    Re: Retiring in Eugene?

    I'm fairly attached to home & family so I won't move across the country when I begin drawing a pension. If I move at all, it will be to either Ann Arbor or Toronto. Both have glorious summers and...

    Re: Sacramento Attendance

    UCLA has enough seating for a non-Olympic Trials championships and has all the events in-stadium. They're in the midst of upgrading the facilities to accommodate 21st-century media/TV and other such...

    Re: Sacramento Attendance

    Yeah, based on past numbers this is very average turnout, not bad at all, and might be pretty good considering that Justin Gatlin, Allyson Felix, LaShawn Merritt, Matt Centrowitz and Shalane Flanagan...

    Re: Sacramento Attendance

    I'm waiting on today's numbers. Thursday and Friday were 5,824 and 8,131. The two-day total (13,995) is the worst since Carson '05 but basically equal to Des Moines '13 (14,189) and Indy '07...

    Re: 2014 USATF: m400óRoberts leads heats with 45.16

    So you're saying that a professional athlete has absolutely no obligation to the fans who make it possible for him to be a professional because "performance" matters more than putting butts in seats?...

    Re: Nike Tracktown is Old

    It's the normal situation for attendance to wane with repeated hostings. I don't know of any site that hasn't had that happen. Track and field has always been a west coast sport in this country, it...

    Re: NCAA TV/web reactions

    I thought the production and camera work was at least as shoddy as the announcing. And the on-field interviewer hadn't a clue as to what to ask.
  9. Re: 2014 NCAA Men's Team Scores (Oregon favored)

    The current scoring system was adopted in 1985 and the highest men's scores since then are 83 by Arkansas in '94 and 82 by UCLA in '88. Oregon could threaten that record.

    Re: NCAA TV/web reactions

    Last year's broadcast was the worst I've ever seen. I'll be interested to see if that record gets broken. I assume that ESPN doesn't want to broadcast this meet but they have to as part of an NCAA...

    Re: Men's High Jump - 2014

    Point taken about Kynard, but the same could have been said about Bondarenko until last year. And he's added at least 3 cm to his PR every year for ten years in a row (until 2014, and he's jumped...

    Re: Men's High Jump - 2014

    Erik does strike me as inconsistent but a look at the results is interesting. He's jumped in, I think, 6 Diamond League meets in his career and been runner-up in all of the last five. He might have...

    Re: Rupp AR 10k at Pre

    OK, stat folks, I have a question for you...
    Galen Rupp leads the comprehensive world lists at 5k and 10k. When was the last time an American man could say that in June or later?
  14. Re: NYC Adidas Grand Prix & NYRR disconnect: why?

    One contributing factor to the disinterest in pros among ordinary runners is that it's basically impossible to see the race if you're running it. Example: I was very glad I didn't run this year's...

    They can when they're in HS and college. Then again, coaches in HS and college are held responsible for their teams' performances...

    Actually, USATF does have a policy regarding this, or at least they once did.

    Re: Drummond Suing Gay, USADA

    I wouldn't immediately think Drummond's suit to be foolish if he'd limited it to Gay (although I'd suspect it), but also suing Tygart shows that he has no idea what he's doing. The only possible...

    What he doesn't want is a six-hour meet with fifteen minutes between each race and an hour between races that his favorite team is in. He doesn't want to see people going through the motions in order...

    If Griefinger's analysis of USATF's deal is accurate, then I think the IOC may have made the same mistake. In any case, NBC so desperately needs the Olympics to prop itself up that they are willing...

    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the Peacock either. I'm glad my cable picks up CBC (although maybe they won't once Hockey Night in Canada is out of the picture).
