This morning, NC State should have done enough to hold off UVA for the lead, especially with a strong distance crew, and the battle for 2nd could come down to the mile.

Meanwhile, Virginia Tech’s morning should blow open the race for 4th, with the Hokies now projected to score nearly 70 points more than Florida State. Notre Dame is dangerous in the distance events, so they could make a run at FSU.

Further down, watch for Georgia Tech’s milers to rack up some points and pass Pitt in the team standings.

Hi Robert, Did you score John Walker in the 1650 for UVA? He’s seeded last but should be top 3. Looks like coach sandbagged his entry time for strategy. That’ll make a big difference in the mile scores. Thank you for your continued great articles.


I’d be shocked if Walker finished in the top 3.

What did he go?


he’s entered with a 1000 time. it’s not a strategy.

ACC fan

19:16 is a 1000 time?


he’s entered with 9:16…come on, think


Walker is recovering from mono apparently. Top 10-16 might be a realistic goal for him but probably not top 3.


Hey guys! Before we start getting mean >:( let’s just remember what’s most important… Having fun and enjoying our sport!!

Sounds like a Boston college mindset.


Just don’t forget UVA jumped on the relay last night and didn’t get called

Timing is everything

I think you meant to say they timed it perfectly and it made the difference!


Coincidence? I think not


They didn’t jump per the officials.


The video is close. Just suspect when Louisville was out for a start that looked cleaner.

-.14 RT, guess it helps when you got a lot of money, The ACC doesn’t want to upset them I guess.


Just don’t forget this guy is salty.

Wahoo Wah

Still bitter about augie ^ leaving UVA but UVA being in a better place because of it.
