Some quick thoughts on the men's race at NCAAs. Cheserek got the huge upset win, Maksim Korolev (who got lapped 3 times in the NCAA 10,000m) was third and your first American, four Americans in the top 10, including true frosh Ben Saarel, plus Kemoy Campbell's dream season comes to a halt and NAU and Colorado's 5th men.
We tell you how history repeated itself, talk about the teams produced the biggest flops and biggest surprises, and tell who about the coach who was totally wronged by the NCAA for two straight years but got back in the ultimate way.
