    That documentary will be awesome. If you are too young to have seen him live, do yourself a favor and watch tomorrow night. He was truly amazing.

    I've only watched highlights and heard every UGA fan under the sun speak of him like a God

    Big enough to run over your ass, fast enough to outrun you. He was a Freak.

    Do you really think the tall tales of him doing nothing but push ups and sit ups to look like that are true? I find it hard to believe, but you never know.

    The clip where he runs over what appeared to be the entire Vanderbilt was pretty good. The hurdle over the line, then landing on his feet and running on in against Ole Miss was pretty good, too.

    If he was taking anything, he started at about age 16. He was a monster when he showed up in Athens.

    No, what I meant was Herschel was said to not have used traditional weight training through high school. Bench, squats, or any of that. Like I said, it may be urban legend stuff now.

    This is tangential, but did any of you see Travis Cozart in high school? He wasn't Herschel, but damn if I didn't think he would break every rushing record in UT history. He could flat ball.

    I've seen guys get pretty big on that stuff alone. If you have the genes, you have the genes.
