Who else is great at this? I watched two Cal meets-- away at UCLA and home against Oklahoma. My gosh, that team with Toni Ann out for the season and other significant injuries still put together two joyous meets filled with quality gymnastics. Justin and Liz clearly can get 9.85-9.9 routines out of gymnasts who weren't big-name recruits. Beam for example-- just gorgeous work and they're building well into post-season.
And Bird and Resnick at Boise State have made a splash recently by piercing into the top tier by getting their recruits to perform routines that can go toe-to-toe with Alabama *at* Alabama.
I know posters on this board have expressed very negative opinions about Libby, but at least in these past two seasons, the squads are very good late in the season. I love Kaji so I went and watched her routines as a high school senior last year. My gosh, she's soooo much a better performer a year later at Iowa.
Of course, there are many other programs *not* filled with A+ name recognition recruits that are climbing the ranks. SUU, GW stand out at 18 and 19 with many more powerhouse programs from Big-10, SEC, and PAC-12 behind them. Who else are you all noticing?
