Well actually the article I was reading in a hurry quoted SOMEBODY in the day saying he could run a 100 yard dash on a grass football field in mismatched shoes. If he could he much better than I was.
Not out my depth because I'm using fact from the Olympic research as well as the NFL and research from private companies. Somebody told you something and you believed it. Look it up or stay ignorant. No matter how much you want to deny it, there is human reaction time. The reason the Olympic committee was open to auto timing because no matter how which experts they used they would on several occasions get 5 different times from 5 different people. Rarely did they get more than 2 out 5 match. Combine times were slower from 2000 when they went auto. Jim Thorpe was said to run a 100 yard dash in mismatched shoes in 10 flat and if he did then yes we were the same. That isn't that fast especially now.
It's fact. They didn't go 1,2,3 go. It was a gun shot and it is fact as a study so much that it was put into practice. Their was no way in hell these experts you think timed these races defied human ability to offset 2+ reaction time. AGAIN they used these experts you referred to and they were off that much. It is the reason they won't recognize hand timing. If you want to live in that world go ahead. To each his or her own.
While you are trying to pick a fight, I'm just trying to have dialog. My time was hand timed also which pains me to think I wasn't as fast as I thought I was at the time. Their have been only a handful of Americans that ran I the nines. There were 11 Americans running equal to or 1 tenth slower than Owens from the late twenties to the mid forties. Your thinking puts 11 of them with Carl Lewis sixty years later. They were using expert timers when they did the study and smoke guns. It takes 2+ tenths for reaction time which is why they adjust. The study also showed that when timing in a group they were off on average 0.45 seconds. High trained or not you can't over come reaction time. They didn't adjust for the fun of it but because it was proven. When they went to all electronic timing it took 15 years to get back to the hand times. He was probably running 10.4 in reality. I said that with modern tech he probably would get back to 10.2
30 something, Magnum pi, Andy Griffith, Mysterious Ways, Third Watch and Angel.
Spurrier, nothing touches me as much as a good smart ass to the press.
When I said he could run the 100 in 10 flat it was a 100 yds. Sorry, yesterday I was trying to learn Dark Souls 2 while I was responding to you and it is damn frustrating. This morning I had a little time and found out that a study done in the Journal of sports science found that hand timing made the athlete 0.24 seconds faster in a sprint . The Golden book for the NCAA uses this conversion over smoke gun starts hand held timing. The NFL combine study showed 0.22 seconds slower on electronic timing. That is why we hear all the time about our HS kids running 4.3 at home then 4.5 and change at camps. The track on the other hand was interesting. Good hard dirt tracks were just as fast and in some cases faster which is a little bit of a head scratcher but the cinder track was .01 slower. Many athletes agree with the cinder determination. The starting blocks were the most controversial because of too many factors like the power of the athlete's start, how well he was dug in etc. The general idea was 0.05. With moderns shoes it all kind of evens out but that's just my opinion.
It was a typo. I corrected it. We were talking so much about nines that I just plain and simple typed it looking right at 10.
All I can say is my high school had a cinder track and my 100 yds best was 10.1. Most other schools in the OCC had all current tracks and my best was 10.0. It was the same for my team mates. Our 440 relay had the same time. Blocks are in case of slippage or give and it doesn't always happen but you don't want to risk it. Every so often in history someone brings a different gear. Bob Hayes was a gear higher than Owens and Bolt is a gear and a half more than Hayes. It's not to diminish peoples accomplishments for their time. Jim Thorpe ran the 100 in 10 seconds flat in a pair of miss matched street shoes he found in a dumpster on uneven grass. What does that compute to.
They already did this on that sports mechanics about a year ago. They did pole vaulters, swimmers weight lifters etc. The first thing they did was add between 2-3 tenths on the hundred because reaction time and sound. You have to see the smoke first then react. The did frame by frame of runners comparing tapes and found they were actually a little slower than their times because of it. It was the same show the showed Secretariat ran the fastest Preakness of all time. All those other factors would start bring his time down but not near enough to sub 10s. My fastest 40 time was without blocks so I think it's what you train for. He was a great athlete no doubt and ahead of his time.
Won't be without Urban there.
It is mommy that's running things. The reason Clemson stands out is they encouraged Gary to take all his visits. That was refreshing for Mrs. Coney but it didn't make them a favorite. She has made it clear that football and coaching staffs will have little to do with her decision. She said a little while back that their are no favorites and won't be for quite a while. "I want my son to enjoy the process as long as he can before I reel him down and say sit down, this is how it's going to be" So all those crystal balls are meaningless. National signing day we will know. She did go on to say that she can live with him going to school far away. I'm not a gambler but if I were I'd pick Rutgers right now because it is where she has spent the most time and effort and close to mommy. http://sportstalksc.com/index.php/2015/04/06/strecruiting-garys-mom-says-she-and-son-impressed-by-usc-clemson/
It still took time for the smoke to move which would be slower than sound and the reaction time for the timer would still be 2+ tenths. I ran on a cinder track also and my times were not that different. I like Owens as much as anybody but the runners I seen running behind him would have all been close to the 10 second barrier which I really doubt.
The timers were at the end of the track so the time it takes for the sound to travel 300 ft which equals one tenth and 2 tenths reaction time puts him around 9.7 which would be around 10.6 hundred meters. Then he would no doubt start bringing that down with our tracks and shoes. I'd guess about 10.2 maybe. Still damn fast.
You cannot talk with scum fans and expect an intelligent conversation. They are completely off the deep end with Harbaugh. An article up there about Jersey boys made it appear they can pick and choose who they want in Jersey. Some are hoping that Gary doesn't pull a Deshaun Hand and go somewhere else as though he is a sure thing. Some of the others are wondering if Gary can pull Walker there also.
Being accountable is not on the menu there.
The boards up north are lit up there following an article how they have now taken over Jersey. They have Gary wrapped tight and 17 and 18 are theirs for the taking. They hope that Gary doesn't pull a Deshaun Hand and go somewhere else. He has no favorites right now and they are afraid he will flip. WOW
Reading comments from up there, They really do believe Harbaugh can take anyone and make a superstar with his coaching ability.
If I can't get into OSU I'm looking at MSU.
Claims his brother and him know what each want and no influence to follow him to ND. We will see but it appears to be an old fashion big ten battle.
Don't disagree but conference champions was what they were talking about being not being automatic. I don't really understand why both sides were so firmly against that.
You don't suppose he was you know who?
I just wanted to see if all his comments were like the one I saw.
