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

NCAA DI Men – Official Psych Sheet.
NCAA DI Men – Official Invited Swimmers by Team.
NCAA DI Men – Official List of Eligible Institutions for Relay Events.
NCAA DI Men – Official Meet Alternate List.

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.

Team Swimmers in Individual Events
Michigan 17
Cal 16
Florida 14
Stanford 14
Arizona 13
Georgia 11
Texas 11
Indiana 10
USC 10

Braden can you explain how J Lyons was left out of the 1650, Did he not have any other B cuts?

He was left out by coach’s decision. They scratches him before the cut lines were even drawn.

Even though you can swim any event you have a B standard in once invited, it’s interesting to note of the teams that sent the most swimmers which ones actually had athletes who met the standard to be invited in more than one individual event.

Michigan 14/17 (five invited in 3 events)
Florida 10/14 (six invited in 3 events)
Stanford 7/14 (one invited in 3 events)
California 7/16 (two invited in 3 events)
Arizona 5/13 (none invited in 3 events)

Great analysis Josh. B standards seem to fall so easily for the top teams…kind of surprising the numbers are so low. Definitely surprised my perception.

Braden,
I assume those numbers mean how many of them were in the top 29 in multiple events, not how many of them will eventually swim 3 because of B cuts. I assume that number is much higher.

Thanks Braden. So if you’re 30th (not invited) and someone else is 29th (invited), they get as low as a 61st position swim. WUWT?

I never get why people have a problem with this. They are already there, they have proven that they are one of the top 235 performers in the country in an event. That is how we determine the top competitors for the event. Once they are in… let them swim.

There have always been people with way lower seeds getting into the meet, just use to be on relays. At least the 29 fastest get to swim and not the 17 fastest plus a bunch who got in via a relay.
