I've got a sleeper for top four: Stanford. I don't see them beating Colorado, NAU or Oklahoma State, but I think they have a chance of taking down the Ducks and BYU.
Here's why: Jim Rosa, showing up big in second at Pac-12. Erik Olson, a hair behind Oregon's Mac Fleet at that conference meet (run at altitude), in eleventh place. Michael Atchoo, Stanford's school indoor mile record holder, in 12th. Tyler Stutzman, another sub-four miler, in 20th. Their fifth man (Garrett Sweatt), was back in 34th place, unfortunately, while Stanford's TOP runner in the previous meet, the freshman stud Sean McGorty, who was running with Fleet at 6,000-meters, tanked and DNF'ed. (Perhaps the altitude? I don't know...) But if he'd finished with Fleet and Olson and Atchoo, they would have picked up twenty-plus points and come close to nipping Oregon that day in Colorado.
So why do I think they could beat Oregon at nationals? This past Saturday at the Doc Adams Invitational at Davis, sophomore Tom Graham ran 24:08 to finish second, with Jim Rosa's twin Joe back from injury in third (24:13). So if They could plug this duo into the team of Sean McGorty, Eric Olson, Jim & Joe Rosa, Michael Atchoo and Tyler Stutzman: That is potentially a pretty damn good cross-country team.
Almost anything can happen on race day, but maybe Stanford is ready to reverse their dismal performances in recent years at the NCAA Championships? Just sayin'...
