  • Trojan men's 4x100 relay

    Trojan men just ran 38.88, which moves ahead of Houston's 39.22. Possibly other good 4x100 relay results across the country this weekend. Barnum, Morgan Jr, Shinnick and Norman anchoring.

        First time this quartet worked together. I did notice that Brock was not included. Three off the fantastic SC 4x400 relay team.

          The four LSU relay runners are all 100-200 sprinters. Two of the Trojans are 400 specialists, Norman is 200-400 specialist and Barnum is the only 100 sprint specialist. Relay time moves this quartet to #4 on the all-time Trojan 400m relay list.

            Brock wasnt on there. Neither was Rai Benjamin. Not sure if they plan to use him on the 4x1, but he did run 20.34 indoors. By comparison Ricky Morgan, who was on the relay ran 21.11 today. Seems like they have a lot of room to go faster.

              You're mistaken about LSU's personnel. Flournoy, Mosby and Howell are all long sprinters. Furthermore I've never been of the belief that 4x100 teams need to be made up of all short sprinters in order to be successful since only one of them has to come out of the blocks. For example, in 2002 LSU ran 38.32 at the NCAA Championships with a team comprised of three long sprinters and a triple jumper and in 2003 they won both the 4x100 and the 4x400 with four long sprinters.

                Flournoy ran few 400s last year, was predominately a 200m runner. Mosby the same - he did run in the 46s in 2016. Hislap is predominately a 100-200 runner, same with Howell. This info was from the LSU Track and Field site. I was not implying. that SC runner three long sprinters on the relay was unique.

                  Hislop (not Hislap) and Vincent are short (100/200) sprinters. Mosby, Flournoy and Howell are long (200/400) sprinters. I'm just refuting your assertion that LSU ran four short sprinters yesterday because they didn't and I don't need to look it up on lsusports.net.

                  Also, my main point is that 4x100 teams comprised of short sprinters have no inherent advantage over teams comprised of long sprinters because only one runner is coming out of the blocks.
