Was impressed with the meet.

Kynard wowed, put on a show. Was impressed with the other high jumper, too. And there were a few pretty good long jumpers. Overall it was pretty cool.

They have the Big 12 Indoor Championship this week on Friday and Saturday.

Pretty good conference indoor meet for KSU.   While I haven't studied it that closely, it would appear that the men might be a couple of athletes away from a title town posting.

But that's always been a KSU track issue, so many years where just a couple of more athletes would have meant a trophy.

Low track recruiting IQ, are all Big II teams on equal footing benefits wise, are all track scholarship's partials?

no they aren't all partials, but for the most part yes they are. Essentially each school gets 12.5 for men and 18 for women T&F scholarships to split between not only the entire T&F team but the cross country team as well. It's completely up to the coaches how those are split.

Just looked through the Indoor Results.

A big fat Zero in the Men's:
(Day 2)
60
200
400
1000
1 Mile
3000
5000
60 Meter Hurdles
High Jump (Ouch, I mean OUCH!!)  But good showings in Long and Triple Jump

Now, there could be a gazzillion reasons for this, but we didn't even have anyone even make participation ribbon status in the 60, 200, 400, 1000, 1 mile run, 3000, 5000.    That's just a huge hole for not scoring, and yet the men still scored 95 points.

Admittedly I don't know enough about team make up to say why this happened.

Talked to a nicer girl once a few summers ago about track.  She did her undergrad at UMich and came here to continue working on her sport (unsure if grad asst or what).  My summary of the convo in reference to tge coach us that he is spectacular coach but doesnt recruit with emphatic energy.  Not sure how accurate that is or if I misunderstood things.
