I will never forget the experience. It's a
big time school and I'm proud to be a 'Sooner'.
I received a good education, but I'm disappointed
in my athletic performance. After coaching
25 years, I realized I was in over my head
physically., but I also realize our distance
coaching maybe not what it could have been.
Editor's note. In my letter of inquiry to
Ted, I asked him if he had been running in
Europe in the Military Championships. When
I was stationed there in 69-71 I had noticed
a Ted Oliver in the finals of the U.S. Military
Championships entries. Ted wrote in his letter
to me. "That was me in the miltary track
results in Europe. I ran well to get to the
finals but bombed int he big race." I
think it was the 5000m.
