Bowerman watch list

Postby repmujhgih » Wed Apr 10, 2013 12:31 pm

Can someone explain to me why Sam Kendricks (Ole Miss) did not even get a mention for the Bowerman watch list? To me an early season 5.81m should merit at least an "also receiving mention"....

probably because the next week he jumped 5.50; with so many people PRing at Texas, the conditions were obviously super-optimal and until he proves he can consistently jump high elsewhere, the jury remains out.

Particularly since he has jumped against Andrew Irwin twice this year and been thumped both times. Head-to-head results are more important than marks on a list.
