      Ok, there are five individual defending national champions returning next year, Curtis, Courage, Dunn, Mitchell and Scott. Based on this years NCAA performance and margin of victory which of these predators is the last one you want in your final. Did anyone else show they could move up into this category?

      And Westby (200 IM), Whitbeck (50), Rob Dohring (1 meter), and Jon Dohring (3 meter)

      I’m not sure what you’re asking – would I want them on my team or would I not want to swim against them?

      oops, my booboo. Add Westby and Whitbeck to the list as they both showed that instinct to close, and the question is which is the one you do not want to race against. But the discussion could be just as easily turned to which one would you prefer to be on your team.

      well that is a tough question because of the guys on that list only 2 of them Courage and Dunn had won individual nat championships before this year, so based on the fact that they have now won more then one championship I would pick them as the guys I would least like to race against. That is a very long run on sentence but who cares.

      I know Courage hasn’t lost in the 100 for over two years now, but I was definitely more blown away/intimidated by Dunn’s mile than anything. He just went so fast for so long I can’t imagine anyone in D3 wanting to race him.

      Courage is incredibly powerful and moves a ton of water. With Dunn you have to go from start to finish, there are no off 50’s. Curtis has tremendous back half speed, just look at the splits. But Mitchell had the largest percentage margin of victory at 1.6% faster than second. Courgae had the second largest margin at 1.26% and given his streak, he gets the edge.

      Yes, Mitchell did have a large percentage over 2nd in that race, but Thomas was disqualified in that race and would have been right with Mitchell had it not been for a minor mistake :). I would think that will be a very close race next year.

      well if we are giving out the award for the most improved swimmer its no question Mitchell, but I think Dunn or Courage would be the toughest to race.

      most improved…jon dohring, who did not qualify until this year, and won both boards….for this reason i feel like he has a great shot to repeat next year, probably by a larger margin, as he continues to improve.

      Jon didn’t win both – his brother won 1 meter. He was diver of the meet though – he beat his brother by more than his brother beat him. Assuming he wasn’t worthy of qualifying last year then, yes, he would be most improved. However, I think he got shafted last year.
