RE: Pat Casey Leaving Montana State for Oklahoma!
As a Mainer thie points from the brojos annoyed me a bit. This is the very same website that claims US born runners don't have what it takes, yet in the same breath claims trying to be your best is "100% self centered"? Might I also point out that the homepage quote is about Kara Goucher leaving her training program to train with better athletes better coaching etc. and praises her line of thinking...
Give me a break! I don't know much about Casey but in Masters' case he shattered school records ages ago and whilst he owes his coach a big thank you his development will be limited in Orono and heaven forbid he want to go somewhere that would provide training partners that might help him find a podium spot at NCAAs.
We may have a few decent Runners from Maine but most schools out of New England don't recruit based on potential (save for William and Mary and sometimes Stanford based on the success of Lane and Luchini).
Whether they have to sit out a year is somewhat of a non issue (they both might benefit) but to infer or imply that they are being selfish or self centered in wanting to be the best they can be is utterly ridiculous.
I wish both athletes the best of luck in taking their careers to the next level!
