Yet Another USATF Controversy? Might Galen Rupp Have To Qualify For World Indoors Out

Rupp is currently only #42 on the US 3000 list for 2016. Luckily for Rupp and USATF, there are 17 collegians on the list ahead of Rupp who are likely to race NCAAs so Rupp moves up to the unofficial #25 seed. But there are 8 collegians ahead of Rupp in terms of 2016 seasonal best times who are unlikely to make the NCAA meet and thus might want to run USAs instead. Now many, possibly all, of the collegians may not race at USAs, but if you look only at pros, Rupp is still already #17 in the US right now. Thus if everyone declares for the 3000 or if a couple of collegians decide to run USAs, Rupp could theoretically be in the slow heat at USAs — assuming USATF adheres to their field size of 16.
