10:46 pm. Schneider, Arizona, FX- Double pike, front layout to front pike, double tuck to finish. Excellent routine!
10:43 pm. Gardiner, OSU, BB- Wolf turn right into a split, YAAAAS. Front aerial, beautiful bhs loso, and a lovely gainer full dismount.
10:41 pm. Howard, Arizona, FX- I missed her first two passes, but she hit a solid double pike to finish.
10:40 pm. UGH it was McMillan’s routine I missed and she got a 9.875!
Dessaints, OSU, BB- Full turn, solid bhs loso, front toss to beat jump, hit the gainer full dismount.
10:39 pm. Okay Sheppard’s heel totally went over the line on the landing mat but the judges probably didn’t see it.
10:37 pm. I missed the last OSU beam due to a frozen feed…
Sheppard, Arizona, FX- Big triple full with a step back, looked like her heel went OOB but they don’t think a flag went up. Double full to punch front to finish.
10:33 pm. Laub, Arizona, FX- Front through to 2.5, slipped OOB and kind of down to her knee a little. I think her hands touched the floor as well. Awesome double full to punch front tuck.

10:29 pm. Swanson, Arizona, FX- Rudi with a step back, whip to back layout full, and a solid 2.5 to finish, just helicopter ankles. Just realized these girls have mesh going ALL THE WAY DOWN THEIR SIDES. But at least it’s not like, super see through?!
10:27 pm. Gill, OSU, BB- Wobble on her jump series, front aerial with a wobble, which prob broke her flight series. Bhs loso with a break at the hips. Gorgeous switch half to beat jump. Gainer full with a small step.

10:22 pm. Jimenez, OSU, BB- Never mind, I’m here! Front toss to beat jump is great, bhs loso with a little bobble but she holds on, clean full turn, switch to straddle side, gainer pike with a step, and then steps her other foot in to join the front foot. Some little mistakes but great coverups.
10:21 pm. Okay, I might miss the first couple of routines because my doorbell just rang so let’s see who it is and hope it’s not a serial killer.
10:16 pm. Oregon State is leading 147.075 to 196.400. Arizona really had a chance for an upset here, but too bad that beam rotation hurt them! Would’ve at least made it interesting going into the final rotation.
10:11 pm. McMillan, OSU, FX- Front double full is great in the air and in general, 1.5 to front layout is beautiful, great Rudi to finish.
10:09 pm. Sheppard, Arizona, BB- Lovely leaps, bhs loso with her leg up and a break at the hips but she fights and holds it. Cat leap to switch side, side aerial with a break at the hips and she falls, so Arizona will count a fall! 😦 Hit her dismount.
10:06 pm. Gardiner, OSU, FX- 2.5 with a step forward, very nice. She’s hit 146 out of 149 routines…insane! 1.5 to front layout half, a little short going into the second skill but she corrects herself in the air. Lovely double pike to finish.
10:05 pm. Spencer, Arizona, VT- Beat jump to split 3/4, bhs loso with a little bobble backwards, switch to split side with low amplitude on the second skill, has to fight a little to hold it. Good side aerial, and a solid gainer full to finish.

OMG THE JETS GYMNASTS FROM MELBOURNE, ISIS’ CLUB PALS, ARE COMPETING NEARBY AND GOT TO GO TO THIS MEET, AMAZING.
9:56 pm. Howard, Arizona, BB- Tick tock, love those, bhs loso with slightly flexed feet and she’s leaning a little to the side but holds on. Pike jump to back tuck. Full turn. Switch to straddle side, stuck gainer tuck full off the end.
9:53 pm. Ricci, OSU, FX- Punch into her Rudi right into a loso, VERY NICE! #Borat 1.5 to front layout half. Great double pike to finish. Jim just said “Represent!” at the end hahahaha BLESS.
9:52 pm. Cowles, OSU, BB- Full turn, front aerial to bhs with flexed feet but otherwise a smooth connection. Good jumps. Standing loso. Cool front gainer full off the end!
9:50 pm. Jacobsen, OSU, FX- Double pike, her music reminds me of a “buy diamonds from Zales” commercial. Until the middle part where it’s like da club. 1.5 to front layout with a little bobble. Rudi to finish.
9:48 pm. Schneider, Arizona, BB- Full turn, front toss to bhs, good work. Split jump to sissone, stuck front full!
9:45 pm. 49.275 for Arizona on bars!! Amazing!! They’re leading 98.15 to Oregon State’s 98.025.
9:41 pm. Okay so I actually did some googling and can’t even FIND the results so that was a waste of my life!! We’ll see when they come back from break who’s leading.
9:40 pm. Spencer, Arizona, UB- Huge beautiful Gienger!! So clean!! Toe-on to clean bail, clean stuck double layout. That would be a 10 in the SEC or at OU.
9:39 pm. Dessaints, OSU, UB- This hair hahahaha bless. I can feel Marta Karolyi having a stroke. Huge Yurchenko 1.5! Excellent block and great landing.
9:38 pm. Ortiz, Arizona, UB- Big Tkachev to overshoot, giant full to double tuck sunk right into the mat for a stick.
9:37 pm. McMillan, OSU, VT- Yurchenko 1.5 a little messy with her legs, and she has to hop to the side off the mat.
9:36 pm. Berg, Arizona, UB- Piked Jaeger from an archy forward giant, leg sep on the bail, good landing on her full-in.
9:35 pm. Gill, OSU, BB- FTY with a little wild bounce on the landing.
9:34 pm. Laub, Arizona, UB- Great first handstand, clear hip to Tkachev, another good handstand, legs go a bit back on her bail, big stuck double layout. That was beautiful!
9:33 pm. Aufiero, OSU, VT- Clean FTY, tried to stick it with her feet apart but she loses her balance a bit. Would’ve been better to take a little hop I’d think because that was quite the fight.
9:32 pm. Hendrickson, Arizona, UB- Jaeger to overshoot with great form, clean handstand, double layout a little wonky with her feet in the air, step back.
9:31 pm. Jacobsen, OSU, VT- Tsuk full, not bad!

9:28 pm. 48.950 for Oregon State on bars by the way. #Professional
9:25 pm. So Maddi Leydin had a calf injury in warmups at Stanford, and Madison Cindric has a broken toe and is in a boot.
9:24 pm. So Oregon State is leading by about three tenths, 48.975 or something to 48.6 something? REALLY PROFESSIONAL OF ME. But I missed the scores and am too tired/lazy to open up the stats. It means googling Arizona gymnastics schedule, and clicking live stats!!!! I don’t want to!!!
9:19 pm. Aufiero, OSU, UB- Huge Tkachev, bail, super clean stuck double layout. Lovely work from her.
I think Arizona only put up five gymnasts…they were saying the girl who normally anchors, Swanson, went 5th so I’m guessing they put her there to anchor those five and then had a 6th just in case someone fell but decided not to use her once they got through a solid rotation.
9:18 pm. McMillan, OSU, UB- 100th career routine! Jaeger to overshoot, beautiful handstand before the giants into her excellent double layout, just a tiny shuffle.
9:17 pm. Swanson, Arizona, VT- The mesh parts of these leos look baggy on everyone?! FTY is lovely.
9:16 pm. Singley, OSU, UB- Giant full is lovely into a big Tkachev, that already looks better than everything thus far. Great handstands…double layout with a hop forward.
9:15 pm. Leung, Arizona, VT- FTY a little short with a hop.
9:14 pm. Jacobsen, OSU, UB- Tkachev to overshoot, a little wonky, double front with a cowboyed second flip and a big step forward. This feels like a weird UB rotation for them??
9:13 pm. Sheppard, Arizona, VT- Yurchenko layout half, BEAUTIFUL, and with a great landing!!
9:12 pm. Khamedoost, OSU, UB- Toe-on to Maloney to bail, some leg sep through it all. Double layout with leg sep, and her feet looked weird?? Like flexed out to the side? Good landing though.
9:11 pm. Watson, Arizona, VT- Yurchenko layout half with a step back.
9:09 pm. M. Colussi-Pelaez, OSU, BB- Bent her knees on her Jaeger which she caught WAY too close, practically at her elbows, and fell hard onto her knee. Bail with ankle sep, double layout with a decent landing.
9:08 pm. Laub, Arizona, VT- FTY with a bounce back. These leos are basically Russian Olympic leos.
9:06 pm. Shannon Miller just posted a vid of her Saturday night watching NCAA gym and then accidentally cut to her dog licking its balls and I laughed so hard, Shannon Miller is a gift to us all.
9:02 pm. Yay, it’s Jim and Amanda! Who called ASU and UCLA earlier, those who listened?
9:01 pm. Oregon State vs Arizona starting any second now!
5:21 pm. UCLA got a 197.150 even with a mistake on pretty much every event so good fight back from that! ASU goes 194.600.
5:20 pm. Christopherson, ASU, FX- Hit first two passes. 1.5 to front layout to finish.
DID SKINNER LET MERRELL TALK AT ALL IN THAT INTERVIEW???? LOL

One judge gave Peng a 9.5 and the other gave her a 9.8 lmao.

Utah wins with a fall, 196.45 to Cal’s 195.725.
5:11 pm. Lee, UCLA, BB- Nails the homma flares. Hit leap. Bhs layout. Double turn to beat jump WHAAAAAT. That was WHAT. 10 for that. Punch front lands super low, her foot skids back and she sits it on the beam. Call it a new skill! It’s basically what Kaytianna McMillan does. Hit the 1.5 dismount.
Skinner, Utah, FX- Double double, into a controlled lunge. 1.5 through to double full is great. Excellent tucked full-in to finish.
5:09 pm. Callis, ASU, FX- 2.5 with a big step. Illusion turn. Hit a pass that ended with a front layout. Hit routine.
Gallarzo, Cal, BB- Bhs loso with a slight wobble. Front aerial, does it again, front aerial to bhs with two steps back. Switch to split jump. Great 1.5, jumps feet together.

Rowe, Utah, FX- Double pike is great. Double full to loso. Great finish.
5:06 pm. Belkoff, ASU, FX- Double pike, hit routine, I GOT DISTRACTED FROM A DUMBASS VERIZON SALESMAN AT MY DOOR.
Richardson, Cal, BB- I missed all of this, BLAME VERIZON.
5:03 pm. Kocian, UCLA, BB- Front aerial to sheep jump is lovely. Before I said she’s the only elite whose form gets weaker in NCAA, I meant that only on bars. Elsewhere she’s to die for. Lovely bhs loso, switch to split jump with great amplitude, double full with a couple of steps.
Reinstadtler, Utah, FX- Full-in is too big and goes OOB. 1.5 to front layout. Good double pike to finish.
5:01 pm. Jones, ASU, FX- First pass was good but maybe a little too powerful. 1.5 to punch front.
Draghi, Cal, BB- Front aerial, bhs loso is okay, a little shaky, gainer full to finish with a good landing.
4:59 pm. Mossett, UCLA, BB- Omg she also does “a Moceanu” mount so YAS. Bhs loso. Ooh, that was a weird dismount…side somi to a layout full off the side, throwing it back to Nush kinda but not really. Knees are a little bent on the full.
Merrell, Utah, FX- Front double full with a step, so she can’t go into her punch front. Rudi to straddle is good.
4:57 pm. Brook, ASU, FX- Rudi is a little messy. Front lay front lay. Last pass leg form is a little loose.
Palomares, Cal, BB- Love her mount which I still think of as “a Moceanu” because why not. Hitting everything, bhs gainer full is a little low but hit to finish.
4:55 pm. Gerber, UCLA, BB- She looked like she said “I love you” to Miss Val right before she went up LOL I would too. Wolf turn, front aerial to split jump, slight check on bhs loso, excellent dismount.

Mossett, UCLA, FX- Whip to stuck double tuck. Great! Double pike is a little low with a step forward.
4:41 pm. Udowitch, ASU, BB- Front aerial, wobble, and she’s off. They’ll count a fall. 😦 Does it again, front aerial with a big pause to back tuck. Switch to split jump. Front toss. Side aerial to stuck layout full.

4:36 pm. Robinson, Cal, FX- Strong double arabian. 1.5 to front layout is good. Double pike.
4:35 pm. Ross, UCLA, FX- Double tuck is good but double pike has a stumble backwards. Is this her first time doing floor? I feel like I haven’t seen UCLA in like three weeks. 1.5 to front layout, second guessed the landing and sat it. Still smiling like “yeah I’m Kyla get over it.”
4:33 pm. Lentz, ASU, BB- Bhs loso is solid. Wobble on her standing loso. Good dismount.

Skinner, Utah, BB- Omg her beam music is The Climb LMAO that is so MyKayla. Bhs loso with some crunchy legs. Side aerial, switch to split jump, she’s SO aggressive in literally everything she does. Full L turn, straddle jump to back tuck, double tuck with a small bounce.
4:26 pm. Savvidou, UCLA, FX- She saluted too early, I don’t have sound on so maybe a music issue? Omg her toe flick in her choreo?! YAS?! 2.5 with a big step forward. 1.5 to front layout is good. Good double pike.
Peterson, Cal, FX- Double pike. Hit her Rudi. 1.5 to front layout, a little stumble.

4:13 pm. UCLA has a 98.6 and ASU has a 97.325.
4:12 pm. Utah and Cal are tied at 97.7!! Utah will still win though, tbh.
4:11 pm. Christopherson, ASU, UB- Big task on her shoulders to bring ASU to the end without counting a fall. She anchors everything because she’s a badass though. Toe on to Ray, going slow and steady, catches bail in a major arch but uses her core to swing it back the other way around probably getting more momentum into her toe shoot tbh. Hit the dismount with a step. Will be a low score but not a fall at least.
4:10 pm. Ross, UCLA, VT- Beautiful stuck FTY! Sailed right down, like her DTYs used to before she grew 17 feet.
4:09 pm. Rowe, Utah, UB- Giant full right on the bar to Tkachev, bail is caught sideways and she tries to hold it but falls right onto her butt so Utah will count a fall, really opening the doors for Cal. Finished with a step on her double layout dismount.
Imbus, ASU, UB- OMG SZAFRANSKI GOT A 9.875 YAS. Maloney to bail, crashes the bail onto her chest which looked painful, but she looks okay. Stalder to double tuck a little cowboyed but stuck.

Hall, UCLA, VT- FTY with a deep landing.
4:07 pm. Szafranski, ASU, UB- Toe-on to Maloney (ankle sep) to pak (leg sep), I can never get over her lines. Double layout practically stuck. That was her best routine yet I think.
Lewis, Utah, UB- Giant full to Tkachev, double layout nearly stuck.
4:06 pm. Robinson, Cal, VT- Front handspring onto the springboard front pike with a step.
Cipra, UCLA, VT- FTY, not bad. Oh, she’s back!
4:05 pm. Lee, Utah, UB- Over arched a handstand, regroups, Jaeger to overshot, full-in is short and she basically had to be spotted so she didn’t die.
Wilson, ASU, UB- Missed the beginning but I saw her bail and a solid dismount. Three hit UBs for them!
4:04 pm. Peterson, Cal, VT- FTY with a big hop back.
Kocian, UCLA, VT- FTY a little off center but a good block and mostly clean in the air.
4:03 pm. Skinner, Utah, UB- I missed most of this aside from her toe-on to full-in with a hop.

4:02 pm. Kramer, UCLA, VT- FTY, good landing. Mostly clean in the air.

4:01 pm. Rushton, ASU, UB- Huge Tkachev, slightly bent knees, short handstand before clear hip, clean almost stuck double layout.
Reinstadtler, Utah, UB- Jaeger, messy full-twisting double tuck dismount in the air, and she’s short on the landing as well, step out.
4:00 pm. Sylvie Seilnacht, Cal, VT- FTY, a little short.
Honest, UCLA, VT- FTY, form is a little loose.
Here’s the Utah leo:
3:59 pm. Merrell, Utah, UB- Toe-on to Deltchev! YAS. Why have I never seen that before in her routine? FUN. Lovely stalder to double tuck, step back.
3:58 pm. Gallarzo, Cal, VT- Yurchenko layout half, not bad. Clean in the air.
3:57 pm. Someone asked for a pic of the Utah leo so I’m gonna try to get one eventually. When they’re on bars. I didn’t even notice it earlier, is it crazy?
3:54 pm. A couple of Big Ten meets starting in a few minutes but they’re all pay streams soooo no. I’ll check in with scores though.
3:52 pm. UCLA leads Arizona State 49.3 to 48.675, and Utah leads Cal 49.275 to 48.875. No surprises so far in terms of scores. AND KYLA GOT A 10 LAST WEEK so she’s allowed to get a 9.375 this week. Enjoy it Kyla.
3:50 pm. Lee, UCLA, UB- Lovely first handstand before her big Ray, another perf handstand before her huge Bhardwaj, I don’t think anyone could do that skill more perfectly. Beautiful van Leeuwen, short last handstand, beautiful stuck double layout. Aside from that last handstand that was a literally perfect routine, like as perfect as a routine could be.
3:49 pm. Gallarzo, Cal, UB- Big Jaeger but falls. Tries it again but falls again. Double layout to finish.
Christopherson, ASU, VT- Yurchenko layout, mostly clean. Little bounce.
3:48 pm. Skinner, Utah, VT- DTY, clean in the air with a great landing, just a small hop back.
Ross, UCLA, UB- Whenever UCLA and Utah are on at the same time at different meets I’m always simultaneously watching Kyla and MyKayla. Maloney to bail arches over and tucks her legs, tries to get it under control but ends up hopping off. Redoing her grips so maybe an issue. Double layout is lovely but maybe a little short, chest angled forward and a small hop back.
3:47 pm. Ginn, ASU, VT- FTY a little loose with a step back.
Richardson, Cal, UB- Good handstand, toe-on to huge Tkachev to overshoot, double layout with a small hop forward.
3:46 pm. Savvidou, UCLA, UB- Arches over first handstand but controls it, giant half with ankle sep to big piked Jaeger, good handstand before bail, good last handstand, giant full to double tuck a little cowboyed with her chest down and she fights to keep it up on her toes.
Lewis, Utah, VT- FTY a little piked right before she lands.
3:45 pm. Wilson, ASU, VT- FTY, opens up early and is able to flare it a little, good landing!
Ho, Cal, UB- Toe-on to Gienger to overshoot, slight leg sep when she catches the Gienger. Good handstand before giants into the full-in dismount with a step.
3:44 pm. Honest, UCLA, UB- Great first handstand, Tkachev with some slight leg bend when she releases from the bar, straddle back, full-in with a step back.
Merrell, Utah, VT- Clean stuck Yurchenko 1.5! Very nice…tucks her knees right before the landing though.
3:43 pm. Lentz, ASU, VT- FTY with some messy legs but a decent landing.
Takara, Cal, UB- Clear hip to huge Gienger to overshoot, some form breaks. Short handstand before full-in with a step.
3:42 pm. Meraz, UCLA, UB- Ray, good bail, double layout piked in the first flip and underrotated, hop forward.
Reinstadtler, Utah, VT- Clean FTY with a big bounce back. Lots of power.
3:41 pm. Belkoff, ASU, VT- Decent FTY, a little short.
Shu, Cal, UB- Ray to bail/overshoot, I’d say it’s more overshoot but it was close to handstand. Short handstand before giants into full-in dismount with a hop.
3:40 pm. Kocian, UCLA, UB- Omg she curled her ponytail, GET IT MADISON. Chow to pak (leg sep), muscled handstand before her Chow half, but her form is better there. Stalder to full-in with some messy legs and a step. Idk how her form has DECREASED with fewer skills?? She’s legit the opposite of every other elite to NCAA gymnast in history.
Roberts, Utah, VT- FTY with a big step back.
3:39 pm. Sofie Seilnacht, Cal, UB- Piked Jaeger, bail, after watching little junior elites fall all over their heads all day this is so soothing. Front layout 1.5 dismount with a step.
Rushton, ASU, VT- Hit vault, I didn’t really see specifics.
3:38 pm. Rowe, Utah, VT- FTY with loose legs, but a great landing.
3:35 pm. Kent State vs West Virginia is just finishing up and it looks like WVU had a fabulous meet! Waiting for one more hit beam to come back from a fall earlier in the rotation on that event but they could break 196.
3:34 pm. Also watching UCLA at Arizona State right now. Swimming is still finishing up on that stream.
3:32 pm. Starting the PAC 12 meets now!! Sad news to report…Toni Ann Williams has torn her Achilles and is out for the season. 😦 Gonna be an interesting meet for Cal against Utah today.

9:05 pm. Priessman, LSU, UB- Huge Tkachev to pak, looks much better than it has this season but that could be because we have a side angle tonight! Great handstand before her double layout dismount, pinged off a little early it seemed, step back.

8:50 pm. Denver only put up five on bars so they’re at 48.4 because they had a fall. 😦 WHAT is going on?! Why don’t they have six gymnasts who can do bars?! It’s REALLY hurting them. I mean, they were a top 10 team and WVU upset them last week and now Nebraska will upset them this week. Well…maybe. Nebraska counted a fall on beam with six going up so yeah. DII Texas Woman’s actually was ahead of Nebraska after their 48.325 on floor!
8:47 pm. Oklahoma had a 49.275 on vault with Nichols’ 9.925 the highest.
Alabama currently leads 49.375 over Florida’s 49.325.
Shockingly Gnat only got a 9.95 so kudos to the judges for doing their jobs and not ranking that higher than Hambrick’s! I’m okay with them scoring the same. 49.4 for LSU to 49.0 for Missouri but I don’t think that’s right…I think the live stats are taking one of Missouri’s exhibition routines into account? Yeah, on TV it says Missouri has 48.35. Live stats are wrong.
8:45 pm. Bailey, Alabama, VT- Yurchenko layout half, nice.
McMurtry, Florida, UB- Big Ray, beautiful handstand before her lovely bail to toe shoot, huuuge full-in with a hop.

8:43 pm. Miller, Missouri, UB- Fell on her Jaeger.
Baker, Florida, UB- Hit her release, bail, toe half to double front cowboyed but stuck.
8:42 pm. Hambrick got a 9.95. I would’ve given her a 10 because why not? If that was last up in the lineup it would’ve been a 10.
Edney, LSU, VT- Yurchenko 1.5, loses control on the last half twist, big step forward.
Guerrero, Alabama, VT- Yurchenko 1.5, excellent!! The landing was brilliant. She’s thrilled. Only complaint is her form in the air. It’s very loose. Knees are bent.

8:37 pm. Boren, Florida, UB- Why did I think this meet was in Gainesville? WELL, it’s at Bama. Hit her Tkachev, clear hip to bail is super aggressive, great dismount.

8:36 pm. Huber, Missouri, UB- Great extension on her. Big straddle Jaeger to overshoot, stuck double layout.
8:35 pm. Priessman, LSU, VT- Killing her purple eye shadow and lipstick! Get it. Yurchenko 1.5!!!!!! YAS LEXIE. EXCELLENT. Better than her fulls! Just bends her knees slightly before landing and takes the smallest step.
