General Comments, Funny Stories, etc.

"Guy legitmately knows next to nothing about swimming. How can you coach a sport that you never even played!?? Has not even the slightest clue when it comes to the technical aspects of swimming.

Is never on the deck during practice, and refuses to alter his recycled work-outs that have existed for over 30yrs! Swimming has evolved ten fold, but Coach Groden expresses little interest in adapting.

Plays favorites to an extreme. You can be Michael Phelps, but if you don't buy into Groden's game, then don't ever expect to have the opportunity to travel. He's right about everything and anything and there is no debating it.

Guy is so disorganized. His office still contains documents and media guides from the 70's! The assistant coach is left to do everything, from compliance, to organizing transportation to actually running practice and taking splits. No idea what Groden's real purpose is." - 4/5/2011
