  • Cragg/McDonnell quote

    (In pulling Cragg's second appeal, Arkansas head coach John McDonnell said) “He would have wanted to run, but we thought it would be in his best interest not to. You don’t get prepared to run in a race like that overnight. I didn’t want to jeopardize his health and future career, since it’s an Olympic year.---"

    Is that why he was entered in three distance events at the Conference meet (which supposedly hurt his calf in the first place), because of concern for his health in an Olympic year?

    C'mon. Last year Arkansas held out two runners from the Regional for "health reasons" and had them fresh for the NCAA. This time they got nailed for it. Sadly, who loses? Cragg, and everyone who buys a ticket at Austin. Straighten up, John!
