Knight is now 7th all time on NCAA 1500m list. How high on the list do you expect him to be? He is a 5000m/10000m guy.
Olympic/WC 1500m medalists like Centro, Manzano, Lagat... did not run as fast as Knight during their NCAA career.
Other distance NCAA all time greats such as Ches, Lalang... also never ran that fast while in College.
lol. Here come the Knight apologists. Clearly, by the way you people put Knight on a throne and threw all kinds of hyperbole around when talking about him, he should be 1st on the NCAA 1500 list by a wide margin.
Knight is a 1500/5000 guy. He's run many more 1500's than 10000s. The other guys just didn't have a monster like Kerr to pull them to a 3:36
You're seeing only what you want to see. First you don't go and run 10ks every week like you could for the 1500. Also how many 1500s has Knight even tried to qualify for? He's always been a 5k 10k guy. You guys are looking for reasons to bash him. He had a good race he ran a 3 second pb and got beat by a 3 time ncaa champion at the same time.
Knight Placed 9th at the world championshios in the 5k not the 1500. That should tell you his focus right there.
