well that sucks. top 10 mid-d runner for the past 6 years or so goes down week of the champs. purvis, youngblood, hasay, theison will have good days. im thinking at least 4 individual titles not including the relay.
Oregon fans are delusional. Just because they are the best on thing in Eugene doesn't mean they will win a national title. Oregon will def see one in the Hep. Mile is likely because most of the girls that can beat Hasay have focused on the 3k, so the race is now Jordan's to lose (Van Dalen and Reid made her first NCAA title much easier). But Youngblood is quite doubtful and Purvis is a pipe dream. She will be lucky to scrape up a few points.
Going around saying people not even close to favorites are going to take home the title it makes it seem like they are failures if they only get 3rd or something, when they are ranked like 8th.
