Hey have developed a myriad of athletes over the years. New Mexico never has any relivent sprinters or throwers, so their track team is never amazing. But they always qualify and score a handful of points from 1500-10k.

New Mexico has gotten a reputation for geting top transfers and grads from other Universities with one year remaining. Is it known for developing talent over 4 or 5 years?
I wonder if some of these high school girls are just looking at the top teams from recent years and chasing after a XC podium place.
Is New Mexico known as a top track team? Why would she go there with her track results from last season?
Keeping them possible?

Did you see that the University of New Mexico got foot locker champion Weini Kelati? Big props to the Lobos for getting a top rated recruit and keeping the top finishing team possible.
I don't spend a lot time on this forum, so it's possible the answer to my question is widely known to everyone but me. Nevertheless, I have to ask why there is such hatred for Oregon on this board. I'm in my early 50s, and when I was in high school it was always my dream to run for Oregon, recognizing that it had (and still does) one of the best and most historic distance programs in the nation.

I think it's a little bit of both. I was neutral until they were able to get Rupp reinstated by the NCAA after he had gone pro. I just don't like it when people/organizations are able to operate above the law.

Yeah I mean Oregon has worked out so well for Baxter...

Damn I can't believe she picked New Mexico over Oregon. At Oregon she probably wouldn't even win a Cross National Championship in College. At New Mexico she might win one maybe 2 Cross Championships. At Oregon she would have won 4-6 NCAA team Championships in indoor and outdoors at New Mexico she won't win any. Who picks New Mexico over Oregon damn that hurt like Allie O picking Boise State over Oregon :(
