|Sub 12:50 anyone?|
This points to a major breakthrough. When fresh, I think sub 12:55 is a given in Europe this summer for AJ, maybe even sub 12:52.
|Heard through the grapevine|
Derrick is definitely a stud, especially when you factor in that he's a sophomore. How many titles is this guy going to rack up?
This is a great day by his standards. His career at Oregon has mostly been a disappointment up to now.
By the way, the two guys who finished in front of him were both doubling back from the 10,000. They were using this as a cool down.

This is seriously impressive. By far his best weekend to date. 5000m PR after a 3:46, 8:52, 3:41? Top notch. I guess the real question is which double does he do at NCAAs now? He can obviously handle the high workload.
Only could be a considered a disappointment in XC. On the track AJ has been a good, consistent performer. Whether he takes the next big step and runs either 13:3x or sub 3:39 remains to be seen. He's beaten a ton of guys who have done stuff like that in conference races and even at NCAA's, but just hasn't done it in a fast race.
Way to go, AJ! You can score points in a Pac-10 meet. Lets see how this transitions to the NCAA Championships...if he even makes the finals of anything there. Lame.
tons of cats do the 10K sit and kick / 5K double at conference. almost nobody does the 1500(with a heat and final)/steeple/5K triple (which is a quadruple) period. those who may try it would not likely get top 4 in all events, especially in the pac-10 conference. not only that, but aj was mowing it down in the end on both finals today.
Does anyone know what the Cal runners were going for in that race? Sodaro and Jarvis were doing some kind of pacemaking but I didn't really get why if their guys weren't going to line up behind them. Seemed like Sodaro was thinking the same thing as he almost totally turned around during the race to see where everyone else was. Strange race.
The Pac 10 is the best distance conference in the nation by FAR
