    I thought MD looked really good for a team I knew nothing about and for the first meet of the season. Again, I only saw their bars and vault. There was one girl on the team who stood out for me on those two events, Abigail Adams.

    Thanks Brian. Maybe I will check out a meet this year.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    As usual, LSU is best (not of all, but the best events for them) on vault and floor. I think they will do well on bars as well and that should keep them in the 5-10 range this year depending just how well they do.

    I have read on two separate occasions where the LSU staff has referred to Engle's bar routine as the best in the Nation. I really like Engle but her bar routine is the same as it has always been. Why is it suddenly the best? She does a Khorkina release and a double front dismount. Nothing else really stands out. Maybe she is throwing a 2nd release in practice to add in later in the season? For having the best bar routine, they only had her 2nd or 3rd in the bars lineup last week. She has a lot of consistency issues so maybe they are trying to give her a big confidence boost...

    So nice to see UCLA off to such a good start. They're due for another NCAA title, I think it'll happen in the next couple of years for them, if not this year (hopefully)!

    I agree, Karpenko, I think they are building a great team.

    The Lady Luck Invitational should be fun because it has 3 very closely ranked teams even if they are middle of the pack at the moment. I think LSU is the clear favorite but if they are still building people towards 10 SV vaults and such then any one of those teams, or all of them, can beat them. I hate when meets are out West, I don't want to wait that long! lol

    ETA: Found this very informative update from LSU: http://lsugymnastics.blogspot.com/

    Lyons has sprained her ankle again but it is not the one she has always had trouble with, out at least 3 weeks. E. Garcia looks cleared to compete beginning mid Feb. Big relief and not that late into the season at all, she should be comfortable come post season. I've heard good things about her and we need her, LSU's depth has never been like this with injuries and such.

    I'm trying to find out what they are talking about when they mention Maryland coaching staff having poor sportsmanship. I was at the meet last week but left after the 2nd rotation. Very curious about that one...

    Fridgebreak, if you want to add this link, it will have updates, there will be no live scoring. www.twitter.com/lsugym There will be live audio from the Geaux Zone which I believe is free but may require registering.

    Georgia lost to Bama, don't have exact scores but UGA had some issues.

    LSU scores 49.375 on vault at their meet! 9.9 for Lee (wasnt even originally in the vault line up) and Sabrina and a 9.95 for Jackson! Jackson usually doesn't go for sticks until well later in the season, she must be feeling confident, she is usually horrified of vault despite being so good. It is a great score but most importantly it is .550 higher than last week which puts them in good position to improve their team score/ranking.

    That would be great! I am a San Jose State student, and would be interested in hearing reports on the team or if there is a particular gymnast who does well. I have heard good things about Thomasina Wallace.

    Is it horrible that I take a small amount of pleasure in the fact that Shalya Worley is struggling just a bit in her NCAA start? Karma is a you know what...

    No. Though I don't know her, I went from over her pre-Beijing to post-Beijing.

    She can struggle for a bit longer and fight through it before I get back on the train. I do like her beam routine.

    I'm not 100% sure on this either, but from what I remember, they had done a lot of fundraising to get Shayla's family to Beijing before the team was even named. After she missed out on the team, they decided to go to China anyways, and Shayla blogged about her experience as an attendee and did a lot of complaining about the Chinese culture and pointed out very little positive aspects about their trip. There may be more to it than that, but that's the parts of it that I remember a year and a half later.

    Oh cool! I can watch that meet before the FDs start airing live on NBC.

    Random: Is Hollie Vise still competing for Oklahoma? I think she's either a junior or senior this year but I don't know how she's doing at all. I also have no clue if she's still only doing beam/bars or if she added more to her repertoire this year. Thanks if you happen to have any info!

    Yes she is, and she's having an awesome year so far. She's doing floor again, youtube her. This year is the best Hollie has looked since 2004 Olympic Trials.
