  • Rupp turning pro

    According to Ken Goe of the Oregonian, Rupp will run US Nationals in Oregon colors, then sign a pro contract. Wonder if it will be with Nike! :lol: :roll: Good news for his parents!

              I'm predisposed - pulled an abdominal muscle a few weeks back - still hurts a bit.

                Can't believe he could! Once you sign that contract you are infected with a virulent form of leprosy. Or at least that's what Ollan Cassell told me. :wink:

                  I thought the "official" collegiate season (for CR purposes) ended with the NCAA Champs.

                    So says T&FN, the only folks who keep a complete set of CRs. NCAA meet ends "official" CR eligibility, but they keep a separate list for summer competitions.

                          FAST also maintains a compilation of CRs, and they use the 31 August cutoff, with extensions beyond that date for major national team competitions in September.

                            The August 31 is no longer defensible when you have people setting "Collegiate" records after they've signed pro contracts. The NCAA would certainly disavow those people as people collegians in any way shape or form.

                              Yes, the NCAA at its hypocritical best.
