I'll take a crack as a non-player:
Strongest Player: Cullen Bryant
Fastest Player: Cliff Branch
Best Athlete: Kordell
Toughest: Bad Dude
Meanest: see above
Funniest: no idea - the Cone Brothers?
Strongest: Clint Moore
Fastest: Rae Caruth
Best Athlete: Michael Westbrook
Tougest: Greg Biekert
Meanest: Chris Naole
Funniest: Matt Russell
Just my take from being an avid follower for 25 years:
Strongest Player: Joe Garten
Fastest Player: Ben Kelly
Best Athlete: Mike Pritchard
Toughest: Ryan Walters
Meanest: Thaddeus Washington (perhaps also "Craziest" as well)
Funniest: George Hypolite
I wonder if Jeremy Bloom could have kept up with Branch and Carruth. James Kidd had great wheels to as did Ced Cormier before his injury.
I used to see Westbrook play BB at the student center. Dude was a freak!
Hard to argue against Rae Carruth for being the fastest...
Tim Rosga was a badass. I remember him body slamming a teammate for stealing his helmet before practice. It was pretty funny. Rosga was from Minnesota i think. His whole family were wrestlers. I doubt the dude that ****ed with him ever forgot that little tidbit.
I wish our current Buffaloes had that kind of speed.
You forgot one.
Craziest: South (R.I.P)
It was Steve, Tim was his younger brother. Played at Wisconsin. Steve was my roomy as a Freshman.
I always get his name mixed up. :lol: Thanks Wyo.
We're getting there.
Speedy, Smith and Scott are up there. I heard Polk is a burner as well.
And think about tight ends at that speed also! Damn, and Lepsis ended up being an offensive linemen in NFL...probably couldn't still run a 4.6 then, but that is great speed.
And we are on our way there, we just need guys with that type of speed and then everyone else with almost that type of speed. :smile2: Asking a little much?
Solder ran a 4.7 recently. Not too shabby.
Meanist: Andre Gurode, I remember him knocking a Nebraska player from the goal line to the back of the end zone on one of CU's touchdowns when Brown ran wild.
I wasnt on the field but a good friend of mine told me how fast Ben Kelly was. Shaud Williams played at Tech then Alabama. He told me he never played against a faster player and he played in the nfl for a few years. Reason I say this is, he tore our ass up as a true frosh, 232 i think. Shaud said he was 10 yards in front of him and, before he made the next 10, Kelly was there. He played in the SEC for 2 years and said he never saw no one that could run like that. fwiw.
Funniest: ALFRED WILLIAMS
I did, and I agree. Feb 23 is 4 years. Crazy
I knew A.G. and Big Vic when I was in college off the field they were two real nice guys, bailed me out of a fight once too.
Meanist: Andre Gurode < Chris Naole....and it isn't even close.
Andre is a very nic guy....strong as an Ox, but very nice. You try to avoid Naole when you see him in a hallway.
What about the rest BC?
I'll answer a few of them....but I'll give options
Strongest Player: Tyler Brayton in the weightroom, Gurode on the Field
Best Athlete: Big, Hannibal Navies; Small, Ben Kelly
Toughest: Justin Bannan
Funniest: Damen Wheeler
What's Hannibal up to these days, any idea?
Thanks Smartass. I figured I would ask someone that knows the guy personally.
:lol: He is pretty much focused on his Foundation.
Jesus ****. Even Gateway doesn't **** up the quote function that badly.
