      Texas had their annual Orange vs White intramural meet, and it was pretty impressive: http://texassports.com/doc_lib/000_stats/sw/092906_results.htm

      They have a couple freshmen STUDS, for example:

      David Walters: 1:35.07 200 free, 4:25 500, 44.3 100 free… he also went a 1:38 in the dual meet

      Rick Berens: 44.4 100 free, 1:37 200 free, 47.2 100 fly, 1:45.6 200 fly, 1:49 200 IM… he also went 48 and 1:47 in the respect flys at the dual

      Maybe this is the year they challenge to get the title back…

      Yeah they have a few decent swimmers that is for sure. Probably not enough to win it this year, but next year might be there year.

      I tried to find the freshmen for the other “major” teams, ie stanford and auburn, and stanford had 1 big stud (don’t remember times) but auburn had like 20 freshmen so i was only able to go through so many before i got tired of it. I found some semi-studs in their lineup for freshmen but not many. I think that is the case with a lot of their guys coming in, very good but not stuperstars, marsh is just a great coach.

      not to mention that they get litterally, close to 20 freshman each year.

      Virginia has a very good squad this year, something like 3 guys under 21.3 in the 50, one at 20.2 or so.

      Michigan has a sick breastroker

      and thats all i know

      that might be good for virginia, but if you go 21.3 and go d1, you must really think something of yourself

      West Virgina has a sick recruiting class this year. OF course Sergio is probably one of the top 5 recruiters in the country

      I looked over WVU’s recruiting class and it looks solid. Good breastroker out of Cali, and a ton of foreigners including a couple very good backstrokers. Nothing compared to a Texas, Michigan or Stanford, but will certainly help them move up.

      NO but they probably have a top 10 class. I am really interested to see what this Nathan Adrian guy does at CAL. Mike Bottom might just do wonders for this guy. They lose Cavic this year, so I have to think this guy might go 19.5 by the end of the year.

      Mike is one of the best sprint coaches in the world, hes done wonders before.

      Michigan has a 54.5 (ithink) 1:58.2 breastroker who from what i heard was one of those ed moses types, not a big time swimmer until his junior year of highschool

      I’m not sure what losing Cavic has to do with Nathan going 19.5 or not this season, but obviously, hes quite a recruit, and at 17 years old, probably has more maturing left to do than most.

      Scott Spann (the guy you are referring to) has been an elite age grouper for a while. Went a 56 as a sophomore, a 59 as a 13-14.

      I think his dad was an Olympian. Not to say that he won’t get better, but certainly not the Ed Moses/ Scott Usher out-of-nowhere type.

      Well Cal will need someone to replace what Cavic gave them and who better than adrian. If he goes 19.5 then he would be right there with what Cavic usually did.

      Anyone see results of UM and UF??? Crazy fast! and very young swimmers too. Florida gave Michigan a solid pounding, but niether team has many seniors i could find and not even that many juniors. Best swim of the meet had to be the 1:44 2back by some random sophomore from Florida.

      Lucas Salatta was the guy who went 1:44. How about the 2 florida newcomers Frasher and Pinzon. They are loaded once again. They should be fun to watch this year

      There has been some questions as to whether he will be eligible to compete for UF, I have heard some stories about him maybe going pro? Anyone know anything different.

      stanford’s big stud: patrick simpkins, trial qualifier in the 200 meter fly with a 2:03.55. and hes a nice guy to boot.

      Ouch, when that’s your big stud, you’re hurting at Stanford.

      54.5 out of a HSer for the 100 breast is pretty fast. Bowman should have him going 53 mid to low this year.

      Scott Spann (the father) was a 3 time NCAA D-I champion from Auburn. He won the 200 IM in 1977 (1:48.26) and 1978 (1:48.69) and the 100 breaststroke in 1978 (56.62). He is not listed as a past Olympian in the Auburn Media Guide. Recall in those days the 200 IM was not an Olympic event.
