    I think its more to the effect of Buffalo not meeting some payment deadlines on the rights fees and other assorted obligations to USATF.

    That reads as if A&M somehow was able to "buy" the nationals away from Buffalo. ??????

    You've also got a significant humidity factor to think about. Buffalo summers are nowhere near the humidity of College Station. Looking at last year's weather on the 26th shows a much cooler evening in Buffalo because of a lack of humidity. Another instance of the distance athletes' safety and performance not being taken into account when money is an issue.

    And there's someplace you DO wanna run distance races?

    Last June 26

    Buffalo: high of 87, low of 66
    College Station: high of 92, low of 70

    Translation: I don't wanna be running distance races either place.

    Michael, I'll take that bet. The WJC standards are easily achievable in 80-degree weather -- that is the norm for evenings in late June in College Station.

    Jr Nationals moved

    USATF Jr Nationals has been moved to Texas A&M on the same weekend as previously scheduled. All the distance athletes better have their qualifiers before the meet, becuase they'll never hit a standard in Texas in June.
