Who cares about Cal? Very little effort put into the team there, it's the "one plan fits all" mentality. Nice academic school though!

Pasture? Yeah-SEC Division One is the pasture. It's no D-III Chico, but he'll probably do just fine.

Well Looking at Missouri Stats Last Year they had 5 Guys last Year under 3:49 in the 1500m That is Not Bad for being in the Pasture! Also I'm pretty sure He picked a School that fit Him and his Hobbies, He's a Country Boy who also likes to go Hunting that is why the schools he visted like Iowa State, Washington state and Alabama were all schools with country settings that he stated in the Article! Well Best of Luck Cody and I here You are looking very good right now!

It's hilarious to me that ignorant people consider a school like Miss as 'out to pasture'. Wonder if CAL knew he was alive? Cal, (much like Oregon), with a few exceptions, has become a black hole for middle distance talent. Some top names are recruited and then disappear, get injured, or transfer. Regardless, they're never heard from or seen again. It's like middle-distance witness protection.

Outside of California, schools actually have money for improvements and infrastructure, classes smaller than 100-400 students (that are taught by professors, not assistants), and admissions systems based on merit as a human being, rather than a freakish GPA, perfect SAT scores, and ethnicity.

Looking at the NCAA website, seems that Ole Miss ranked 38th nationally last year at the close of the outdoor season. Cal finished 66th. Take a look at the rankings, and note how many California schools are in the top 10. Whoops, none. All-time outdoor 800m at Cal is 1:45.40, Ole Miss-1:44.07.

I mean, obviously Cal has it's high points in NCAA athletics-I mean, who isn't excited to see what the 73rd place Bears are going to do next year with a new coach and a 3-9 record? Maybe some pasture time would have helped Tedford...

Spend some time in the South (or at least looking at stats) before you turn up your nose and dismiss their programs as 'the pasture'.
