What's even grosser is that I think he was clocked at 4.15 when he was at Auburn. I agree, Bo Jackson is the best athlete I've ever seen. Obviously I can't comment on the old schoolers like Thorpe and Jim Brown. My father always said Jim Brown was the best athlete he ever saw and my grandfather says Red Grange was the best athlete he ever saw. The galloping ghost!
