Please realize we totally understand why Mick Byrne (one of our favorite NCAA coaches) had his Badgers not run hard at Wisconsin. Under NCAA rules, you can't travel to a far away course to practice on it and they are hosting one of the biggest meets in the land in two weeks. But it's not right for the NCAA at-large process to be impacted the Badgers not giving an honest effort.
Yes, lots of time in our sport, runners don't go all out (most winners by definition aren't going all out). But this is far from Cheserek tempoing a 10k at Stanford to get a quallifier or guys on the same team holding hands as they cross a line 1-2. The team score mattered in Louisville and it's not right for the NCAA at-large process to be impacted by the Badger's effort (or lack thereof).
The NCAA Cross County Rules Committee should follow its own rules and DQ Wisco from the meet or keep them in and state any wins over them won't count for the at-large process.
