I presume he is referring to the NCAA flat to banked/oversized conversion.
The exact conversion of Hunter's time is 7:53.82 (.9885 is the factor).http://www.ustfccca.org/assets/NCAA-Indoor-Track-Size-Conversion-Charts.pdf
Conversions are fun. For most folks though, they don't have PRs from the respective track sizes and competition levels to support such conversions. For example, of me and all of my teammates' PRs over 3000m, the largest difference between flat 200m and 300m is 3.2 seconds. And that would be far more attributed to the typical level of competition and pace of race of that particular race on the 300m race. Mine is 1.1 seconds faster on the 300m track.
Banked 200m tracks are a blast up to the mile distance. Not sure I'll ever understand how sprinters deal with the elevation change for lanes 3+, but that bank in lane 1 is perfect.
