    Dude, compare TT history in track and field vs any big time school. Tell me what ya find. Can they have a once in awhile star....sure! But who doesn't have a once in awhile star?


    UCLA and USC have had....over a dozen Olympians in just the 100 to 400m. TT has never had a "great" sprinter. long jumper or hurdler. TCU alone has had seven sub10.00 sprinters among the alumni. TT has never had a sub10.10 guy.

    TT alumni making history

    Gil Roberts might be approaching the prime of his career as one of Americaís top quarter-milers. Thatís certainly the case if the past three days were any indication.The former Texas Tech all-American won the 400 meters Saturday at the U.S. outdoor track and field championships in Sacramento, California, running a personal-record time of 44.53 seconds.Roberts shot out to a fast start and won easily against a quality field.

    It was Robertsí third major national or international le. In 2012, he won the U.S. indoor 400 and anchored the U.S. menís gold-medal winning 1,600-meter relay at the IAAF world championships in Istanbul, Turkey.

    Oh look. I had forgotten about this, but another track and field star made history last October.

    INDIANAPOLIS -*Former Lady Raider track and field student-athlete*Ifeatu Okafor*was officially named the NCAA Woman of the Year Sunday night at an awards banquet in downtown Indianapolis.Okafor was selected from a field of nine finalists representing NCAA Division I, II and III for her achievements in athletics, academics, leadership and community service. In all, more than 450 student-athletes were originally nominated for the prestigious award which encomp es a female student-athlete's entire collegiate career.*"It's very special," Okafor said. "Texas Tech has just played such a huge role in my life. My experiences at Texas Tech have developed my character and transformed me into a better person. I'm truly grateful."

    Sunday's ceremony marked the 23rd*in the award's history, while Okafor is the first NCAA Woman of the Year from the Big 12 Conference.

    What sprinter at the time set a school record for the 100 M and had bested Harrison Dillard who won gold in the 48 Olympics in the 100 M. This sprinter turned down running for the Olympics when returning from WWII and competing with/against Mr. Dillard. Who is it?

    Dude, at least get the question right, ok? There were no Olympics in 1942/44...ok? You can't even Google right, hahaha!!!!!! Go back and read it again......ok? But.....there was another great sprinter back then, and your mystery (ha!) man was the only one to ever beat him in a big race.....who was he?

    Little man, trust me on this one.....you do not want to try this.....you will come off looking more stupid than you do now.

    The question stands. I am aware there were no Olympics ins 42/44. You did not read the question correctly (no one is surprised by that) and provided no answer.

    Try again.

    What Olympics did he turn down?

    He does hurt my feelings you thinking I wouldn't know that simple answer, which tells me you really don't get where I'm at with this stuff.

    but seriously, there were lots of Strange but True or Weird and Wacky sports books. Of the track ones, I remember the story of Emil Zatopek.

    I agree.

    How about this one....

    Don Hutson ran track (way back when) and played baseball (and football) at Alabama. So one day he had a track meet and a baseball game on the same day right there on campus. So when it came time to run the 100 yard dash he walks over dressed in his baseball uniform and wins the race, then heads back over to the baseball diamond to resume the baseball game.

    Ha~~~

    Deion Sanders had a similiar story.

    I have a similar story. Was running track and playing soccer. Star forward and ran 2nd leg on the 4x100. I was the fastest but always ended up with the back leg to give us a lead that wasn't often made up. Anyway, had a soccer game and track meet on the same day. I wanted to go to the track meet which was county finals but my dad made me go to the soccer game since I signed up for that first. After the soccer game (yep...I scored most of the goals), a parent of one of the other track guys was at the game to pick me up and haul me over to the track meet. They were already lining up for the race. I hauled across the football field and got in my spot. We ended up setting the county record for the 4x100 that day. Ended up getting 2nd at state which we took as a loss. Yep...had a lead until our 4th leg gave it up. The wind was incredibly strong that day and my leg ran with it and the 4th leg against. While both me and the 4th leg were fast, I was the bigger stronger runner and probably would have done better going into the wind that last leg. Yep...stings to this day.

    For once I believe that, only someone familiar with track knows about that second leg on a 4x1. You want your best 200m guy there so he can push the zone at near max velocity. Tons of 4x1's won/lost right there.

    Cool story and ya need more of that and less..."see me everyone aren't I funny"...since you aren't.
