Thank you for pointing this out, that is hilarious!

I was looking back at that 2010 team. The region was really strong that year. Allegheny was ranked 2nd in the country coming into that meet (although that ended up being way off). Dickinson got 5th at nationals, and the other 3 qualifiers were in the top 20 too. The goats still scored only 23 points in that meet. As an alum, the regional meet was the first time I realized how special that team was.

Also, at about 6:30 of the Men's race video, the Army Army Goat Goat chant is perfectly synced up with the Black Eyed Peas song.

Great find, Luke.

I don't want to burden this team with any expectations of living up to prior squads. But one thing I will say is that the 2010 team had five first time All Americans that day. This year's team is running at such a high level and should take confidence in that, even if they (other than Henry) haven't been top 50 before.
