This article focuses on how swimming world magazine analyzes the NCAA Division I men's championship. Everyone seems to think that Georgia is the prohibitive favorite at the year's women's NCAA Division I Championships, but three-time champion Auburn as well as Arizona might have something to say about that. A defining moment in NCAA swimming history occurred the night before the 1974 Men's NCAA Division I Championships when USC coach Peter Daland hosted a team dinner. Swimmer Michael Phelps already chosen as Swimming World Magazine's 2004 World Swimmer of the Year and USA Swimming's Swimmer of the Year, has now been selected as Athlete of the Year by Sports Illustrated for Kids-the first swimmer so honored, he was selected as the USOC's SportsMan of the Year, becoming only the fourth swimmer to earn the honor. INSET: IN THE MIX.
