Rye And Fent In
Question for those of you who are big Solinsky fans and can't stand Rupp: Does this come down to physical appearance, personal style and dislike of AlSal or is there something more here I should be aware of?
Because when I look at Rupp and Solinsky, I see two athletes of the same generation with similar PRs and similar basic stories: HS distance running star in state that takes distance running seriously; go to college at big-time in-state distance-running power where each continues to run well; run professionally for Nike while living in Oregon and training under college coach.
I have never really understood this either. My best guess is that it is largely Wisconsin posters on here who are just very vocal about their dislike of Rupp. NOP is not dirty, Salazar is just an excellent coach, who micromanages Rupp. I don't know why people have a problem with this; he is a professional runner, and that is his job. Solinsky is great, but I have never understood what is SO unlikable about Rupp. Stop being jealous.
