Yeah, maybe she'll choose another college if they cut gymnastics but the team did quite well last year so I dunno if that's likely.

I loved the link to the tree site as well lol, the first story made me rofl Razz

Well in one of her interviews she said she was going to go to an Ivy League College, but idk now because I also did see the article with Stanford in it.

But I hope she goes to an Ivy League, preferably University of Pennsylvania, becuase it's right across the river from where I live. Very Happy

Of course, if she wants a REAL education, with a degree valued across the WHOLE world, she neeeds to come to Oxford or Cambridge.
Now Cambridge..only 100 miles from me:D....................

I think Stanford would be good for Shawn Smile
Also money isnt a promblem for Shawn since she has gone pro and is making millions....
She also cant get a gymnastics scholarship since you cant compete Collegiate after you go pro NCAA rules...
Plus Ivana Hong would like to here also and it has been mentioned that Shawn and Ivana are very close...
Shawns stated that Ivana is the person she is closest to on the national team...

Sadly I don't think she would be able to coach a team for many years, most of the coaches are way older than Shawn would be. Even the girls on the team would mostly be a couple years older than her. College gymnastics is nothing like the elite level buts its still entertaining lol. I watch the Utah Utes and Georgia Gym Dogs whenever I can.

heck yeah georgia! go dawgs!

i thought that it would be weird, getting coached by someone who is 4 years younger than you (for the senior team members). I also imagine that coaching gymnastics is a pretty difficult thing that takes a lot of experience to do well.

Don't most colleges have student coaches assisting with sports? I believe they do at least in football.

I could see Shawn assisting in that way, especially since she probably has a lot more experience then most college gymnasts. Though she may get them killed, teaching them her moves. Wink

Heads up? So THAT'S where I went wrong!
I was watching my ski tips, and when I looked up it was WAY too late. No major damage though, except maybe to my pride Sad

if shawn would go to college she woulnt be on the gymnastics team. since she turned elite she cant compete at a college level. but in an interview she said she would love to coach the stanford team. i think that would be great!

Actually she turned pro...
You can still compete College after you go elite
But once you start making $$$$ off of it you cant compete collegiate
For example Samantha, and Bridget can compete collegiate even though there elite because they havent made a penny off of it

would there be any incentive for competing in college after going elite?
i haven't watched that much gymnastics until recently, but from what i've seen the talent gap between elite and college is huge.

Yea, if you are already an elite gymnast, why would you even consider competing in the collegiate level, you would destroy people.

You would be doing 5x's the difficulty then other gymnasts.
