    Wisconsin's Matt Withrow didn't run--injured? How about Bobby Curtis (Villanova)? I think he ran once or twice early in the season but not since.
    He strained a groin in the middle of the fall. He jogged through a low-key 14:31 indoors but didn't feel well enough to run the Big 10. He's now slated to debut--at the earliest--at the Oregon meet on the April 21 weekend.
    Thanks for the extra info. They also knew that they likely did not need him for the Big 10 and he would not be in shape for NCAA Indoors. Last "spring" he ran three races: XC nats; WCXC (60th); and 13:35 for 5,000. So, he seems to be able to race well without racing a lot. I hope he gets over the groin problem.

    Individual winner predictions

    Does T&F News still pick Bierbaum to win the women's race? I'm going to go out on a limb and pick Mitchell from Butler.

    Funny (but true) quote from CU coach Mark Wetmore on the Buffs website:

    “On both sides, there are two teams that are a head above the rest of us. Duke and Stanford on the women’s side and Wisconsin and Arkansas on the men’s side. Behind those sets of two teams are another handful of teams that will be fighting closely for third, fourth and fifth. Of course in our business, a team can make a strategic mistake or a team meal mistake or a hotel mistake and a heavy favored team may not necessarily win.”

    Curtis is redshirting this year, I believe.

    I'm a Colorado fan but they're pretty much running for 3rd this year, I think, so I have to pull for Wisconsin over the Hogs. The Badgers deserve a team title and hopefully will have a solid run as a team, with guys keying off each other. A nice luxury to be able to rest guys at regionals and have some of the others run less than all-out.

    Wisconsin ran pretty easy. At Big Tens they ran 1,2,3,4, 6,7,8,9 and 24th. The runner in 24th, Bobby Lockhart, was their FIRST finisher at the Regional race, finishing 1:40 behind Bairu and 1:15 behind Solinsky. I don't think either one of them had to race hard to finish 8 seconds back of Lockhart. The Regional race was won by Olinger from Ohio State; he did not finish in the top 10 at Big Tens.

    No Rupp; he got injured several weeks ago and the Rupp "foot-trust" decided not to press things and take a chance that they would continued and become a bigger problem.

    There was a longish discussion on LetsRun about who was going to get in (before the announcement) and bit after it was announced.

    On the women's list of qualifying teams, it looks like Michigan was left off in error, as only 17 automatic teams are listed instead of 18, and Michigan of course won the Great Lakes regional. Wonder how long it will take them to correct the mistake ? Bet they are howling in Ann Arbor.
