Rapid Fire Observations

We’ll go more in-depth on these individual projections in tomorrow’s Wood Report column but here’s a couple quick hitters to keep you entertained until then:

  • Justyn Knight stays at the top after his win at the Wisconsin Invite but Grant Fisher isn’t too far behind him. It looks like it could be a nice rematch of the showdown in Madison.
  • We excluded BYU from the initial pre-season rankings due to personal reasons and ties but Rory Linkletter, the NCAA runner-up in the 10,000 meters outdoors and the Blue Jeans Mile world record holder, enters the projections at No. 3.
  • After much hype about the Alabama Crimson Tri, I’ve got Gilbert Kigen cracking the list at No. 4. His teammates Vincent Kiprop is back at No. 7 and Alfred Chelanga is back at No. 13.
  • On the same note, here’s how Alabama would be scored: Kigen 4; Kiprop 7; Chelanga 13th; Short 232nd and Bull 245th.
  • Yesterday, my rankings showed NAU over BYU by just two points. Here’s how that breaks down: NAU – Baxter 5th; Day 12th; Trouard 18th; Grijalva 33rd and Beamish 53rd. BYU would score: Linkletter 3rd; McMillan 17th; Clinger 22nd; Young 31st and Carney 49th. The difference here looks to be Tyler Day squeaking in between Baxter and Trouard.
  • I’m sorry, Christian Alberico of Iona. Someone has to be last.
