GYM NERD SCHOOL

In the second class of the Gym Nerd School series this semester, we explain rules, myths, scandals, and important gym nerd history while answering your questions about women’s college gymnastics in the US.

  • Why do we watch college gymnastics — from outfits to broadcasts to teams to 10s
  • Jessica Quizzes Herself: The NCAA sport cartel system and the origin of women’s college gymnastics and the upcoming Name, Image and Likeness rules.
  • Dynasties and Usurpers: A timeline of college gymnastics history
  • Jessica Quizzes Spencer: Judging and the “rules” of college gymnastics scoring
  • “HELP: I just got into college gymnastics. How do I pick a favorite team?”
  • The Most Important Part: Scandals and dramas
  • Plus, Nicole Langevin from Precision Choreography and My Gym Judge joins to talk about the EIGHT WHOLE TENTHS that can be taken in the “artist formerly known as JO” for non-skills, which we decide is the solution for college judging

    I could totally be wrong here, but why doesn’t Madison Kocian also count as someone with the grand slam olympic, world, and ncaa title (w.o.n.) like Kyla Ross?

The little school kids are back in the stands but so quiet today! Everyone was instructed not to yell but they are enthusiastically clapping along to rotation song. They expert the arena to be sold out for finals.
