    The CU athletic department is doing a barnstorming tour around Colorado on Monday, May 13. They are scheduled to swing by the Longmont Museum & Cultural Center sometime between 10:00 And 11:00 AM. Apparently, they are bringing every head coach, along with Mike Bohn. This may be your best chance to ask Richard Rokos what it's like to win a national championship.

    Don't ever forget Mark Wetmore, the cross country and track coach NCAA champ in a sport with far more competitors:

    Wetmore’s squads have won five NCAA team titles since 2000. The women won in 2000, while the men won the following year. Both teams won the championship again in 2004 (CU became only the third school to win both championships in the same year) and in 2006 the men won again. Wetmore has coached Adam Goucher (1998), Jorge Torres (2002) and Dathan Ritzenhein (2003) to men’s individual titles, while Kara Grgas-Wheeler won the 2000 women’s crown.
    Wetmore became CU’s sixth head cross country and track and field coach on Nov. 6, 1995. He has tutored 53 individual conference champions and 11 individuals who have combined for 18 NCAA titles. Wetmore has coached 78 individuals to 228 All-American selections. He has produced 29 conference championship teams, most recently capturing the 2012 Pac-12 Men’s Cross Country Championship.

    And he does it, NOT with foreign "students", but with a strong core of Colorado kids who did not come to CU as HS AA runner's, but whom he has developed into NCAA champions and even Olympians.

    If you would like to meet and talk to coach Wetmore, you are free to do so.

    And to answer the question about whether this is the coaches caravan - no. This is a fundraising trip for the facilities upgrades. There is a significant donor who lives in Longmont that they're coming to see. The original plan was to have the bus stop at the donors house. The donor asked that they have it at the museum instead.

    For being a really poorly marketed event, it went surprisingly well. I'd venture that about 30 people showed up. It was both a pitch from CU to their large donor and a pitch from that donor for a capital campaign for the museum. I had a chance to talk with Tad, MM, Mike Bohn, and a few others. It was a great opportunity to talk one-on-one with any of the coaches. They would answer any question. Very nice job by everybody involved.

    Did Bohn hit you up for loose change in your wallet and was his iPhone Square enabled to process credit card transactions?

    I'm going to go to the ASU and UCLA roadies for sure this year. I'm thinking about Utah.

    For home games, I'll fly in for one or two.

    What would you like me to say?

    I spoke with Tad and told him that he had done something I didn't think was possible at CU. I asked him about King, and said he (King) was going to be very good. I warned MM that he didn't have any friends at the Denver Post.

    He said (incorrectly) that the Post does he same thing to the Broncos. I felt obligated to tell him that was not the case. He will learn soon enough, but I recommended that he stick with the local guys.

    I thought maybe Darth was referring to your conversation with Plati. How'd that go?

    Plati didn't come along.

    I'm really resisting the temptation to snark, here. So many opportunities...

    The irony is that there were snacks. Good ones. Cookies, brownies, Rice Crispy Treats dipped in chocolate...

    I was going to try and go to this, but it's kind of an inexplicable location. Not exactly Buff country, but you might see some homeless wearing old Buffs gear. I might try and go to Blake St. tonight.

    Yeah. But McDonald's franchisees generally have a ****-ton of money.
