Even wilder than the time itself was learning that Smith apparently wasn’t running full speed and was visibly upset when his camp called him to shut it down after posting his first time because Nolan wanted to run it even faster.

“I wasn’t even running full speed.”

Nolan Smith upset and appears to receive the “shut it down” phone call. He wanted that 2nd attempt. #GoDawgs

Smith’s time bested NFL running backs like CMC and Saquon Barkley and even WRs like Stefon Diggs.
