      They obviously aren’t paying attention to these message boards or they’d know better. That DQ hurts Emory, obviously.

      1:30.47… and all very solid splits. It makes one realize how fast the national record (1:28.75) really is. Toughest record on the books? I think so.

      Yeah Davis 25.00, I believe he has been 24.9 once before, but he should go 55 mid tonight. What a race that will be

      something has to be wrong with those pads, there is no way, 9 relays jumped between prelims and finals. I would like to see the actual take off splits.

      The fact that only 13 of the relays finished, maybe they should reconsider using the RJP’s or possilby the swimmers should stay on the blocks a bit longer!!

      I know it has been said, it has to be done in the water, but WOW, at d1’s the starts are in the .2 .3 range maybe everyone needs to just slow down a bit on the starts.

      Im sure a lot of D1 schools have the RJP’s to use, how many D3 schools can really afford them? I know that you would only NEED 1 or 2 to practice, but that is still quite expensive, and you need to use them in meets as well to get comfortable with them at real speeds.

      OK, i found out about Thomas in the 100 back. Apparently coming into the 50 (he was right with mitchell), he flipped over at the flags, apparently thinking he saw the flags or something, i have no clue, but he flipped over, realized what he did and put his hands on his head and stopped. the assistant coach i heard this from said he had never seen anything like it in his life.

      No clue about the 200 results.

      Thomas DQ’ed in the 100 Back? a phone call says that Thomas turned over at the flags and was like “WTF” and stopped.

      Only saw a few results of the breastroke 1-2-3 for kenyon.. with fonsy in 3rd.

      This is the craziest meet ever.

      In the cosol heat of the 200 free the system shut down so they are going to have to use Stopwatch times.

    • #36950

      so theyve been using stopwatches since the 200??

      That happened once last week at the women’s meet, in the womens’ 400 Medley relay.

      Sasser went a 45… on that lead off.

      They fixed the pads after the console of the 200, they worked fine afterwards.

      something like it happened in ’04 with tim newton. i think he was in the first heat of finals for the 4im. his last turn he flipped at the flags (no where near the wall) and i guess he just laid on his belly and kicked to the turn. he went 402 but he would have been 400 (as a freshmen).

      pretty sure newton should have been dqed then. Your turn must be one continuous motion you can’t roll over and kick the last 5 yards, that is cheating.

      4im. last turn, not backstroke, freestyle. and if it were backstroke, you can kick as long as you continue forward momentum with your arms.

      I am actually pretty sure that it is high school where you can continually kick as long as there is no more forward motion with your arms. But I am pretty sure that USS rules say that you must continue into the turn. I remember being disqualified for that when i was younger.

      How ive undersood the rule, which could be wrong, as long as there is continual motion (kicking) the turn is ok. but then again i could be completly wrong.

    • #36959

      If any one remember the Olympics with Peirsol it was a big thing about him in the 200 back. kicking into the wall is not considered a continous motion. If you kick into the wall or float into the wall, then you should be DQ’d. Kind of strange since if you do that your turn is messed up and it is no advantage.

      USS rule for the Backstroke – no kicking independent from a continuous turning motion – but the loophole is that if you roll to your breast and realize that you are too far from the wall then you can keep kicking to the wall as long as you slowly but continuously keep your arm stroke pulling underwater. So if your brain is working, there can be a lot of time from having your arm overhead to having it make it down to your thigh. Of course if your brain was working you might not have flipped out there in the middle of the pool.
