Bruin Men Open Indoor Season Ranked No. 8

Jan. 22, 2004

In the January 20th edition of the Trackwire 25, the Bruin men are tied for No. 8 in the nation with Florida, with a projected 22 points at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Topping the list is Arkansas, the 2003 Indoor Champions, with 61 points. Auburn is ranked second (40 points), followed by LSU (No. 3, 36 points), Stanford (No. 4, 35 points) and Minnesota (No. 5, 28 points). UCLA is one of only two Pac-10 teams ranked in the Top-10.

The Trackwire 25 projects a hypothetical score for the NCAA meet, factoring in injury reports and other variables supported by information gathered from coaches and NCAA-qualfying competitions across the country. This projection is generated by scoring the Dandy Dozen, a power ranking of the top 12 athletes and relay squads in each NCAA event.

The factors used to build the D12 include quantitative values that measure performances in past major competitions (such as conference championships, national championships and Olympic competition), durability and freedom from injuries, demonstrated ability to compete well in multiple rounds of competition, ability in other events, head-to-head competition with other top athletes, and personal or seasonal bests.
