"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Lets not get carried away with Taco's strength. These are self reported weight room numbers, not reps counted at the combine or a pro day.
Good for Taco, but I ran a 4.3 in high school too.....
True, but what reason would he have to lie? I mean, if he didn't actually do that, I imagine his teammates would call him out on it. And staffs usually do these kind of benchmark measurements like bench, squat, 40 time, etc before camps start to measure progress. I would imagine that it was overseen by the S&C staff to ensure it was done properly and safely.
In high school is the key word here. Taco is working out in UMs weight room, monitored by the S&C coach. Now it's possible taco may have short armed some, meaning not going full extension, and perhaps those wouldn't count on pro day but if he posted that, even 20-22, let alone tacos number is impressive. He has always given me the impression of being a freak of an athlete, like JPP type of guy that's long, fast, agile, and strong.

love the hate for the green and white
Taco has really lomg arms not suitable for benching njmbers I might add as well. I think its signkfact because its shows that he is putting in work. . Maybe his fundamental won't be tbere to contribute rhis year, but I'd be realky surprised if its strength and conditioning that held him back
Clearly the MAC level recruit OSU claimed
lol, JJ McGrath is so awesome
Glad to have his as a Wolverine but he sure does talk alot on twitter. Possible sour grapes for MSU not offering?
That's IT!!! Who's gonna help me throw in some cash to get Kyle a bigger phone with bigger keys ?!?!!?!?
Yeah its terrible! I did get a new phone, the galaxy 3, but I'm always on the go go go. So I never really read what I write. Maybe I should turn on spell check thingy.
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've got the S3 also .. and the spell check thingie has gotten me in more trouble than its helped. I guess we'll just have to accept you for your lack of proper grammar!
Yeah, I'm generally driving, or holding a baby, or working....or drinking!
I'm glad that's an "or" not an "and."
I wouldn't necessarely rule that out
I would be legitimately impressed if you could work, hold your baby, drive, and drink all at the same time.
Impressed and a bit horrified.
Its also possible he was using a nautilus machine in the ccrb. He did afterall tweet a pic if himself last year benching on a smith machine, not something a serious lifter would do.
He is on campus though, they start spring ball tomorrow
Doesnt mean he isnt working out in the ccrb. I used to see football players in there all the time.

This is true. Two weeks ago Desmond Morgan was lifting in there. Last week I saw Trey Burke lifting there as well. I couldn't begin to explain why, but some athletes frequent the ccrb.

Wormley at 290!
Some of the linebackers didn't gain the weight I had hoped they would. Also Butt is only 231 and funchess 228.
Man I wish Terry Richardson would gain some damn weight!
