Nice try w/your “plea to emotion,” but can’t you BYU guys just admit to Lickety that a 26 year-old competing against an 18 year-old is ridiculous! All Lickety is doing in this thread is establishing a different weight class for Americans that grow-up in our rational system. A “pat on the back”!
BYU: Lickety demands a NCAA investigation …. separate rosters, scholarships given, scholarships taken away, 2 x Year Missions w/a Red-shirt, Mormon-only rosters, etc. ’
Why age matters? Look at the competition …. it forces hard-hard-charging 18-22 year-old Americans to do too much w/their bodies to win & stay competitive. LetRun posters can recall thousands of talented Americans that tried to make it happen against older ANZACers & the Rift Valley Express in the NCAAs to only run themselves into the ground. The one’s that survived now get a shot at WCAPers (fake soldiers) of extreme genetic & post-collegiate financial advantage.
- No foreigner should ever be considered as an All-American & points should be reduced from them during team competition for those that score. This is the NCAAs not the World University Games.
