4. The Longhorns have quite a special place in swimming under you two -- what does all that history and the NCAA titles you have been a part of winning and creating mean to you?

Kris:
Most of what has happened here is because of Eddie. Through Eddie, I have patterned the way I coach and teach to be much like him, though certainly I have -- and with his encouragement -- developed in my own way as well. As far as winning, our goal truly has never been to win a National Championship. The goal is for each individual on our team to improve every year. If we have the right blend of people and we do improve, then we are in the mix for a National Championship. But we preach weekly if everyone does their best and we end up 10th or 12th, we will shake hands with all the teams that placed higher than us and we will be very, very proud that we did our best.

    This sort of says it all, and what ALL of us should be patterning our methods after:

    "[We] preach weekly if everyone does their best and we end up 10th or 12th, we will shake hands with all the teams that placed higher than us and we will be very, very proud that we did our best."
