going to work as hard on aggres- said. "I was looking at our sche-

several Olympic Swimmers.

against faster people as opposed
to slower people.
Although the two teams are
competitive rivals, Bentz said. SMU

relationship." The Mustangs plan
to come to Lincoln for the Husker's

"I really don't know much about
TCU," Bentz said. "Our objective
of swimming against them is to
have another meet scheduled for
our Texas trip."
The long road trips are a tough
adjustment for the swimmers,
both athletically and academically.
Bentz said he refrains from sche
duling too many road trips
because the athletes miss classes
and fall behind in their studies.
"One of the toughest things for
us is being away from home,"
Bentz said. "We try to minimize
our trips because of academics."

they dont have to work hard
to win. The Rams, he said, are
