Star is an animal.
I just don't get it. Why not give full credit - Star did "over 30"
reps. True. But how many others did over 30? I would venture - many. But
Star did 38. That tied for the most number of reps by any (?) defensive lineman
(?) at the combines! Quite a difference in reporting! Also Dunn did a sub 4.4
in the forty. True. But again how many did that. Although I have not seen a
definitive time - the times I have seen (in the 4.1+ second range) are among the
fastest in the nation for draft prospects. Way to go to minimize
"Utah's Reggie Dunn impressed scouts by running a personal best 4.22 in
the forty."If that time is official his "personal" best
is also an NFL record. Nice job Reggie!
As a BYU fan, I can't wait to see Star tear up the NFL. Good Luck Star!!
With another #1 draft pick, several more guys drafted, this will take the number
of guys recruited by Whittingham and drafted over 20.Gary Anderson
had a 1 or 2.Bronco 0.That's right. Bronco has yet
to RECRUIT and have DRAFTED a single guy.Whittingham has over 20.Saban has over 20.Les Miles has over 20.Steve Spurrier has over
20.Chris Peterson has over 20.Bronco? 0The future of
football in Utah,Is UTAH.Go make those tens of millions
Chris B You amaze me. Why do you even feel the need to mention BYU
on a ute article?! Are you that insecure? If you really had moved on you
wouldn't even mention us. I've asked this before but you never answer.
Why the hatred towards us? Anyways good luck Star! I will be rooting
for you! Good luck to all the utes trying hard to make it. Doesn't matter
you recruited you! Go Utes! Go Aggies! Go COUGARS!!!!
Chris B, what are you using as your defintion of "drafted by"?
Wookie,I re-read my post an I don't see where I said
"drafted by". So I would love to respond but you will have to make
sense first. I would argue part of a good coaches job is to recruit
kids and help them get drafted. I am simply pointing out that whittingam has a
great record at recruiting kids and developing them to the point they get
drafted. Gary Anderson did the best with the little time he had obviously. Just
reminding byu fans their coach has yet to have a single kid he has recruited
been drafted. Again, please show me where I said "drafted
by" an I would love to respond.Go get that money star!
Chris BWith all of this talent why did the Utes stay home for the
holidays? Is getting these guys to the NFL more important than
winning college games?
@ChrisAs a Utah fan i think you are just embarrassing the Utah
program and us as Utah fans. Take your negativity elsewhere
Best of everything to STAR and all of the Utes in the draft.Chris,
keep doing what you do. I've got your back.Go Utes!
I love Star, BOTH on-AND-off the field....He deserves everything positive coming
his way, everything.To byu fan talking bowl games, check it out--UTAH missing their 1st bowl game since '02 says alot about what
level our program is on--1st bowl game missed since '02--WOW....In this
current BCS Era ['98-Current], UTAH and byu both have reached 11 bowl
games....However, while byu is a staggering 6-5, UTAH has struggled to achieve a
10-1 mark, including 2 BCS Bowl Games and 2 resounding BCS Bowl Game victories,
Top-2/-4 finishes, 2 undefeated seasons, brutally curb-stomping byu
multiple-years, BCS-Status, etc.Remember the following--3 straight,
4 of 5, 8 of 11 and the overall record by a landslide, 56-34-4=Owned.
Star is the Man. What a great player, and a great person. How 'bout a 4.2
by Reggie Dunn? Holly Cow that's moving. I hope the best to all the Utes
moving to the NFL. Something tells me this years class will do just fine.
If star's heart is truly fine then he will be a stud in the NFL. He is so
big and strong that he is going to demand double teams for the next 10 years.
Hopefully it works out for him and his health allows it.
Article quote: "All-America return specialist Reggie Dunn headlined a group
of 22 former Utes participating in Pro Day. He ran a personal-best 4.22 in the
40."A 4.22?Now THAT is SMOKIN' in anyone's
@BleedCougarBlueNo chance he ran those times for real, hand held
times are not accurate. I'm sure he ran great times but no chance he ran
DuckhunterNFL combines have used electronic timing for a number of
years. It involves a hand timed start, but an electronic (laser) recorded
finish. That time is typically .01 to .02 faster than an all electronic time.
Not perfect, but it does allow for more accurate comparison of the athletes.
@ sammygLack of execution. And no.@ DuckhunterReggie's official times were 4.22 and 4.26. I don't know if he will
be drafted, but those are still ridiculous times; hand held or not.
@fenderThis wasn't an NFL combine, it was a pro day at utah and
these were hand held times. I believe he ran fast times, I do not believe he ran
@duckhunter... there is a chance he ran those times for real. It is entirely
possible that he is the fastest player in the draft. What about those times
make them impossible? I'm not saying those times are 100% accurate, but
you can't tell me with a straight face that there is "No chance."
Unless you are delusional of course.
@unreasonableuteHere are the fastest times ever record in the 40
yard dash since the implementation of electronic timing.Chris
Johnson 2008 RB 4.24 Marquise Goodwin 2013 WR 4.27 Jerome Mathis
2005 WR 4.28 Jacoby Ford 2010 WR 4.28 DeMarcus Van Dyke 2011 CB 4.28
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie 2008 CB 4.29 Stanford Routt 2005 CB 4.29
Trindon Holliday 2010 WR 4.29 Fabian Washington 2005 CB 4.29 That is with the benefit of doing it electronically. Dunn's times
WERE NOT done electronically, they were done by hand held stop watch. In short I
am sure he is very fast but no I do not believe he ran those times for real.
Frankly almost no one can run that fast.
AZUTE1To Utah fans boasting about Utah's "bowl
success":If Utah's bowl teams had really been as successful
as you pretend they were, why haven't the Utes managed to crack the AP Poll
more than FIVE times during Utah's entire history - your big brother has
finished in the AP Top 25 SEVENTEEN times.Top 25 Finishes during the
Bronco/Kyle eraBronco - FIVEKyle - threeTop 15
FinishesBronco - THREEKyle - oneKyle had one great year
in 2008 and very little before or since.It's laughable that a
team with one of the projected top picks in the upcoming draft, and with all of
those other draft picks that Naval is constantly beating his chest about,
couldn't even beat a lowly WAC team to qualify for a bowl.Losing/bowl-less seasonsBronco - NONEKyle - oneLosses
to 10-loss teamsBronco - noneKyle - TWOWith a couple of
lucky wins 2010 and 2012, Kyle took a slim 3-5 head-to-head lead, but Kyle
trails Bronco in overall wins, in conference championships, in bowl games, and
in Top 25 finishes.
@TFF""Utah's Reggie Dunn impressed scouts by running a
personal best 4.22 in the forty."If that time is official his
"personal" best is also an NFL record. Nice job Reggie!"Since when has any time coming from Utah ever been "official"?
Handheld stopwatch times done by a players own school are about as reliable as
heights of players listed in the media guide. At Utah 40 times get fudged even
worse.Handheld stopwatch times in the 40 can be off by as much as
.27 seconds. This potentially puts Dunn's personal best in the 4.4 range,
which is still outstanding.Utah's major league obsession with
40 times and the need they feel to fudge them in order to feel better about
themselves reminds me of playing high school basketball and how badly they
fudged the height of players in the media guide trying to appear bigger and
taller. I was 6'5 1/4" and yet they listed me 6'7". That level of insecurity in people makes me laugh, but it's really sad
and pathetic when you think about it. Are we going to hear next that Star ran a
@Sammyg"With all of this talent why did the Utes stay home for the
holidays? Is getting these guys to the NFL more important than
winning college games?"It's certainly a sign that Kyle is
out of his league coaching in the Pac12. When you take a step back and look at
the trend since the 2008 season the utes are definitely trending downward. Most people (except ute fans) predicted Utah would settle in somewhere
near the bottom of the Pac12. "Become the next Wash St" was a common
prediction I read. It looks to be coming true.This next season
figures to plummet the program even further with Stanford and Oregon on the
schedule. Early pre-season forecasts are calling for the utes to finish 3-9
around (give or take a game).if Kyle's still cranking out NFL
talent but can't get them to play competitively it will certainly look like
he's in over his head. I wonder how many 3-9 seasons it will take for ute
fans to re-assess their feelings whether the move to the Pac12 was a good one
after all. BCS Bowls vs last place Pac12 finishes?
Wow. Reggie Dunn is the fastest human on earth! 4.22. He and his
agent are also selling ocean-front property in Arizona....Good luck
to Star. He'll tear it up in the draft now that the diagnosis has been
downgraded to non-chronic status.
@Hegdehog"Are we going to hear next that Star ran a 4.35
forty?"Almost. naval tried to tell us he ran 4.65 when the truth
is he ran about a 5.3, that's only almost a second faster than the
