Simply incredible. Do you normally have such a major problem with honesty and confronting/handling your own mistakes? How weaseling and/or obtuse must one be to be unable to fully realize and admit that

It seems to be a part of at least some college programs too. At least it is at Colorado under Wetmore.

carries a significantly different meaning than

It seems to be a part of at least some college programs too. At least it has been at Colorado under Wetmore.

or

It seems to be a part of at least some college programs too. At least it was at one time at Colorado under Wetmore.

or

It seems to be a part of at least some college programs too. At least it used to be at Colorado under Wetmore.

If you had chosen to use either of the final three as your statement, then it would have actually been true and I could not take issue with it. Fact of the matter is, whether you have the wherewithal to own up to it or not, you only know what was true in an account of an instance from 1998, not what is true today. Should I be surprised by this continued refusal to face the truth? Your statement indicated in no uncertain terms that you were commenting on the current training methods of Wetmore’s runners at CU. I know that I have made it perfectly clear that I meant the present. You learned what you know from what you read in a book that is an embellished historical record. Since you have referred to nothing besides that then it is apparent that you have never been to a workout at Potts field or Buffalo Ranch while the CU runners have been there, nor passed them on a long run out by the Rez or at the tank, nor have you socialized with any of the runners featured in that book or their associates, nor have you been in any other sort of position to personally observe them in their training or receive first-hand accounts regarding such. I have.
