Maybe I should blame Villanova coach Marcus O'Sullivan for my belief that I didn't have to watch the college men's Distance Medley relay.
Then again, maybe I shouldn't be surprised that O'Sullivan waited until after his team won the Championship of America to admit that he underplayed the Wildcats' chances of winning at Monday's luncheon.
I hereby plead guilty to taking the bait and missing what was apparently a thrilling contest that concluded right after I interviewed Michael Ray Garvin.
The splits were as follows: 2:56.7 for Sean Tully's 1200m leg, 46.3 seconds for Elvis Lewis' 400m leg, 1:49.4 for Jason Apwah's 800m leg and 3:58.4 for Matthew Gibney's 1600m anchor leg.
I recorded Villanova's post-race press conference, and you can listen to it in the audio player below.
