    Total if all goes to form:
    Ducks 78
    Bruins 85

    Key guys for the Bruins are HJers, LJers, TJers and Brian Law (must score in both hurdles)
    Should be another fun meet. Even though I think UCLA wins "on paper," there will always be overachievers and underachievers. With this on the Ducks' "home court," the advantage goes to the Ducks, so I would not be surprised to see about a double-digit win for Oregon.

    There is a lot of interest in the UO-UCLA duel this year. The Ducks were stung by a defeat to Indiana in the Pepsi meet two weeks ago when they held out their stellar distance crew. They don't want to lose at Hayward Field 2 meets in a row. ops: :evil: Additionally Venegas "guaranteed" a victory after last year's meet.

    UCLA appears to have an edge, but Dan Steele is working on it. :idea:

    With Rupp and Wheating in their outdoor debut, and the UCLAish sunny day forecast, a nice boisterous crowd will be there. 8-)

      Anyone outside of Oregon who wishes to view this meet can sign up at http://www.goducks.com/ViewArticle.dbml ... oem_id=500

      Cost is $9.95 per month and you can cancel at any time. Not sure if they'll be covering the Pac 10 (could be a TV rights issue). If so, you can get all three meets (including the Oregon Relays) for $9.95.

          1 thing that could be against this dual meet in the future, is that USUALLY oregon's strength is 800 -5k and ucla is stronger at 100-400 so the running events in most years are very predictable, the schools dont face off strength vs strength in hardly any running events, which makes it less interesting. ncaa schools need to have more well rounded teams, which is difficult with 12.6 scholarships (18.6 for women), but with a lot of schools with 30 thousand or more students, coaches should be able to develop some walk ons. example mark kiptoo who was 3rd at world xc said he started running at age 28, and one of the elites in boston this year, (i think his name is sentemma) said he was a chain smoker and did not even start running until his was past 20 years old. with 30 thousand or more students there has to be undeveloped talent who can contribute to their schools, all it would take is students with great work ethics and coaches that no how to DEVELOP athletes , not just recruit them (be a salesman).

            I'll probably take some heat for saying this, but Title IX just killed dual meets. Right or wrong, there isn't the interest in women's athletics as there is in men's and as long as track and field continues to be such a money loser for most schools, I doubt that anyone is going to push to increase men's scholarships and thus allow schools to be competitive in a range of events rather than a few specialties. Even with the enthusiastic, decent-sized crowds in Eugene, I doubt that the Duck program is a moneymaker (unless you factor in Phil Knight's track-related largesse).

              this is a great meet!

              Rupp 13:55, Luke Puskedra 14:03, Mercado 14:09 go 123 in the 5000 and tie the meet with one event to go!

                Ducks win!!!! Great meet, right down to the final pass (which UCLA fumbled) in the relay. Given that Barlow had a small lead and had already beaten Wells in the 400, it's doubtful that the bad pass made a difference. Meets like this one are great for T&F and hopefully a few new fans came aboard today.

                Thanks to the Ducks for making this available on their website. This section A season-seat holder was able to enjoy the meet from 3000 miles away.
