      I know that David Curtis went 1:37.9 in December in the 200 free, does anyone think that in the next 2 plus years he would have a chance to break Mulvihill’s record of 1:36.6? Now I know this is not considered the nat record, because it was done at the d 1 meet, but the guy was still at kenyon.

      Four words, aside from the likelihood of David Curtis: Matt Stewart, Jacob Koch. Look up the UWSP results, Stewart split a 1:41.9 at a typically slow meet–and he tapers well (as does Koch, MIAC is coming on strong).

      While I am a big Matt Stewart supporter, i think he’ll be about 1:39 and there is a significant difference between a 1:37 and a 1:39, not saying it’s not possible, but I am also not betting on Curtis breaking the record, not this year anyway. As for Koch, I think the 200 is a bit long for him. He will no doubt be in the race with Hanson at MIACs, but look for him to shine in the 100, where he should be top 5 at Nats.

      No I also do not think curtis will break the record this year, I was thinking more like next year or senior year. We are talking about 1.3 seconds in a 200 over a 2 plus year span. Probably a possibility.

      Or positively plausable.

      Thank You Mr. Obvious.
