3.24: Stanford Men's swim team -- 3 decades of dominance
Skip Kenney has led the Cardinal men's swim team to 30 straight Pac-10 titles.
Yeah Stanford University has a long standing tradition of maintaining high standard in the classroom and on the field of play the football team is defending Orange Bowl champions and the women's team has won the pac ten title over the last. After eleven years with what's happening in the pool that's making blacks. The men claimed he had one theory that's right. Thirty straight conference title led by man and you probably never heard that if after five Summers as well. While you're gonna go with thirty mussina in a way there's no way. Keep kidding it's been amend them connected scampered for the past 32 years his -- is unparalleled. Thirty straight conference title seven national title and countless Olympian to agree to pull on the farm they can -- the first to give the credit solely to with -- -- and we've had an amazing athlete. So many championships they've come here and it and they. Accepted the challenge. And nobody wants to be on that team that ends a streak and some days it's gonna happen and I would have suspected -- happened long ago it just. -- Huge amount -- -- -- -- players do with the good program and build -- here at the level that -- maintain such as they went -- secret you ask. Kenny and his swimmers attribute his success in the bullpen the concept -- A message has remained the same. For years where we work on our hardest just to take an individual sport and make it a team sport and so are you say to them do it for your writings your three birdies. You know taken taken off of yourself. And swimming as hard as you possibly can as best you can. For your birdies. Team is really the core focus. But what we do it that you can't break and -- assist our current leader driving us to our best that's our focus really does. It's not necessarily focused on -- -- winning ultimately that's the goal but it's achieving our personal. There's a way that he can motivate people maybe it was because he had that that thousand yards there because he's got that from his Marines and I careers. But it's just so. So easy to get motivated to sit through. To -- -- meet his expectations in the team's expectations that we all this bad right off of his enthusiasm. His legacy is unmatched leaving it nearly impossible for someone to follow his footsteps to what happens when you get the -- to call -- quit. I don't know how to answer that question I don't know how could give -- note that the great question. Those would be some big shoes to fill. We asked Kenny if he had planned to retire any time fan and he said no way at Stanford has never finished lower than fourth that 1980 went. Their last national title came in 1998. Number two ranked cardinal looked and that would -- -- this weekend -- and the eighth and Minnesota then you got Comcast sports net.
