    This is either performance art or you've mixed up your meds.

    If they knew Wallace wasn't right, why didn't the coaches adjust the go-mark accordingly?

    You are right!! In the Pac 12, soon USC will be challenging Oregon in both the men and women. Mrs. Smith (COach) did her thang with the women in Florida, now she has more resources, and more opportunites to recruit 1+ talent...

    Heard from someone who spoke with Wallace's parents at the meet today that she was injured prior to the meet. With Ducks having lost Mary Beth Sant to injury the drop off to next back up wasn't worth forcing Prandini and Francis to endure stress of 2 rounds of 4x1 for what likely would be 2-3 points max. You posters who cite benefits of running a 4x1 are not taking into consideration its end of season and there are some tired, stressed bodies and the Ducks already had lost Todd, Sant and now an injured Wallace were stuck between a rock and hard place with what to do so solution was to botch the first hand off but with all the scrutiny Wallace had to at least try to run the 100 hurdles which she did much slower than normal.

    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, or at the ncaa meet at all, for that matter. If one's team fails to make the final, you own it and fight another day. Every coach would kill for a single point, because in the end, one knows it may well come down to that. No one would tank a point and NO TEAM, especially one that is seeking a title, would forsake "2-3" points, FOR ANY REASON. Points are hard to come by and treated as such.
    If a coach is honorable, it is preposterous to suggest they would tank a 4x100, to save face, or to save effort, for any honorable athlete, when a single point is to be had.

    To suggest otherwise is to accuse a coach of malpractice, and worse, dishonor.
    Shame on ANYONE for even remotely suggesting that Oregon (and specifically Coach Johnson and Coach Taylor) would have so little integrity! You should be ashamed of your excuse making self. Turn in your Duck card, please.

    By definition, the squad that lines up for the NCAA semi has every intent of scoring in the final. Everyone gets that. Everyone, that is, who plays in the game.
