Pair gh and brutal w/ Carlos and Smith and San José State still wins!

OK, seriously, for SJS first leg insert Billy Gaines (or even Kirk Clayton) and that's your winner.

Only other anomaly is Florida, which is clearly the weak link and is only the 10th best on that list.

Believe me I thought of both Gaines 9.3 and Clayton 9.3 but Davis did run a 9.2....right?

Then there's Ron Whitaker and his 10.0 and of course Ray Norton 9.3. Why not Dennis Johnson 9.3?
And even Ken Thomas and his 10.0.

I think you left off a team, the houston 4x1 would be pretty solid. Lewis, Burrel, and a few names that escape my memory at the moment, but recall them being pretty solid.

No, Davis was a 9.3 guy, inferior to the 10.1s of Gaines and Clayton. But in talking these hypothetical things, one has to do more than just add up PRs. Gaines and Clayton were both WR-type indoor sprinters, making them perfect leadoff guys for a relay.

But since you later brought up Ray Norton, neither of them now makes the team. Norton, Smith, Smith & Carlos, nobody touches them.

Great thread, Brutal.

Just because the 1967 version of McCulloch to Kuller to . . . "Killer" . . . to Miller ran an eye-popping 38.6, one must give the nod to the the prophylatics --- sorry, the Trojans.

Trojans over Spartans in an California final.

Texas Southern third.

Pretty sure you've got to include the GaTech team ahead of many of these.

GaTech (Derek Mills, Derrick Adkins, Antonio McKay, Angelo Taylor)

You've got a 44.13 guy in Mills, former WR indoors in McKay, and the last 2 Oly golds in 400 hurdles. Plus Taylor ran 43.9 at NCAAs, that doesn't happen too often.

Ken Randle should be on the team from USC.

So should Mel Patton, James Gilkes, etc.

If the idea is to assemble one killer 4x100 team, then San Jose State and USC are pretty close.

But for depth, you can't beat the Trojans. It's possible to drum up 3 separate USC 4x100 teams capable of breaking 39 seconds.
