This week’s (m)cocktail is Exhibition. Get your complete 2024 College & Cocktails/Mocktalis menu here! We discuss:

  • The huge LSU score and how easy it all is for Konnor McClain
  • When judging wrong is actually cheating
  • Deductions, with actual diagrams of why bones are what matter when judging angles not muscle
  • Why Maile O’Keefe got the wrong SV on UB
  • Amelie Morgan’s beam mount sequence: credit or no credit
  • McKenna’s Smith’s disco floor routine; coaches fashion wins; and reclaiming prairie hair
  • If it’s “mock sword fighting” why isn’t it mock crowning or mock DJ answering the phone? AKA Why we love analyst, Alisa Mowe.
  • Oklahoma and Cal’s vault rotations
  • Gabby Parea’s side flip to tucked 1.5 off the side of the beam
  • And of course, which sport smells the most disgusting (Spoiler alert: not gymnastics)

Every week we pick a college meet to watch, then go live, right here on this page to discuss our immediate thoughts about the meet. For more info on how to watch your favorite elites, Olympic and World medalists in college and all year long, check out The Balance Beam Situation’s schedule with links.

College & Cocktails combines our weekly Behind The Scenes Q&A live podcast with a college meet of the week. It’s all part of the bonus content for our Club Members who supporting our work year around.
