2018 Men’s Final Scores:

  1. Indiana 1658
  2. Michigan 1617.5
  3. Ohio State 1300.5
  4. Purdue 735.5
  5. Minnesota 712.5
  6. Wisconsin 696.5
  7. Iowa 614.5
  8. Penn State 389.5
  9. Northwestern 260
  10. Michigan State 247.5

We’re going to go ahead and address the elephant in the room, this Indiana Men’s team is the team to beat. No doubt about it. Coming in at a solid second, much like last year, is the Michigan Wolverines, and again in a strong third the Buckeyes. The depth of the Hoosier men is arguably unrivaled in the NCAA this year with an obscene amount of guys dipping below 20-seconds in the 50 free for one. Zach Apple should stand out for them picking up points in the sprint to mid-distance freestyle’s with a ton of backup as well. Michigan is solid across the board with some standouts in the stroke 200s and IM events.

Night one at the 2019 Big 10 Championships is going to be filled with fireworks. We open up with the 200 Medley Relay and 800 freestyle relay which in my opinion could rival the SEC night one we just saw which included some of the deepest relay heats we’ve ever seen. Along with the first night we’ve got a lot of high-quality talent in the pool this weekend so keep your record books close and don’t sleep on any of these heats.

How To Get The Most Out Of Winter Training

Mental fortitude and toughness are often excuses used to allow coaches to berate athletes to breaking points during this time of year. Here, we go through how to get the most out of this portion of the year, why a good portion of coaches are shifting their training, and what you should do if you think the training could leave you injured.

Way Too Early Olympic Men's 50m Freestyle Preview

First, let’s get it out of the way...Dressel is the favorite. After his earth-shattering performance in the final NCAA meet of his college career, Dressel has been at the front of the swimming community’s mind. The questions remain though: can he hold on without a second wall? Can he go under 21.00 and break the WR? Can anyone challenge him?
