It's going to be close, but the Texas women have FIVE runners in the 200 finals, we have 1.   It's always the damn numbers that kill us.    :facepalm:

Texas just has too much right now going into the last 3 events.   It may come down to the 4x400, but it could all be over in the 5000. 

So close.

Best we can hope for is that Mitchell puts in the run of her life in the 200, and we pull out a points miracle in the 5000.

Texas scores 23 in the 200, takes the lead.  121.5 to 118.5.  We score 6.

If we can pull out a miracle in the 5000, and another one in the 4x400 it may happen.   Long shot tho  :pray:

I just looked at the 5000.   Barring cramps, it ain't happening.

The last gasp is a first place in the 4x400 and a dropped baton by Texas.

Men next to last.  It gets old seeing K-State men's track at the bottom.

Honest question. If Cliff is such a stud track coach, why are his best results in field events? Track and field, afte all.

Once you get past the first few teams in the rankings it's basically participation ribbons.

Half of our contingent (M&W) heading to Eugene are high jumpers, if we could just do a little better recruiting in the sprints and distance events.   :dunno:

the way it was explained to me wasn't so much recruiting, but numbers of high quality recruits.  But yeah, we need to step our game up.

I don't understand. Does this mean that we are not recruiting talented athletes? We just recruit average athletes?

I know it's been out for a few days, but the ladycats are #4 in the country and the guys are #20. Anybody got any info if the stud ladycats are actually that studly or is this overhyped? Hopefully they aren't overhyped  :ksu:

Akela Jones is the real deal - she could score 20 points at the national meet by herself. That alone would likely put the team in the top 10.

Sorry I missed this.  What I meant was we have a few stellar athletes and some filler, whereas schools with lots of success have an entire roster of stellar athletes.  Our coach is still very well respected and people want to be coached by him, but it's almost like Cliff and CO would rather have a few great athletes to spend their time with than many with little time. /IknowIdontMakeSense

This post is pretty funny wrapped around edn's posts about recruiting.

Also Rovelto is a heralded high jump coach, javelin throwers aren't going to come to K-State solely based off of the fact that Rovelto has coached 3 Olympic high jumpers here.

Even though your post supports have I'm saying.....
I just had a nice conversation with a young lady who was a grad assistant a few years ago...made sense based on the individual success we've had versus team success.

The DeLoss Dodds Invitational is this Friday and Saturday in Ahearn. Good opportunity to see the teams "up close."
