My point is that JG shouldn't find this to be so crazy. It definitely doesn't warrant all caps. He mentioned it in his write-up and in this thread.
Wetmore doesn't go on the podium. That's it. Nothing crazy about it, it's just the way he rolls.
I know that's the way he rolls. But I figured he might want to at least WATCH them get the trophy -- his first women's team title since 2004. Guess not.
This interview is not so very different from others he has given at nationals in the past. I think--but I'm far from knowing--that at competitions (especially cross) he is really intense, and cannot be around anyone other than his athletes. However, when he is interviewed on campus--that are several that Flotrack has done--he is much more relaxed and forthcoming. Nevertheless, I think he's probably a fairly reticent and private guy overall.
What I'd be interesting in learning is how his training methods differ from, say, fifteen years ago. The long run is, of course, unchanged, but I remember hearing him say that his runners do more intensity now than years ago. This would be worth asking about, as well as questions about peaks, tapering, gym work, the role of the captains, and Heather Burroughs' role in coaching the team.
