Dave Durden talks about Cal’s ups and downs on day 1

Cal sits 2nd after one day of swimming at the 2013 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. Head Coach, Dave Durden says there are always good breaks and bad breaks at a meet like NCAAs. But at a meet where only 30% of the swimmers are posting best times, it seems like most of the Bears are posting PRs. It may not have been a start like last year’s, where Cal won 3 events, but Durden has 5 swimmers who he didn’t even use tonight and the Bears have moved up on the psyche sheet’s projected points. Durden doesn’t look at the psyche sheet but he talks in this interview about how he analysis his team’s performances at a meet like this.
