  • Wairner & Williamson deserve more credit

    I've noticed over the past couple of weeks that the two Baylor 400m runners aren't getting the pub they deserve. I mean, 44.59 and 44.80 are amazing times for April, yet Rock and his 45.23 seem to be getting more attention. Even an IAAF article basically mentioned Rock as the 400m sensation of the year. Nothing against Rock, he's having an awesome year, and I'm pulling for him. It's just that 44.59 and 45.23 are a long way apart. The Baylor boys are younger too. I also think Baylor has a good shot at going under 3:00, since Darold wasn't on the 3:01.06 squad. Same goes for Florida too. If Harris could lead off with a low 45 (since the lead leg had a 46.4 at Penn), the Gators would be right there with them. Like I said, nothing agains Rock, the other two just deserve more credit. Oh, and I'm not from TX and didn't go to school in TX, so no bias here.

    I totally agree with you. Baylor has had the best quarter-milers in the country for years and I think that people have taken that for granted. There is no reason that Baylor can't go under 3:00 if not 2:59. And for that Florida relay, the anchor Kerron Clement, a freshmen, holds the TX State Record in the 300 hurdles and when he was in high school he also ran XC!! How's that for some little known information. LSU is another team that has an outside shot at running under 3:00. Do I need to say it? Probably not but I will anyway, they have Kelly Willie on their relay who is also from the Houston, TX area, just like Kerron, and he chased after the state 400m record as well as the national record when in HS. Also, they have Bennie Brazell, who used to hold the 300m record until Kerron broke it. Oh man, how bout them Texas boys!
