Does anyone know what the rule is here? Of course, indoors and outdoors are different because of the nature of the indoor track and the limited number of slots in a section (versus eight outdoors).
The live results page already lists what teams are in what heat, so I guess they're not gonna change it.
That is irrelevant if the rule is not the rule that you are assuming. The fact that the listing shows a plan that cannot at this point make the adjustments that are made in some championship meets does not mean that the adjustments cannot be made. i will guarantee you that if you go look at some meets, for instance the Big Ten last May, you will see that they live results page listed teams in the 4x400 sections that were not the way the 4x400 sections were finally run. Note, this really only applies to the 4x400.
Big 10 is the one conference I'm aware of which runs its 4x400 final in the manner you're describing.
