When Bob Osgood ran through rain
and a soggy track to finish a hurdle
ahead of Wisconsin's Jack Kellner, a
steady 14.3 man and former Big Ten
champ ,in 14 seconds fiat, what was
the reaction? Skepticism ran rife.

plenty in between handed everybody
connected with the race a raucous

and sat down to the old typewriter
to hammer out some time-honored
reasons why Osgood's mark was a
