Carson has a wierd view on 400 meter. Alot of stuff he does he stole from Baylor but he puts his little twist on it I think. I remember his thinking though for racing the 400 was run 300 meters all out and try to hold on the last 100. Thats why you will never see a ECU quarter miler catch someone the last 100 meters. Course he might have changed that thinking with Merritt He has mellowed alot this year. But relays are his thing. Thats what he loves.
