    Grant Holloway broke the 40 year old high hurdle NCAA record. It was 13 and he ran 12.98 tonight to be the first collegian to go under 13. He won, which makes him the first to win 3 indoor and outdoor championships. His goal this year was to go under 13. So congrats to him.

    The men's track is in the thick of it to win it all. I'll keep you posted, but it'll be tough for them to win it all again.

      He was also part of the 4x100m relay that broke the collegiate record today. 37.97-first collegiate team to ever go under 38 seconds.

        Holloway anchored the mile to a 2ND place finish. Gators finish 2nd overall to Texas Tech. Tech had too many events for the Gators to make up the ground. 60 points for Tech and 50 for Gators. Kudos to Coach Mouse again.

        It was a pleasure to have Holloway wear the Gator uniform. Although he's a junior I doubt he'll be back. One of the greatest Gators ever.

                That is phenomenal. I just saw the highlight on bspn. Congrats Grant!

                    Announcer really blows the call by incorrectly identifying Texas Tech as the DQ instead of the Clowns. In such a short race, you can't muck it up like that. Alas, what a race - nice replay of the last Gator exchange.

                    A great Gator!

                    Needs a statue outside the T&F closet or something.
