  • Oregon Favored for both Men and Women NCAA/XC

    Here are the rankings. Especially on the women's side the Pac 10 is heavy at the top but missing the rest of the league. A lot of East-coast schools that have reputations to repair as the East Coast schools filled almost the entire bottom third of the NCAA meet unless you touched the Gulf as well as the Atlantic. [As a side note, Wisconsin's men's team is only ranked slightly higher than their football team (6 vs 8) despite the fact that in football they get nowhere near the recruiting classes of the SEC/Pac10 and they have holes as a result.]

      ...and behind the CSU women. I think that the thinking is that Jenny B will not be running this fall. However, if the posters have her included into the mix then 23rd implies a very weak supporting cast. Is Liz P still competing?

        Ops, I had forgotten they fell to 23rd at last year's NCAA meet.

          And did virtually nothing of note on the track indoors or out last year.

          5 points TOTAL as a team at the Big XII indoor meet (all thanks to Sara Vaughn's 4th in the mile). Can you imagine a CU team not scoring a point in the 3k or 5k? Bizarre times in the Big XII.

          Didn't get much better for the Buffs outdoors, with 13 total points (8 in the steeple from Barringer, nothing in any other events 800-10,000).

          That said, it could have just been a particularly nasty injury season for CU, and they do return 1-2, 4-6 from the team that ran at NCAAs, including the 2nd and 31st finishers.
