In a relay like that, the more you are familiar with each other, the better you are. That's why we try to keep that (lineup) the same. I really think this group on a good day has a chance to go under 42.0.

He has gotten better every year. We're looking for super times and leadership from him.

He's been amazing. He's stronger this year.

I thought it was a good showing. We don't usually run meets with one day in between. This time of year you want to get used to something like that because state is back-to-back (days).

We think he (Smith) has got the perfect build and speed and endurance to run those (300 hurdles).

I don't think he has the conditioning to run all the events he ran last year.
