maybe. but Denard has more sex.
Lolo Jones: "Denard, you could not beat me or Usain Bolt in a race"
might need some ice for this burn
Overhyped and I have no idea why anyone pays attention to her
Just so people on here know - your average D3 sprinter or HS state finalist could beat Lolo Jones in any event. Denard certainly could.
Has anyone ever done less with more hype than lolo jones (other than kim kardashian that is)?
BloBlo "Me" Jones
Lolo how that medal feels around her neck... Oh... Wait.
Edit: well done Spreadguru, well done
I wonder who has a tighter spiral...
And does she even run non-hurdle races? What's the time difference between her and the men? Because it might be like pro women's basketball players who would get beat by a bad college team.
dude, she's runs bobsled now.
Correct that -- pro women's teams would get throttled by really good high school men's teams. College wouldn't even be worth attempting.
Denard ran a 10.44 100m in high school, the Women's world record is 10.49. In 2010 he ran a 6.81 60m, the women's world indoor record is 6.92. Lolo Jones is either ignorant about how much faster men are or attention whoring again.
Someone please tweet this to her.
I love to be like, "some women's sports FTW", but this is just insane. She runs an 11.24s 100m; do you know what that looks like compared to Denard's 10.55? For the record, the difference between Bolt and 7th was .6s, the difference between Denard and "Lolo" is .8s.
Denard would destroy her head to head in any competition of strength or speed, and she's apparently too dumb to realize it.
Also, I happen to know that there are mens scout teams for womens basketball that regularly pants them in practice, and I'm not talking about guys recruited to play ball, I mean former high school basketball players given some free gear and acess to AD facilities to play them in practice.
Edit: Her 11.24 would put her in 299th place in 2011 at Florida high schools. Congrats on being in the top 300 Lolo.
He ran the 40 in 4.72 compared to Denard's 4.32.
And apparently she's ignorant of the fact that Justin Gatlin could only run a 4.42. If Lolo Jones has 4.42 speed she needs to be at the 2013 NFL Combine, and I'm not being sarcastic. If she can run a (still way slower than Denard) 4.4, it would be a great story for everyone involved, but my guess is she's unwilling to step up to that challenge.
I saw that too & I'm calling bullsh*t. Denard would take her. She's a girl...sorry. I can't imagine female Olympic sprinters (and she's a hurdler not a sprinter) can beat the fastest players in college football. She seemed really annoyed by that. She must not know anything about Denard & his good nature because she acted like she acted like Denard was calling out Bolt...not the case at all. She brought it up twice in that pick. Well, she just went on the sh*t list of Michigan fans. That was stupid.
A paralyzed guy. There isn't much thought put into what she says.
I was trying not to hold that aginst her since she didn't know who he was before the post. But, two dumb comments and know I don't think it's a coincidence.
Why does she get to make guest spots on all these shows? There were female track stars that actually won medals at the olympics and are also more attractive. Those are the only two reasons I can think of to have her on soooo...
Because she's hot. No different with soccer girls. Who is always on TV?...Morgan & Solo, the two hot girls. Not rocket science. They may be athletes, but they are still women & men watch sports.
But Morgan and Solo won gold at the Olympics.
Solo is good, Morgan is not one of the top players on the team though.
Check your facts..Morgan IS one of the top players on the USWNT. Young. Striker. She and Abby are the primary scoring threats.
And she is hot...
that's laughable. I'll admit, Alex Morgan is my celebrity crush, but she is objectively good. and fast as hell. She could beat me that's for sure.
She is my celebrity crush too! But that aside, she is a key to the US Women's team's success.
Morgan is a difference-maker. She has great speed, a great motor, and is a good passer and shooter. Before she started playing regularly, the team's only offensive tactic was to chuck it into the box and hope that Wambach could do something with it. The offense is far more dynamic and effective now.
You missed my second point. There were a LOT of female athletes hotter than Lolo. In my opinion at least half of the women's track team was. Lolo has a strong man voice.
They could've had Makayla Maroney come on and whenever Lee or Kirk disagreed with her picks she could give the "not impressed" look. And at least she won a medal unlike LoLoser Jones
Uhh...She went to LSU
Lolo Jones' best 100m time: 11.24 secs.
Denard ran a 10.4 sec 100m with his shoes untied.
Let's see that race, indeed, Lolo.
Doesn't she do hurdles? Doesn't negate your argument, but does put their times into perspective.
She does, but that 100 meter time is sans hurdles. With hurdles, her best is a 12.43.
100m dash for a woman is 10.49, with an asterisks because it might have been unacceptable wind. Second best time is 10.79. Denard is faster than every female Olympic athlete ever.
My fastest time in high school was an 11.31, which was not good enough to get me to Division 3 states in Michigan. The fact that her best time would barely beat a short high schooler that only practiced a few days a week makes me think she would get crushed by an actual athlete.
I thought her 15 minutes were up?
Her best 100 meter time is slower than Denards time in High School.
Lolo's a dude...
F that B
Are kidding me lolo, he totally could.
Isn't she dating Ndamukong Suh? I feel like they could work out some sort of charity race.
Maybe Denard has a handicap in the race.
Lolo Jones vs. Denard (who, like every week has to carry the entire weight of the Michigan fanbase's expectations)
Yeah, ever since that tweet she sent to Eric LeGrand from Rutgers (link to story here) I've had like no respect for her. Not that I really ever did. She's not that great of a hurdler.
Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones ignited some unexpected controversy when she trash-talked about head injuries to former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand after he jokingly challenged her to a race on Twitter. She obviously had no idea the defensive tackle had been paralyzed in a game during the exchange made Tuesday night.
After LeGrand tweeted to Jones "want to race me?," Jones replied: "Get Checked for a concussion. Clearly, u've been hit in the head... Cos u arnt beating a track athlete."
When other users informed Jones of LeGrand's injuries, she wrote: "Great I'm gonna get murdered for that tweet. When I had no clue who that dude was.Just responding to any athlete who challenges me to a race."
She didn't even seem to feel bad, she was just worried about the public reaction.
Also, by doing this is she comparing her speed to Usain's? They're nowhere near the same league.
I can understand she maybe didn't know who he is but maybe you should know before you fire off a shitty response on Twitter. She handled it very poorly, even after she found out but Legrand handled it like a champ. He realizes there are more important things to get upset in life than Twitter comments.
Denard would take her to school in the race, and then show her what an actual school looks like.
Someone needs to set this race up for charity after the season. It would be friggin hilarious.
Sometimes threads on here are so disappointing. Every once in a while, a thread just descends into an absolute embarrassment. Sexist and misogynist (and extremely lazy) jokes about women in the kitchen, calling her a cunt and a whore, saying her alleged boyfriend is "using her as a trash bag", etc. Seriously, guys? I'd like to think the board is better than this.
Although I will say she doesn't come off as a particularly smart/realistic human being after all this.
WTF, people. THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS
That's messing up the thread?
Preach. Criticism is fine, but allowing the lizard brain to do so is bad news.
See, now that's funny. It also illustrates the difference between a joke about sexism v. a sexist joke. Sex, race, etc are all fair game for making jokes, but that doesn't mean all (or even most) jokes about sex, race, etc aren't sexist, racist, etc.
i had the same reaction. Lolo's comment was off, but the response here was just depressing.
As someone who owes 120% of his success to women....Michigan fans, I am disappointed...
Co-signed. The troglodytes here making these misogynistic comments are having less sex than Lolo Jones.

Denard jokefully said it'd have to be on the football field and not the track
LOL LOLO. LOL
Good God, I'm glad it was alrady mentioned but she made a sassy comment about a beloved football player and we resort to calling her names (nasty ones at that)?! She HAS been succesful in her career, by the way. She damn near won Gold save for an unlucky fall; no it's not a medal but it's more than any of you have ever accomplished. She MADE the olympics this past summer, four long years in a track athletes lifespan, later; that's called an accomplishment. She's wrong though, yes, Denard would beat her but it'd be closer than any of you think.
BTW, Denards times from HS where he ran 10.49 or whatever. Is that hand timed or an FAT?!
Sorry to say this Lolo, but not only would Denard beat you, but I think Norfleet would do it too! I'd like to be there when they run, because this little stunt might happen one day!
Um guys, is it that serious? I love Denard, but it sounded like pretty harmless smack talk / joking to me. We have to be better than this. This is Michigan fergodsakes!
She is just defending a diminishing sport that without Bolt is irrelevant. Trashing bolt is like trashing Jesus to a track athlete.
She is trying, but like her sport... failing.
She may be able to beat him and race, but I'm sure he pulls a lot more wool than she does.
you can't spell Lolo without LOL.
She reason she's never had sex is because she's not good looking AND she's dumb. LOL!(O)
This Lola is loca or Lolo is dumb a momo.
@kawter ignorant?! Who Said I run the 100? I run the hurdles Dummy! So yes! no way denard could beat me in a race! Do more research homie
@lolojones he wouldn't even have to tie his shoes. Maybe if you started from the lady's tees. ;-O
Se wasn't relevant in the Olympics. Why is anyone talking to her now?
Lolo Jones is faster than Denard, or even Bolt, at running her mouth while her feet are in it.
