I am a big fan of Wetmore, both as a person and as a coach.
But some of the writing about him borders on hagiography. He himself would point out, as the article does, that he makes mistakes, so it's worthwhile pointing some of those out. Most recently, the CU team did terribly outdoors this year.
Of the top-7 from XC, not a single guy made an NCAA outdoor final this spring. Bosshard (who turns 25 this month) didn't have XC, but did place 7th in the 10,000.
As an outside observer, I can't figure out whether the problem was over-training or poor peaking. I'd say it was likely more the latter, since many of the guys ran well at Payton Jordan, but in Saarel's case, it seems like he was tired after mid-April (there was [justified] speculation that he might be able to attach the 5000 AJR at Payton, but he looked flat/heavy). Heck, the kid is a freshman, so an 8th place at XC and 3rd in the indoor 3000 still adds up to a great year, but it seemed like they were trying to set him up for World Juniors, but he was obviously toast by NCAAs).
One take on all this is that Wetmore gets a lot out of guys in XC who aren't all that good. Another might be that they train so hard for XC that they're spent by track. I would guess that his training is more suited to 10K XC than 1500/5000 on the track (I know, Simpson and Coburn seem to refute this idea, but it still seems like he isn't quite as good as coaching a 15/5 male as he should be).
Or, it could have just been one of those times when Wetmore changed things up, and really worked everyone hard with big outdoor goals in mind, and it was too much, and this year he'll make the adjustment. As I mentioned before, he'd probably be the first to take the blame if he messed up.
Not bashing Wetmore or the CU guys at all. Just pointing out that the XC brilliance from the fall didn't transfer onto the oval in the spring of 2014.
