    I dont think so Jazz. Fantastic seasons for the young Tigers but Holloway and Hoppal had stellar years and Richardson like you said didn't bring it indoors.

    I mean even if Mondo had won, I still think Holloway's body of work would have stood above Mondo's. The problem for Mondo was simple he simply could not lose at all....... the expectations for him were higher than for any other athlete this year imho.

    Holloway is a beast.

    I agree with you 100% about Holloway. I probably would favor Holkoway even if Mondo had beaten Nilsen. Not only was the quantity of his performances larger than Mondo's but the quality of them is at least equal. However, on the women's side I don't know what to think.

    Totally agree about Mondo. There's no way he can overcome his loss in Austin.

    He never switched over. He's competed for a Swedish club team since he was a kid.

    Well, that Swedish flag is flying over a lot of his marks.

    The 3000 and 5000 might be similar events, but a distance double in a short championship is hard to do. Look at two seemingly dominate runners in Allie O and Winny K; neither could pull of the double and while Allie O had too little time to recover, (and had to run a prelim) Winny K had the more.

    Richardson also brought LSU back and stormed to one of the best 4x100 times.

    Finally, so much for thinking the big stars departing early had stripped the NCAA of amazing athletes.

    McDonald was a double winner indoors. But Oduduru's times may give him the edge he needs over McDonald.
