  • Carter Switching Coaches (Holloway) [oops]

    Front-page article.
    http://www.trackandfieldnews.com/displa ... p?id=19144

    In an Olympic year, nonetheless. What will his new coach bring to the table, and where do you see Carter come june? (Appears to have his distractions to the side -- those which saw him start off slowly in 2007).

    oooo - aaaah. If Clement is still hanging around, they can only help each other into the Promised Land. I can't wait to see where the X plans on putting his marbles this year, 100/200 with 400 dabblings or 200/400 with 100 dabblings. Much as I want to see his 400 potential (scary), I'm selfishly hoping the 100/200, cuz I think he can challenge in both. If he gets his 100 to where I think it can be in 2008 (9.8x), the 200 would solidify in the 19.6x range, and I even think the 400 can go near 44-flat with just that work. Once he develops his 100 speed, then he could work on the 400 and seriously challenge JW, as a so-called 'speed' quarter-miler. Luckily I don't get a vote, and I'm sure he and Mouse will work this out 'satisfactorily'. Louise, aren't you EXCITED??!!

        Yes, but X will have Derrick Atkins, Steve Mullings, & Ricky Harris to train with.

          Would this be the same Steve Mullings who was serving a drug suspension?

            As long as he's in Baton Rouge, there's always a good chance that he'll get distracted by his football friends. The spring and summer are the off-season for those guys, and he just can't risk those kinds of distractions in an Olympic year. It's probably a good move on his part.

              Speaking of Baton Rouge and his "football friends," has there ever been any disposition of that run-in with the police?

                    If he can stay healthy and he is truly committed (as it appears) he will be a genuine gold medal contender in both the 100 & 200. We have only seen the tip of the iceberg of his talent.

                        Guess who just had another run-in? (although he may be an innocent bystander on this one)

                        See front page.

                          Strange way to prove one:s innocence:

                          When police approached the men, Xavier Carter, who was walking with them, began running away and continued despite police requests to stop.

                            I am being forced by circumstances to believe that X is not the sharpest knife in the drawer . . .

                              Someone needs to get through to X-man that you are who you run with. It may not be fair, but it's reality. NFL football players Jamal Lewis and Ray Lewis found this out the hard way. Both were innocent bystanders who were running with the wrong crowd. Jamal spent 4 months in federal prison and Ray almost went to prison for murder.
