UVA men just went 1,2,3 in the 5k after not coming anywhere close to qualifying for NCAA's in XC.[/quote]
Some of those guys probably peaking too early. doing workouts to get them to run fast now.[/quote]
I've got no dog in this fight. I'm just looking at the data. I was critical of Watson for blowing up his roster of older athletes when he was at UNC. It's no surprise that he couldn't be guaranteed a slot by the new Athletic Director at UNC. After all, UNC won the NCAA Title in Men's Soccer, lost in the NCAA 3rd round (Women's Soccer), lost in the NCAA Title game (Field Hockey), lost in the NCAA 2nd round (Volleyball), and lost in the Independence Bowl (Football). The new A.D. was probably like "All these other teams made the postseason. This guy has two teams that didn't make NCAA's. Why should he be the head coach?"
That being said, UVA men will make the NCAA Championship in XC next year. The roster has a ton of talent and has veteran runners. It's not surprising that guys that really weren't performing under Vig are now performing under Watson.
It is disconcerting that Andrews didn't run this indoor season, especially after a nice XC season. The anchor leg of that DMR on Friday night would have been a lot more interesting with a fit Andrews on the end for UVA.
