Lalang is showing he's human. That's a mighty fast time for a conference final, with Derrick having run a 1500 earlier. Very impressive.
If you were inferring that the 14:00 5k is an indication that he's in poor form, you obviously weren't following the meet.

I think Dunbar is with Oregon so that he can improve his chances of running up to his potential. He has two more years of Outdoor eligibility after completing this season, and I'd say if he continues on his current path, he will be an outstanding distance runner by time he finished his Oregon program. Hs first year at Oregon has certainly been a successful one, so let's acknowledge that he made a good decision to move over to run as an Oregon Duck.
Dunbar also ran the 1500. He will be a factor at nationals at 5000m.

Correction: 2.5 million students transfer per year
According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), in 2005 nearly 60% of college graduates in the United States who completed undergraduate degrees had attended two or more institutions prior to graduation. Roughly 2.5 million students transfer every year. Student mobility spans institutional structures, differing policies and practices often extending college degree completion by an average of one semester according to the GAO in a report to Congress in October 2005.
