Saturday and Sunday Meets

For Saturday and Sunday, I probably won’t be doing much of the normal routine-by-routine live blogging (save that for Monday, when I’ll be all over it), but I’ll be popping in and out watching bits of things over the two days and will keep this post here for some basic reactions and impressions as needed. Feel free to use the comments to communicate all your feelings/profanities/side-eyes/insane commentator quotes/crack-smoking-judge reports from whatever you’re watching. I’d love to know what I’m missing. We’re all in this together. We can get through NCAA gym as a family.

The Rutgers/Illinois feed was going Rutgers-only for the first half of the meet (it’s also fun when they cut away from a floor routine to show a judge just doing some judging), but I’m still slightly appalled that a team with Horth, Kato, and O’Connor all going on bars can keep scoring a 2. Those are three would-be 9.9s. I picked Illinois to have a big year before the season started, and I’m sticking to it. The pace at halfway is still an improvement on last week, though. Ish. This will not be a usable score for Rutgers after a bars rotation in which every single person fell on a gienger. Did I spy with my little eye a Mustafina dismount, though? You go, Rutgers.

Here we go, yet again. Some big meets will get underway right at 7:00/4:00, so remember to be a Punctual Percy otherwise you’re going to miss things. Important things like Bridget Sloan’s vault or covering your eyes while UCLA is on bars.

We’ve already had some action this weekend, and it went terribly. LSU scored a 195.800 in the Vegas meet after committing five falls in two rotations. So that fell apart quickly, as did LSU’s ranking. No Priessman in that meet, and Hambrick had to be pulled off floor after her beam fall. Cannamela (who is settling in to that #7-on-every-event role) had to come in on three events and had a rough one, but she’s going to be critical until the squad is back up to full strength.
