One more reason to hate UT




The Southeastern Swimming Championships are being held at UT this weekend.  This is Club swimming and although there is no technical age limit, it is traditionally an age group program (grammar school through high school ages).   
The kids swim preliminaries in the morning and then the top 8 for 14 & under and top 16 for "senior," 15 and up get to come back in the evening to swim finals.  When prelim and finals meets are held at other college natatoriums, some of the college swimmers compete in the morning (they need a particular time standard for a meet with minimum time standards) but they scratch for finals, to leave the final competition for the age groupers.  At least that is how it has been at Bama, Auburn and LSU.  Not the hillbillies.  They are amazingly beating out the 15 year olds in the morning and back they come in the evenings.  There are families who have driven 450 miles for a 4 day meet, in hopes of seeing their high schooler swim in finals and these piggy college students are hogging up half the spaces.  POOR SPORTS!!!  The parents are about ready to start booing. 

FanPosts are just that; posts created by the fans. They are in no way indicative of the opinions of SBN and the authors of Roll Bama Roll.
