Andrew Riley is good. One of the top hurdlers as well.

Reminds Cohete of Terrence Trammell from South Carolina back in the day. Top sprinter and hurdler who made a decent career out of it. Still competes in hurdle races and does better indoors with his great start out of blocks.

Illinois is the only Big 10 team in the top 15 for the 4x100. Just seems weird.
(Nebraska is #20)

I'm pretty shocked about that actually, especially since he's a hurdler, too. The weather just isn't good for making speed in Champagne.

Most universities in the BCS have really good indoor facilities, but still....

I'm kind of curious what people here think of the U.S. possibly getting an Olympic Medal out of former drug cheat Justin Gatlin.

Top Performances This Year:
1. Usain Bolt - Jamaica - 9.82
2. Yohan Blake - Jamaica - 9.84
3. Justin Gatlin - USA - 9.87
4. Asafa Powell - Jamaica - 9.88
5. Keston Bledman - Trinidad - 9.89

Weather does not matter for sprinters. It is all technique, strength, block work, etc.

There are sprinters/hurdlers that never run their race in practice.
