ESPN coverage of NCAA Track championships

Why on earth do they show the coverage on two of their networks? They showed the first hour on ESPNU, then switched to ESPN2. They are showing replays of college basketball on the U version? I don’t get it.

The number one team in the nation looks good so far. 4 X 100 relay made the finals. Devin Chase qualified in Steeplechase, 100 M hurdles prelim won by Janeek Brown in personal best. Payton Chadwick getting ready to run hurdles prelim.

Isn’t the 10,000 tonight?

Yes, for the women.

Gilbert Boit placed 9th last night. He was the only Arkansas entrant.

Here is the schedule/results index page: NCAA Division I Championships

We shoukd be thankful they are covering it live. Few years ago, it was on taped delay basis, all in one three hour segment. And they only showed the finals. Now it is 4 days of live coverage spread between the three ESPN networks. I will take it.

Of course you are right, PJ. It is just annoying, but I’m loving the coverage.

I know I shouldn’t complain, but Arkansas is not wearing maroon. Just sayin.

Shouldn’t expect anything else from ESPN, thanks for posting the schedule.


My family and I enjoyed the live coverage here in the land of swaying palm trees, green mountains and blue water. Called the Hogs when they won the national title!
