    Whether Rupp scores 10 or 8 is apparently irrelevant if an Oregon asst coach is to be believed (letsrun Quote of the Day):
    "If he (Ashton Eaton) fouls that, it's not just 'Ashton Eaton just screwed himself out of a national championship.' This is, 'Oregon is no longer in the running.'"

      Presumably, this refers to Eaton nearly no pointing in the LJ which would have meant no points in the decathlon rather than the expected 10 points. 8 or 10 would likely not have mattered.

        Given that it's competitors have had some failings, they look to have a lead even if he NHs/ F/F/F etc. Of course, if he does it in a low-scoring even like the discus or JT he might still place, as he has >500 gap on 8th and vaults and runs well.

          Well, yes. It stands to reason that's what he meant - whether in LJ or another event.

            Something's lost in the English->English translation here. How does Dan Steele's comment have anything to do with how Rupp places tonight? He was saying that if Ashton didn't score in the Deca LJ, and possibly by extenstion in the Deca overall, it would have possibly squashed Oregon's title hopes. That would mean that Rupp scoring 10/8 vs. 0 in either of his events is a big deal as well, obviously.

                The team result depends on certain things happening, or not happening. Rupp's points are seen as pretty certain. The multi- results, less so. The event is a precarious one.

                  I would be way surprised if 'Team Rupp' expects, has planned for, and will do whatever - to win both 5k and 10k. I can't believe that there is not a sense of 'history' being felt in said camp. And I can't help but believe that Galen is pretty surely supremely exceptionally confidant in his fitness and racing savvy.

                  Other than that ...

                  Plus I think he has great form

                  Anything short of paragraph one will surprise me.

                  Other than that ...

                    Not that I felt Rupp would pull back the reins if stressed in the 10,000 but does Centrowitz's goose egg put a little more pressure on the double for Rupp?

                      Wow, is this great or what! Watching an NCAA 10K live in its entirety, no commercials. Audio is freaking out, but who cares.

                          Who is the announcer, and does he know anything about distance running? He just announced they were on about 28:00 pace, after passing the 1000 in 2:43. That's more like 27:10. Why take a guess if you don't know?

                          In the women's 10 he didn't mention who had made the break until Doetzel was more than 25 meters ahead. Seems like relevant info to me.
