Information on how to aid the victims of the deadly tornado in Oklahoma
The men's track program is, with a few exceptions, a glaring disaster. By my calculations, we scored a total of 5 points in the track events. Thanks to the throwers and vaulters, we made it to double figures in the scoring column. Many events the Vols used to own, like the decathlon and hurdles, had no entrants or our athletes were not close to being competitive. Coach Clark is totally incompetent -- does anyone need further proof? In just a few years he has destroyed the track & field program. Finishing next to last in a sport that used to bring glory to UT is embarrassing. He apparently thinks "a plan" is entering seven women in the 800 meters, even if only a couple of them are potential scorers. Are you kidding? Why not recruit some athletes in other events? The men's distance program has totally fallen apart. What's Doug Brown doing these days? Bring him back, or someone like him, please! Enough of this!
Congratulations to Coach Clark for putting the Vols and Lady Vols into the top 10 of the SEC. Eighth place with all of that young talent! Next year you can shoot for 7th! For a guy who claims to be a middle distance coaching guru, where was all the scoring in those races? Dear Mr. Hart -- how about a taking a new look at the failure of the combined programs?
The one success story for the Vols in this meet, Peter Okwera, transferred into the UT program and was already a top talent. All the other mediocre results are the products of Clark's pedestrian coaching ability. Can we not hire a competent coach? Oh for the good old days....
Good luck Rodney -- I hope you know what you're getting into. Coach Clark has gone through more assistants than Dooley, so I hope you have a Plan B.
At least the fact that there are no home meets means that Vol fans won't have to witness the sad state of the XC program. Clark says he is focusing on the SEC meet in Nashville -- is he hoping to crack the top 10 in the team standings? With the addition of Texas A&M and Missouri, that may be a challenge for him. Can we please end the combined program experiment?
