So I guess Fl doesn’t care about beating OU in regular season because they are resting everyone and wins losses don’t matter? Or smart and saving everyone for the post season? I really hope Victoria is OK. What a scary vault

That vault was scary.

I thought the same thing also, resting the higher scoring gymnasts? Against OU?

I was surprised to see that Victoria did not have medical personnel tend to her. It looked like she hit her head hard. It was great to see Riley and Morgan compete. Both OU and Florida looked great!

the commentators like you are three 10’s away from the record! How often do u think about it? Trinity is like I only think about it b/c it gets talked about all the time.

OMG What if Trinity doesn’t get another 10 this season b/c everyone is putting so much pressure on her! It’s been like two weeks at this point which is two years in the NCAA world.

Do you guys think Trinity hasn’t gotten a 10 in two weeks b/c of all the pressure to beat the record? I know two weeks without a 10 isn’t actually long but it’s equivalent to like two years in NCAA judging

The last thing I want to see is Trinity stressed about the situation to where it affects her mental health in a negative manner. It does seem like the NCAA can’t change.,They evaluate everything with a stat. At some point, the wrong team is going to win since we s re now down to using the last two points.
