COLLEGE GYMNASTICS (03:36)

  • SEC excitement won the day on Friday. We ask: is there actually a way to make wins and losses matter in college, or is it just a nice idea?
    • Plus, Ruby’s shriek of joy, Alexa Al-Hameed’s Tkatchev, the Priessman/Hundley friendship featurette for people with feelings, Finnegan being all Finnegan, and Baumann being all Baumann
    • Crack or correct: Lexie Priessman’s 9.825 VT (8:08) and Trinity Thomas’s 9.950 FX
  • Sabrina Vega literally broke the beam in Georgia (or it bowed to her greatness)
  • Spencer has no words for the insane scoring at the UCLA/Arizona State meet.
  • Oklahoma scores 197.000, which is like 193.000 for Oklahoma
    • Maggie Nichols out with a bruised heel
    • Crack or correct: Anastasia Webb’s 9.950 on beam (45:20)
  • McKenna Merrell-Giles wins the hilarious beam fall award, and what’s the deal with Skinner’s scores?
  • Random stick-themed nonsense of the week: Oregon State’s stick chainsaw, and Illinois’ stick STICK
  • Shout outs to Arden Hudson of Ball State for vaulting a handspring repulsion 2/1, and Sophia Hyderally of Alaska for her magical floor.
  • Crack or correct: Ona Loper’s 9.750 vault, New Hampshire’s 49.425 beam rotation ((1:24:00)

ADVICE CORNER (1:08:59)

What is proper meet etiquette? Jessica and Spencer have some…differing views about how one should behave in the audience at a gymnastics competition. As you might imagine.
