Florida gets 6th in SEC's and then beats us in the NCAA's.  :portishead:

We had nobody in the 5k and 4x400. Two of our normal strengths. Those lost the NC. Women are looking good, though.

This is an example of why Bucknam was a bad choice to replace McDonnell.  Never should have hired a coach that doesn't emphasize distance runners the way McDonnell did. That is the key to winning so many titles the way Arkansas did for all those years.

I never understood why all the throwers don't want to come to Arkansas and compete for a team title instead of going to Iowa or Nebraska.

Agree to a point. We seem like a team with no identity. It's hard to bitch about being second in the country but we could've easily been first had we had some distance talent that we normally have. Not having a 4x400 team was a killer.

Up by 2 with one event left....and losing the team title typifies the awful 2015-2016 sports season for the Hogs.

Yeah, finishing second in the nation is just awful.  Horrible. Embarrassing. We should definitely fire all of the track coaches.   ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)
Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fellow says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace - and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

it would not have mattered.  florida and lsu dominated the 4x400, 3rd place wasn't even in the camera frame while their two anchormen were dueling it out on the home stretch.  if arkansas finished 3rd in the 4x400, florida still wins the natty by 2 points.

The women just captured their first outdoor national championship!  Dominique Scott won the 10K and the 5K!

Nope. Not at all. But our expectations in track are the same as Bama's for foozeball. Anything less than a NC is a disappointment.

1st in women's and 2nd in men's is great.  Even under McDonnell outdoor was always tough for us.

Especially after the NCAA instituted the regional system to reduce our numbers at Nationals

Which is why McD focused on guys that could run Cross Country as well as multiple events in Indoor and Outdoor.
