RE: Villanova - 3 individual qualifiers but no team at NCAAs

It's funny, if Georgetown didn't qualify as a team they would also send 3 individuals and if Penn didn't qualify they would send almost 3 individuals (Shearn would've been 5th individual behind Quinn from Penn st.)

Is it really that shocking? There are like a couple of schools with distance tradition (georgetown, villanova, and to some extent penn state) and a couple of ivys (penn, princeton) who will get good runners. And navy is sort of its own category with free tuition but a different set of requirements The rest of the schools are pretty much in the get a good runner every now and then camp (UMBC) but rarely are competive. Heck I would bet half of them don't even give out scholarships to distance guys. Getting 3 people is a bit rare but 2 happens pretty much every year as the 3rd place team normally has 2-3 big studs and the team battle between them finishing 2nd or 3rd comes down to the 4th and 5th man
