VIDEO: Controversy Ensues When Our Staff Runs the 40-Yard Dash
For the first time ever, we decided to hold the 40-yard dash outside of the Tide 99.1 studios to see how we measure up against the players running at the NFL Combine this weekend.
Host Ryan Fowler and producer Ryan McMunn accepted the challenge. On a cold and windy February day, we measured off what we believed to be 40 yards on the driveway and set up the cameras to document the results.
As you'll see in the videos below, both runners questioned the distance after learning of their time. There's been some speculation on Twitter that a second run could be in order, but that would likely be months away as Fowler needs time to heal his hamstring. Watch how things turned out below.
