|Subject: ||RE: pre nats predictions|
And Oregon isn't sending it men's or women's teams. So this year Pre-Nats won't help sort out the very top men's or women's teams.
For the men, we won't see any head-to-head competition between the top-4 teams until the Big-12 meet (#2 Oklahoma vs. #3 Colorado). #1 Oregon will go against #4 Portland at the West Regional meet. (At the Oct 4 Dellinger meet, Oregon, with their two best runners out, narrowly beat Portland 49-56.) That's it.
For the top-4 women's teams, #1 Washington & #2 Oregon will go head-to-head twice before Nats (at PAC-10 & West Regional meets). #1 Washington races #4 Minnesota at Pre-Nats. That's it.
The top head-to-head competitions at Pre-Nats will be:
MEN BLUE RACE (#2 Oklahoma St vs. #6 Alabama)
MEN WHITE RACE (#3 Colorado vs. #7 Iona College
WOMEN BLUE RACE (#1 Washington vs. #4 Minnesota)
WOMEN WHITE RACE (#3 Florida St. vs. #5 Princeton)
These top ranked teams should all have easy wins in their Pre-Nats races (except for Oklahoma if they don't send their best runners). A win by Iona, Minnesota or Princeton would be considered an upset.
