    Yes, but the point is that there's several guys who could win, and LUCK does play a role in whether the wind and other conditions help or hinder one's approach. One run with the right speed, penultimate step, takeoff, landing . . . with the right wind that gets the jumper all of the board and BAM, the winning jump. Could be any of several.

    There are a dozen guys there who have demonstrated capability to go over 8 meters. could hinge on who hits the board and/or gets a favorable/unfavorable wind

    I ma say be on the watch for the (3) Arkansas jumpers, with Bailey being the main culprit.

    Well, he did not make the meet until the last consideration point, so it seems like he should not be a sure bet.

    NCAA Men's Long Jump

    Now that the NCAA T&F Committee added defending champion Ngoni Makusha of Florida State to the field, will it be a shoe in for Makusha or is there someone else waiting to pop off a big jump @ next week's NCAA Champs?
