Tom Black Track has been revamped for this premier event. The track now has a brand new "jumbotron" scoreboard. According to UT sports information (a dubious source, I have to admit!), only Tennessee and Stanford have tracks with jumbotron scoreboards. The track has also been resurfaced (Rekortan) and the stadium has been improved in other areas.

I remember the huge crowds at track meets when I was in school at UT from '82-'86 and the great excitement at Tom Black Track. Old timers tell me it was nothing like the SRO crowds at the track in the '70s. Hopefully one day the crowds will return. Maybe they will for this year's SECs!
