Update to Collegiate Rankings

Track and Field: NCAA Championships

With most of the major collegiate conferences on tap this weekend, that means the NCAA Championships are just around the bend. At the beginning of the season I gave my predictions for those collegians I felt were the favorites to win their respective events in Eugene. Seems like a good time to update that list as they begin to position themselves and their teams.

Looking back at the first list I don’t see that many changes. Mostly because there really isn’t much of a collegiate season – mostly competing on the relay circuit. So as we really get into the “championship” portion of the collegiate season I’m sure we’ll begin to get a better idea of just where all the athletes really are. Which means I’ll probably have to come back just before Nationals for one final update. So following is how I see things as everyone prepares to head into battle.
