Sprinters are NOT thin.
Look at Ben, look at Michael johnson, Maurice Greem, Jon Drummond, Linford Christie....

Johnson had to cheat (drugs) to win against thinner guys. No, sprinters aren't as thin as distance runners but there aren't too many 250# sprinters. Shouldn't all the best sprinters be big guys?

Lets not go into the steroid thing ok? THEY all take it, as was proven just a few weeks ago in the States.
As for over 250lbs, are we talking muscular or weight here?
Sprinters are muscular and not thin. Look at the top 10 sprinters, the thinnest one ( current record holder) is getting more and more muscualr every season.
They can't be called thin.
We are not talking big guys, we are talking muscular.

.. but according to Djimbe, the more you can squat the faster you can run .. why can't defensive linemen play cornerback?

Well, I guess so .. I mean, he said that people who can bench more can punch faster .. if the formula works for punching then it has to work for running too.

I don't think that is COMPLETELY accurate, I am sure Tyson can bench press more than Roy Jones Jr, but I don't think anyone doubts who has the faster hands.
There is a genetic limitation on speed, more so than on strength and endurance.
See my article on genetics and speed.

Ok, Ronin...here's a pivotal question for ya.
Let me preface this by making sure that you do, in fact, assert that muscle can get stronger as it applies to any undertaking unrelated to the specific movement in which it was developed in a process whereby no new muscle tissue has grown; that process being more efficient fiber recruitment in every movement even if unrelated to the one in which it was developed. Correct?
So...what say you about the eccentric portion of a repition? Is it just something which gets in the way? A neccesary evil? What is the value, if any?
