What's to stop a college team from recruiting a team of 13:20-13:50 guys from Kenya?
Seems like a simple strategy to crush everyone else at XC. Are there any rules against such an approach? Is it cost prohibitive? Are there too few scholarships to allow it to work? Is XC just too irrelevant in collegiate sports to make it worthwhile? It looks like Alabama was trying something like that. My thought is that most schools would not go this approach simply because it would take the joy and challenge of coaching and developing kids to the get to next level out of the equation, but that may be a bit naive. I certainly don't think guys like Mark Wetmore or Chris Fox would want to just inherit a bunch of 13:30 Kenyans.
