Ran a 7.25 FAT
That's pretty impressive, I'd say that FAT is phat
Has some serious giddy-up
Ok. I'll ask the question- what does FAT stand for?
Lol no worries - Fully Automatic Timing
What I see in the mirror
60 meters isn't run that often by high schoolers, so it is kind of hard to get a feel for how fast that is. So to try and convert this to 100 meters, here is a very imperfect method of conversion.
So, using that formula, if we multiply 7.25 times 1.53, we get 11.09 for 100 meters.
Not many states have indoor track.
Clocks In at the 4.4-4.5 range from the online conversions I read...we literally might have a top 25 ncaa track team on the football field
Is it just me or is the speed we’re recruting at an elite level, much more than anything we’ve recruited In the past ...or am I just drinking koolaid?
For reference, they run indoor track in Kentucky and Rondale Moore clocked at 6.89 his senior year.
I’ll take 7.2 any day by our QB
The mid 90s was very fast everywhere. Especially on defense. I would SOOO love to see a punt blocker coming off the edge with the speed of Barron Miles. Our WR at the time were small but incredibly fast.
not making fun, but I almost spit my coffee out.
For comparison, at the Nebraska track meet yesterday, Jaron Woodyard ran a 6.87 in the 60m and is sitting in 5th heading into finals. The leader is at 6.64.
A break down of timing methods and how they have been used in the combine for anyone interested.
The 40 timing of the Combine has come a long way. Until 1990, Hand Held (HH) timing was the method used for the 40. This might explain how Bo Jackson ran an unearthly 4.12 at his combine in 1986. HH has been studied to be consistently faster than other methods. In the 90's, a method called Electronic Timing (ET) was initiated, which uses a HH start but a laser-triggered finish, once the player crosses a beam at the 40 yard mark. For the past 5 combines, a method called Fully Automated Timing (FAT) was used, a method which enabled the time to be displayed on-screen for the home audience to see.
And that 6.87 would put Jaron at #21 in the Big Ten heading into this weekend. A 7.25 would rank #65 in conference. I'll take that in my quarterback, but still, the 40 time is more important.
