Subject: RE: Patriot League Indoor 2012
Oh, man. Man. I'm afraid you're likely to be exactly right in your analysis.
I'm "outside" the PL, but I follow its schools with interest--I have friends/colleagues/former students coaching in the conference. And you're right, this can't be a *good* thing for the PL track teams.
[Yeah, I know everybody speculates about bringing in speedy/big guys with football scholarships, then having them do sprints/throws. Not that likely--fb coaches nowadays tend to prevent their scholarship guys from doing t&f (which I know is nuts, but tell *them* that).]
Do Patriot teams engage in a lot of dual/tri/quad meets? Or do they mostly do the dreary "no scoring until conference" routine? (I know that Army/Navy do scored meets, but they're in no danger of dropping t&f anyway--I'm asking about the league's "civilian" teams.) To my mind the lack of scoring meets has been a *major* factor in the dropping of men's track teams in recent years...
Also, any projections for the women's meet? You don't have to bother to post "who cares?"--I kind of do!--and has someone who *does* care done a virtual scoring, based on the performance lists?
