The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Best Routine of Week 6 Poll

Your instructions
1. Vote for the best routine
2. Don’t get upset when this inevitably devolves into a twitter popularity contest. It’s not that important.

Criteria
1. Only routines scoring 9.950+ will be included in the poll
2. There must be video available of that routine so that the voters can, you know, watch it.
3. Each gymnast may appear only once per week. The higher score (or my discretion in the event of a tie) is used.

1st 2nd 3rd
Week 1 Price (STAN) – UB Lee (UCLA) – UB Finnegan (LSU) – UB
Week 2 Crouse (NEB) – VT Price (STAN) – VT Gowey (UF) – BB
Week 3 Glenn (UCLA) – BB Ramler (MIN) – BB Hambrick (LSU) – FX
Week 4 McMurtry (UF)-BB Lee (UCLA) – BB Carter (ARK) – BB
Week 5 Hano (UCLA) – FX Lee (UCLA) – BB Dowell (OU) – VT

This week featured fewer 10s and 9.975s than the weeks before (WHAAAAA?), so the selected routines were all sets scoring 10.000 or 9.975 along with the 9.950s recorded by teams outside the top 10.
