2008 Team Final Watch-Along

Have I not watched this team final since the night of the competition? Possibly.

Which we were required to watch on tape delay on the west coast, by the way.

Actually, I’m not sure if we HAD to or if I CHOSE to, but I do know I was not watching live and got spoiled as to the result by the gymternet.

These things stay with you.

Conference Championships Fake Live Blog – March 21, 2020

Because we need this. And by we, I mean me.

Today—what would have been conference championships if the NCAA season were still going on—I’ll be blogging a couple of old conference championships as if they were happening live. Here’s the schedule.

Saturday, March 21Video
3:00pm ET/12:00pm PT – 2008 SEC ChampionshipLINK
5:00pm ET/2:00pm PT – 2012 Pac-12 ChampionshipLINK

I’m pressing play on the YouTube videos at the exact moment listed. Do the same if you want to be part of this cool kids sleepover.

Up first, the 2008 SEC Championship.

Georgia has won the last three national championships and Suzanne’s cheekbones are more confident than ever. Georgia comes into the conference championship as the #1 team in the country and de facto host of the event but is critically without Courtney Kupets, who tore her Achilles (again) four meets prior. That development has given #3 Florida, #5 LSU, and #6 Alabama hopes of snatching an upset win.

A whole ELEVEN 10.0s have been awarded so far this season including TWO (!!!!) at Georgia’s senior night last week, team scores have been trending into the higher part of the 197s, and we’re all worried about what this means for rising scores again.

Before we get to Cal and UCLA, there have been some significant developments on the regionals cut-off front so far today. George Washington got near a season high to keep its hopes alive, especially in the face of Central Michigan and New Hampshire not getting the scores they were looking for (both teams will be out of the top 36 in next Monday’s rankings).

North Carolina’s score was not totally ideal since it was in the 195s, but enough to drop another 194 and stay right in contention. Western Michigan got a good score in the 196s, but it’s a major uphill battle at this point, and WMU will be well down in Monday’s rankings, especially because Northern Illinois came through to get itself up into the hunt this week. Pitt competes now, and that score will be quite significant (as will Ohio State’s as Ohio State is suddenly teetering on the edge of being in danger and needs to remove that danger with a good score today).

Because you need some more gymnastics today, right? Right.

In NCAA news, we’ve already had a bit of a 10-a-thon, with Trinity Thomas getting one on floor, Rachel Gowey getting one on beam, and Ona Loper getting one on vault. To go with Maggie Nichols’ vault from yesterday. It’s that time of year…

DIII west regionals are also underway, with the favorites Whitewater, La Crosse, and Oshkosh in control of the three qualification spots after 2 events.
