Maybe unable to access pool behind this?

The only thing even in this world is the number of hours in a day.
The difference between winning or losing is what you do with those hours.

She got her Tulane degree. Maybe she wants to swim close to home (I don’t know where she’s from) or the “prestige” of swimming in the P5 was too much to pass up. Or it could very well be the lack of easy access to a pool to practice in.

I don't know about ""prestige"" but it's difficult to compare our swimming program to Auburn's. They've won multiple national championships and regularly have swimmers in the Olympics.

Yeah, uh, a swimmer leaving Tulane to swim at Auburn is like the equivalent of a football player transferring to Alabama or a basketball player transferring to Duke. This isn't like "look what we did wrong, driving athletes away", it's more like "holy cow, we had a really good one, can't blame her for taking the opportunity".
