    Obviously it was written into the script that Lyles wouldn't be DQ'ed for a false start. If you're going to make those sort of modifications to the rules because it's an "exhibition", it should apply...

    Was there prize money for this meet? Does the IAAF or USATF count the results? If the answer is yes to either of these questions the rules should be strictly followed. If diehard track fans don't...

    June 10 -13 isn't late for an NCAA meet in the regionals era, that's normal.

    Couldn't they end the meet on July 5 and submit the names on July 6? Like I said, most of the athletes competing will have qualifying marks before the meet starts. Or perhaps I'm missing something.

    If the Trials were held later the only events that would be affected are the few events that the US is weak in where many of the finalists don't have qualifying marks.

    I have to admit that I was jolted when I saw the photo on his facebook post today. I guess subconsciously even when I saw him wearing Lafayette High gear I viewed him as an LSU Tiger but those days...

    Weak? Why would anyone begrudge Mondo for chasing $$$ when the primary reason people go to college is to increase their income-earning potential?

    I doubt she will deviate from her original plan in terms of meet schedule but what remains to be seen is what remains to be seen is whether turns pro or not. Dennis Shaver astutely pointed out that...

    What the hell was USATF thinking when it made that decision? USATF should at least try to have a symbiotic relationship with the NCAA the was the NFL, the NBA and MLB do.
