  • Collegians Making Oly Team

    Page 23 of the July T&FN has a bar graph showing the number of collegiate men making the Olympic team in each year since 1932. The magazine's formchart (thanks, dj) predicted that only one male collegian would make the team (Jonas, HJ).

    There are various ways of counting collegians, and I don't know what criteria Jim Rorick used in his chart. But here's what we have after the first half of the Trials (corrections welcomed):

    Men
    Dix 100 Florida State
    **Wheating 800 Oregon

    Women
    **Harrison 400H Virginia Tech
    McLain TJ Stanford (entered as unattached/Nike, wore Nike uniform)
    *Patterson Purdue JT
    Johnson Hept Arizona State (entered as unattached/Nike, wore Nike uniform)

        How could you leave out Oregon's Galen Rupp in the men's 10000?

          Because he was not enrolled in school after December 2007 and did not compete in the 2008 collegiate indoor or outdoor seasons. Yes, he has eligibility remaining and has said that he will return to school and the team next season, but that's in the future.
