  • 2017 NCAA Indoor Championships

    NCAA indoor is this weekend, and no thread?
    Florida big favorite on men's side with 11 scoring oportunities, and numerous possible winners (Bates x2, Holloway x2, Brown x2[although nh in hj at SEC], 4x4). Oregon counting on Cheserek for 3(4 with dmr) wins, but need a couple other athletes to score to have a real shot at title. Arkansas (winner of SEC with 8 of top 10 ranked teams) has 12 scoring opportunities, but few projected winners.
    Oregon women are an even bigger favorite, with big points expected in 60, 200, 3k, 60h, dmr. Arkansas will battle for 2nd (with strong 400, middle distance, Weeks twins in pv) with Georgia's field event barrage (pentathlon, hj, lj, tj- Orji possible double winner).

          Schedule includes the Women's 3000, but not the heat sheets out today!!
          Also, on the results page, the races are listed, but no names on the start lists!!
          Will they have both a 5000 AND 3000??
          Why isn't it listed with the heat sheets?

          OOPS!!!
          I missed the fact that the heat sheets are divided into EACH DAY!!!
          The 3000 is on the 2nd day--and I hadn't checked that out yet!!
          Sorry!

            3000m First event listed under women day 2.

            Both events are being contested (5000m day 1).

              CBS at one time would televise almost all NCAA Nat'l Championships; too bad someone else not doing so.

                The days of seeing all important sporting events over the air are coming to a close. These days even the College Football National Championship game is on cable (ESPN), and now they're selling TVs without antenna inputs. However, there will be a two-hour NCAA Indoor replay show airing on ESPN the following day.

                  Note: there will be no separate by-event forum for this meet. The last couple of times we tried it was pretty much a waste of time, as most events went largely/completely unremarked.

                    Why not a Men's thread and a Women's thread; that way there are not too many events. An additional cut would be Track and Field. With four threads, you could have the Top 10 listing [10 Track, 7 Field for each gender].

                      As for the multies:
                      Men - even without Luca Weiland this final is going to be probably the deepest in history with potentially 4-5 athletes threatening the 6,000 barrier. The two stars of the qualification period Devon Williams and Tim Duckworth are expected to fight for the gold, but as always in multi-event expect the unexpected.
                      Kendell Williams is the clear favorite among the women and almost broke her CR couple of weeks ago. She is in good shape in four of the five events (save SP) and in ideal competition maybe even threat the AR. Brooks should win the Silver and there is an open battle for the last medal.

                            I would caution that the sprint straight at A&M isn't necessarily regarded as super conducive to quick times.

                              Because there are some events that will deserve their own threads.
