Actually, to un-distort reality for a second- when most people where saying "no heart" about Rupp, it was prior to him having any titles. So, losing to the Joe Schmoeketer Kenyan from Eastern Kentucky in the NCAA outdoor 10K isn't the same as losing to a guy who currently HAS A FASTER INDOOR 5K PR THAN RUPP...CURRENTLY...RIGHT NOW...FATSRE THAN RUPP...LOOK, HE HAS A FASTER PR THAN RUPP INDOORS AT THIS MOMENT...THE GUY'S BEEN RUNNING FOR 2 YEARS...
Basically, Lalang is more of a freak of nature than anyone that Rupp was unable to defeat in his first 4 years of college. Those guys that beat Rupp/the guys Rupp finally beat in his final year of college weren't even on the level of Sambu or the Iona guy. Derrick beat those two handily this weekend.
Derrick does have some eligibility left, so it'll be interesting to see how next year pans out.
