    Ditto - when I started coaching here, the records were mostly Imperial and waaaay superior to the metric marks. The AD said he wanted to put up a record board at the entrance to the track and I gave...

    Ha! There's a guy that a had to rant to rant and a ready-made audience to rant to.
    Not that I don't agree with him. It's definitely a generation gap thing. All my grandkids are the same way.

    My take was that he already had his sights on USATF and wants the win there, so we'll see. If Claye pops another huge one, I'm not sure CT has an 18m (59') in him right now - he'll undoubtedly be...

    OK, for anyone else foolish enough to second-guess the T&FN formchart, here's where you can put your picks. Either pick just the winners or pick top 3 - to see if you can beat T&FN (or others).

    I know that's a popular idea on this board, but even I, much more conversant in Imperial than metric (tho getting better), think that has very little to do with it. It's the huge explosive diversity...

    He sure doesn't seem like he'll be one of those flame-out HS phenoms.
    The question now is, will he be a NCAA one-and-done like SMcL and Mondo?

    USATF Formchart

    Looking over the T&FN final(?) formchart, I have quibbles (which usually means I'm misinformed about athletes' form coming into a championship).

    So here's my doubts in the Top 3.

    Talk about a tough crowd. If they don't show up enough on the circuit, we complain that they're ducking and leading T&F to ruin. If they do show up, they're over-racing.

    The irony here is that this is the same height he cleared 10 out of 11 tries in 30 minutes in practice one day. He obviously did not go to his 'safety pole' on the last try.

    Oh, wait, that can't be true. I'd never even heard of Duke, and no one from my school even wanted to go there!!!!!
