    Heat sheet for today's events- http://www.cubuffs.com/pdf9/4721606.pdf?DB_OEM_ID=600

    Note- for those who like the "fun" side of sports (although maybe that fun for the runners?), fans at the meet will want to stay if they can for the 4 X 400M relay races, usually the last events of track meets (scheduled to start 3:00 today). For the Buffs, looks like this is the designated meet this year where the coaches (or tradition?) have the distance runners (~ 2 teams per gender per the heat sheet) gut their way through a 4X400M sprint relay. Obviously sprints are not their "bread and butter", but assume bragging (and ragging on) rights with the other distance runners may be on the line today!
    (I believe this tradition is typically performed at the earlier Jerry Quiller meet, but that was snowed out this year. It will also be fun to see how competitive the distance teams can be against the sprint teams this year, although obviously it won't be close overall. At last year's Quiller, looks like the CU sprint team beat the one men's distance team running by a little under 8 seconds (3:21.76, although it looks like that team was only 1/2 distance, with the other 1/2 being CU sprinters), while the top distance women's team finished in 4:08.17, a little over 20 seconds behind 1st place .)
