Ram On is on a distinguished road
This analysis utilizes the current rosters of both teams. Tiffin lost some major talent from last year's squad and so did Washington. But top programs tend to re-load. Washington is a very well-balanced team top to bottom. Tiffin is a sprint/field event squad with the exception of James Ngandu in the distance events. In the interest of simplicity I'll only list marks, not names.

SUMMARY
Out of 21 events compared, UW was superior in all but one. Far superior in most. Where Tiffin had the edge was the 10,000. But not really. Tiffin's best mark was 29:29. Their next best runner was approx 4 minutes slower. UW only ran seniors in the event last year. They ran 28:53 and 29:09 but since I only counted present rosters, Tiffin got the edge since those UW seniors graduated.This year UW will run a couple more seniors in the 10,00 and these guys will have 5000 PR's that are sub 14:00. So they are capable of 29:00 in the 10,000 (or faster).

UW is a very good team but certainly not the best team in the U.S. in D1. Not even close. On the other hand Tiffin is the top team in the U.S. in D2...or at least close. So UW coming out on top in virtually every event gives us a glimpse of the night and day difference between the top levels of division 2 and a team that isn't even ranked as high in D1 as Tiffin is in D2.

This comparison is in no way meant to dis-respect Tiffin. That would be inappropriate and out of line. It is just an illustration of the difference between D1 and D2. Go Dragons!!
