Mouse and the Gators were due for a lucky break. All those years in a row they finished behind A&M by a few points because of bad breaks. One year the 4x1 was defending champs and had the fastest time going into final but was DQ'd for a bad exchange. They would have gotten enough points to tie for the win if they had jogged the baton around the track. Another year the officials scored the shot put incorrectly and cost Mesic 2 points and the team a title.
