    There is no way Texas is even remotely rested for this meet. Besides Tate Jackson, who seems to be the exception, it seems like Haas, Schooling, and the rest of the crew are almost “cruising” their races.

    This was not the Texas women’s 16th straight tittle. The Texas A&M women won in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012 before they moved to the SEC.

    no one cares about a 39th title when you have only 3 teams competing…seriously a broken clock is right twice a day…let them compete against some real teams and see what happens and blah blah 3 ncaa’s in a row…not a record either..just saying

    Fuzzy Math?

    Congratulations to them on excellent swimming, but somebody’s math is off or they need to rewrite the headline. The University of Texas was in the Southwest Conference up till 1996, 22 years ago. First Big 12 title was in 1997. Now, if the SWC titles are added in then it comes to 39. So a change in numbers or the way headline is written is necessary.
