They definitely are really good I got to see Kupet put up 2 perfect 10s against I think it was Alabama.

Hmm...i thought college was no where near as good as the elite and pro guys...perfect 10 is pretty darn good.

i heard about her perfect tens. can't wait until i get to go and see her do it live!

college isn't at the same level as elite. it's also scored different, because elite no longer uses the ten system.

basically, you wont see shawn johnson style moves being thrown in college competition

Shocked when are you going to see the Gym Dogs? And yea the elite routines are scored with a perfect 10 type execution thing and then a start value where as college is i think a 9.5 start and then goes from there. The start value can change same as elite if you don't complete a set of skills or make a mistake during a skill.

i know that kupets is a senior so chances are i won't be able to see her. i was there over winter break, but didn't get to catch a meet. but i'll most likely be at pretty much every meet next year that i can get to

I still think the 10 point scale worked better, this whole start value thing throws me off. Also i think it leads to less fair and accurate judging, take the vault ef's as an example

Yea, you won't see Kupet or any of the other great seniors that I can't name atm lol, unless she becomes a coach not a judge lol or something which I very much doubt. I doubt I will be seeing any college gymnastics in person, but I guess watching it in HD on a nice plasma screen works for now lol.

I think that might have been her because she was at "the ranch" with a big boot on her foot.

I think with if everyone had stayed healthy then USA would have won gold in the team final because with only 5 healthy gymnasts in the team the pressure is on everyone to perform

Yeah, then we would have the two powerful ones an nastia with her graceful routines. China all seemed to have people in the middle, not very powerful but pretty graceful.

Yea, they had entertaining floor routines, makes me think of the floor routine by the opener on floor for the Gym Dogs. She does the best floor routine i've ever seen.
