      What happened to Arkansas's Ulrey...he's looked worse with each race he runs. He's better than these results...anyone know why he is off form?

        But now you can't have him on the NCAA coverage issue--and after he "owned" the meet.

        Guess you'll have to have some good-looking woman who also did well. Sarah Bowman (in that cool and colorful Tennesee orange!)? Two distance types close together, yes, but distance runners sell...?

          TFN has had athletes on the cover two consecutive months.

            I'm guessing there's a word missing there?

                Are you saying you have not? What about 1996?

                  1996, MJ 200 WR then MJ OG double gold. Looks like you have to be pretty boss to pull off a cover double.

                    Hope it doesn't have unwanted consequences. Steele stated that if there was a time to over-race one, it would be at NCAA's. An oft-injured athlete isn't exactly the type of guy one wants to put to the ultimate test in a meaningless indoor meet (in the grand scheme of things, with IAAF WC's the greater picture here).

                      athletes on college scholarships don't have greater pictures than the NCAA meet. Nor should they.

                          "Meaningless" is a subjective word, and what may be meaningless to a European track and field fan isn't necessarily meaningless to a college athlete whose team is contending for a national title.

                            It just occurred to me this morning that Rupp is undefeated this year in NCAA championships, both individually and team. Won both individual and team in cross and now won three races individually and the team title indoors.

                            Question: Has anybody ever made it a sweep of all three seasons, individually and team? If Oregon were to win outdoors and Rupp wins his individual race(s), that would do it. That would have to be a first, wouldn't it?

                              Rupp did in 2008. Redshirted for the sake of an Olympic dream.

                                The key word is "redshirt", as opposed to "turned pro early". Furthermore, Oregon wouldn't have won the team championship even with him in 2008. So redshirting has allowed him to have his cake and eat it too, Olympic deam and team championship. A better example would be Bianca Knight or LaShawn Merritt.
