    As always, looks like Oregon has more depth. Those 4th, 5th and 6th place points are important.

    Yeah, it's a little annoying. From the 800 up they have 17 entries to our one! Our real lack of depth is in the field events (on the women's side that is).

    For the men, always. With only 12.6 scholarships you have to be 'spot on' with your recruits. The women with 18 can have more flexibilty, but are still limited.

    I don't know what Oregon does up there, but I'm curious to know how they can get that many athletes. Walk-ons for sure and I assume a few split scholarships, but you need full rides for the primo recruits.

    Don't want to use the "C" word but Oregon does manipulate the process. They probably offer academic scholarships to people who just happen to be tracksters. Just guessing.............

    My understanding is that in-state students pay a much lower tuition than out of state students. That definitely helps with their depth.
