7th-15th scoring based on finals seeding

Places 1st-6th are set in stone (Texas-Cal-Florida-Georgia-Indiana-Louisville) so here’s the battle for the best of the rest (includes diving prelims, mile seeding, all other swimming events seeding, and relay seeding). swimswam never gives an overall scoring estimate with diving prelims, mile seeding, and relay seeding so it’s kind of pointless the way they analyze their predictions with just the other swimming events. (One of many issues with that site, IMO). Obviously a lot can change with the mile/diving/relays but it’s at least nice to see how this is predicted to play out and to see how it could change once the meet is over.

**I obviously have way too much time on my hands today.

7. NCS (179) **currently 8th
8. Ohio St (173) **currently 9th
9. Tx A&M (151) **currently 7th
10. UVA (144) **currently 10th
11. Mich (127) **currently 11th
12. VT (115.5) **currently 14th
13. Alabama (98) **currently 16th
14. Mizzou (87) **currently 12th
15. Ariz (85) **currently 13th

Even with Purdue and Miami having divers and Purdue having a 13th seed relay and one A final swimmer, they are still seeded to finish outside the top 15. Seems we are comfortably in 10th place. UVA has a legit shot to outscore Texas A&M for 9th though, even with their star Shaine Casas swimming well. Their relay is seeded 16th and ours is seeded 11th but every relay of ours has improved tremendously from seed time this meet. Pretty sure Michigan won’t catch us in the team race. If NC State underperforms in the mile and relay we could possibly catch them if we swim lights out. It will be difficult to outperform Ohio St with their guaranteed A final diving points.

UVA will be swimming in heat 3 of 5 in the relay and their heat includes Ohio St, Michigan, and VT.
