    Is this a 3peat or 4 peat in outdoor track?

    UGENE, Ore. -- The University of Florida men’s track and field team are national champions again.

    The Gators used a dramatic finish to share the 2013 NCAA crown with Texas A&M in front of a packed house at famed Hayward Field.

    Trailing Texas A&M by nine points heading into the final event the Gators claimed the 4x400-meter relay title (3:01.34) and the 10 points that came along with it. A&M – in the same race – dropped the baton but rebounded to finish eighth, giving them one point and putting them in a tie for the national title with the Gators.

    The Gators started the day with a win in the 4x100-meter relay (38.53) and got a win in the triple jump from Omar Craddock (55 feet 6 ¼).

    The national title is the fifth for the UF men’s track and field program since 2010 – three indoor titles (2010-12) and two outdoor (2012-13).

    Did something happen with the women's 4x400?

    I watched the race and I thought they were in 2nd or 3rd ... it was hard to follow as 3 or 4 teams wore white and the announcers were no help. Any way I see they finished dead last with a time WAY slower than their usual.

    Something odd happen???

    I didn't see it coming, but can I get a little love for keeping Gatorcountry informed?

    ESPNU kept saying "if Arkansas wins the 4x4 while TAMU gets last then Arkansas will win the title." They were confused- it was FLORIDA who was in this position, as I informed the board.

    So Gatorcountry had the scoop, while ESPNU viewers were not aware of the drama.

    It is nice to be right once in a while.

    Our anchor leg dropped it on the last 100- a very strange place to drop a baton, but I'm sure she was exhausted.

    Click the link for a complete recap and more quotes

    “I’m just so proud…proud of our guys, my coaching and support staff, and everyone associated with the program,” Florida head coach Mike Holloway said. “The big thing is that we recruit these guys and expect them to go out there and compete for national championships. I’m extremely proud of them. No one gave us a chance. I watched the replays of ESPN this weekend and they didn’t even mention the Gators. I told the guys to just keep fighting, be who we are and do what we do.”
