Check the results of XC. They are almost the same every year. Adams, Grand Valley, Mines, Western, Chico, Mt. Olive, Queens, Southern Indiana, etc... Adams generally gets some better talent because of who they are, but Baltes over at Grand Valley has a recruiting 3200 ave of 9:30 on any given year and every single year they have some new low 14s guys. But there's a reason that these programs (and there are some others that make appearances near the top like Pomono and Anchorage and Western Washington and now Western Oregon and CSU-Pueblo have really been getting more competitive the last 5 years) are constantly near the top year after year: because they get new guys every year and keep the ball rolling with making different guys good.
