Source: Coleman's 60-meter record won't be ratified

Christian Coleman's world record in the 60-meter dash will not be recognized by track authorities, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Friday.

Coleman set the indoor world record of 6.37 seconds on Jan. 19 in Clemson, South Carolina. But the person said the record will not be submitted for ratification by USA Track & Field because there was no "zero gun" test and because electronic starting blocks were not in use. The blocks measure false starts.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak about the decision before it is made public.

A "zero gun" test is used to check the automatic timing system at track events.

With the record wiped away, Maurice Greene will retain the fastest 60-meter time of 6.39 seconds he first set in 1998 and equaled in 2001.

The 21-year-old Coleman won the silver medal in the 100 meters at the track world championships last year in London, beating Usain Bolt but finishing behind American teammate Justin Gatlin.

Coleman ran the 6.37 last month in his season-opening race, bettering his previous personal record by 8 hundredths of a second.

Because the record will not be ratified, Greene remains the only person to run under 6.40 in the 60 meters.

Coleman is expected to run in the 60 again on Saturday in Boston, and the U.S. indoor championships start Friday in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The indoor world championships are scheduled for March 1-4 in Birmingham, England.

Mac Engel: Gary Patterson needs to speak out on lawsuit

Published: Thursday, February 22, 2018 @ 6:02 PM

TCU and its head football coach, Gary Patterson, have been keeping silent for the most part on the lawsuit filed by former wide receiver Kolby Listenbee.

After issuing an initial brief statement when the lawsuit was first filed and submitting a request to be removed from the list of defendants, TCU has kept mum. Gary Patterson also hasn’t said anything on the matter.

But with Listenbee adding to his suit and alleging an extensive history of mistreatment by the TCU coaching staff, Patterson needs to break his silence, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Mac Engel. 

“Gary Patterson, say  something. To someone. Anyone,” Engel implored the coach. The longtime columnist went down the list of allegations by Listenbee and chalked most of them up to “just football.” But even though injuries are a part of the sport, Engel thinks Patterson needs to make a statement to the media to explain his side of the story.

“As far as implied pressure on players to play through pain or injury, that’s the truth. Because every coach does starting in high school. Because that’s football. As far as what Gary thinks about all of this? Who knows? He’s not talking. He should. His character and his program are headed to trial.”

LOOK: Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer writes $10K check to local Boys & Girls Club

Published: Thursday, February 22, 2018 @ 5:34 PM

A promise is a promise!

Mississippi State women’s basketball coach Vic Schaefer held up to his deal with the Greater Triangle Boys & Girls Club, whipping out his checkbook after the Bulldogs victory against Auburn on Thursday night and writing a check for $10,000.

The reason? Mississippi State fans surpassed 110,000 people in attendance this season as Bulldogs games, and that was what Schaefer promised if that goal was achieved.

The Boys & Girls Club got a bigger surprise when given the check after the game, as Schaefer had arranged for a few other people to get involved, raising $36,000 more with the grand total coming to $46,000.

Kudos to Schaefer for holding up his end and helping raise even more money for the cause.
