Nationals

It probably won't draw anywhere near the same fervor as the Women's Soccer NCAA playoff game at 9 AM Friday in the Buckley Center, but the Pilots Athletic Department is also planning on streaming the NCAA Menís Cross Country Championships in the Hall of Fame Room, located in the Chiles Center, on Saturday at 9:00 AM.

A terrific showing by the Pilots....and UP has many of the top runners back for next season.

Individual first place goes to Eddie Cheserek......can't blame him for picking UO over UP I guess, but just think of what could have been.

Once again it's noteworthy that three of the top four teams are from "altitude" schools.....we should be thankful UP's top runner, Scott Fauble, decided to leave Golden, Colorado for Portland.

Oregon. Always stealing our talent away. Glad some of these young men know what's best for them!

Great little town. Home of my drinking game beer of choice, Coors Light. Although now it's Bent Gate Mountaineering that takes my entertainment cash.

I'm not sure that actually qualifies as beer.

Maksim Korolev. Heard a rumor on LRC he's considering UP for his last year of eligibility. That would be a huge get.

His Harvard bio doesn't seem to give him another year.

Here's an interesting quirk for you: Ivy League schools don't allow student-athletes to redshirt. You have four years for four years of eligibility, and that's it. Here's a very similar situation from 2010:

http://www.thedp.com/article/2010/11/runner_struggles_with_ivy_redshirt_rules

Korolev was injured during the 2011 season, and ran in maybe two races before shutting down. He could easily get a medical redshirt for that year. But per league rules, Harvard cannot have him compete next year.

So, he will be forced to transfer, but he can use the "grad school rule" to become immediately eligible.
