I tried coming to the board last night during Super Six but it was down, and it's finally back up. A few thoughts about last night...
So glad I woke up in the middle of the night for this... Obviously thrilled for OU, and I would have given a right kidney to be there in the stands with everybody. Maybe next year... The Sooners were just outstanding from the get go, and ran away with the title after their first two rotations. They were undeniable. I knew they would be better than in semis, but I didn't expect them to just be so dominant and uncatchable. What a fantastic way to close out their undefeated season. I wish I had been a fly on the wall during that team meeting after semifinals, and what KJ said to turn them around and have them come back out so strong.
Bummed for LSU especially after their incredible showing in the semifinal, but they just couldn't repeat that performance and find these landings that could have allowed them to hang near OU. I kind of wish it had been more of a head to head battle between OU and LSU (although maybe my stress level and blood pressure wouldn't have liked that), but I'm glad they pulled through on beam to finish second.
Florida looked awesome, and I really thought they had that second place in the bag until LSU murdered beam. The tumbling on floor from that back end of the lineup is ridiculous. They lose 0 routines, so the Gators will be quite dangerous next year with hopefully Dagen and Fassbender back as well.
UCLA really needs to up its vault difficulty if it wants to win in the next few seasons. Or at least stick all these Yurchenko fulls. Big weakness when contending with the likes of OU, LSU and UF. So glad PPL FINALLY got her 10.0 on beam, about time.
Also heartbroken about Bama's implosion right from the start. But Duckworth is a class-act, and I just love everything she tells the girls and the camera... "Gymnastics is what we do, but it's not who we are. This meet doesn't define us." What a great role model, and this makes me root for Bama a little harder.
