It's one thing to parade naked in front of your bathroom mirror, quite another to face the world in the altogether. Terry Schroeder knows. A four-time U.S. Olympic water polo player from Santa Barbara, Schroeder is immortalized in bronze outside the Coliseum, his nude torso standing tall for the idealized, universal Olympic athlete.

USC's Jovan Vavic has been named interim coach of the U.S. men's water polo program, replacing Terry Schroeder, who has returned to Pepperdine. Vavic's staff will include UC Irvine Coach Marc Hunt and USC assistant Marko Pintaric as assistants. Hunt guided the U.S. to a fourth-place finish in the World University Games last year. The appointments of Hunt and Pintaric are also on an interim basis. "Jovan Vavic is a proven winner," said Christopher Ramsey, the CEO of USA Water Polo.

Terry Schroeder, coach of the U.S. men's water polo team, announced Wednesday the 14-man roster he says he'll take to the Olympic Games in London this summer. One problem, though - Olympic water polo teams are limited to 13 players. Because of an injury to center JW Krumpholz, who suffered a concussion during pregame warmups at the FINA World League Prelims, Schroeder chose to keep an extra player on the U.S. team for next week's FINA World League Super Final in Kazakhstan. The U.S. must submit a 13-man Olympic roster by June 18 but the team can take an alternate to London.

Pepperdine defeated USC, 10-9, in the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. water polo tournament Friday to advance to the semifinals against undefeated Stanford at Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool in Long Beach. And although Stanford cruised to a 23-5 victory over Air Force for its 43rd straight win over two seasons, Pepperdine Coach Terry Schroeder doesn't believe the Cardinal is invincible.

BEIJING -- Yingdong Natatorium turned into a little slice of Budapest on Sunday afternoon as the Hungarian men's team cemented its status as the New York Yankees of water polo, winning a third straight Olympic gold medal. Hungary's adversary in the final was the United States, a surprise guest but a worthy one, pushing the Hungarians hard for almost three quarters before collapsing defensively in the fourth in front of a large and vocal contingent of Hungarian fans. Short term: Hungary won, 14-10, ripping through two American goalkeepers (Merrill Moses and Brandon Brooks)

--Heart patient William J. Schroeder may have missed his son's wedding in Jasper, Ind., over the weekend, but on Saturday he equaled the 112 days' survival record set by his predecessor, Barney Clark. Doctors at Humana Hospital Audubon in Louisville, Ky., had decided that the 90-mile trip to Jasper for the wedding would be too stressful for him. Instead, hospital officials took the wedding to Louisville for a dress rehearsal and dinner, which Schroeder attended.

Terry Schroeder considered hanging up his coaching whistle after the Beijing Olympics. He had pulled off a near miracle in barely a year with the U.S. men, steadying a water polo team that had gone through a revolving door of coaches and was ranked ninth in the world. He instantly had their respect as a four-time Olympian and captain of back-to-back silver-medal winners in 1984 and 1988. He quickly won their loyalty with an emphasis on teamwork, which appealed to players whose careers scattered them throughout Europe.

It seems ironic that one of the more permanent contributions made by three-time Olympian and former U.S. national team star Terry Schroeder has nothing to do with water polo. While he is a recognized figure to water polo fans in Eastern Europe, the greatest impression Schroeder has made on his home soil is that of the headless male athlete figure that graces the gateway of the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Take the man out of water and put street clothes on him. Then put him on a pool deck where he can feel the intensity of the competition but is unable to contribute to its outcome. Now, watch Terry Schroeder squirm. As the water polo coach of Pepperdine, the three-time Olympian--twice a silver medal winner--has grown accustomed to directing from the sidelines. But it's not where's he's happiest. "On the deck, it's frustrating," Schroeder said. "There's only so much I can do from there.

To have his body immortalized in bronze, standing for the ideal, universal Olympic athlete at the gateway to the Coliseum in Los Angeles was an honor. (And so embarrassing he almost passed out at the unveiling.) But that statue has no head, and Terry Schroeder does. He's very much a total person. The captain of the U.S. water polo team since 1983 may be known as one of the stars of the water polo pin-up poster and calendar.
