    All-Time Multi-Event College/University Scores
    #1
    Here's an interesting way to compare the historical multi-event prowess of different schools as proposed by Minnesota State University, that stat geeks should have fun with. I guess it should come as no surprise that the schools on the top of the list are the usual suspects.

    As a quick look, this seems really stupid. It is like saying let us put in a thrower and they get a lot of throw points but not very high scores. Then they use a jumper with great HJ/PV scores, and possibly LJ but they get 400 points in the JT, SP, and DT. Then another that is sprint specialist for 100 and 400 and 110h points. Finally, get a 1500 guy run 3:40. That gives you a 'great' composite score and five poor multi-event athletes. Why not just use school records in each element, it would be more less the same and almost as irrelevant as this compilation.

    Isn't that what they did? I know LSU's entry is a composite of school records.

    That's exactly the idea behind the exercise. Each school uses its school records for the 10/7 events in the multis to come up with dec/hept scores.

    Two very good Hept score today. At the SEC 6074 for Tyra Gittens, while at the Big Ten meet, Ellenwood might have altered the NCAA meet projects with a CL 6173. She was good across the board in pretty warm and a bit humid weather, especially for those of us that have been dealing with temps in the 30s and 40s until recently (actually yesterday was in the low forties all day in Madison with rain.
