    Your post makes me more than uneasy.
    Man, do we have different mind sets.
    There really isn't "a club". You can try to make one, I suppose.
    UCLA has never remotely been a 4x100 player -- ever. Very...

    What does this data tell us?
    For the 4x100 relay, it appears 38.60 is equivalent to 43.00
    38.50 is equivalent to 42.90 (perhaps 42.86).
    Mathematically, we could derive a pretty exact equivalent. I...

    Thanks for lists. I am glad someone else enjoys this stuff.
    It occurs to me that we might ought to make the Men's list sub 38.60, since it is clear 38.50 is much better equivalently, than 43.00,...

    With each passing year, the window of opportunity closes further, because of the inescapable demands of age. However, IF she makes technical gains (lower heel carriage in acceleration, more...

    oops, i forgot to add, Gatlin is ALSO left handed! (As if he needed any more advantages to the necessary execution of running the 2 spot on a relay).

    Gatlin is the best second leg in history, imo. His reading skills and baton acumen in receiving AND passing are unmatched, when weighing the body of work.
    He doesn't miss reads. He doesn't miss...

    Re: Why are 400m/800m runners rare?

    The research is in. The answer is physiological. the 400m dash is predominantly anaerobic, with a shockingly paltry aerobic component in performance (30% at the HIGH end, among the population). The...

    Re: Gale Sayers/Bo Jackson

    While Sayers was the extraordinary complete player, what made him truly stunning was his ability to find the end zone. His rookie season in the nfl was a scoring orgy -- huge season total, 6 in one...

    Sir, I saw the race better than you. If athletes change tape at the last moment, that is an attempt to salvage the moment, not to give in. It is your prerogative to ignore the rules of engagement...

    I don't see how you could leave Mike Miller off of Tennessee's. He was better than Harlan Davis, who was good. Miller had more longevity and better NCAA results.

    Yes, Prandini lost because her socks were falling down. There were no other causative agents at work in the scenario.

    There is so much of substance to be said about this event at NCAAs (trends, patterns, displays of courage, etc). Yet, the silence is deafening.
    Let me offer this: there are no excuses in the 4x100,...
