2013 [2014] NCAA Outdoor Champs schedule

Interesting. That's the latest Saturday start for a few years, I believe. The last few years have featured a schedule that would allow for an afternoon live feed on the East Coast.

Good to see it's still the old format with both men and women competing every day. Weren't they planning to separate it?

Yes, and down the road they probably will.

I'm guessing the latest start in almost a decade, since we first started with the CBS-driven morning meets in Sacto.

Actually the first live CBS meet in 2006 was 2 1/2 hours and started at 12:30 P.S.T.

You're talking TV window... meet itself started at 10:00 PDT, and there were 4 events which started before noon and another two before 12:30.

And that was Plan B... the original schedule had the TV window starting at 10:30, other stuff at 09:00.

Just reviving this thread to point out that the 2014 schedule is not yet available.

I don't think this is by any means unusual. Within the last decade I remember waiting until April at least once.

The typical hangup is the finalizing of TV deals and figuring out how to shoehorn the meet into whatever that sector requires.

You're right. I checked out the thread I started on the 2012 schedule, and that wasn't out until Mar. 22.

I'm now thinking that one of the Sacramento years (perhaps the one where they pulled the trigger and went with morning competition on the last day for the first time) they didn't say until May.
