Many of the top Minnesota collegians will travel south to compete on the lightning-fast, over-sized track at Iowa State this weekend. The University of Minnesota will attempt to show their strength as many top Gophers will be seeking a national qualifying time.
We'll head down there, too, to play this week's edition of Yes/No.
Last week, 18 contestants correctly predicted that less than four Minnesotans would finish in the top six of the men’s and women’s open races at USA Cross County. Four weeks of Yes/No competition have finally established a lead pack in our year-long contest. Currently leading the competition are: Toby Hatlevig, Pete Gilman, Mick Hondo, Lori Anne Peterson, Derek Johnson and, yours truly, Doug Cowles all with perfect scores of 4 points each.
The race is still tight -- there are 26 contestants within 2 points of the lead.
To play our game, simply type “yes” or “no” into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us before the deadline. We will continue to offer a bonus for participants making their debut in Yes/No – a correct answer will be worth two points for any first-time players.
This week’s question is ...
Yes/No: Will Ibrahim Kabia run 6.63 or faster in the 60 meter dash prelims and/or finals at the ISU Classic Saturday?
Note: Kabia, The U of M's highly decorated senior captain, will compete against 100+ other sprinters in the 60 meter dash at Iowa State. The time of 6.63 has special significance as it would tie Kabia’s school record as well as automatically qualify him for the NCAA Division 1 Indoor National meet. He is currently ranked 6th in the country at this distance. Kabia was an All American in the 60 meter dash in 2007 as well as the 2008 Big Ten Champ in the 100. He has career bests of 6.63 (60) and 10.29 (100) and has already run 6.64 and 6.65 in 2009.
Send your "yes" or "no" answer to DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 11:59 a.m. CST Saturday, February 14th. Please put your answer in the subject line of the e-mail ... and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail.
My Answer: No.
Good luck and thanks for playing Yes/No on DtB!
