As a reminder, the NCAA has previous stated this was not their problem. I mean... if UCONN players fail classes it is a problem. If UNC players pass fake classes, then that's cool. If PSU has no NCAA violations, then... don't get me started.

I know it's not strictly running, but that's what makes this even more amazing. I cannot imagine trying to find the perfect balance between strength, speed, and agility and becoming talented enough to dominate in so many areas. Sprinters may get the headlines, but guys like this should get more respect.
