After three days of swimming and diving, Texas and Cal are still locked in a battle for the NCAA title and it looks like it could come down to the final relay.

The secrets to Texas’ rocket-to-the-top performance on Day 2 –diving and the 400 medley– weren’t as forceful on Day 3 relay, allowing Cal to stay in the game. Texas scored just 23 points in 3-meter diving on Friday versus the 38 they’d racked up on Thursday.

Texas, Cal, and Florida, the top three teams, outscored the psych sheet by 58.5, 43, and 10.5 points respectively. Texas placed four swimmers in the A final of the 400 IM, three in the 200 free, and one each in the 100 fly, 100 breast, and 100 back. Cal had a huge miss when Hugo Gonzalez missed the A final of the 400 IM in prelims. His winning time in the B final was the fastest of the night, and his presence in the A final would have eliminated one of the Texas swimmers. Florida won two individual events (400 IM and 200 free), upsetting Texas’ #1 seeds in both events.

Virginia Tech and Michigan underperformed their psych sheet seedings by 32.5 and 28 points, respectively. Georgia, Louisville, Texas A&M, NC State, and Ohio State all had double-digit misses today.

572.5 to 569.5? Absolutely ridiculous in at least 4 different ways.

Again diving is a separate sport and should be separated 😩

Or make divers one full spot AND they have to swim on a relay 😂

hahahahaha that would be hilarious. Imagine a team placing a relay in an A final only to tank it by putting divers on it.

Again, Eddie wins because he has a complete Swimming AND Diving Team. Which is what the competition calls for. You’d think Dave, and other’s, would’ve gotten the hint by now: YOU NEED DIVER’s to win the meet

It does not look like it does. So most likely add at least 20 points for Texas there.
