HEADLINES

While Spencer is on the mend, Jessica is joined by Michigan great, Olivia Karas.

  • LSU are Champions!!
  • Courtney Kupets is out at Georgia. After seven seasons the UGA gymnastics coach, Courtney Kupets Carter, is gone. This has since kicked off a whirlwind of speculation surrounding her successor. The lead candidate heading into the weekend was new national champion head coach Jay Clark, which pushed a bidding war that is rumored to have reached $2 million before Clark turned it down according to our sources. We discuss the other coaches we’re hearing Georgia is interested in and are expected to make an announcement soon. 
    • We discuss how this transpired
