      WELL THEN SPECIFY THAT AND STOP GETTING SO ALL CAPS ON US.

      Butterflies: Leigh Psaris (freshman)…if she swims
      Backstrokes: Pasternak/Nordbrock…if they swim/rest
      Breaststrokes: Probably Flader if she swims, maybe Boettger
      Relays: Emory…
      That leaves the freestyles and right now I would say they’re pretty up for grabs. Long story short, Emory wins by a crapload.

      Why does everyone kiss Wash U’s ass?

      There were claims that the guys were getting this unbelievable recruiting class (for the second year in a row)… and quite honestly its not that impressive (again).

      And now the women are automatically coming in second. Didn’t they come in 3rd last year? Take a look at NYU’s women’s roster… looks like they have a ton of new talented swimmer.

      When people say Wash U women will come in second at UAA’s, I think they mean to say that they will be the second-best team at the meet, regardless of what place they finish. That is to say, they will have qualified their relays and many individuals at midseason and won’t rest for conference, so even great unrested swims may not be able to beat rested swims from NYU. NYU will not beat the Wash U women at nationals, although they have a great shot at conference if they rest.

      Also, Wash U men’s freshmen class last year was not bad, and brought a lot of depth to the team. Look for Leckey and Beattie to do well individually at nationals this year.

      I don’t think we necessarily kiss their ass, but they have had some really talented swimmers both guys and girls this past year, so they get talked about a lot, and lets be honest the performed well at this past years national meet

      Give Wash U their Props if they deserve it. Why do you say NYU women can not beat Wash U at Nationals?

    • #30533

      We haven’t seen any concrete info on this site about what NYU has/brought in. Somebody put something up to prove that they can beat a Wash U. women’s squad who this year on paper is better than they were last year. I would almost go so far as to say that Wash U’s women will be disappointed if they don’t get Wood as a team this year. Nordbrock (hopefully) won’t be swimming with Mono again, Tina Deneweth is one year farther removed from her back surgery, the 2 sophomore girls (Jenkins and Kono) will be a year more experienced, and on paper Marin Hawk more than replaces Jenny Scott in the short freestyles.

      good coaching? two national championship rings last year? two top 6 teams at nationals last year and top 10 the past three? when and what were the claims for a ridiculous recruiting class?

      I have an idea, it’s brilliant actually, how about the people that think NYU is way too underrated and Wash U is overrated give actually evidence of this being the case, therefore somewhat proving their point. While it’s all pre-season, so stats can be stretched or exaggerated, it’d be great if we could see how NYU will score the points at NCAAs and UAAs and then have discussion based on those predictions, instead of just blurting out that NYU could beat Wash U at NCAAs.

    • #30536

      Ya know…NYU posted their roster.

      Below is what I could find on them.

      Bright: 25.0/54.52
      Cushman: 5:27/19:01
      Dean: 5:25
      Ham: 1:01/2:12 fly 2:17/4:41 IM
      McCaffrey: 1:58.01/5:13/10:43/17:45
      Mueller: 1:08.5/2:28 br
      Willett: 1:01 fly 2:18 IM

      Those were the noteworthy. It’s a huge class, like 17 froshies. I didn’t see anything noteworthy from a few others and didn’t look very hard to find something on the ones I didn’t see anything for at first.

      Will the loss due to graduation of White and Hinz effect Emory’s dominance of the UAA and NCAA? Will their departure help NYU or Wash U?

      Neither as it sounds like they didn’t just reload, they upgraded with their recruiting class. Calling individual events in the UAA is tough bc there are a lot of folks who don’t rest or shave from a lot of teams. That plus the depth of the conference makes it tough to predict early. For example, Tim Newton is the defending NCAA champ in the 500, but not the defending UAA champ.

      Some people to help with depth and whatnot, but no stud factor to speak of.

      CAN WOMEN BE SWIMMING STUDS? HOW ABOUT A DIFFERENT NAME? ANY SUGGESTIONS?

      jeez sluggo, you really are a broken record aren’t you. first you don’t like that we don’t talk enough about women, then you don’t like how we compliment them. stud is meant as a term of endearment and respect, if you don’t get off your soapbox, nobody is going to play with you anymore.

      how bout studette?

      see we have all these terms used to describe guys. you can be called a horse or a hoss… i dont think either of those terms are better than stud. i agree with frogman. just shut up, stop whining, and either come up with something better on your own, or adapt to how WE do things and stop complaining. you have 9 posts, dont tell us what to do until you’re at least a “regular” here.

      I like studette, or perhaps we could say “smokin”, this would refer to her ability to “smoke” her competition, but the girls would also like it since it is a term commonly refering to a woman’s looks. I think the only way to work it as a noun though is smoker, which really doesn’t work.

      I didn’t see anything on the NYU roster that would indicate instant NCAA success. Since Wash U has the track record and returns more (to my knowledge) you have to give them the edge.

      Treat,

      Thanks for the explanation of Stud. I especially like the analogy of horse/hoss. Should we call you Trigger or Silver?
