Wow! Great for Jordyn. I thought she’d become an official asst head coach at UCLA.
I guess it makes the most sense to try to make her mark elsewhere. Ms. Val's shadow will be hard to escape.
I am massively disappointed. I thought UCLA was better than this. I was wrong.
Somebody’s got to spot practice, set up bars, and monitor the gear. As long as it’s not a scholarship slot...
And as long as the person is academically qualified and not just using the Caire/family friend connection as their only means to gain admittance to the school...
But, as a UCLA grad, I'm disappointed. It is a public university that gets more than 120K applicants/year and turns many away. Admission is not supposed to work like this there.
If she is going to be able to get into LSU’s rotation, this is absolutely the best choice. SEC has the best competition, and the meets at LSU are wildly popular. Plus (selfishly for me), the SEC Network broadcasts the meets every Friday, so I will be watch. Big10 Network hardly shows any meets.With the injury taking her out of Worlds contention, and her Olympic chances dwindling, I wonder if Alyona decided to go for the SEC experience instead of the B1G.
