LRCUSATF DQ Report Released: Did Alberto Salazar Have Undue Influence? We Still Don't Know

We wonder if it's normal for an official to tell a coach about a foul he admits he didn't see. Then we start to go off into la-la conspiracy land as we notice a key part of the report regarding Salazar shows up in a different font. To us, the whole report reads like a 5th grader's book report, not a report worthy analysis of a decision that (illegally) fixed the outcome of a national championship race.

This week we wonder if there is a skip USAs jinx, marvel at some amazing field eventers, get ready for World Juniors, tell the suits how to market our beloved sport better, praise a racewalker, dash the dreams of those who compare Matt Llano to Ryan Hall, and wonder why Nike seems to be embarrassed by the fact that elite runners are skinny.
