Ah. We begin with UCLA’s visit to Cal.

Be forewarned, today has been advertised as the 25th annual UCLA Exploring Depth February Road Meet. It is a hallowed tradition wherein UCLA travels to Cal, or Washington, or Arizona, or something and Allison Taylor finally gets to compete on bars. Some years it’s more exploring depth-y than others, so we’ll see how things play out this time. Continue reading Saturday Live Blog – February 10, 2018

Today started a little earlier than usual with some Penn State/Ohio State action before the main event: Alabama’s visit to Florida, though you may have noticed if you tried to watch that Ohio State is still one of those remaining schools that shows only the home-team routines. Because that makes sense.

Ohio State has a lead over Penn State after 1, 49.050 to 49.025, with Penn State falling off expectations on bars because of a surprising miss from Sabrina Garcia for 8.700.

Things Are Happening – February 9, 2018

A. The state of the US women’s program

It’s basically that.

If you’re all of humanity, you’ve spent the last couple months asking, “But…what…is…this…though…now?”

USAG provided some guidance as to where things stand in our new post-ranch, post-Valeri dystopian void by announcing the plan for upcoming spring competitions.

A one-day verification competition, held at LSU’s training facility on February 25, will be used in lieu of the typical national camp to decide assignments for the World Cup events in Birmingham, Stuttgart, and Tokyo, as well as the alternate for the American Cup.

So basically, it’s a camp…except shorter, so with less time for everything to be aggressively terrible? I can get on board with that. I do think there’s virtue in getting feedback from national coaches and judges about training, technique, and how things will be evaluated, but that can be added back in later, ideally in a better format that’s geared more toward learning and improvement as a group rather than IMPRESS MARTHA EVERY SECOND, YOU CAN’T BE INJURED OR SHE WILL THINK YOU’RE WEAK.

Marquee Meet

[9] Alabama @ [5] Florida

Florida returns home for the first time since “the incident” against Oklahoma, and this being Florida, at home, with the way scores are trending, all signs point to a big number. How surprised will you be if multiple 10s are not awarded at this meet? All the surprised? Correct.

For everyone who isn’t Florida, the big story in this meet is Alabama. We’re still early in the season, but Alabama’s lineups—and ranking—are becoming a significant quandary, particularly on vault where Alabama is ranked 24th and has yet to break 49.025 despite having the potential for a majority-lineup of 10.0 starts. It would be very Dana Duckworth to wait to be good on vault until mid-March, but right now this lineup looks far from that point, and without too many obvious upgrades in sight. It’s going to be nearly impossible for Alabama to contend without significant vault improvements, in both difficulty and landings, so watch for progress on that front.

Best Routine of Week 5 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.
