Jim Leavitt Runs a Faster 40 Than Me

Let’s be fair though, it doesn’t take much to beat an old codger like myself at a race. I don’t know what the appeal is but for some reason watching old men race is eye-catching. Maybe it’s like tuning in to see the car wreck — you just want to see the guy pop his ACL or strain a groin. It’s like nothing can go right when men over 45 race. Anyway, South Florida coach Jim Leavitt ran the 40 this week to promote the team’s spring football game. Here’s how it turned out:

The former All-Big 8 athlete at Missouri clocked a 5.72 40 which is nothing to sneeze at. He also had a faster time than one of the 22 students who ran it as well. Students who beat him got a “Faster Than Coach Leavitt” shirt. I actually wouldn’t mind one of those.
