I don't know antything about synchronized swimming, but does our squad have a chance this season? Do we even have a team? Can they even hold their breath long enough to compete in the Big Ten?
Im tire of football talk, i need this bye week.
you're just in time. the swimming and diving team have their first meet this saturday, against notre dame. but if we lose, i insist that dave brandon look for a coach who can bring us a championship NOW.
I think the number of future Olympians on the team and considering Club Wolverine is one of the best Olympic training programs in the world, teasing this team just seems kinda dumb.
Maybe im just hungover.
The last recruiting class was fantastic, but I'm not sure about the system the coach runs, it seems limbs are just flailing everywhere. It is a jumbled mess, and I for one am just sickened and Bi-furious about the whole thing.
Ok, I'm done.
I don't know about synchronized swimming, but I hear our Equestrian team has national title hopes. Have you SEEN how high our horses jump??
It's not the coach's fault. All our traditional pipelines have been drying up.
This is what I always think about when I hear about that sport
One of the classic SNL skits of all time. True men of genius.
...classic bit. The guys from the BTN did their own version:
Who "synchronizes" with the one on the far right?
(And there's definitely some cuteness on that team).
100%, but now I don't think the coach's schemes will ever work in the Big Ten... it's too cold up here for that crap. It's time for a new coach!
***Insert insanely overused Futurerama "I see what you did there" picture in 5,4,3,2,1...
haha we did this last year for greek week
My wife was on the U of M Synchro team from like 2002-2004, and would like to report that: no, they have no chance.
Although that's due more to the team being a club team rather than an NCAA sport, and they have to play teams like Stanford.
Related to this, she had a meet at OSU one year, and the OSU synchro girls made the visiting U of M girls some brownies and cookies, which the U of M girls merrily ate. She questioned my revulsion and suspicion regarding the brownies, saying that girls aren't silly about the rivalry...but I feel like I got the last laugh. She had to have her gall bladder removed five years later.
Coincidence? Absolutely not.
