While I can see where your assumptions come from, they are pretty general and mostly off-base. Portland has been way better at developing people than Oregon over the years, people are just mislead by the top-end talent, for which Vin is a master facilitator. Yes, Dunbar can run 3:57 at UO, and probably wouldn't have put his focus there at UP, but look at the 5k "development" since Vin has been at Oregon! UP gives Dunbar just as good an opportunity-if not better-to maximize his 5k potential. UP is about to have 4 first or second year guys challenging the 14-minute mark this spring, and most were barely recruited.
