      Tafnut: You don't really believe that those are my "A" picks? Im smarter than that. My picks will come on Wednesday or Thursday when I get the weather report from Pullman and the injury report from each Pac-10 coach.

            I'm waiting until Friday's New York Times to get my picks and then I'll tune into "Cross Country Live" on ESPN to get filled in on the latest from Rawson, Cyril and the rest of the gang.

                You've clearly never heard the old adage over there in the Palouse: "If you don't like the weather, wait half an hour."

                Almost as famous as "All roads lead out of Pullman."

                      Everyone seems to have the same top 4 for the men's teams, so I'll predict something different just to shake things up:
                      Men
                      Individual winner: Robison (first race of season, hopefully he'll run!)
                      1. Kenya aka Stanford
                      2. Arizona State (I tip my hat to those who can train in Phoenix)
                      3. Oregon (a bit disappointing so far this year)
                      4. Arizona (Cheseret returns to his bro's former stomping grounds)
                      5. Wazzu
                      6. U-Dub
                      7. You See El Lay
                      8. Cal (they probably won't be last, but I'm tired of being disappointed by the Bears)

                      Women (after the top 3 I'm lost)
                      Individual: Craig
                      1. Japan aka Stanford
                      2. Arizona State
                      3. UCLA
                      4. Washington
                      5. Washington State
                      6. Arizona
                      7. Oregon
                      8. Cal
                      9. USC

                        If you're giving it away to entrees, a free dinner would be more appropriate.

                          No idea who will take individual honors. That requires actual thought.

                            In the 12 years I've been in AZ, the only time I didn't run in the morning when I planned to was the day this past summer when the low temperature was 96. Other days are bearable if you run early. I found it much more difficult to run in the winter in colder climates, not so much for the cold, but for the footing.
