If he ends up being the coach, I just hope people in 3 years aren't asking why the UF xc team isn't top 10 in the country. Having talked to someone who has coached there in the past, I know they get very little scholarships for distance. Unless the recruit is basically a guaranteed scorer at NCAAs, almost zero.
And Florida despite its size isn't a good state for in-state distance recruits like Texas.
A nice result would be try to finish top 2 in xc in the weak region in xc and make it to NCAAs, try to develop a stud or two on the team that can contribute at the NCAA level, and not be a total embarrassment at SECs in the 1500-10k (zero points this year).
Remember, Florida is a team built on TOTAL studs. They finished higher at NCAAs (1st) than they did as SECs (4th) and amazingly almost scored as many points at NCAAs as SECs (81.5 at SECs, 61.5 at SECs). That's why on the coaches thread, I suggested going foreign for a Kenyan stud or two . If you are handing out a full ride, you can't afford to miss.
