      I wonder if the conference roster has already been picked and Tyler is on a week of taper with SP next week being his taper meet. Sometimes Jon will leave a few spots open and make them prove themselves to make the roster. However, if this is the case and he makes any of the relays that could go to nat’ls then that would be a lot a taper time.

      It seems strange to me that there was a question at all of whether or not Wakefield was going to make the conference line up. The kid swam on three top 8 relays at Nationals last year. He had a great meet but so did a lot of the Gustavus swimmers. It’s about that time of the season when morning practices are dropped and yardage decreases. So instead of being tapered earlier to make the team, maybe he was just benefiting from the change in intensity.

      The sprinters seemed to look the best (considering that it looked like Carlson swam some guys in “off” events).

      At first I thought Wakefield might be a little rested, but then I saw that Hagemeyer dropped a second in the 100 too.

      I’m most impressed with Ted Marschall though. He did a sub 2:10 in the 200 Breast. I wonder if he switches from the mile at conference this year to the 200 Breast. He’s like a second off the B cut and he’d have an outside shot at an A cut I think. Plus that would probably help GAC if he knocked a few of the dominant Ole breaststrokers down a spot.

      I just picked up 34 points in my fantasy league.

      I think there is no question ted will swim the 2 breast. he has a shot at winning it (wareham will be tough, but its a shot), while in the mile, he is shooting for third at best (behind hanson and davis)…what do the rest of you think?

      Didn’t Marschall switch from the 1650 to the 200 breast last year at nationals? I agree, I think Marchall goes for the 200 breast. Hanson beat him soundly last year, and with Davis in the mix, he has a betters shot of winning three events (he has a tough task with Westby in the 200 IM) if he goes the 200 breast.

      I would also have to agree. It would seem that he has a better chance of taking first or at least second in the 2 breast. He is second, to Sky, right now in the mile, but Hanson has never had great swims in that event in season, and with his 2:09 this weekend he has the fastest time in the breast I believe. Both those would seem to point him towards the breast.

    • #34125

      Yeah, I guess he did swim the 200 Breast at nationals (2:07.11). I wonder why he swam the mile at conference last year? He probably would have won the Breast.

      Its a good question. He may have thought he had a better chance to win the mile, thought he could have placed higher at Nationals in the Mile, or just considered himself more of a miler? Hard to tell without asking him or his coach. As someone just pointed out, Hanson Mile times tapered have been amazing, but in season have not been as impressive. If looking at the results, he may have had a faster Mile time and thought he could have taken it?

      Is the mile seeded by best time in the mile or the 1000? I can’t remember.

      it’s seeded by mile times. or, at least it was last year.

      If Jon is doing things they way he has in past years, he’s made a first round selection of 16 guys and 3 divers, leaving one spot to be chosen after the Stevens Point dual, which is this Saturday.

      Wakefield does appear to be rested. If he didn’t make the roster originally, as some seem to think he hasn’t, he would be on a week or so of taper when they swam against Carleton.

      Also, if anyone has done the research on Hagemeyer, which I have ’cause I get bored at work, they’ll be quick to note that the last time Hagemeyer swam like an age group swimmer all season he ripped off a 50.92 and 50.61 100 backstroke at conference along with a 45.5 100 free. I’m hoping he’ll surprise all once again before he graduates and put on an amazing showing reminiscent of his first two years. I’ll never forget what a 19.7 relay split looks like.

      Yeah I am interested to see how he does. 20.4 as a freshmen is just flying, and maybe that is the best he will ever do, but he is a senior and weird things happen when you start to realize that this may be the last time you are going to be competing at this level. I could see 20.6 maybe. Who knows

      Ask Ted next time you see him, you might be surprised about why he ended up in the mile rather than the 200 Breast…

    • #34131

      I never see Ted at the Reub, so please fill me in. My guess is that he swam the mile for one of the following reasons:

      1. Hanson made out with his GF.
      B. Hanson called him fat.
      III. Someone triple-dog dared him.

    • #34132

      I am also curious as to the Reason Marshall did the Mile. Since I have never meet the Stud from Carelton, it would be great for someone to share!

      or he forgot to scratch it, and it is before the 200 breast, so he had to do it. No supporting evidence, just a guess.

      I would agree that it is most likely do forgetting to scratch out of it.

      I’m not familiar with the MIAC Championships, but isn’t the 1650 usually listed before the 200 breast but competed after it? In the NCAA rules it says whichever you compete first is the one that counts. If he had forgotten to scratch something he would have swum the breast and been taken out of the mile automatically. Does the MIAC do it differently?

      Or maybe it was his coach that forgot to scratch him out of it. 😉

      Actually, N Dynamite is right. If there’s a situation where someone ends up entered in too many events, the order of events in prelims determines which event is first. So unless the MIAC follows an unconventional schedule, the 200 breast is technically considered to be before the mile.

      frizzy, you seem to be in the know. How about an answer?

      To my knowledge the MIAC follows a typical schedule.

      Last time I saw him at the Reub, which is when I asked him about his entry in the mile last year, he told me that if people want to know, they need to ask him. Sorry.
      However, the assertion that the 200 breast is before the mile is correct. If Ted failed to get scratched out of an event, he would have swum the 200 breast, thereby indicating some intent.

      Is Ted Marshall the Terrel Owens of DIII swimming?

      I think frizzy is just pretending to know the answer, just to make himself feel important, haha 😆
