SUNDAY FEBRUARY 26

4:40 pm. Oklahoma goes 198.175 without Maggie Nichols BUT with crazy scoring that I personally loved as an OU fan. Maggie would’v gotten a perfect 40 at this meet and I would have loved every second of it. 192.975 for TWU counting a couple of falls on bars and beam.

4:39 pm. Jones, TWU, FX- Double tuck, double pike, first was a little short. 1.5 front layout, basically stuck, excellent finish!

4:36 pm. Capps, Oklahoma, BB- Bhs loso to beat jump, lovely, full turn, front aerial, little check and doesn’t do scale, switch to straddle side, stuck gainer full!

4:16 pm. Oklahoma 148.725 to TWU 143.950.

4:11 pm. One judge gave AJ a 10 LMAO she literally RAN OUT of her middle pass and hopped on her last pass. The judges saw my “it’s not a mistake, it’s choreo!” thing and were like “oh okay!” I swear to god these judges are out of their minds but again, my OU bias is like “YAS that’s a 10, everything’s a 10.”

4:08 pm. Jackson, Oklahoma, FX- Huge open full-in, great landing. Whip half to front full, kinda runs out of it. Pretend it’s choreo!!! Not a mistake at all, sir. Aaaaand the feed goes out again so I’m just going to be like “her last pass was perfect, the best in history.” oh, here we go, double pike with a small hop.

4:07 pm. Jones, TWU, BB- Roundoff back pike. Full turn. A little wobble after her jumps. Hit dismount.

4:04 pm. Capps, Oklahoma, FX- Hit double back to start. After watching Michigan choreo earlier which is just nonstop jerky arm movements this is a breath of fresh air. Hit middle pass, nice and clean. Lovely Rudi to finish.

4:03 pm. Vincent, TWU, BB- Switch to back tuck. Bhs loso with bent knees and a fall, so they’ll have to count a fall. gainer full with a good landing.

4:01 pm. Dowell, Oklahoma, FX- Double front is great, into a stag. 1.5 to front layout is excellent. Front lay front full is excellent.

4:00 pm. Alderman, TWU, BB- Switch to standing loso, side aerial with a bobble, wolf jump to straddle 3/4, a little low, bhs loso, knees were good, full turn, gainer full is stuck! Excellent. Got her career high 9.775 last week and this could match. 9.825!

3:57 pm. Moredock, TWU, BB- Bhs loso with bent legs. Nice jumps. Full turn. Front toss down to her bum, kinda like McMillan’s to her knees, but she drops down onto the mat after landing it. Weird fall. Looked like she had it. Double full dismount to finish.

3:55 pm. Brown, Oklahoma, FX- Hit opening pass and second pass, both twists, I didn’t really see either but I’m sure they were fine. Let’s just trust. Rudi to finish.

3:54 pm. Parkin, TWU, BB- Bhs loso with bent knees. Double wolf turn, sigh, it’s rough and she’s basically standing up when she lands it. 1.5 with a hop.

3:51 pm. Jones, Oklahoma, FX- I like that the camera man had to run from beam to floor for this and we got to watch his journey and THEN they switched to a higher camera. Truly brilliant work. 2.5 to punch front. 1.5 to front layout. Solid double pike.

3:40 pm. Jackson, Oklahoma, VT- Yurchenko 1.5 with a big step forward but otherwise good in the air.

3:39 pm. Simpson, TWU, UB- Maloney with bent knees when she catches the high bar to bail, arches over and comes off. Toe-on, decent handstand before giants into her dismount, a full-twisting double layout with a step back. Awesome difficulty for a DII team though!

3:38 pm. Dowell, Oklahoma, VT- Yurchenko 1.5 with a small hop forward.

3:37 pm. Vincent, TWU, UB- Short handstand before archy front giant to piked Jaeger to overshoot, short handstand, double layout is fully piked and she does it to her knees.

3:36 pm. Degouveia, Oklahoma, VT- So far there are two 9.825s and a 9.9 on vault. Jade does a big clean 1.5 with a hop forward.

3:35 pm. Alderman, TWU, UB- Bail with bent knees, but picks it right back up, double layout with a step.

3:28 pm. Huge 49.7 for OU’s bars. Two 10s! I’d say the scoring is def a little insane, they gave a 9.85 to Craus with that huge mistake lol, but yeah…my OU bias is like, “I’m totally okay with this.” Same with my Skinner bias when she gets 9.95s on bars. 48.4 for TWU on vault.

8:37 pm. Skinner gets a 39.75 AA, currently the highest of this weekend, and I think her personal best? The 9.95 on beam was a gift but part of me is like “judges you’re dumb” and the other part of me is like “YAS GET IT SKINNER, BEST GYMNAST IN THE WORLD.”

Lentz, ASU, FX- Hit first two passes, second was 1.5 to front layout, and finishes with a solid double tuck. 9.825

8:35 pm. Skinner, Utah, BB- Bhs loso with a slight check, side aerial to sissone, switch to split jump, switch was good but split is maybe at 170 degrees, full L turn, straddle jump to back tuck is solid, double tuck dismount, great landing, tiny little bounce and her chest slightly down. 9.95!

8:33 pm. Callis, ASU, FX- 2.5 with messy legs in the air and she has to cover up a landing blooper, 1.5 to front layout, a couple leaps are a little short of 180, like the switch half…but the switch ring was nice. 9.6

8:15 pm. Utah is at 148.225 and Arizona State is at 146.275 going into the final rotation.

8:12 pm. Skinner, Utah, FX- There are so many Utah fans here, it’s like being at an Orioles game when the Red Sox are in Baltimore. Double double into a lunge, not as controlled as usual but she covered it up well. Just did a jump that def hit 180. I’m keeping track this time so I can be like “ummm they were fine” when people complain about her leaps if she gets a 10. I feel like it’s coming tonight. 1.5 with slightly loose knees into her double full, excellent landing. Nailed the tucked full-in. 9.95

8:10 pm. Christopherson, ASU, BB- Full turn, front toss to Korbut, beat jump to stag, stuck 1.5. Seriously a GREAT beam rotation for ASU even if the scores don’t really look like it. 9.825

8:06 pm. Szafranski, ASU, BB- Front aerial to Korbut, always my fave. Clean side aerial, switch to beat jump, full turn, Rufolva looks a little awkward when she hits the beam but I don’t even care, it’s the best. Gainer full stuck. God I love her. 9.775

8:04 pm. Merrell, Utah, FX- Short on her pike full-in. 2.5 lands buckled and she still punches out to the front tuck despite getting zero height, sitting it. Rudi. 8.975

8:02 pm. Lentz, ASU, BB- Lovely bhs loso. Standing loso. Full turn. Cat leap to switch side. 1.5 with a big step forward. 9.75

8:00 pm. Lewis, Utah, FX- Great double pike. Front lay front full with a step. Solid double tuck. Excellent routine. 9.925

7:41 pm. Utah leads 98.8 to Arizona State’s 97.4. Utah def lost a lot on vault with their landings…only a 49.175 there and it could’ve been like a 49.4 if they were a little more careful.

7:40 pm. Christopherson, ASU, UB- Caught release, great handstand before bail, which arches over but she fights, into toe shoot, giant full right on the bar into a clean double tuck landed deep with a step. 9.8

7:38 pm. McNatt, Utah, VT- I feel like I remember her doing junior elite in like 2012 or 2013. And that was the last time I saw her until this moment. Yurchenko half on front pike off, bends legs a little and takes a step. 9.75

7:37 pm. Szafranski, ASU, UB- Toe-on to Maloney (leg sep) to pak (in a V), toe half, stuck double layout. Beautiful as always! I can never get over her lines. 9.85

7:29 pm. Rushton, ASU, UB- Huge Tkachev! Just some leg and foot form that’s wonky, fully bent knees when she catches. Catches her bail but then her hand slips and she has to basically fight to regrasp it, but her legs are a mess. Double layout with leg sep and a step. 9.5

7:28 pm. Lee, Utah, VT- Lovely flared FTY, stuck! Looked great from what I saw, from the replay angle it’s just as good as when I first saw it. 9.825

7:22 pm. Utah has a hilarious 49.625 for a good set that the ASU bars judges saw and were like “these routines were gifts to us directly from our lord and savior Jesus Christ.” I…don’t get it. It was a good bars day for them but…no. Just. No. Arizona State, meanwhile, gets a 48.725 on vault.

7:19 pm. Rowe, Utah, UB- Giant full to Tkachev with flexed feet and a slight knee bend when she releases, fights for handstand before the bail, double layout, jumps heels together. 9.9

7:11 pm. Reinstadtler, Utah, UB- Great handstand before toe half to big straddle Jaeger, bail with slight leg sep, short last handstand, full-in with a step on the landing. Her legs going into the dismount looked weird? Probably separated…yeah in the replay you can see one leg flicks out instead of staying tight together with the other leg. 9.875

7:10 pm. Belkoff, ASU, VT- Clean FTY with a small hop back. Very nice for her. Superb in the air, just a slight pike as she comes in to the landing. 9.75

7:01 pm. Time for Arizona State vs Utah!

5:50 pm. Penn State beats Pittsburgh 195.200 to 193.475. I have to say, even with Jeff Thompson getting booted from the program like two minutes ago, PSU really focused on hitting routines and getting their jobs done with no major problem areas counting aside from a few stumbles on floor.

5:48 pm. Huge 197.725 for UCLA and that was with mostly strong and tight judging! The Bruins gave up a ton on landings, especially on vault, but they also had a pretty freaking fabulous day with no major mistakes and the score shows it. Arizona finishes with a 196.275, especially good considering they only put up five on vault and floor.

5:47 pm. Tsang, PSU, FX- Double arabian with a lunge forward. Hit middle pass and double pike well to finish. 9.9

5:46 pm. Laymon, Pitt, BB- Tick tock, hit everything after that, cat leap to straddle side, sissone to loso with a check, another jump series, there are like 40 jumps and leaps in this routine. Gainer pike with a step back. 9.7

5:40 pm. Kocian, UCLA, FX- 2.5 with a big lunge forward. 1.5 to Rudi to stag is nicely controlled. Effortless switch ring. Double pike is a solid enough finish. 9.95, and she’ll go 39.625 in the AA which ties Amelia Hundley for the high so far this week!

Garcia, PSU, FX- Big double tuck. Double pike crashed to her knees. 9.6

5:36 pm. Cipra, UCLA, FX- Big double tuck. Front full front half to straddle to front tuck. Her back roll into the corner before her last pass looks like a mistake lol but it’s choreo. Big rebound back out of her double pike is her only major mistake. 9.9? Okrrr

Brett, Pitt, BB- Good side aerial bhs, full turn, solid 1.5 dismount. 9.725

5:27 pm. Hall, UCLA, FX- 1.5 through to double tuck, great landing. Second pass ends with a front pike and goes a little too far forward. Double pike into a controlled lunge. 9.725

5:14 pm. Petrikis, Pitt, FX- Double pike, hit middle pass, good double tuck, heel is in the OOB area but I don’t see her actually put it down. Uses part of Demi Lovato’s “Confident” which I LOVE. 9.775

5:11 pm. Garcia, PSU, BB- Front aerial beat jump, bhs loso with a form break and her chest down but she fights for it, full turn. Good jumps. Little hop on her gainer full. 9.6

Arizona only putting five up on floor. UCLA leads 148.100 to 146.975. See? Even with LEGITIMATE SCORING (mostly) UCLA will get a really super 197+ if they hit floor. You don’t need trash judging!

5:09 pm. Ohashi, UCLA, BB- Triple series with just the layout today, no full…legs apart throughout. I think her full form is better! But the landing here was a little better. Front aerial, bhs loso layout full stuck. 9.9

7:12 pm. McMurtry, Florida, VT- DTY, lovely. I wouldn’t give it a 10 because there’s a tiny hop back, but if Slocum got a 9.975, this is going 10. Oh, ONLY 9.975!

7:11 pm. Miller, Missouri, UB- Big piked Jaeger, short last handstand, hit the dismount.

Duranczyk, Washington, UB- Jaeger to overshoot, double layout stuck on her toes with her chest down.

Slocum, Florida, VT- handspring front pike half, looked almost stuck, just tiny movement at the end. Her vault was basically this good at EMU and she barely broke 9.9, and the move to Florida brought her to #2 in the nation and she just got a 9.975.

7:04 pm. Alexander, Florida, VT- These leos are kinda different for Florida…all black with a blue like, shield of armor across the chest. Actually reminds me of Kentucky, haha. This girl has more power than anyone in the world, an FTY so big it practically flies outside the arena, which will be a good thing when she learns some control.

7:03 pm. Gowey, Florida, VT- The stream turned on like right after she vaulted.

Rosa, Kentucky, VT- Clean FTY with a small bounce and some leg sep.

Ward, Missouri, UB- Giant full to big Tkachev, bail to toe on gets janky but she doesn’t come off, just back tracks and does the toe circle again to jump to high bar. Hit the dismount well, but that glitch will be a deduction.

7:02 pm. Hyland, Kentucky, VT- Good FTY. Very solid. Perfect leadoff.

6:18 pm. Tonight I’m aiming for Florida vs Missouri, the Kentucky quad, Oklahoma vs Georgia, Alabama vs Boise State, Auburn vs LSU, Stanford vs Oregon State, and the UC Davis quad!

  2. Mossett’s floor routine live was absolutely spellbinding. I re-watched it on the broadcast, but it just couldn’t touch how electrifying it was today. (Of course, that’s always true, but in my limited experience especially true of this particular performance). I really thought she’d get that 10.

  3. Here we go again once again you claim Utah was over scored but ucla was okay with tight scoring and Oklahoma can’t do any wrong they haven’t gotten any gifts give me a break

    • UCLA is usually overscored. Their scoring at home yesterday was much lower than it usually is. Utah’s bars were overscored but everything else was tight for them. Calm down.

      • What are you talking about the two times they are actually scored fairly you claim they aren’t and overscored and how many gifts have Oklahoma lsu gotten this year this is the best I’ve seen makayla look since the us trials she’s been clean controlled let’s give her her due respect Utah has been as good as anyone don’t claim they are the only ones getting gifts

        • I literally talked for 200 hours today about how overscored OU was at TWU. LSU is one of the most overscored teams in the country. So is Florida. So is UCLA. So is Utah. So is Alabama. The top six programs in the country are the most overscored programs in the country.

          MyKayla looks great. But she got a 9.95 on bars — that means a 0.05 deduction — for a routine that had two 0.05 leg separations, her legs fully apart in her Maloney (0.1 deduction), and she landed her dismount with her feet apart (0.05 deduction at least). If she didn’t go to a top program, that would be a 9.75 or a 9.8. All of Utah’s other bar routines were also great, but also way overscored. Just because I say Utah’s routines are overscored doesn’t mean I don’t think other teams are overscored. Utah was the team competing at the moment, lmao, not UCLA or Oklahoma or LSU. Yes, MyKayla looked great, but you don’t get 9.95s and 10s for “looking great.” You get them for hitting deduction-free routines. MyKayla’s fantastic but let’s not pretend that her routines don’t have mistakes she’s not penalized for.

          If you actually read what I say, you’ll see that I also said AJ Jackson got a 9.975 – aka a 10 from one judge – for a floor routine that had two giant steps and a hop, at least 0.3 off. And I talk more about UCLA and LSU’s overscoring than anyone else.

          Sorry you choose to read what you want to read and can’t admit your bias, but you’re also the person who continuously screamed at me for not calling Bailie Key the best gymnast in the world, yelling at me that she’s gonna make the Olympic team. You were DEF right about that. Oh wait, she didn’t even make worlds, lol. So I trust your opinion and your bias about 1%.

  5. So now you’re going to bring bailie into the mix what an ignorant person she’s had to deal with so many injuries and yes be fore these injuries outside of Simone she probably was number 2 so get your facts straight you brought it up

  6. Kmags 17 bye the way I’m not a a relative and maybe you need a magnifying glass because skinner has looked pretty darn good this year and let’s face it she’s been just as good and better at times than Maggie

    • it’s by, not bye. maybe you need a magnifying glass to learn how to spell. Also, this is Lauren’s blog. why don’t you find one that kisses the ground that Skinner walks on, I’m sure there’s plenty. In the meantime, why don’t you let the expert talk about what she knows. have a few seats and take a chill pill.

      • It’s also hilarious considering I literally DO kiss the ground Skinner walks on and when she gets a 9.95 on bars half of me is like *eye roll* but the other half of me is literally like YAS I LOVE SKINNER hahahaha. Like I’m probably the biggest Skinner fan in the world but I also recognize her faults and flaws and am not gonna pretend she’s amazing on bars when she’s literally not.

        • I agree to a point. I think that post trials, she did not handle herself well, and that sort of stuck with me. I also for some reason view the Utah girls to be a bit catty. Just the way they behave on social media and the like. I do find that her form has improved since then, besides the relentless bad toe point

        • Yeah, I agree. I by no means think she is the greatest, both in terms of her attitude and in terms of her gymnastics, but I’m impressed by her work ethic and the fact that she’s always trying to throw the most difficult skills…her vault, beam, and floor in NCAA give her the most difficult AA program of all time, and she hasn’t made any real mistakes once all season which is insane given that gymnasts with 20% of her difficulty fall all the time. So that’s what I love about her, but I also fully recognize every quality that isn’t so admirable!

    • I wasn’t bringing up Bailie…I was bringing up *your* ridiculous yelling and screaming and whining when I insightfully (and correctly) analyzed her chances at making various teams. Guess who was right? Oh, wait, it was me. I wish the best for Bailie and would love to see her back at the elite level but I’m also not ridiculously biased and crazy enough to run around calling her the future 2017 world all-around champion.

She later got injured, forcing her to mix the 2016 selection, but she didn’t make it in 2015 due to a poor performance at camp. This comes straight from her coaches.

  7. I missed Maggie terribly this week! I wasn’t able to watch either of OU’s meets this weekend. I don’t have any of the channels and usually rely on Nastifan to help me out, but she hasn’t uploaded anything since last week, and i know the second one will be impossible to find since it was housed on Flo. I almost considered paying for the service and read terrible reviews about it.

    • Yeah, the Flo streams are almost impossible to reproduce without getting caught…even people there in the crowd were getting yelled at for filming parts of routines on their phones. *eye roll* I pay for Flo for some NCAA months and for Gymnix/Jesolo but for the majority of the year I don’t bother.

      • I was surprised that they even allowed OU gymnastics to film and put some routines on snapchat. I’m curious as to why she hasn’t put up friday’s meet, but maybe it was because it was streamed on the OU pay service

  8. I would like to have what your smoking. The poor performance came from her never healing completely last I checked she tried to come back. Before the injuries her performance spoke for itself. So you weren’t right. She didn’t. Make it to trials because she was injured so stop trying to fool us admit you didn’t care for her

    • She didn’t make it to Olympic trials because she was injured. She made it to worlds trials in 2015 and had multiple falls, not due to injury. You know almost nothing, lol. Bailie was one of my favorite juniors and I thought she was going to be on the worlds team in 2015 but her poor performance at camp took her out of the running, and then her injuries took her out in 2016.

        • She literally came back from the injury that took her out in 2014, did fabulously in the summer of 2015 because she had recovered from that injury, and didn’t make the 2015 worlds team because of falls at camp. I have emails from her coaches as proof but no, believe your story 🙂
