You should know this was never done before at Auburn. It was conjured up for the floswimming cameras. I interviewed Brett Hawke about it and he said they won't do it again.

Observation: as the set goes on, their teamates seem to be fewer and fewer elsewhere in the pool.

Question: Will they lose their Gatorade endorsement? Or perhaps cause a warning lable on the bottles?

This was a gag (take that any way you want to) set they just decided to do for the cameras.

Just wrong...yet funny to watch.

I'm not sure how much conventional benefit they derived from something like this, but I'm a strong believer of mental toughness training and comraderie building (and the occasional arbitrary torture of elite athletes for fun). Looks like a good way to break up the mind-numbing monotony that can settle into a program like that.
