Heading into the 4X400 Dwight Stones on the ESPNU broadcast said that A&M was 9 points ahead of Arkanasas.
Then he thought A&M dropped the baton and was out of the race and he said, "If Arkansas wins the race they will win the NCAA title."
Then he realized A&M had not dropped out they had picked up the baton and would get 1 point for finishing last.
He then said, "Arkansas needs to win to tie A&M".
(All of this would be correct if his information was correct).
Meanwhile Florida and Arkansas were battling up front. Florida pulled away for the win and that was that. Texas A&M National Champions.
Except there is one problem with all this. FLORIDA not Arkansas was 9 points behind A&M heading into the 4X400.
So they were the ones who had to win to tie A&M and that's exactly what happened.
Unbelievable. How do you screw up the two teams? Don't that have statisticians helping out?
Did anyone hear them make a correction? I just saw the scores go up on the screen and was like WTF. Went online and in 30 seconds figured out what was going on.
