    Bingo, Distant. Could they do any worse? And it's not just a few seconds of confusion. I'm just amazed that they aren't prepared with points possibilities from the night before. Shoulda mentioned what the Gators had cued up and then watch it play out. Amazes me that anyone, any network can be sooooo incredibly incompetent.

    We pulled this NC out of our butts. Took a chain of events in order for us to tie aTm. Glad we have a trophy for the trophy case, and another banner for the stadium.

    Sucks about the Cap One Cup but not gonna hang my head on that. We are National Champions people!

    Love the Holloway interview. He bristled up a bit when asked if the Gators got lucky.

    "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity."

    Yep.

    Watched the last hour of the meet today, totally embarrassing coverage by ESPN.

    Dramatic come from behind title for the Gators totally missed by the announcers/producers. Spent about 10 min covering each long distance race, yet no idea the Gators won/tied for the title until the final scores flashed on the screen right before the credits rolled. Unbelievable.

    Don't know if anyone remembers from last year but the NCAA makes teams from same region travel together. The team was on a flight back to Tally with the Holes. Hope we rubbed that trophy in their faces the whole fligh.

    There was actually a replay on last evening too, and you're absolutely right, it was a disgrace.

    On and on and on about Arkansas possibly winning the Indoor and Outdoor in the same year, and not even recognizing that UF was in a position to repeat as Outdoor champions.

    They showed Craddock winning the triple jump on his final attempt and getting us the 10 points that made the 4x400 so important; but obviously didn't even have updated scores in front of them to recognize the scenario playing out right in front of them.

    They missed a huge opportunity to celebrate an amazing come-from-behind win by fabricating a different scenario and running with it, to the exclusion of all other possibilities.

    I'm betting the head honchos at ESPN are letting them hear about it.

    showed the match again - on espnu just now - since the gamecock/tarheel super regional was postponed due to rain.
    funny listening to the announcers when you know the results.
