Geaux LSU! I hope they have a great season but losing ACK is going to hurt.

So what's the news with Melanie Sinclair? I haven't seen anything since she was suspended from the team after her arrest.

From what I remember, she has been suspended from the team indefinitely. I was checking out some NCAA gymnastics fan message boards and people were posting predictions for UF's season lineups and no one was including her name anywhere. Between that and the legal trouble she is in, I am going to assume that her career as a Gator gymnast is over.

Here's some videos from various team's intrasquad meets, if anyone is interesting in a preview for what's in store for this season... I'll try to add more as they become available (slash I make a better attempt to find them :D)

LSU has their first meet this coming Friday. I can't believe it is so soon! I actually need to see if they had/have a meet this weekend as, in the past, they ALWAYS have their first meet of the season at an away meet, usually in Cancun or something. It would be odd for their first meet to be a home meet but maybe this year things are different. Off to check...

I guess this isn't new news, but since I don't follow gymnastics that regularly, :eek:

This seems a bit ironic, given the situation: :shuffle:

Sinclair, a Family, Youth and Community Services major...

I checked and LSU's first meet is the 8th and it is indeed a home meet. It is a change for them but I wont complain as I will be able to attend. :)

Wow, a lot of big match ups the first week of the season. Look how many ranked teams face off! Of course, win/loss is irrelevant in NCAA Gymnastics so no teams are really in danger of losing ranking spots unless they tank and score poorly.

Thanks for the update with the matchups this weekend! I hope the Big Ten network shows some of the meets again this year. :cheer:

We'll be the AU/UA meet tonight. I hope that the UA gymnists partied too much during the championship game so maybe we'll win :P. We came really close (closer than ever) last year at both meets. We'll see how it plays out tonight.

Going to the LSU meet in about an hour, it starts at 7 our time! Will try to remember as much as I can to share when I get back home. I always have a hard time at the first meets because I don't know the new girls and some change their skill sets and layouts of routines.

Bama beat Auburn 195.650 to 195.200. It was a good meet. I didn't understand our low scoring because the girls did really good for the most part. A few over-rotations on floor and we had one fall off the beam. They had 2 step out of bounds on floor, several over rotations,1 fall on beam,1 almost fall, and several balance checks. So, really confused but again it was a good meet and we never beat bama so it wasn't really disappointing.
