Do you know that other sports, basketball, softball, baseball don't have regionals in their budget. It comes from a championship budget that the school has or should have, at least it did in my school. We didn't pay a dime out of our budget to go to regionals!!!!!

As for the guy who said we'd spend the same money to go to the national meet he is wrong. The NCAA pays for us to go to the national meet, not this "first round of nationals"
After reading this I know realize none of you are college coaches, were good college athletes, or have ever seen a college budget.
And for us it takes a lot more then 5 hours to make it to a major track meet. If we want to go to a good meet we have to fly. We don't all live on the west coast.
