    Robert Griffin III, on being rejected by Baylor's last coaching staff

    http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...n.3afa4d5.html

    Hart offered Griffin a partial track scholarship to Baylor, but Houston offered a full ride to play football. Morriss told Griffin he already had a quarterback recruit, Griffin said.

    "He told me I could walk on," Griffin said. "So I took that for what it was worth."

    It appears Robert Griffin is Catholic after he knelt and crossed himself after winning the Big 12 title.

    Maybe Baylor can re-institute the Hail Mary pass!

    Many people don't appreciate just how incredible this accomplishment was. Making the transition from the 300m hurdles that is run in high school to the 400m hurdles is very difficult. No other event has an increase in difficulty this high (if at all) from high school to college. Most freshmen struggle with the adjustment their entire first year. For Griffin to do what he did after only a couple of weeks of training, and at a time when he should have been only a senior in high school, is simply mind-boggling.

    Posted this one in another thread, but this video is from his junior year at state where he was .01 off the national record. He's in lane 9!
