    ^ ^ Amen to this. I love (for the most part) your passion and insight for athletics, aaronk. I would love to meet you someday, and just talk T&F for hours. It is tiresome though, when passion crosses the border to critical accusations. Even highly trained adults, at times, make mistakes.
    Oh, come on, admit it---you (& others here!) just like to criticize ME!!
    (LOL)
    But seriously, let's look at this for real!
    A woman (an athlete!) does something bad, and we can't criticize her??
    Because of her age?
    Because she's an Oregon Duck?
    Because she's female?

    Men & Women drop batons, false start, behave like idiots, flaunt their bodies instead of their talents, under-perform for one reason or another (losing their team a meet, or....!!), and yes, run out of their lanes & get DQ'ed!

    How many times has any or all of the above happened---to men or women, of any age, star power (or lack thereof)....and we have NOT been at least a little bit critical?

    That said, I have no feelings, one way or the other, about Deajah Stevens!
    I DO have feelings about a----yes, I'll say it again!---stupid mistake costing an athlete not only a fantastic Collegiate Record, but losing her team a probable (if she ran as well in the final) 8 or 10 points!
    It could, and should, have been prevented
    (Especially her throwing all caution to the wind in a---heat!!)

    But yes, maybe I went a bit overboard in my "vitriol"!
    Maybe I should have just smacked my head, and yelled at my 4 walls instead!!

    I have no doubt Ms Stevens will be a MAJOR star in the future---starting this outdoor season!
    And be assured that with every great performance, I'll be thrilled, and will PRAISE her to the hilt!!

    P.S. I don't travel anymore, and I don't have a phone!
    But I'd love to converse with you (and anyone!!!) about T&F---any time!!
    Via Skype, Facebook chat, PM's on Twitter!

    (I "chat" with Tara Davis's dad on Twitter quite often!!)

    Its crazy to see that TA&M now has 7 of the top 10 NCAA 4x4 times. And they are all within the last 2 years...

    Breaking a school record there wont mean much a few years after your gone...

    Thought he was going to get hung up on the turn. He's a keeper.

    Just noticed that Tx AM had to disqualify Florida's Fusasi in the 400m to win the meet. Dejavu all over again (usually they dq the 4x4).

    Kerley was in a different race than the Bama anchor.

    He ran with great intelligence.

    Who knew? you can't quite win an NCAA meet with one guy. Heck of a try though for Cheserek. Actually quite an amazing career for this young man.

    Looks like Oregon men will have a serious rebuilding year next year.

    Great 4x400 final. Poor Ryan Clark hung out to dry.

    Texas A&M wins the 4X4 (pending any protest).

    Yes nice indoors....But the place has such an antiseptic feel to it. A meet in an airplane hangar...I don't think Cobo Hall was like this.

    UO is miles ahead in the women's scoring. No worries there.

    Not when I wrote that, however. Now OU has 38, others 37.5 and 36, but Ducks have no 4x4; if both T A&M and Florida are DQ'd, Oregon wins! >:-)
