Oops


Looks like taking a year off from football and that ol' schoolroom hassle didn't turn out so hot for former Gopher Gary Russell. Russell is now preparing himself for the upcoming NFL Draft by taking part in the pre-draft NFL Scouting Combine. According to ProFootballTalk.com, it's not going so well:

"Two days after he vowed not to run the 40-yard dash as slow as Maurice Clarett did it two years ago, former Minnesota running back Gary Russell posted two bad, bad times on Sunday afternoon.

Clarett ran a 4.72 and a 4.82 after being out of football for two full seasons. Russell, who missed the 2006 season because of academics issues, ran a 4.8 and a 4.82.

Russell had to lose 25 pounds to get in shape, and he blamed his ineligibility in 2006 to being lazy.

Based on his history and on his times in the 40, we doubt that Russell will hear his name called at the draft."

More on Gary Russell from ProFootballTalk.com:

"Minnesota RB Gary Russell won the Mo-Clo award for his 4.8-second 40; he also gets the Fred Smoot award for managing only nine reps in the 225-pound bench."
