      Men’s or Women’s
      How many National recs. go down and by whom? Time?

      Can the 50 be won in sub-20? Can we see a sub 1:49 in the women’s 200? Men’s 2free?

      We should see a sub-1:49 in the women’s 200 free, seeing as that is Weima’s best time and 1.5 seconds slower than Preyss’s best. I think all male competitors in that race will break 1:49 as well. 🙂

      5 on the women’s side, 0 on the men’s, with Denison’s 800 free relay and Eric Dunn in the mile being closest.

      This may be way out of left field, but does Millen have any shot in the 400 IM? Or Curtis in the 200 Free?

    • #36238

      Curtis’s 1:37.9 at midseason would make me think he had a chance, but didn’t he follow it up with a 1:39.? I haven’t followed him closely enough to see if he is a consistent racer, but I suppose with three chances at nationals the opportunity is there to swim a 1:36 one of those times.

      Profound, I know.

      well technically everyone has a shot, but i dont think either will. is millen the transfer people were talking about earlier in the year? either way, i’m assuming williams was tapered for conference b/c pretty much no one had cuts good enough to make nats and i dont see him dropping 4.5 more seconds. i also dont see curtis going 1:36.9 on the second day of competition (and likely at night b/c he prob won’t be all out in the morning).

      I agree I do not think any men’s records go down. The 800 fr will be very close. I think Curtis probably goes about 1:37.5 for the win. I think Millen probably will be in the 3:56 range, and I would think that Peterson would be right there with him. On the women’s side I see a whole bunch of records going down in what will probably be one of the fastest women’s meet in history.

      ANd again I have said this a million times but in my opinion the 200 free record is still held by Mulvihill at 1:36.6

    • #36242

      denisons 800 free relay is the best shot in my opinion.. look for drake in the breaststrokes.. especially the 200 breast.. he could make a run at that record

      but there will be alot of changed on the top 10 list which is on this website.. how accurate is that list by the way.. i could name a couple times that were missing off the top of my head..

      Women (will get to men next week)

      Probable
      500 Free
      200 Back
      200 Fly
      200 Medley Relay
      800 Free Relay

      Thinkable
      100 Free
      100 Fly
      100 Back
      200 IM
      400 IM

      I admit this looks pretty silly but the women’s field, except for breaststroke, is exceptionally loaded at the top, historically speaking.

      If there is an over/under for women’s record at 5 then I’ll take the over.

      Hope the pool at Univ of Houston is fast.

    • #36244

      I think Curtis will capture both the 200 free and 800 records.

      At least 7 records will be broken by the women in these 9 events. For giggles, I included times. Note, I did not specify the winning swimmer in the individual events. Kenyon, as should be evident from the women’s relay threads, is my choice in the two relays

      500 Free 4:54.80
      200 IM 2:02.89
      200 Medley 1:43.15
      400 IM 4:22.70
      200 Free 1:48.20*
      100 Back 54.78*
      800 Free 7:28.43**
      200 Back 1:57.54*
      200 Fly 1:58.98*

      *Safe bets
      **Safest bet

      If I’m right, on this Friday we could see 5 new records.

      That would be great if you got one “retard free” next time for your sake.

      4:54 in the 500 would be a great swim by anyone. I am interested in who is supposed to do that. I am assuming the girl from Emory?

    • #36250

      Watch out for Kono and Hawk from Wash U. Also, Arad hasn’t really rested since November, so she coulod have an explosive swim.

      Presumably Psaris or Arad…I would think the two Was U swimmers would be a bit of a long shot.

      5:00. unrested from Kono at conference is pretty fast. I’m looking to see a 4:56 out of her, but I wouldn’t be surprised with a 4:55.

      Well 5:00 this morning puts her in the big heat, so she will have a shot to go that fast. I could see 4:57 or so.

      So far national women’s records have been set in 5 events:

      200 IM
      400 IM
      100 back[3 different swims– each faster]
      800 Free Relay [by 4 teams]
      200 Back [in prelims]

      Will Sasser lower her back record tonight?

      Will the 200 fly go under 2:00? Ross or Kephart or can Psaris catch fire?

      Yes, I think Sasser will break it again and seal swimmer of the meet in my opinion even if Ornstein wins the 200 breast for three titles. Sasser’s relay performances have been equally outstanding.

      Don’t think Psaris is having the quite of meet for a sub 2:00…Ross or Kephart could if they are really fired up. Psaris will probably own the record, just not this year.

      So as the level of traffic on the site has died over the last 48 hours (probably due to the Fantasy Draft – and rightfully so after reading the rules……..) I wanted to put this back out there – which records do we see falling on the Men’s side this year?

      None.

    • #36260

      If I were to bet I would agree with Cheadle.

      But I think the 50 free has a chance (Courage) of going down and obviously the 8 free relay is also a possibility. I would put both of those at about 30%.

      I don’t think any other records even have a 10% chance.

      We really really agree, because I agree that those are the only records with any reasonable chance. I would put the 200 free meet record at better than 10%, though.

      You know, thinking this over, there is one more that has a shot.

      Eric Dunn in the 400 IM.

      Many of you are unaware, but Dunn went 4:00 last year.

      UNDER 4:00

    • #36264

      Am I missing something? There are two other guys who have gone under 4:00 in the 4 IM this year but not really near the record. Well, I guess 4 seconds is a reasonable drop in a race that long but I still don’t see that one coming down.

      20.2 to 19.9 is a pretty significant drop. I am guessing that record is safe

      Yeah but he also went from a 20.6 last year to a 20.2. And… he just scares me a little in general. Super nice guy, but standing next to him makes me feel a bit like Little Mac, or even Dennis Kucinich.

    • #36267

      No he is great no doubt about it, but if we base it on last year his 50 was about the same as his conf time. I know there will be people that say he was not rested at conf and blah blah blah, but the fact is that he dropped from 20.6 to 20.2 so He was rested a little. I think he wins the 50 in about the same time 20.2 and probably goes about 44.3 in the 100.

      I’m pretty sure he was well-rested for PACs. That said, I have no idea whether he’ll get under 19.90 in the open 50 or not. In a relay split? More likely.

    • #36269

      How about Dunn in the 1650? His time last year was one of the fastest ever swum in DIII. Might he drop enough time?

    • #36270
      swim5599
      Member

      Well I think he was about 15:50 in December last year and then proceeded to drop almost 30 seconds at nats, so that being said I would think he might have a shot. More than likely it might happen next year.

    • #36271

      Courage split 19.6 last year, so I am sure he will be under 19.9 relay split, but not flat start

      If he does, that’ll be two records for him this year. He’s going after the 400 IM record as well (he was under 4:00 last year). Do we have an early favorite for swimmer of the meet?

      Well I am going to take a stand and say at least three – just for fun. In fact I as I can’t bet….. NCAA rules, I am donating 50 to D3 Swimming….. I am not sure exactly what three will go down, but I have a really hard time believing that no records will be broken. Look at the women’s meet – they far surpassed what anyone whose post I read expected of them.

Surprisingly, Kenyon was not among the record-breakers. I had them as a lock for the 800 Free record. I was also surprised that the 200 Fly record was not broken. I was convinced that Psaris or Kephart would go under 2 minutes.

      I don’t see the men breaking more than one record this week.

      I don’t see Byers swimming the 800 FR, so I don’t see them breaking the record.

      Do you think Denison is sitting Byers for the 800 fr? If he is not on it they do not break the record. I have not looked at the psyche sheet all that closely, but is he entered in 3 individuals or no?
