Official Men’s NCAA Psych Sheet/Team lists released

The Official Psych Sheet has been released for the 2013 Men’s NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championship.  Here are the pertinent links:

The cut off line was 29 swimmers per event.  There was a lot of initial speculation as to what would happen with Caleb Weir and John Murray of Texas, as they were projected to be tied for the final overall spot in the 235-swimmer cap placed by the NCAA.  According to the psych sheet, Weir will be swimming individuals, while Murray is currently listed as first alternate.

… And here’s a breakdown of the teams with more than 10 individual swimmers qualified.

Can someone explain “optional entries”? It appears the list is incomplete, there are entries that should be included but are not.

“optional entries” mean that once a swimmer is invited, either through the cut-line (this year it’s 29) or through an automatic qualifying time, they can then swim up to two other individual events for which they have met the “B” qualifying standard.

That is why you’ll see someone who was only the 35th fastest 200 breaststroker, or whatever, listed as #31 on the official psych sheets. There were swimmers in between who were never “invited” to the meet.

ok, so…if you get invited in an individual event do you get to swim your other events in which you have a b cut?

Clarify – that is correct.

Braden, you know all the rules. Riddle me this, what was the tie-breaker between Caleb Weir and John Murray?

he might’ve had another cut? or had more B cuts or maybe he achieved the standard earlier in the year

The tie breaker was how close they were to the championship record in their second best event.
