    How fast is Jantz

    I tried looking up 40 times or old track times and got nothing. His legs have no churn. This is not another QB starting thread, I legitimately want to know if he could run a sub 11 second 100M dash.

    Re: How fast is Jantz

    Probably around 4.6 or 4.7 is my guess. Closer to 4.7.


    It's all snark from here on out

    That would be a no.

    Steele Jantz is fast. To give you a reference point, he is somewhere between a snake and a mongoose... and a panther.

    Re: How fast is Jantz

    Jantz is pretty darn fast, don't know the speed, but he has gotten out of a lot of tight spots this year that most QBs would not. It is too bad he really doesn't know how to run with the ball, because he could be way more effective. He spends way too much time trying to juke people in the open field instead of just running full speed.

    I am guessing that on a track in shorts Jantz probably runs a 4.7 forty. On the football field he is slower than guys who run a 4.9 forty. He is not a good runner. He stumbles all the time and often falls down without getting hit. He has tried to run more up field lately and has looked better doing it.

    BTW you must not know how fast a sub 11 second 100 meters is. I would guess there are very few players on the ISU team that run sub 11 seconds in the 100. Most of the skill players probably run low 11 seconds. All you have to do is look up some of the recruits track numbers to see that this is the case. Ellis Hobbs ran a 10.6 100 meters in high school (his fastest time).

    Re: How fast is Jantz

    Rhoads said last year that Jantz may be the fastest guy on the team. CyCloned got it right when he said he doesn't know how to run with the ball. I don't think he has enough "vision" while running the ball, so he's not able to run at top speed most of the time that he scrambles. I'd guess that in a foot race down the sideline, he'd look very fast.

    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I certainly do. I ran close to that speed all throughout H.S. We need a guy with some more speed in my opinion, thats why I ask.

    I think Steele is running better with the ball actually.

    The problem is that most of these guys are not 160 pounds and possess many other skills that make them good football players. Straight line speed is great if you can do the other things.

    The problem is that many "track guys" cannot do the other things. And whoever said Jantz is the fastest guy on the team must have heard a quote incorrectly because there is no way that is the case. I think Rhoads has said he is the fastest quarterback.

    Interesting that the TCU coach said that it surprised their defense because Barnett is much faster than the starter. And that's the difference between track speed and football speed.

    I don't think I've ever seen him successfully juke a defender in a one on one situation.

    That's because instead of making one juke and going forward, he makes about five jukes and goes nowhere.
