Think the new suits had any impact?Rich, these cuts were first proposed back when the prevailing thoughts were that the suits would not be allowed in the NCAA. The new suits may mean that there are more than 3 or 4 “A” cuts.

One bit of trivia, one of the “Qualified in 2008” time belongs to the son of a Masters swimmer. I wonder who he is…:bliss:

Rob it must be pretty thrilling to watch that meet each year.
Those times are just beyond amazing. Everyone of them.

Not sure which is more unbelievable...the :42 100 free, the :46 flat 100 fly, or the :52 100 breast.

The women's cuts look just as filthy as the men's, too. I think there were way too many girls that made A cuts last year and the times have been adjusted commensurately.

How are these times determined?
