      SilentP, do you know what is going on there. I have a feeling that a few guys have quit the team.

      Davis is hurting with a shoulder, had a cortizone shot and will be swimming again… my gut says he will still be solid because he was fast at the begining of the season, but won’t drop a ton

      Diver is supposedly elligible per Taber… he called the compliance office and they said he should be ok, here were his exact words “I called the compliance guy at the College and he said he had every reason to believe Shawn was fine too.”

      Brian Johnson is no longer on the roster… he and Yuri are the noticeable changes and he told me the roster is exactly accurate, so that hurts (them, not me, I laugh) because he is a good swimmer in weaker events

      He’ll be swimming at MIAAs, and in fact, swimming this coming weekend.

      Also, the reason for Beckwith’s superb times of late is due to an injury that has caused him to not do a ton of swimming, so he’s basically been rested. I don’t expect much more from him at MIAAs.

      okay last question. If bergman is diving that means 2 divers. I thought they had 3 divers? Did one quit?

      All I know is that “the roster is 100% upt ot date”; he did mention losing another guy since break, so that might have been him. If I had to guess, I would put the blame on the academic rigor of Olivet.

      MIAA recruiting… got the following from Taber, please don’t let it get back to him that you know any of this or I won’t keep getting info…

      I had a couple heartbreaking ‘no’s’ yesterday on the phone from guys. 2
      of our top 3 breaststrokers in the same day said no, leaving only one
      real good breaststroker left out there for us and I have to believe he
      is leaning heavily towards hope right now. unfortunately enough one of
      my no’s last night also said he was either going ot hope or not
      swimming and he’s a 1:00 and a sub 2 IMer. It was not a good night for
      the men, at all.

      Hope looks to be doing more than alright with recruits, and those are
      just the gusy I have crossed with. We have one commit on the guys side
      and 2 on the women’s side. Our women are better than our guy too. I
      don’t know why I have run into them so much (probably because making the
      initial adjustment was tough and I started recruiting the same way…for
      the most part) but still. Damn. They have had a TON of interest that I
      have seen.

      Our breaststroker still out there is a 59/209.

      So a lot of Olivet’s recruits are looking at Hope, and it seems like Hope is getting them?

      Trust me, P, you are getting played. Actually, you are not getting played, you are probably aware that he is not telling the truth.

      I understand completely, just thought I’d let you know. If true though, I find it amusing because he wasn’t crossing with them at all a couple months ago and now is… I do think he “cold calls” quite a bit though.
