          Mekhissi breaks and stops with a lap remaining. Is it ok to curse at this stage?
          Fire Impossible.

                      Funny flash quote from Mekhissi:

                      [to French media] don't talk to me. You are going to say I pretend to be injured.

                          How could it be worse? Alcorn quits less than halfway into the race (while tapping at his chest on the sideline, an official asked if he needed some water; I'm thinking he needed some heart), McAdams runs last (a "mere" 40 seconds off his seasonal best), and Huling (25 seconds slower than his seasonal best) would have been last, except someone dropped out. I'll give Huling a touch of credit for at least running with the leaders through 70% of the race. Our best Steeplechaser (Fam) decided to go a different direction this year; instead of being a World's finalist, he's sitting at home.

                          Until we start running this race as a normal HS event, we'll continue to languish in mediocrity. Too bad Dan Lincoln decided being an MD was more important than running

                            If our guys are going to be running like his, we may as well not even send a SC team in the future. What an embarrassment. Did they all just decide to go an party all summer?

                              Not sure if running the event more in HS is the answer. Much like the wST (with the exception of Barringer and Willard) the athletes are just not that good. Obviously this crop ran way below their potential but the 13:1x/27:xx type guys aren't running the event at the moment. When they do (Lincoln, Famiglietti) they make finals.

                              Regarding Lincoln, he was training with Schumacher's group earlier this year while still studying medicine but hurt his Achilles again. Not sure if he will have another go when that heals. Needless to say, once he starts his residency it will effectively end his running career no matter the integrity of his calcaneal tendon.
