      If they could clone Williamson and Wariner, they could run sub-2:55.

      It's all up to Fitts and Davis now.

        no, but I think the Texas women will be close to 3:01

          And of the 12 men on teams that ran prelims of 3:01 and 3:02, only 2 are seniors . . . could we have sub-3:00 finals two years in a row?

            Lot of individual events prior to then. We'll see how everyone comes out of them.

              New Zealand's NR is 3.05!
              And to add to this - NZ's 4x100 NR is 39.25, 7 teams ran faster in the HEATS at NCAA! Haha

                Good point, the big guns are all in the 400 and I'm willing to bet that it will take a low 45 just to make the final.

                  Yeah, but even with the events prior, it is the 4x400, the pinnacle of track and field, the end of the meet. I don't think it will be the open races that will get to them. They'll have plenty of adrenaline to get them through. A better reason for a less than spectacular time would be holding back because of trials in a month...

                    Let's see, New Zealand has a population of about 3 million or so. How many North American cities have a larger population? At least ten, by my cursory Google search. What are their 4x400M records?

                    By the way, how many Americans ever beat Peter Snell, John Walker, Dick Quax, or Rod Dixon, to name just a few? Apart from Australia, what country of relatively small population has produced so many world class athletes in all kinds of sports?

                      Baylor's splits:

                      (can't vouch for the accuracy of the first two, but I assure you Wariner and Williamson's are dead-on)

                      1st leg: 46.4
                      2nd leg: 46.2
                      Wariner: 44.3
                      Williamson: 44.9
                      "Run fast and keep turning left."

                          Jamaica has a population of less than 3 million too.

                            Rob, why don't you and your buddies go talk about Rugby on a Rugby board. This is about NCAA'S, so quit always tearing down American athletics.

                              I think Rob was just defending NZ and the like.

                              Anyway, 2:59 is MUCH harder than most seem to think. It seems like every year someone says 2:59 is within reach but it hasn't happenend since 1992 when Georgia Tech did it in... Austin. I can still see Derek Mills' last 250, especially passing Baylor on the inside in the last 100. Only two teams have done it and both had multiple athletes who went on to OG gold.
