We visited Palo Alto on a Friday morning, where the Stanford men were welcoming in an Aloha Friday. This meant power kick for Dan Schemmel and his cardinal squad. Schemmel took a majority of the men and led them through three rounds of 6×25 with sox and 3 rounds of 6×50 descending by round. Coach Neil Caskey had a single lane of true distance swimmers that got in their kicking early then finished with 5×200 pull, descending 1-5.

Maybe the Stanford men should practice holding seed times at NCs and actually developing their recruits instead of regressing their development
Clam down over there buddy. There is a lot of pressure that goes along with earning a Stanford degree while competing in a varsity sport. Just be impressed by all athletes that compete at a high level while attending top-tier academic institutions. They’re student athletes with an emphasis on student.
“I didnt come here to play school.” But on a serious note, a lot of these athletes couldnt have gotten into academically prestigious schools on their own and struggle with the classes and swimming because they shouldnt be there and end up doing the ‘easier’ degrees that maybe or maybe wont pay off following graduation
I was curious. Among the upperclassmen (freshmen and sophomores are all listed as ‘undeclared’), I counted:
3 Computer Science
5 Economics (1 + history)
1 Human Biology (aka pre-med)
You sure you wanna hang your hat on them getting easier degrees that won’t pay off after graduation?
This is an ignorant statement. I am not going to name names, but quite a few world class swimmers coming out of high school (even some Oly medalists) were not admitted to schools like Stanford even considering their swimming prowess. I can’t speak for the revenue sports, but in the swimming world if you don’t have the chops academically, you aren’t going to Palo Alto.
shame on Minakov for regressing and winning NCs
Yes, swimmers should focus on swimming faster and not slower, tell me more mighty genius Andrew
Including relays. The Stanford men had 20/33 swims faster than seeds at the 2022 NCAASs, 61% better.
Georgia was 19/28, 68% better
NC State was 30/45, 67% better
Florida was 28/49, 57% better
ASU was 13/36, 36% better
Indiana was 15/29, 52% better
I could be off by one swim or so on those but basically in 10 minutes I was able to find that Stanford was around the same or better as far as holing seed times than all the teams that finished near them at NCAAs.
shows us your math as they say. I don’t they did any worse than any of the teams near their ranking. Yeah Cal and TX always look better cause they don’t even try at conference but most others don’t do better than their seeds.
Swim swam breakdown withdrawal. Hope it’s on the way.
Please! So much to catch up on! 21.9 for a 50 fly split, Honda and his 200 fly record, the Wolfpack men and their depth, and countless hot takes by the hosts. Looking forward to the next release!
Dan sounds like he’s talking to age groupers lol
I find the woo-ing very motivational
That facility is the greatest recruiting eye candy to be imagined. Likely the best overall swimming & diving venue in the country.
Questionable taking 2 stokes at end of each lap of kick. Pablo wouldn’t have cut corners like this
Pablo would go up the stairs 2 at a time…
Then run down and do it again, this time going up the stairs he missed the first time.
With NO KICKBOARD too!
