      Although i have no affiliation to the UAA, this is awesome and i will be viewing, without a doubt. I hope this leads to more meets being broadcast, without charge, online. I would love it if NCAAs were broadcast, but i would guess the NCAA would have a say against that, for no real reason.

      This is fantastic. My initial question would be who is fronting this cost, but i don’t suppose it’s cost will affect the teams in the UAA directly. The UAA is a talented conference, and it’ll be exciting to be able to watch Emory, Washington University, and NYU duke it out.

      Awesome. I love whenever I can watch live swimming video, either online or on TV. Summer nationals in Irvine had this last year, and I loved it. The quality was excellent and the commentary was good as well. Hopefully the video quality of this will be as good.

      This is great! Why go to Vegas when you can go to Cleveland and see the UAA’s live?

      I might be the only one trying, but this isn’t working for me, anyone else?

      It’s not working for me either. I saw it said somewhere that they would be broadcasting only the finals, but then it said somewhere at the sight that broadcast would begin at 10 a.m. I don’t really know what the deal is.

      I think the “live stats” tab is working and giving the printed results.

    • #34015

      It’s up, but the cameraman doesn’t know a lick of swimming. He leaves the camera motionless, thereby missing all the action at the walls inc. takeovers, and then doesn’t show the times afterwards. I called the company to see if they could change things.

      THEY HAVE! He now shows times afterwards. The power of a phone call…

      Did Rodjam really split a 24.64? and they cant find a backstroker to split faster than a 26.9?

      26.94 24.64 24.46 20.37

      no that was an electronic error
      Swartz has already been 25.7 this year
      by watch he was about ~25.9 not 26.9, so Rodjom only went ~25.6

      any dissatisfied with the commentary or lack there of?

    • #34020

      What happened to Dukes from CMU? He’s listed in the Top Times for backstroke but doesn’t appear to be at the meet.

      Carnegie Mellon another dq in the 2 medley last night. IT looks they would have been about 1:33 high.

      The Carnegie Flyer had himself a huge meet 49.8 in the 100 and 1:49.7 in the 200. Pretty awesome

    • #34024

      Yea, I’d like to give big ups to my man Dave for a great weekend. A couple really nice swims from a classy guy. That 1:49 was just smoking. Look out for him in Houston. I’d like to say no one saw this coming, but this guy has gotten better every year and works really hard to get there. So congrats on a UAA record and good luck in TX.
