I think for LSU, it might have been a little bit of both. That they maybe wanted it "too bad" (for DD, for the seniors) and got tight, and that it might be a coaching issue. In the post-meet interview with Aunt Flo, DD talks about their performance from semifinals and how she already knew before it was even over that it would be so hard to get back to that same level of energy for Super Six. So, maybe she couldn't quite find the words to get the girls to peak again for last night? I don't know, obviously, I wasn't there, but maybe she already knew it would be tough to replicate and was "defeated" in that sense after semis? Literally very much extrapolating here, but that's the feeling I got from that interview.
