- We have TWO episodes this week, so be sure to catch our 1993 NCAA Nationals commission as well!
- Updates on some of the other difference makers we could have talked about last week but didn’t. Like idiots. Plus, many more American collegiate medalists.
- More on the Jade Carey situation
- Jessica thinks it’s AWESOME, Spencer thinks it’s strategically unsound, and they both think USAG botched it (but whaaaaa?)
- The great INDIVIDUAL vs. TEAM debate, years in the making
- In the individual corner, Jessica O’Beirne, who gives two giant steaming turds about team medals
- In the team corner, Spencer Barnes, who finds a way to make this about math homework somehow
- We create some much better rules for how the US should be handling individual Olympic spots
- The Youth Olympic Games have started! We need to talk about the “mixed multi-discipline team event”
