9:00 ET/6:00 PT – [8] Denver @ [11] Southern Utah FLOG

Friday begins coolly and calmly enough with Kentucky/Georgia, but an hour later we’re hit with a typhoon of 8 top-11 teams in simultaneous action. For live-blogging purposes, I’ll be focusing on the Oklahoma quad—because I know that’s the hardest for a lot of people to get—but not at the expense of Florida/Alabama, a jewel of the SEC schedule. A three-way tie for #11 this week also gives us an #11 v. #11 match-up between Boise State and Southern Utah, which is far too “we’re a tie!!!” for my taste and needs to be used to determine who is the true #11.

B. The weekend of horrendous scheduling

Thanks, NCAA gymnastics. Your everything is terrible.

Friday begins with five simultaneous meets involving significant teams. Oh, just the five. I’m sort of glad Oklahoma’s meet is behind a paywall since it takes one of the options off the table that we don’t have to bother pretending to pay attention to. So then it’s just the three SEC meets and Southern Utah, suddenly a top-10 team. Easy. We won’t succumb to hysterical hallucinations at all.  Continue reading Things Are Happening – January 26, 2017

It’s a double-meet weekend for Missouri, NC State, Iowa, and Georgia. I have listed those four teams in the order in which they are ranked. This is the world we live in. Significant (as significant as we get in the second week of January) meets highlight Friday and Sunday. Saturday is a little sparse, but we’ll make do. I’ll have a live blog of that Ohio State quad with Michigan and Washington to keep things interesting. Here’s what I’m watching for:

B. LSU/Alabama

  • LSU’s vault edge
    In the first week, LSU competed three 10.0 vaults to Alabama’s one (Brannan did not vault) and showed much more control on landings. Repeated, those week 1 results would give LSU a margin on vault that Alabama would be hard pressed to make up on the other pieces without the benefit of some falls.

Here we are. Here we be. The NCAA season. I’m commandeering these Things Are Happening posts for the NCAA weekend schedules now because…that’s what’s happening. Note that, of the top 25 teams, Nebraska, Boise State, and Washington will not be competing the first weekend, and the Northern California five don’t go until Monday.

Also be aware that older schedules had the Auburn/Oregon State meet beginning at 7:00 ET/4:00 PT, but it is now scheduled for 8:00 ET/5:00 PT. I’m interested in this one, but because of the timing, it’s going to get third-most-important-meet-right-now treatment.

If the streaming link doesn’t say “FREE,” it requires a cable log-in or a specific stream subscription depending on the meet. The ESPN3 links require only an internet log-in, so those are your best bet without cable subscriptions. For the others, try borrowing a log-in from someone you know (if you know people, which you really shouldn’t), otherwise you have my permission to stream them “illegally.” Shhh. My permission means a whole lot. If you’re not in the US, illegal streams are basically your option (unless you want to pay for the Pac-12 international subscription), so please be comfortable with the level of your ad blocker. Or the level of your wanting to know about hot Asian singles.

The schedule will continue to be updated with the remaining links as they become available. Continue reading Things Are Happening – January 5, 2017

2017 NCAA Schedule

It’s here sort of but not entirely! Ah, the NCAA special! Hurrah and hurrah!

Now that a whopping 65% of next season’s NCAA schedules have been released, we have at least some semblance of an idea of how our 2017 lives will look. Enough to put together a composite schedule that isn’t just a wasteland made of tumbleweeds.

As always, the winner of Being Good at Schedules is the University of Wisconsin system, while the loser remains the Ivy League (brought to you by A Random Times New Roman Page of Fictional Maybe-Meets).

The new fun trend, and by fun I mean terrible, is for teams to put up a schedule that includes only home meets. Oh, thank you so much for this helpful and complete information…

As with last season, the full schedule with all 82 teams will sit in the bar at the top throughout the season and will be updated as the remaining schools get their lives together. And also it’s right here.

2017 NCAA SCHEDULE

But because that thing is a behemoth, here is a summary schedule featuring only the meets I think might be mildly interesting and whatnot. Meets between two (or more) of last year’s Super Six teams are in bold.  Continue reading 2017 NCAA Schedule
