  • Sea Ray results site sucks

    When are they going to dump that format, with the picture of the damn scoreboard and the drop-down menu? I don't know of another meet that uses this format for reporting results. Where is Flash Results? These aren't really live results. Leave it to us to fug this up.

    It really is maddening. You have to toggle back and forth between the schedule and the drop-down results to figure out what events should be finished and posted at any particular time. Not very user friendly, to say the least.

      there is a reason

      and the answer is.............its cheaper. Not using a professional results group saves upwards of $15,000-$20,000 for the meet.

        I find it hard to believe that it would cost that much for a single meet.

          Give me a break, Ed. SR is the only meet I know of that uses this obnoxious results system. The TSSAA meets have a better system, for crying out loud. But even if it did cost what you say, that's nothing for UT. Especially considering that SR is our big meet of the year.

          What is the company that does all the track results? Is it Delta Timing? Flash Results, I guess, is the computer program used at the meets.

            Hy-Tek is the program used at most meets, including this one.

            This page was the same as every other meet that has live results: http://www.tenntrack.com/meet/results/t ... ay_Relays/

            That is the link I got from the Coaches Association website. The page with the scoreboard and drag down menus is just another way of accessing the same information. I found the agate results very helpful, some meets never get around to posting them and it drives me crazy.

            I don't get why you are being such a hater. Their page looks nice, better than most other meets, and at least they weren't messing with those gawd-awful PDFs that FlashResults has been experimenting with at Arkansas and NCAA Indoors.

              Those are last year's results. Is there a similar site with this year's results?

                  Strangely enough (particularly since I've been on the LOC of multiple major meets), I don't recall ever seeing any billing for a timing system. I suspect it's higher than I think, but can't imagine that it's anything like this, when you stop to think that universities used to get by with grabbing a half-dozen professors out of the PE department and put them on the finish line with Hanhart Split-30s. (total cost after initial purchases of some 100-dollar watches = 0)

                    Curiously, Delta Timing is owned by the husband of U of TN's previous women's track coach.

                      I wish I'd seen that link before or I wouldn't have made such a fuss. But if UT didn't have the two results sites, there wouldn't have been any confusion in the first place. This is just one illustration of what should be improved on with the Sea Rays.

                      Hopefully one of these days, SR will be the great track meet that it should be.

                        Maybe they could use the Mt. SAC system! :twisted:
