Scoring

The biggest points gain vs the psych sheet came from Louisville who picked up 58.5 points (the psych sheet doesn’t contain diving, so team’s swimming only point totals were compared to their psych sheet projections). Stanford picked up the second most gaining 50.5. The biggest point drop came from USC who lost 58 points vs pre meet projections. The next biggest drop was Auburn who lost 41.5. The fact that Tennessee only dropped 27 points vs the psych sheet despite DQ’ing 2 relays indicates that they had a pretty good meet.

Congrats to the Lady Cardinals. . . .
Here come the men’s Longhorn swimmers. . .

Hopefully Texas men can surprisingly sweep all 5 relays.

I actually think it will be tough to win one.

BaldingEagle

Put another way, Stanford was so dominant and deep that they could have won the meet comfortably WITHOUT individual swims by Manuel, Ledecky, and Eastin.

Just wow.

AvidSwimFan

Most of the non-stars more than pulled their weight, earning crucial points to help lift the team to this dominating victory. I wish they could be named individually because each one of them was very impressive too. As we saw, it’s one thing to be seeded coming into the meet, it’s another to actually perform, get a finals spot and score for your team.

Tennessee technically only DQ’ed one relay. They never got called for the 200 medley mishap.

AvidSwimFan

That’s why it reads dq and “miss swim”.

Don't want to miss anything?
