Talking track

With the NCAA track and field championships beginning, there is a lot of talk about LSU sweeping the men's and women's team titles.

I was talking to a track coach (not from LSU) who was explaining how elite teams become elite with 12.6 scholarships. Coaches look at events where they think they can be successful then commit a good deal of their scholarship money in that direction.

This coach used LSU and the sprints as an example. Arkansas in distance events. And on and on.

It appears to be a pretty smart strategy. And one that we'll see how plays out this weekend.
