The NCAA has released its official psych sheets (along with the invite line) for the 2020 Men’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. The meet itself will take place in two weeks, from March 25-28 in Indianapolis.


Athletes who are invited are able to swim extra events where they have a B cut – those are the entrants below the invite line on the official psych sheets.

The cut-line fell exactly where we projected it – after line 29 in every event but the 100 breast and 200 breast.

Texas coach Eddie Reese has already revealed that his team will take 16 swimmers and 4 divers to stay under the NCAA roster cap. That means two Texas swimmers currently on the psych sheets will be removed, and the top two alternates (Braga Verhage of Tennessee and Ryan Baker of Virginia) will be added to the meet.

Curious to see a breakdown of invited swimmers by class ie. freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors.

The class was one of the least deep coming out of high school anyways… hell, Maxime was really the only one who projected to score back then.

There has been a lot of talk about Texas having so many qualifiers, but I’m curious as to what the smallest team to win an NCAA title in the last 15 years or so looked like. Does anyone remember a team that won that had an unusually small roster for a winning team (10-12 guys)?

Michigan won with 7 back in the 90s, no?

Not true

According to this article, they had 10 guys scoring:

I wouldn’t be surprised if the combination of 7 swimmers (individual and relays) would have been enough to win the meet though, and maybe that is where the misconception comes from. I mean they scored 1/3 of their points in just the 400 IM, 500 and 1650…that is insane

200 Breast or 200 Free?

What happens when swimmers get told by their university that they can’t compete? Does the alternate list get updated as folks get added?
