    Perhaps having the cones positioned inside the line and allowing the runners to run a shorter path contributed to the fast times. Certainly if there had been a rail on the track, the runners would have found it difficult to be so close to the line.

    What are the rules re cone placement on tracks w/o rails?
    Is the lane standard width, i.e., is there the 12in/30cm cushion rather than the 8in/20cm cushion. If so, then I would think that the cones should be up to the outside edge of the line and not inside, but that only adds two inches (but the possibility of a DQ for going on the line?). I have thought that cones are not as big a disincentive as a rail.

    That's about 20 teams with auto's. Probably means two sections at ncaa. The total number of athletes in the meet is capped, so the dmr is contributing about 80. This does mean that the individual events will have smaller fields than usual. The usual size of dmr and 4x4 is about 10-12 teams.

    So how many teams total would that mean in the DMR? What is the normal field size? As someone who already has tickets to NCAA indoor it would really stink if it does affect the field sizes. Does the NCAA have any "emergency" clause that would allow them to declare auto qualifiers to no longer be auto qualifiers.

    I called a friend of mine earlier tonight to let him know Penn State's time. His reply was "wow, that's pretty good, did they win?"

    15 teams went auto tonight in the DMR at Notre Dame. Three others have already done so. Depending on how many of these guys are already high on the individual form charts, provisional qualifiers could be few and far between this year.
