      Might not get noticed by many outside of me (since I suggested it earlier this year pretty much only because Meyer was on my fantasy team), but Olaf split medley relay duties between Meyer and Kukla. Say what you will, but I think it was a smart move to get both swimmers at nationals.

      I realize nobody cares about this outside of maybe me and Adam Meyer’s family.

      I agree, great decision by the Hauckers.

      Absolutely – Adam is a quality backstroker and the rest of that medley is so strong that there was no real danger of not winning even with the replacement. This means that he has to swim the first leg of the relay at Nationals at least in prelims, correct?

      No.
      There are many examples of a swimmer being on a relay that made nationals, then being taken off and replaced by a faster swimmer. The first example that comes to my mind was from GAC a couple years ago. Jonah Winter was on a 200 Med that got in, but was replaced by Will Sutor at Nationals.

      In order for the NCAA to pay for said swimmer to be at the meet, they must swim him at least once on the relay. They can be replaced after swimming it once, but must swim it, otherwise the school must fund that swimmer’s trip.

      Is it any different because they got an A cut? Adam also has a B-cut in the back, does that make any differnce?

      Only if it gets invited (which is 100 back won’t, who knows what he can do in the 200 back tonight). As a relay swimmer, he’ll have to swim in the relay he was brought on once and can swim any B cuts he has. It’s all very confusing.
