Vs seed (so swimming event’s only) the best day belonged to Cal who picked up 49 points vs the psych sheet. Also having outstanding day’s were Texas who gained 42 and USC who picked up 41 points. The biggest point drop on the day came from Grand Canyon who lost 20 vs the psych sheet and NC State and Texas A&M who each lost 19. Compared to their seeds from this morning, Cal had the best session gaining 10 points. USC dropped the furthest tonight, losing 14.

The highest’s single individual event score was Cal’s 41 points in the 100 fly. Followed by Indiana’s 40 points in the 3 meter, and Florida’s 37 100 fly points.

A Texas 4-peat is starting to look realistic unless Schooling screws up even more (200 fly, and costing them a possible win in the 400free relay)

200 SIDESTROKE B CUT

Count me in what appears to be the minority here that I would be bummed with a Texas team victory this year. That said, it looks like this is a dogfight among Texas, Indiana, and California for Top 3. I think those are the 3, and highest chance that it’s in that order. On paper California looks like a lock on 3rd and only 3rd but if they keep sneaking prelims swimmers into 8th and 16th and continue to move up spots in finals, there could be some surprised faces tomorrow night.

After winning the 200 FR, I would call Florida a solid favorite in the 400 FR. NC State might have challenged, but not without Ress. Texas is in my pick ’em but they don’t look up to it. Still bet they win the meet.

ProTip: Eddie might have thought of recruiting some breaststrokers before Licon graduated….

Damn Autocorrect

He was too busy winning National Championships to worry about a little thing like recruiting. But I’m sure he will thank you later for the tip… after he wins another National Championship, which will make 14 more than you!

R&R

He did. Look up Austin Temple’s HS times.

Right Dude Here

Ooh gonna be a good one. Texas could reaslistically go 4 up in the two back, with 3 up 1 down a much more reasonable possibility.
