At last some oxygen for the life support of intelligence on this thread.
Perhaps the greatest prep duel in history and these nincompoops act like it's just another Joe Blow v. Joe Schmoe state meet 9:25 where they will never run faster again.
The only race that even comes close in my recollection (many decades) is NTN Efraimson/Cranny/Baxter.

The fact the Drew Hunter as a junior won in 8:42 and beat a 3:59 miler and two time Footlocker champ is historic. But when you factor in the last 400 of 55 its all -time legendary status. That's never been seen in this country.
No high schooler has ever closed a two mile in that time as Hunter.
