Subject: RE: Oldest Collegiate School Records: Olympic Champs Charlie Moore's 400mH Record Falls
Ohio State a consistent track power? I guess so. SJSU no longer has a men's program, so I'm not sure we should even bring them into the discussion.
OSU lists their school record for the 100m as 10.20 by Owens at the '36 NCAA meet, which is bull. It was a 10.2 hand-time and shouldn't be compared with auto-times like Todd Dutch's 10.30 in 2005. Owen's 220y straight PR was 20.3, inferior to OSU's current 200m record around a turn.
His LJ record is pretty meaningful, though, due to the fact that neither Paul Warfield, Joe Greene nor Chris Sanders could touch it. If Gary can get an athlete to break that record, then he should get full credit for reviving a program that hasn't been highly competitive since the days of Larry Snyder. Owen's record would have won three of the last five NCAA championships!
There's a high school around here whose PV record dates to 1929. The LJ hasn't changed all that much over the years, but when your PV record was set with a wooden pole you've got to know your program sucks.
