yeah yeah, so a team from the state of florida has guys that can run....that has never happened!! give the ball to Antone Smith and see how many TD's he can score...its called percentages....this is not a new concept in college football. these guys are good and fast, but to think they have Harvin type skills is ridiculous. neither of them and both of them cannot carry the UF offense like Percy did/does. he is a class above them. when brantley or newton has rainey, demps, and thompson....the offense will be anemic. like no other teams have guys that can run a 4.3?? as far as track goes....good luck beating FSU-3 time defending champ and LSU with holliday and richard thompson in the 100....demps will be up there, but until he beats walter dix or thompson, there isn't much room at the top for him....

These guys run below 4.3, and although teams have people that can do that, not a lot of teams have 2-3 guys on offense that can. And you right, they're not as good as Harvin, there aren't many players in college football who are, but NO ONE is saying they are, so I'm not sure why you even brought that up. But you do prove one point, Harvin when healthy is one of, if not, the best athletes in college football, then you add on all these other pieces, and that equals a VERY POWERFUL offense. If I were you, I'd quit worrying about track, and start worrying about losing your 5th straight game to the Gators.
