Looks like Golden West is trying to generate more interest in the meet then in years past, possibly trying to become relevant again! Changing locations and the general format of the meet. Anyone ever been out there? Any thoughts on the changes or stories from the past?
Not only do I think it will have no impact on whether people from the East go, I wonder whether the NCAA will look kindly at the “travel expenses” aspect especially since it’s so blatantly tied into specific performance.
In the 1970s and 1980s that meet was magnificent because it wqas ahead of its time. Now while there is some good comp, it’s not (and never will be again) what it was.
I hope no one gets in trouble for accepting these “travel expenses”
