Yes, the west is having a pretty bad year. Take a look at the top ten finishers from the regional last year. Eight seniors of that caliber are hard to replace.
1 Kevin Chaves SR Occidental 24:34.85 1
2 Julian Boggs SR Colorado College 24:46.25 2
3 Alex Nichols SR Colorado College 24:54.75 3
4 Alex Ramon SR Occidental 24:59.35 4
5 Ian Batch SR Willamette 25:04.65 5
6 Kiran Moorty SR Colorado College 25:19.30 6
7 Lucas May JR Willamette 25:28.10 7
8 Lucas Nebert SR Willamette 25:28.95 8
9 Francis Reynolds SO Puget Sound 25:29.85 9
10 Shawn Pollard SR Linfield 25:30.00 10
Wow a 9:07 in highscool. That means he should be able to tempo his races in 25:55. Maybe he's been doing marathon paced running during his races? If he still isn't running any races hard when is he finally going to do it? Anyone in the know?
I hear he has a closet full of them...

something else must be wrong with Oshkosh. In the last poll they dropped from 8th to 20th, and I doubt that would happen based on one runner's performance. Any word on how the rest of their team is looking?
Anyone know anything about Augustana? They showed a slight but noticeable drop in the polls after a consistent first half of the season. Are they engaging in the standard Augustana meltdown, or was their drop a fluke?
Obviously polls are just best guesses, but like stereotypes they are at least loosely based on reality.

Of course he Kosgei can be a DI AA. History shows many could be and have been. Dan Henderson (Wheaton, IL) was 10th in the DI race in '78 or '79. Arnie Schrader (Stevens Point) was also top 10 in DI race when they used to take top 4 from DIII and let them run the DI race. There were many AA's from DIII over the years in the DI race.
I disagree. Historically, Henderson's 10th place finish and Schrader's 11th, added with David Moller's 19th in 1974 are far and away the most solid performances. Without those, the average finish is 63rd, and even with them only 51st. The women are a little better at a 42 average.
It's very hard to tell if they're actually AA's or not, since the criteria has changed and unlike D3, non-citizens are removed.
