Re: American NCAA has killed USA Track& Field
I know the USOC has no influence on the NCAA, However the NCAA is certainly somewhat responsible for the success of teh Caribbean nations at Track! For example some 20-something year old guy from the Barbados jsut beat 2 American veterans in teh 110m HIgh Hurdles???? WTF? Who guess what trains at an American University, as well as the silver medalist from Panama who beat 2 American runners to silver. It would be an interesting discussion if the USCO puts some pressure on the NCAA! Seriously!

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
