Rojo and Jon have returned from the 2019 NCAA Cross Country Championships in Terre Haute, Indiana and they break down the action on and off the course. BYU pulled the big “upset” on the men’s side and the Arkansas women completed their triple crown.
Then they discuss the NCAA cross country teams and performances of the decade.
Our weekly Alberto Salazar segment features Jordan Hasay, we discuss if Eliud Kipchoge should have won World Athlete of the Year, and why was Brigid Kosgei snubbed. Plus message board threads of week, the cheating New England Patriots and Jon’s fan at NCAAs.
