    Coach Reese for President, oh wait that would leave us without a coach!

    Hook 'Em and congratulations to the 2015 NCAA Men's Swimming & Diving National Champions - The University of Texas!!!

    Not sure if you can call it a dynasty, but 11 National Championships at least makes UT the biggest of the blue bloods among college swimming programs.

    "University of Texas head coach Eddie Reese has set the standard for a lifetime: 11 NCAA team titles, 11 NCAA runner-up finishes, 29 top-3 NCAA finishes, and 36 straight top 10s. Reese has also served as Olympic coach for three of the most successful Games: 1992, 2004 and 2008. The accomplishments could be listed all day and still not do his gold-standard career justice, so we’ll let him tell us how things are going in this week’s 20 Question Tuesday."

    Good grief. That is insane. Texas has come in 1st or 2nd in the nation 22 times! And in the top three 29 times. Say what you want about Tennessee or UCONN in women's basketball. That is absolutely incredible.

    Is it 11 titles or 12? Their instagram post and texassports.com both say 12.
