    Reminds me of a horse race I watched a replay of today. He ran in the blue and white checkerboard too

    When Kentucky wins a national championship as a team in track then u can have the conversation as Kentucky being a track school. Listing Kentucky as a track school is comparing them to a track team like Oregon, Texas a&m, Florida state, Arkansas, etc. I ran cross country and track in high school and college and know a good deal about college track and field and kentucky isn’t one of those schools when it comes to success in track and field. With that being said it is awesome that we do have the most electric runners/hurdlers in not just the country but in the world on our team. Plus that guy duckworth winning the decathlon at the championships as well. UK is definitely headed in the right direction but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.

      UK women finished 4th in team competition; I didn’t see Ore, TA&M, Fla St, or Ark ahead of them, and we had 3 National Champions. And, Sydney absolutely smoked ‘em.
      Tim Duckworth was crowned NCAA’s Greatest Athlete. I would say that qualifies as a track school, and I’ll take it.
      Congrats to all.

      You sure have mastered the art of finding the dark cloud inside a silver lining.

    Could have (should have) tied for 2nd overall, if the first two legs of the 4×400 had actually run up to their capabilities. Bad timing for a bad race.
