    "December 31

    On of the nation's top recruits, Ammar Moussa, chooses to attend the University of Colorado next fall. After narrowing down from four schools (UNC, Oregon, Cal, CU), Moussa decided that Boulder was the place he felt he could be most successful."

    I guess it was a bit of a surprise to those who follow track recruiting that we beat out Cal.

    Welcome to the Buff family, Ammar!

    Nice work on Coach Wetmore's part here. With the Class Golf signed it looks like our non-revenue sports are picking up steam.

    Wow - a lot of hating on the flotrack.org comments. Welcome to the b&g, Mr. Moussa! Great pick-up by Wetmore & staff (again!).

    Wow. So there's, like, a forum for track. Kind of like a football forum, but for track? Where people actually know these kids, their form "form?" and all that stuff?

    Who knew? Next thing you'll be telling me is that people actually follow soccer.

    I wish there were more XC and Track discourse here at Allbuffs. Cross Country is the one program under Bohn that has been consistently respectable. Of course I'm biased.

    Allbuffs will reach it's fullest potential once the current and former CU ski team start posting. I'm guessing that those skandinavian kids could add some serious hilarity to this place.

    Recruit some people here to talk T&F/CC. It would be cool to get that going.

    Is it against NCAA rules to send a box of Allbuffs T-Shirts to coach Whitmore?

    So, I guess it would be inappropriate if I asked you to PM me some pics of your mom?

    XC and Track are very underappreciated (I am biased too). What Wetmore has managed to do at CU is amazing. People complain about our football/basketball facilities, and rightfully so at times. But the facilities we have for XC and track are horrible, yet Wetmore has managed to land several runners that equate to 5* recruits.

    Wetmore is definitely a great coach and asset to the AD.

    But I thought that we had recently build a new XC course on the South Campus and also did a new outdoor T&F facility this decade that was good enough to host the Big 12 championships?

    Is the issue more about our lack of decent indoor competition and training facilities? If so, all the more reason to push for a multi-use indoor facility that includes a full-size football practice field.

    The XC course has been on the South Campus for a while now. If you read Running with the Buffaloes, Wetmore does not exactly praise it. Potts Field has gotten a lot better. It was at the bottom of the Big 12 and it will be at or near the bottom of the Pac-12 too. But it is better than it was a decade ago.

    The indoor facilities are very outdated and I hope the longterm plans have something to rectify that. The one thing advantage for XC that we do have is the altitude and abundance of running spots around Boulder. We also have a pretty solid in-state talent pool. The cold weather hinders us for track recruiting though.

    Totally agree. Would love to chat up the XC. I'm totally biased as well. Anyone know how well the rest of the class is?
