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.
