The masses once heralded your name as the chosen one, Jerry. The BTC logo but fear into the hearts of competitors, and doubts in the minds of anyone else hoping to make a US team. You took the job at Oregon, on the heels of some of the most historic Duck distance performances in the history of the program, and that is saying quite a lot. You sent the architect of that success, Ben Thomas, back to Blacksburg to have complete distance control.
There you sat. On the throne at the top of the mountain... and now look at you.
Your pros (men and women) are jumping ship left and right, some as if they can't leave fast enough. The Men of Oregon raced, what, twice this season before staggering to a 7th place finish at regionals. Your one shining glimmer of joy is that the Women are through to NCAAs. You've had a rough few weeks, buddy. It seems like you may have flown too close to the sun, and now it's all crashing down.
