Subject: RE: Solinsky "getting back at Rupp"
100% agreed with Wejo. The cat-and-mouse gamesmanship around entries makes the sport look like a joke to anyone outside it (and many regular followers, too).
Regarding the rivalry, quote, etc, it seemed pretty clear to me that Rupp teed up for an uncontested run at the AR, which for the sake of discussion he had maybe a 90% chance at if he's fit. Solinsky, also fit by all accounts, stepped up to race and, yes, protect his record. Everything sounds good, right? A lot like, um, sports? But Rupp, seeing his chance at the AR go from a clear shot paced by world elites to a battle with Solinksy (a battle he's lost before), bailed. I'm sorry, but the allergies story doesn't add up to a whole explanation.
HOW COULD SOLINSKY NOT BE PISSED? He stepped to the challenge, planning to run a RACE he hadn't otherwise intended, a race which would have been good for US running and likely the AR, and Rupp pulled out SOMEWHERE BETWEEN CHECK IN AND THE STARTING LINE? WTF?
