    Finally. I’ve been waiting for this list ever since they said they were going to compile it. I had no idea that Paulsen’s 10.60 from last year was FAT.

      Yea, so they say. But even though those are supposedly FAT times wind conditions are not noted. I say that because FAT times are not official records if they are over the wind limit. Believe it or not a strong wind to the back can improve a 100 time by more than 3 tenths of a second. Winds in excess of 2.0 meters per second are not counted as official state high school records in many states and never in college or pro. Kenzo Cotton had a wind speed of 2.1 when he ran his 10.61 in Kansas—just barely over the allowable speed. So you can pretty much expect that he will post legit sub-10.6 times in the future.

        10.60 FAT during the season, then 11.1 during state makes me wonder how legit it is.

    The only meet I’ve ever seen with a wind instrument is the state meet. Having FAT and wind instrument would give college coaches a better idea of talent as well. Hopefully more schools will continue to invest.
