    If Lyles had gone to college and got a lot of relay experience I could see him anywhere, but that didn't happen. I'll go with the consensus on this board to let him run anchor.

    Since Bob Beamon and I were both born on August 29, 1946 in Queens, New York this part of the question is too easy for me. I promise not to answer it if it comes up next year. I disqualify myself.
