I think it was more that Holloway didn't want to get beat by DeSorbo

I thought there was some bad blood there of sorts when he left for UVA.

Also, I noticed that they did some improvements to their pool. I remember there being HUGE walls at the opposite end of the pool with a backstroke starting/grab bar built in, that are now gone. Of course, I haven't seen that pool in over 20 years, so that could have been something done a long time ago. Still a dungeon and horribly crappy pool. Also, for them to allow diving (even warm ups) during the meet is a BS tactic with those waves hitting the visitors lane 8. I always thought home team takes the even lanes also. Either way, it didn't make a difference in the overall score, but still...

Finally, I am amazed that they can recruit as well as they do with the facilities that they have. They are below mediocre at best. Maybe thats why they have so many foreigners... guys who never see the place before actually committing.
