very good hurdles guy) but he does have better lateral movement.

    Running the 100m doesn't directly relate to football speed (you'll rarely run that distance without any cuts). If anything, the hurdles are more relevant because they focus on pure speed mixed with explosiveness and agility.

    Looks like UT has another great running back in the making. I hope the best for him, but I also hope he doesn't fall into the pits that have taken Ricky and Cedric.
