Re: Dressel with a 17.73 split this morning in 200MR prelims...

I've been shocked at the reaction times. Florida's 200 Free Relay starts looked SOOO good on camera/the live feed. I thought they would have some -.03 or .00 start times, so to see they were .08, .24 and .15 I was shocked. I can only imagine now how much I raised the blood pressure of my coaches by doing .03 or .05s all the time. Point is, they had great relay starts, a Dressel is no exception. Now, he has a great start to begin with, and with the fin now, a relay start for him does not help him as much as it helps others, which is probably why he led off last night. I really want to see a 17.5 though. That would be more exciting than seeing a 16 beat a 1 in the basketball, or Butler beating UNCheat tonight.
