    Yeah, they are "definitely" tweaking those FAT marks.

    NOT!

    I'm always extremely skeptical of NCAA times. When a college system produces *multiple* althletes who essentially outperform most "professional" athletes, you have to wonder who's running the photofinish.

    American universities are guilty of grade inflation -- why not time performance inflation too?!

    avaulteriam - you're right, of course - here's to an OT with all the players at the top of their game.

    It would have been even more interesting if Dabryan Blanton had been healthy enough to run. The indoor NCAA 60 champ hasn't run since the Big 12 meet, but he is currently riding a 15 race win streak in 4 different sprint distances.

    Personally, I think he's faster than anybody else in the NCAA's when he's healthy. It's the healthy part that bothers me...

    Burns

    >9.99w prelim.

    Burns was actually in lane 5, he didn't show up though. Must have hurt himself running that 9.99.

    tafnut-

    I know you're being realistic, but I get so much negative feelings on this board and I wonder why. Great things are happening and no one can predict the future. Just a thought.

    "Will they be able to make some noise at U.S. trials?"

    How many times have we seen great NCAA marks that can't be replicated at US Nationals? I really think that the NCAA meet is the be-all, end-all for even the most elites, and everything after that is anti-climactic. Hope that is not the case this year.

    Oh man, and that was just an NCAA final. Just wait till U.S. trials. Will they be able to make some noise at U.S. trials? that's another story. I foresee either Gay or Scales at least making the relay pool. Gay should definitely be a threat for a spot for the 200 though.

    Re: Two 10.06's?

    Finishlynx takes 1000 frames per second and the operator (Roger Jennings) can fairly easily determine which torso was ahead even though they have the same time to the 100ths. The acutal time reads out to the 10,000th (10.05xx vs. 10.05xy). Burns also was assinged a lane in the middle of the track but when he scratched or false started he is moved to the bottom of the screen but still shows his original lane assignment before the results start to pop up.
