    I just got back from the pool. As I was swimming, I was wondering how they did.

    Glad to see National Champs are in Texas, even if they are in CS. I think I might try and go.

    Re: Longhorns UT University of Texas at Austin

    I love floswimming when they capture meets like this and I make time to watch it. I only had a chance to check out the two events I care about -- men's and women's 500 frees. Things I noticed on just a cursory watch:

    • traditional suits on all swimmers, both sexes
    • turns: very few of the swimmers were doing much in the way of SDK off the walls. I've been debating whether or not this should be part of my 500 free strategy.
    • kicking: the guy who won the men's race had an interesting approach in that he appeared to 6 beat kick the first half of each lap and then ramp down to a 2 beat into the wall. The women seemed to be more consistently 4 to 6 beat kicking throughout the race.

    I hope NCAAs will get onto the web. I'm looking forward to watching more.

    this angle was much better than when floswimming showed USMS 2008 SCY Champs.

    Re: Longhorns UT University of Texas at Austin

    Not sure if floswimming will be permitted to video NCAA's because of broadcasting rights issues

    Coaches made a no-tech-suit briefs only agreement before the meet

    some swimmers SDK in the 500, usually like 2 or 3 off turns
    some take 5 or more off the start and some take 4, 5, or 6 on the last turn

    years ago bruce hayes used to 6 beat kick off turns then settle into a 2 beat kick

    watch the mens 200 fly it's a pretty exciting race
    also the Mens 100 free
    Matt Target went 42.40 mid season in a brief

    Do you know if that was just for this dual meet? Or, is this a general agreement across Div I coaches for dual meets?

    Re: Longhorns UT University of Texas at Austin

    I am going to try and make it down to see the remainder of the meet. It all depends on what time I get freed up tomorrow.

    If I cannot make it tomorrow, I will def be in CS for Nationals.

    Re: Longhorns UT University of Texas at Austin

    So the women are leading Arizona by 30 and the mean are training Arizona by 20.

    Anyone have thoughts on if the women can hold off an AZ charge and if the men have enough to make a comeback? Would love to see Texas sweep this one.

    Re: Longhorns UT University of Texas at Austin

    This is my first year swimming and my first year watching swimming times. How normal is this in comparison to new seasons in years past? I assume that without the suits all these times are high above PBs and records, but how much of it is attributable to coming away from off-season?

    Do swimmers at UT even have an off-season?!

    OK, too things come to mind here:

    1) Um, whoops, first 450 was out too slow
    and
    2) That is just SICK. Less than .8 slower than I go in a 50 SPRINT.

    Re: Longhorns UT University of Texas at Austin

    Kudos also to frosh Austin Surhoff for doing pretty well in two events:

    200 IM: 1 Surhoff, Austin Texas 1:51.62
    24.66 53.78 (29.12) 1:25.72 (31.94) 1:51.62 (25.90)

    200 back: 2 Surhoff, Austin Texas 1:49.08
    26.36 54.01 (27.65) 1:22.06 (28.05) 1:49.08 (27.02)

    Buck up: I'm sure you get at least 1 second from the dive. Er, I mean...
