    But there's another factor as well. An important reason why the meet always ends on Saturday is that some schools (most notably BYU) refuse to compete on Sundays for religious reasons.
    Both of those reasons are even more reason to place the meets in areas that have less chance at postponement. And I understand that someone needs to want to hold the meet.

      A couple of 54's are advancing to NCAA's out of the West, while in the East, it took 53.14 just to make it to the quarterfinals. Is this due to the bad weather and schedule change or just the weakness of the West in this event?

        I'm guessing weather-related (looks like it's windy) but only 4 of the top-10 seeds were in the West regional.

          Such that, in the men's 800, the new qualifying arrangement was to take the winner of each of six heats, and the next six fastest, to Eugene. Whereupon Jonah Koech and Collins Kibet running in Heat 6 produced a 1:49.89 (22nd fastest) and 1:50.87 (28th fastest), respectively. Kibet (winning 1:47.23 at the Pac 12 conference meet) is eliminated. Strange.

            Perhaps Kibet didn't realize that only the winners advanced with the revised schedule. Either that or he had a really bad day.

                    Why does it say DNF in the results? Are you at the meet? Either way it's still a shocker since she had a chance to challenge Shamier Little IMO.

                      They mentioned she had a leg issue on the telecast.

                        Turns out to be an excellent idea to run early. All of the running events except the final heat of the men's steeple finished before today's first lightning/weather delay.

                          I watched some of it and they moved quickly through the races.

                            Live women's HJ results are confusing. They are listing a 3rd flight (with only 3 competitors), but I am trying to figure out if those are just ladies who passed all the way up to 1.80. Never mind looks like it is a jump off for the final qualifiers.

                              Good riddance to that round. I've rather enjoyed watching these "winner take all+3/6" races today

                                jazzycylist: I can assure you no coach here was asked about how we felt. The decision was made ouot of NCAA headquarters in Indy. We received text messages and e-mails throughout the night about changes to the meet. Lots of coaches didn't know about the changes until early this morning when they woke up!
