    Holloway/Roberts the race of the meet?
    I think GH 'learned his lesson' at the SECs, so I'm hoping for a 13.0-low over a 13.0-mid.

    What lesson did he learn? Roberts was just better at SEC finals and Holloway did run well too.

    It's never that simple. Holloway knew it'd be tight but that he 'should' win, so there was less 'urgency' and more focus on 'executing technique'. There's much to be said for that, but sometimes you have to hurdle with more 'abandon' to get the job done. We'll see.

    Holloway is bigger and faster. Between the two I imagine he's more likely to do something special.

    Both of which are now working AGAINST him now. He only takes 7 strides to H1 (Robts 8), which means, along with his superior speed, he has to cut his stride more than Roberts. If there's a trailing wind, Roberts will win (his sf time was quicker too). I'm still rooting for the Gator, though!

    I'm looking forward to these 13 seconds more than any other race at the meet. Of course, I'm actually hoping it doesn't even last 13 seconds.

    Yes this is going to be one of the highlight races...I am rooting for Grant but Roberts cannot be counted out. If we are being honest Grant's race pattern has been relatively the same over the years and the few 110h races that were close or where he lost was because he started to give the race back in the last 2/3 hurdles. With him being so tall and having a big stride its surprising his 110 hurdles finishes have been his weakest point. There was even a workout video I believe of him a little while back where Coach Holloway was specifically working on his finish because he stated that Grant tended to get a little lazy those last few hurdles. It got exposed at USATF Nationals last year and this year at SECs, I am hoping in these last 4 weeks he has worked hard to minimize it.

    Is the meet record doomed?

    13.16. Devon Allen (Oregon) 16

    how about the wind-aided best?

    12.91w Renaldo Nehemiah (Maryland) 79
