... and even more Gophers, here in the Yes/No post!

The University of Minnesota men's track team will continue the warm weather portion of their outdoor schedule this weekend in Arizona. The Gophers are coming off a great indoor campaign where they won Big Tens and finished 14th at Nationals. Led by NCAA indoor shot put runner-up Aaron Studt, the team will try to build on their early successes with another strong meet.

Yes/No will follow Studt to the desert and see if he can continue his hot streak:

Yes/No: Will Aaron Studt surpass 62 feet (18.89m) in the shot put at the Sun Angel Track Classic on Saturday?

Note: Aaron Studt is a junior at the U of M. He was an indoor Big Ten Champion and all-American in the shot put this year. Studt was in 5th place going into his last throw at indoor NCAA's -- he then unleashed this monster throw, sailing 63-6 1/4, a career-best, and nabbed 2nd place. Studt threw 62-11 1/4 to win Big Tens. The Big Ten recently featured Studt in an article on their website. Heat sheets for the Sun Angel Classic show Studt matched up with indoor national champion Ryan Whiting, and are posted HERE.

To play our game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us at DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 10:00 p.m. CDT Saturday, April 11th. Please put your answer in the subject line of the e-mail and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail. 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.

My Answer: No.

Last week’s question was another tough one as only 3 contestants answered correctly with "no" when asked the question "Will Katie McGregor break 15:50 at the Carlsbad 5000 on Sunday?" The race remains tight as 11 contestants are within 2 points of the leader - Kyle Serreyn.

You can find the full leaderboard HERE.

Good luck and thanks for playing Yes/No on DtB!
