I watched Jerry's press conference. What strikes you immediately is that his demeanor is the direct opposite of Robert Johnson's, namely, positive and friendly, and to replace Johnson's 14 NCAA team titles, he has the assistance of some great assistant coaches like Brian Blutreich, whose throwers won 15 NCAA individual titles at ASU alone, Shalane, and their sprint coach. Where Johnson alienates, despite his tremendous success, Jerry builds relationships and his athletes have had nothing but good to say about him, except with the continued presence of Houlihan around BTC. The same is the case for Shalane. Jerry will reverse the athlete flight once they settle the scholarships issue, and maybe he can even build a McDonnell like program (in strength, not duration) with the combination of resources to all elements of xc and track and field, NIL monies coming in to supplement scholarships, and possible roster limit increases they were talking about at the presser.
