No, it's a perfect analogy. Steeplers are not the fastest "ground runners;" whatever the hell that means. They are the fastest steeplechasers just like the best hurdlers are not the fastest "ground runners" but rather the fastest hurdlers. If it were so easy to move up to the steeple and win far more guys would do it. It's not like they don't want to be NCAA champions. You apparently have no idea how many would be steeplechasers careers last for about a week before they realize that they are no more more suited for the steeple than Usain Bolt is for the 800.
Poor analogy---but Derrick could totally win the steeple on the basis of being the faster ground runner. Most Steepelrs have made their career out of this
