That's super helpful - thanks!
Now, another question: are there limitations to how many runners can compete unattached? I presume they're bound by some type of guideline, but what prevents a random mid-thirties guy deeply curious about collegiate XC from showing up and running "unattached" in meets?
I read something about invitationals and/or the host school needing to accept unattached requests, but not sure of the protocol.

I came here to make a La Bamba joke only to discover everyone did too.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Wow.||
Not sure why I received such a negative response to my post, especially since we were discussing this in a fairly academic way. (Not from you, but from the downvoters. :) )
Anyhoo, FORTUNATELY, I can't come up with any very specific examples regarding pro-fascist concepts, but another poster mentioned below someone with a penchant for defending Jerry Sandusky's behaviors could be considered as teetering on the line of rape apologist
One character that I find especially worthy of a critical eye is Milo Yiannopoulos. I would have to think of a very specific reason to warrant his version/perspective of the world being broadcast in a public setting.

I mean, I know what kind of dysfunctional rejects we are. Those guys must be like a roving band of Toxic Avengers.

It's a tricky subject. But to bring it up means we're willing to be transparent.
Safe spaces were created out of a cry for help, not as retaliation against a "system" or "the man" or any other heavily politicized group. If we start by understanding what caused the hurt in the first place, then we can focus on the important topic: does the hurt need to be addressed?
I want to believe - and hope - that our society is in a place where we can discuss that hurt in a civil way. I'm worried that we're not, as we tend to move toward solutions to the problem, which nobody agrees on....because they're politicized.
I agree with go16blue's comments above: no speaker should be barred from campus because of their views. However, I do think there needs to be a close examination of whether a speaker openly endorses viewpoints that require safe spaces in the first place (I'm thinking of rape apologists or even pro-fascists, both ideologies which have caused undue harm to a large swath of our population). Some perspectives, IMO, should be considered as unacceptable in the current discourse.

TBH, any one of us would have gotten posterized by Fournette.

My OP was pretty cheeky. Cryptic link, no reveal. It's been modified. :)
|5 weeks 3 days ago||yeah||
I learned the art of Instagrams Embedz and have updated the OP accordingly. Thanks for the gentle nudge. :)
Plus, does Yahoo even do sport anymore?

"Solo is a POS and the sorest of sore losers But she's not a dude so it'll blow over."
Giving women a fair shake in athletics seems to be something we're all historically shitty at as a society. I'd suppose that Solo's outbursts are given more scrutiny BECAUSE she's a woman, not despite it.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Pardon?||
Serena has had her fair share of outbursts on the court (all of which she's apologized for), but I'm curious to hear what puts her on Solo's level in your eyes.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||um||
Because our next coach hasn't won anything yet, right? Sigh.

I'd say she's the female Katie Ledecky.

Course yesterday was prime for a good time - it's a bit of a rolling course with some killer hills about 42-43 miles in. Same for the run in terms of having a few uphill screamers.
Andy's a great dude and amazing athlete - came back thru the chute to high-five everyone after the win.
It was my first 70.3 yesterday - didn't hit my sub-5 hour goal but had a blast out there. :)

The article you mention doesn't say anything about Klinsmann being out; it just says that oddsmakers have moved the needle on him.
Why would we fire a coach who basically achieved what we expected of him in a major tournament? The entitlement of idle USMNT fans - and non-soccer fans in general - is a bit petty. It's okay to accept that some countries are better than us at this game; if we want to get better, we need to invest in decades of development.

as someone who was pretty heavily involved in the inner workings of Detroit's "revitalization" for a few years, I tacitly agree with you. Much of what's happening is really just window dressing...
...for now. Give it a few cycles and a few years, and some of this stuff will stick.
