      My blog's NCAA Preview imagined Ches & Jenkins jogging across the line together...singing "We Are the Champions"!

      LOL

          I could be very wrong, but Eric Jenkins doesn't look great.

              He looked good, but he sure as hell didn't look happy afterwards - dismissed Cheserek's attempts at a handshake, exited track within 10 seconds of finishing. Seems like an awkward post-race meeting for the team from "heaven".

                I was right.
                Except maybe the song wasn't "We Are the Champions".
                It might have been the Dixie Chicks....
                "NOT Ready to Run".

                Or maybe it was that old classic....
                "SLOW Boat to China".

                Nope!
                It was.....

                "LAZY Man's Blues"!!

                    As for Hehir, he dropped from the chase pack with more than three laps to go.

                      Brilliant job by the Ducks controlling the pace in what amounted to a tempo run. A lot of energy was conserved for Friday's 5000 final. I was a bit surprised that Ches and Jenkins didn't cross the finish line together, but there's little doubt that Ches would have outkicked Jenkins had they been on opposing teams and I've long felt that Ches handed the 3000 title to Jenkins at NCAA Indoors this year. Perhaps he'll do the same in the 5000 on Friday. FWIW, the two are joined at the hip and pretty much train exclusively together, so I question the earlier comment about animosity between the two. Then again, I did not see any exchanges between the two as they marched towards the media tent.

                        Even guys who are close (sometimes especially guys who are close) can get on each other's nerves. I think Jenkins was annoyed by two things: (1) he was momentarily hindered by a lapped runner as Cheserek moved into the lead, and (2) he did all the work in pulling away from the rest of the field so there would be no risk in the final straight from a lesser runner allowed to hang around.

                        Do not believe Cheserek let Jenkins win indoors. Jenkins had to run a 25 second final 200m to edge him (and Cheserek was into his "arm flail" before realizing he was beaten). Jenkins was able to do it because Cheserek had run three races in the previous 24 hours while Jenkins had only run one.

                        They are as competitive as they should be and adds an element of interest to the 5000.

                          It was immediately after the finish. Jenkins was clearly annoyed by something, and it appeared to be Cheserek. Replay should be available on Espn.com, and it was immediately noted by many on the letsrun discussion thread.

                          Edit: check out the front page of LRC and the Jenkins interview for more context.

                            Kevin M: Your comments after the race were also noted by several on an Oregon track board which I had not looked at until this morning. I also watched the LRC individual interview with Jenkins and he seemed calmed down as the reporters tried to goad him into saying something controversial, so perhaps this was just one of those "heat of the moment" things.

                            Player: While I realize that Ches had done yeoman duty prior to the 3000 final in Fayetteville, I still think he stepped aside and had Jenkins been an Arkansas or Florida athlete, he would have dug a bit deeper and found a way to win. As it was, I think he was relieved to know the team was going to get their 18 points and backed off a bit. I guess we'll never know for sure, but your argument is certainly legitimate.

                              I didn't see any control of the pace. Cheserek moved up to 4th and Jenkins was considerably farther back. The guy from Texas picked it up after halfway and pulled the others along. How did the Ducks have any control?

                              I was also somewhat concerned about Jenkins at around 8K; he seemed to be feeling the heat, but with 1200 to go he slammed the door on everyone except Cheserek.

                              Hey, we missed Larry Rawson telling us they ran the last mile in about 4:16! They split about 14:49 and 14:10.
                              Cheers,
