Headed to DFW for the weekend to take in the Big XII T&F Championships.  Fellow Martlatt Hall bud lives in Ft Worth and is a "track geek."  Trying to understand the obsession.

She cramped up/became injured with 200m to go in the 800m of the heptathlon. It's the final event and she went from 1st to 3rd. Very sad. She had dominated that event all year.

I wonder if they could win it all.   Anyone follow track more closely?  What are our chances?

I doubt it, but you can never tell with track. Looking over times/rankings it seems we're very good in field events but not good running events.

Yeah, IDK how well we'd do at the national competition, and so much rides on getting as much of your team qualified to be there to even get points. From the ranking that came out today (and unsure how rankings in track work, it seems to have some cumulative proprieties to it) we only moved up 1 spot after winning the Big 12 championship.

http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/trackfield-outdoor-women/d1/ustfccca

And teams like Baylor and Texas are above us (though albeit just right above us).

I think though the exciting thing is Rovelto was happy we won it a year before he thought we'd be good enough to win it.

Quote

“I thought we were a year away because this is an extremely young team,” Director of Track and Field and Cross Country Cliff Rovelto said. “It is so hard to win a conference title. But this group did not want to wait a year. They wanted it now. They competed their guts out.”


So maybe next year will be pretty special

It's always a numbers game and a log jam at Nationals.   You pull off just a few top finishes you're in the hunt.

Track and Field News bases its rankings on how they think individuals for schools will score at the national meet. They haven't updated since the weekend, but they had K-State tied for 9th in their last ranking. But, to get to the national meet, you have to qualify via regional meets and there are always some top 10 athletes who don't make it (injured, have a bad day, etc.)

Watching online and also watching the highlights.   Absolutely embarrassing attendance in Lawrence.

Track meet attendance smack talk is a new low for Dax. Unless it's the Drake relays or nationals or something, nobody GAF. Followed my brothers track and cross country meets at ULM.  :zzz:

The last time Kstate hosted there was 3000 plus there. 

It's a P5 conference championship track meet.   

Of all the things to go angry Tuck on.

Why, because you don't like it?

Dax is right about that meet last weekend, I ran in high school meets with more people.

I watched some of the live streaming and the highlights and expected a championship meet at beautifully generic Rock Chalk Park with KU having a pretty good to very good track program.   I expected to see a pretty decent crowd there, it's not that big. 

Outside of the finals Sun night with a decent smattering of people clustered around the finish line.  There was nobody there.

95% of track crowds are family and friends or middle school/HS track kids, but yes sometimes people show up. Not many track fans out there that just go to a meet to go to a meet.

I remember when track meets used to be significant events and fans used to attend. KU Relays were a really big deal in the 80s and before for example, now not so much. I don't think sports fans in general are that interested anymore.

Do you use ULM football games to make sweeping generalizations about football attendance trends?
