Of course that's not what I'm saying. Runners go to Oregon because they see guys like Jenkins, Fleet, Greer, Geoghegan, Dunbar, Gregorek run fast and get pro contracts. Most professional runners are paid for what they can do on the track, not in cross country.

I don't like the rent-a-senior phenomenon.

I would normally agree, especially when it's ridiculous like New Mexico women last year.

But, I do like the fact that college athletes with eligibility control their own destiny. They don't have to ask for a waiver from their AD. They just go where they want.

I like that. I'm for the student athlete.
