    Does it work for you? All I'm getting is the facebook page, but no live action.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    BYU probably secured an at large bid to nationals. UNM and Colorado are 2d and 1st in the nation.

    but they held out Clinger and two others from the top five. So they are rested for nationals.

    Men's full results. They did what they wanted to qualify.

    http://www.runnercard.com/results3/e...a-34a7f81be818

    They held out their number 2, 3 and 6 runners, Daniel Carney, Casey Clinger and Jonathan Harper, and still defeated number 5 Colorado.

    NAU raced its top team.

    http://www.nauathletics.com/news/201...spx?path=cross

    The men will be running its top team of Matt Baxter, Tyler Day, Geordie Beamish, Andrew Trouard, Peter Lomong, Harvey Nelson and Cory Glines.

    31 total, 18 automatic bids and 12 at large bids. BYU would get an at large bid maybe with its second team. It is a deep team, the deepest BYU may ever have. BYU has two freshmen, one Casey Clinger the consistently third place runner, who postponed his mission to run. We won't see him next year and I don't know about this year's recruits.

    I just got a text from a friend who coached the usual NAU #7 runner last year in high school. He took the day off to rest for Nationals. Going to be a great race between the cougs and lumberjacks.

    I did the math, and if the 2 and 3 runners run their normal races, BYU would have nipped NAU today. Of course that didn't happen and a lot of teams will be running a tight race at Nationals.

    Here's a good article about the upcoming battle between BYU and NAU at the national championships this weekend.

    I wish there were a way to watch the race aside from paying $30 to flotrack. Hopefully BYU will run another periscope or Facebook live feed like last week.

    Yeah, that is crazy that it is not televised.

    That ticks me off as it was once free.

    that is a great analysis. Didn't Jonathan Harper also not run at Regionals?

    My kids are running on their CIF meet this week in Fresno and work schedule made it so that I can be there. In meetings in Sacramento till then.

    This may be my son's last race ever, unless he qualifies for state, needs to be top 12.

    My daughter is going for the win. Will be so fun to be there. She is trying to run low 19s, but that will tough. She hasn't run on a fast course yet this year.

    Good luck to your children, and enjoy Dad. Once these days are gone, they are long gone until and if your grandchildren pursue the sport. I remember the many long rides to practices and games, sometimes feeling they were a lot of work, but not they are gone, I wish I could bring them back every now and then.

    Good luck to the piney kids. Are they running at Woodward park on the state meet course? That's a fairly fast course, with just a couple of moderate uphills.

    Yep. When my son decided to take the XC season off to instead work, my wife and I were way more upset about it than we should have been. I just really enjoyed the meets and team activities. I still get to know the team and the coaches fairly well when they send their injuries my way, but it's not nearly the same as having someone to cheer for at all of the meets.

    Yes, their meet is on the same course. Nice warm up for a week and a half later.

    My old HS XC coach is in Louisville this weekend for the national championships. One of his prized pupils is a stud on NAUs team, so he traveled back east to watch and support him. He is a hardcore evangelical Christian, and would often playfully give all of the LDS kids, who made up a big chunk of our team, a hard time. He's a great guy, and we still text back and forth all the time. He couldn't pass up the opportunity to snap a picture with the BYU women's team this morning as he walked by their tent. He said they were super friendly and more than happy to take a pic for me.
