More on Fitness test

A few careful readers emailed me because I left out something important about the conditioning test. Here is the test:

Run 14 100-yard sprints in 18 seconds each. You get 35 seconds of rest between each.

How many of you guys think you can do that?

100 out of 105 Maryland players have passed the test. Fridge thinks it is pretty easy. I am tempted to try it in a few weeks, and will report my results here. I also challenge Patrick Stevens of Washington Times fame to the same test!

Off to College Park...

Fridge thinks that's easy?? Has he done it?? I love the guy, but if he can pass that test, I'll join the Terrapin Club!

@Section 24 idiot: What does it matter if Fridge can do it? He doesn't play NCAA football anymore, he's a coach. I guarantee he could when he played.

Is the time allowed the same for all players? I was under the impression that the completion time was slightly lower for skill players.

I accept on his behalf.

This means over 11.5 minutes to run the length of the football field. I would think skill players would be able to do this easily, and yes it is a little harder for the lineman, but I think they should all be able to accomplish this.

I am 100 percent convinced I could do that.

I meant to say 11.5 minutes to run it 14 times.
