Posted in response to an OM fan saying that starting bulldog QB Wesley Carroll would be running for his life in the egg bowl

"With 4.5 speed, I don't think I....would want to flush Wesley Carroll out of the pocket. And I doubt very seriously any of the Rebel lineman are fast enough to catch him. Of course, they're saying Powe can outrun anybody on their defense including the cornerbacks....Go figure! "

Really? Are we seriously going to do this? 4.5 speed? You know who runs slower than a 4.5? Chad Bumphis, Dennis Thames, and a million other "fast" wide receivers.

If Wesley Carroll runs a 4.5, Sylvester Croom is an idiot for not encouraging him to run more often. Last season, he had 47 attempts for 67 yards. Maybe that's why Croom didn't encourage him to run. Maybe it's because he's slow...

I guess Wesley Carroll is faster than this guy, this guy, this guy and THIS GUY.

I guess we'll just have to see whether Ole Miss has a defensive line that is as fast as a slow white guy a quarterback with insanely deceptive speed.

Honestly, if Wesley Carroll has 4.5 speed, then Viciente DeLoach must run a 4.4 or 4.3, because he sacked Carroll in the first quarter of the egg bowl for a loss of ten yards. If it had been two or three yards, that wouldn't prove anything, but ten yards means that Carroll was running away from DeLoach and just couldn't get away.

P.S. I hear that Jevan Snead runs a 4.2. I mean, some wesbite printed it, so it HAS to be true.

P.P.S. Hunter Miller, the 6'2 QB that we offered to gray shirt ran a 4.3 or 4.4 according to Yancy. Because we offered to gray shirt him and because very few people are that fast, I find myself in doubt of that number...

Post Post Post Scriptum from Ivory Tower: Wesley Carroll is apparently not quite adequate/deceptively speedy enough to avoid the Schaeffer-esque fate of being seriously challenged by a walk-on.
