PHOENIX- As Texas swimmers dominated the competition at NCAA’s by winning seven events and setting records en route to a 129-point margin of victory, Coach Eddie Reese tied Ohio State’s Mike Peppe (1931-63) as the winningest NCAA Division I coaches (11 titles) in men’s swimming and diving and making it look almost too easy for Texas.
Any expectations of a tight race for the team title at the 2015 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championship vanished as soon as the first championship final entered the pool. The Texas Longhorns blew everyone else out of the water and cruised home to the team title with 528 points. The “Horns” shined across the board, especially in the 100 fly, where they placed a record six swimmers in the top eight and swept the top four spots in the final.

by Rod Havriluk
A common swimming technique misconception is that a butterflyer should not change the angle at the neck to breathe. Typical advice is to maintain the non-breathing neck angle when breathing to avoid submerging the hips and increasing resistance. However, swimmers can actually minimize resistance by using the full range of motion of the neck to breathe.
