Open Turn: College Conference Championship Chat, Round 3

*Video edited by SwimSwam contributor Coleman Hodges.

This isn’t your general preview discussion. Morgan and Garrett are two big swim geeks who are breaking down splits, lineups, and even team chemistry to bring you the most in depth conversation on college conference championships. This week, they look at what went down at Men’s Big 10s, Men’s ACCs, Men’s Big 12s, and Women’s Pac 12s. At Big 10s, Michigan looks impressive but the conference as a whole showed some really great talent. At Men’s ACCs, a streak ended and one team really impressed in the pool. What can anyone learn from Big 12s? At Women’s Pac 12s, the star studded Cal Bears looked tough but there’s one spot where they may have exposed themselves.

Also, what can we expect from Men’s Pac 12s this week?

I am also predicting Kyle Whitaker wins the 200 IM, Bosch win the 200 fly, and Michigan puts all 4 800 free relay members in the top 8 of the 200 free. Also, Shane Ryan of PSU will win the 100 back and 100 free by his senior year, but not this season. I don’t have any inside info but after watching them swim that’s what I believe will happen. No matter what, I hope it’s a great… Read more »
