Both my boys are year 'round swimmers, the oldest wants to swim at Texas.  We're planning on sending them to the Longhorn Swim Camp next summer so that they get to see/meet Eddie and to get some coaching from a pretty amazing coaching staff...Eddie, Carol Capitani, former UT swimmers, Gold Medalists and other Olympians (including Ian Crocker), NCAA champions and the list goes on.  We'd have sent them this year but the camps fill up fast!!

One of my dear college friends swam for him. The guy loves him. I mean truly loves the man. I met him a couple of occasions and he is super down to earth. 

I was a track athlete so I really respect the athletes in the non revenue sports. Swimmers training is tough stuff. Props to your boys!

Is this April Fools a day late? I've never heard of this happening before.

Some schools don’t hold a spring game. It’s not unprecedented. The practices are for the players and coaches, the game for fans and PR.

Yeah, but it's not a good look to recruits to have to cancel the spring game. Walk-ons should be available to fill gaps due to injury.

Disc problem? This is not good at all.

I've had a herniated disc before. Its quite common. I chose to avoid the medical route and went the chiropractor route instead.

Within two months I was back to normal. Exercising some common sense practices, I've been able to stay that way.

Not all injuries are the same, however. His disc may be more damaged than mine was, thus more time to recover. He obviously injured a disc near or in the neck area, which mine was not.
