just look at those splits. solinksy went 15.17/16.05. looks like they were flat out, out coached. i never understand why every team goes out so fast? don't give me the 'get could position' argument. its a wide open 10k, not an indoor 800m. colorado outperforms just about every year and its because they are well coached and run smart.
I have a very strong feeling that you've not run at the NCAA national meet. Not so easy to weave your way around 170+ guys.
