    No, they haven't been reading your post. They want to read things from people that are respected for their views on swimming. .

    The UT swimmers could care less than zero about what you think.

    Donate some money to the program if you want to be heard.

    Hey thewookiee & Hofffman
    Yeah I should've known better than to post another negative comment about tech suits -especially on a Monday morning when everyone's in a thundercrap mood already.

    However I thought I'd see if I could get by with it anyway.

    Our responses are about you being stupid enough to think that elite swimmers at the university of texas, which has some of the best coaches in the world, would actually care what a hack like you thinks about anything.

    Hey thewookiee
    On a more serious note, there are people in the elite swimming field who echo the sentiments of "hacks" like me.

    As for my comment on this particular thread (that sparked another inferno -as usual-), I was just speculating that someone at UT might be thinking it's time to "put the worms back in the can" and try to eliminate the variables that tech suits have brought into the fray.

    Dolphin,

    Please start your own anti-suit thread rather than hijacking this one?

    UT and every other NCCA Div 1 school follows the NCAA suit rules.
    Coach & athlete opinions don't matter, the rules are set, they are what they are.


    Men will wear suits like the:

    Speedo FS PRO Jammers
    or
    TYR Tracer Light Jammer

    Women will wear suits like the:

    Tyr Tracer Light Short John
    or the
    Speedo FS Pro Recordbreaker Kneeskin

    And the people that are on the elite scene, that have contributed to the sport in some form or fashion, their opinions are respected. Just like people on this forum that have contributed to swimming, such as ande, fortress, stillwater, midas,swimshark,geek, they have all contributed to many discussions on the forum and to fellow teammates. They have offered advice on swimming topics outside of tech suits issues to help people.

    You haven't offered helpful advice on swimming related topics such as training, techincal advice, meet preparation. Therefore, you are a hack.


    And check the date of the duel meet. It was last Jan. Both teams wore tech suits at their respective conference meets, ncaa's, usa nationals. A lot of teams didn't pull out tech suits for duel meets. They didn't feel the need to waste time putting on the suit or using the suit for a duel meet, where most teams train through them anyway.

    In looking at the IU & UT results I was wondering where was Jimmy Feigen? Or did I miss something?

    Chris, you must not have seen Wolf's new start. He waits til everyone is on the blocks, then jumps up and does a 1950's style take off, while everyone else is hitting the water, so I doubt he gets that 1 sec.

    Interesting. Given the way the NCAA letter was worded, especially WRT disqualifications, perhaps the coaches got together and said "Screw it, until this mess is 100% clear, the teams will just wear something that absolutely no one can say is against the rules while giving no one a 'suit advantage' ."

    Smart.

    Re: Longhorns UT University of Texas at Austin

    Great thread, guys! Texas is my favorite NCAA team. That said, I'm totally psyched about the Invite, but totally bummed that we won't get the coverage on Floswimming...

    If you all like UGA swimming, there's a specific channel on Youtube where videos of the most current meets are updated every week. Kind of like Flo, but without the commentary. There's also some great NCAA Nat's coverage, like Basson's 500 free and Clary's 3:35 (!!!!) 400 IM.
