      The Lords are in jeopardy of being dethroned as perennial national champions in the next 3 years?

      Fiction… Are you kidding me? Look at the facts, 27 straight with no signs of slowing down. Even with the numbers they lose in a “down year”, they have more returning points than the next best team PLUS the recruits they gain from their new facility… Coach Steen gets them back on the right track of domination sweetheart

      Rece, I have to agree with Lee. This is absolute fiction. Kenyon is too much. One of the things that I expect to see from the freshman this year is superior recruiting. Kenyon WILL have the best freshman class in the country next year. AND Steen has shown that he improves his swimmers as well if not better than any coach in the country. Not to mention, in years past when Kenyon maybe has been in jeopardy you have seen some remarkable things come from their swimmers. There is too much pride and honor, I just don’t see it happening, at least not in the next 3 years.

      absolute fiction I would never bet against them. Everyone me included thought they would lose a whole bunch of relays this past year and they lost one. They are amazing and Steen is the greatest. They repeat as the champs

      Shouldn’t Chris Fowler be the one asking these questions?

      A great question from our fearless moderator. I actually think any anchor on ESPN can ask the questions and I think any number of people can respond to it. As the college football season goes, I would suspect you probably will get a large dose of Chris Fowler though.

      Kenyon’s string of championships is safe. The way I figure it (for whatever it’s worth), in order for someone to actually beat Kenyon… two things would need to happen. 1) You would have to out recruit them 3 times in 4 years… and 2) The coach that has done 1. would also need to improve his/her swimmers by as much as Steen is improving his swimmers over the same time period.

      When was the last time a team brought in a better group of freshman than Steen twice in 5 years? Let alone 3 out of 4.
