      You know I can't reveal my sources. Its protected under the constitution.

      I was considered the "go-to" knowledge/trivia guy on my college track/cross country team (athletes and coaches) and for anything distance (800m on up) with a specialty in the Marathon.

      Can probably give you some "very good" specialist but I want to know what your going to use it for first.

            A guy with whom I was on the Daily Bruin sports writing staff at UCLA around 1982-83 named Tom Feuer is the most knowledgeable track expert I've ever known. In recent years, he's done color commentary on Fox Sports coverage of the Pac-10 and Big-12 meets. If you're out there, Tom, send me an e-mail (by clicking where my name is highlighted).
