USC just busted out a 3:00.77 in the mile relay to take down the world record.

Wow....

SuperHornet's Athletics Hall of Fame includes Jacksonville State kicker Ashley Martin, the first girl to score in a Division I football game. She kicked 3 PATs in a 2001 game for J-State.

•USC sophomore Michael Norman streaked to a world record in the men's 400 meters, clocking a blistering 44.52, breaking the 13-year-old record of Kerron Clement (44.57) and claiming his first individual NCAA title.

Norman wasn't finished. In the final event, USC — with Norman anchoring — lowered the world record in the 4x400 set a week earlier by Poland (3:01.77) in the world championships. USC finished in 3:00.77, followed by Texas A&M (3:01.39) and Florida (3:01.43). All three times were better than the existing WR.

Because USC's Rai Benjamin is from Antigua, the time does can not count as a world record. Texas A&M's quartet was all American, however, so the Aggies would be in line for the record.

Why do world records in a relay need to be country based? I thought golf had some really stupid rules, but that's a dumb rule too. Four guys run the best mile relay ever and it doesn't count because they're not all the same nationality? Dumb.
