  • NCAA schedule changed

    All,

    Due to current weather predictions for tomorrow, Wednesday, June 5, the NCAA Track and Field committee has made the decision to adjust the meet schedule. Please note that the Decathlon events will shift ahead 2.5 hours and all other events with the exception of the 10k will move up 2 hours. The 10k will remain at the current scheduled time of 9:08 p.m.

    Please also note that the committee is considering moving the pole vault and hammer to Friday for event safety purposes. The final decision on the pole vault and hammer will be made no later than 8 p.m. CT tonight.

    With the adjusted schedule, we will move the photographers meeting, scheduled for noon, to 11 a.m. at the media area on top of the Manor Garage. (same location as before). With this adjustment, we are also planning to open the media will call window at 10:30 a.m. for media that do not get their credential today.

      This an interesting change. Latest NWS forecast shows 70% chance of rain between 7am and 6pm and then dropping to 40% from 7pm on. Of course the real concern is likely lightning which seems quite possible almost any time this storm produces rain. Am I left to presume they moved up the schedule to allow for a break in the action of two hours or more without pushing the action past midnight?

          another update from the NCAA

          All,

          After further review of weather and discussion with ESPN the decision has been made to move all running events, with the exception of the 10k, up another 30 minutes. The most updated schedule is now listed below and running events will be televised on ESPN2 barring further weather delays.

          Decisions on the pole vault and hammer for Friday have not been finalized at this point.

              "Listed below"...where? The following got updated for the first schedule change. Has it been updated a second time for the new schedule change? Or is there somewhere else to look?

                    So, for example, the original schedule linked as a pdf at the following link--Meet Schedule (In Flux)--had the men's steeple finals starting at 7:02 p.m.

                    https://trackandfieldnews.com/tfns-n...sources-links/

                    So the NCAA then moved the steeplechase and other running events, except the 10000, up two hours. That would make it 5:02 p.m., which is what the following is now showing.

                    https://www.ncaa.com/championships/t...door/d1/events

                    Except we're now told they're moving the running events, again except for the 10000, "up another 30 minutes...." That would put the steeple at 4:32 p.m. But I'm not finding a re-revised schedule, NCAA, showing that.

                    I guess I should just wait until after the 8:00 p.m. NCAA decision on other stuff. Or wait until tomorrow morning and see what the NCAA meet website has or the T&FN message boards have posted.

                        Latest NWS forecast drops chance of rain for 7 and after to 30%. Not exactly sure I understand this time change madness.

                          Anyone know how ESPN is handling the change? Originally it was live beginning at 6:30 local time. My listings (and the listings on ESPN.com) have the schedule the same (6:30 local time).

                            Let's hope they've already got the cameras ready, but haven't updated the website.
                            That's not an unreasonable supposition.

                              just posted on the decathlon thread:

                              <<Hard rain for the men's 100. Rain started about 11:45, and the event starts at noon.>>
