RE: Pat Casey Leaving Montana State for Oklahoma!
Athletes should be able to run for whatever program they want. If you do really well in school and get into Princeton, go there. Don't just go t XXX-State because Princeton already has a bunch of good students. You get a better education at a better academic institution. No one complains about ivy league schools hogging all the brains. If you want to be a better runner, go to a better running program. Deciding on a college is one of the biggest decisions you make in your life (whether you are a runner or not). To make that decision at 17 or 18 is pretty tough. If after a year or 2 you think you have made the wrong choice, why not remedy that mistake.
As for sitting out... if the school is no longer paying you to run for them, they shouldn't have any control over what you can/cannot do. It doesn’t work like that with a real job. Once the paychecks stop coming in, you can go get another job without a waiting period. If they want athletes to sit out, then they should have to pay the transfers tuition at the new school.
