Metcalf actually has a good training program for both the men and women. The problem is that the men don't do what is written. The men grind each other into the ground and Metcalf doesn't stop them. There have been workouts that were supposed to be tempo runs at 5:10 pace and the guys come through in 4:55 and Metcalf encourages them to compete with each other. I won't name any names, but there is quite a few of the upperclassmen who try to make every single run sub 6 pace. The women run their prescribed paces and work as a pack in workouts to keep things under control and that is why they aren't burned out. If you look at the talent that UW gets every year on the men's side, there is no reason they should suck like they do.
That being said, Metcalf has the talented guys and the program on paper to have a top level team just like the women, but until he gets the guys in check and gets them to save it for race day, they will continue to run below their potential.
