Maybe the weather led to some things not being done, but this Relays seems like less of a show than normal. Where were the big elaborate video intros for the pro events? Where were the fireworks? It just seemed to be a lesser event this year, in terms of spectacle AND the university field.
My friend and I take note of the big programs that visit each year (been doing it since 2009), and this year was definitely the worst we have seen in terms of cool schools. If we are going to become B1G and Big 12 schools only, at least get all the midwest schools in those conferences there in full force. Obviously getting Maryland, Penn State, Rutgers won't happen because Penn is so much closer. Why I didn't see more Oklahoma, Kansas, Oklahoma State and Kansas State this year... dunno. But they gotta be there. And then snag some Pac12 schools to go along with Utah.
