Day 1 Ups/Downs: A Strong Morning Gives The Longhorns An Early Advantage

With six A final swims, one B final swim, and three divers that are expected to score on the 1 meter, the Texas Longhorns have the advantage going into tonight’s finals.

The Longhorns aren’t running away with anything, however. Michigan will have 6 A final swims tonight, with both relays in their respective A finals as well. California will also be very competitive with 5 A final swims and 3 B finals swims. Florida also went 5 up, 3 down, but their 200 freestyle relay missed the A final.

Stanford swam Nolan three times this morning. It seems like they might burn that kid out. Not sure he can break 1:40 tonight since he is probably already tired.

Nolan’s carrying so much of that team it’s not even funny. Murphy is going to be right there – and I hear he’s hungry.
