I am no fan of Wetmore personally. Don't like him based on my experiences years ago.
That being said, I don't know any other top programs at the time of these events- late 90s through about 2020) that were not aware of, and dealing with athlete body composition, and the science involved. The guy had a mission to win NCAA XC titles. Was he supposed to ignore the science that every other top program was subscribing to? I have not seen any direct evidence that the man and his staff were mandating these tests and mandating athlete calories.
