Congratulations, you will have graduated to the regional finals. In our first ultimate, Oklahoma shall be among the many many (many) prime groups that can attempt to increase their effective-but-not-amazing efficiency from the semifinal with a view to reestablish nationwide dominance—and shall be closely favored to take action. A repeat of Oklahoma’s semifinal efficiency would nearly certainly be sufficient to qualify right here, however they’ve extra to present on a number of occasions and didn’t even 198 within the semifinal.

The actual battle is predicted to be between Alabama and Kentucky, which as soon as once more switched their hierarchy from SECs (when Alabama got here out forward) within the regional semifinal with Kentucky beating Alabama by a tenth this time, thanks largely to beam. With a aggressive 197.350 within the semifinal that just about matched what Kentucky and Alabama did, Ohio State may also view itself as on this one, although if we discovered something from the semifinals, it was that evaluating precise scores from two periods goes to be a idiot’s errand.

The judges additionally swap up their occasions for at the moment, so it’s not going to be the identical panel that judged that occasion within the semifinal.

Starting on beam, Kentucky could have an pressing rotation to start out, and outscoring Alabama’s vault could be a very good early indicator for them. Ohio State begins on flooring, usually the high-scoring occasion, so if at the moment goes to be a factor, they’ll should be prime 2 after the primary rotation.

What was it you have been saying about 4 judges that means tighter scores?

Kentucky goes 49.375 on flooring, an OK rating however not the ground complete they have been hoping for after Ohio State’s 49.475, which is letting everybody in. Ohio State shall be happier with their 49.375 on vault.

Alabama 49.400 on bars was the very best rating of the rotation, which begins bridging the hole slightly, however they’ll have to do extra on beam subsequent.

And Oklahoma. It’s 49.075 with a counting fall (!) due to course it’s. They’ll stay forward of Alabama and are only a tenth behind Ohio State, so it’s in all probability fantastic for them so long as they hit regular rotations within the ultimate two.

After 2:

After 3:
Oklahoma 148.425
Kentucky 148.400
Ohio State 148.275
Alabama 148.100

Everybody nonetheless in it, which is form of stunning to me that Alabama remains to be proper on this, and heading to flooring, since they form of struggled on each vault and beam. Ohio State doing all the pieces attainable to remain in, however should convert on beam now.

Rotation 4

Sievers – VT – OU – Y1.5, medium step ahead, hit. 9.875

QUALIFIED: Oklahoma 198.050, Kentucky 197.850
ELIMINATED: Ohio State 197.725, Alabama 197.650

Kentucky delivered and I believe was the rightful crew to advance from this session (truly stunned it bought as shut because it did). Alabama simply had extra errors, particularly on the vault landings and with the leg-up probabilities on beam. Huge program file efficiency from Ohio State, couldn’t actually have requested for extra from their efficiency.

So now individually we’re taking a look at Payton Harris going for AA, Blanco going for bars, Flatley going for beam, Elexis Edwards for flooring, and I believe Williams of Arkansas for vault?

I believe the massive speaking level shall be whether or not it must be attainable to rely a fall on beam and nonetheless beat groups which might be nonetheless robust who hit, however……a fall is 5 tenths. Is Oklahoma higher than the opposite groups right here by 5 tenths mixed on vault, bars, and flooring? Or .167 higher per occasion? In all probability yeah. To allow them to win with a counting fall. But in addition was the scoring insane? Positively yeah.

Oklahoma was quite a bit higher than everybody else on vault and bars. Oklahoma’s flooring scores seemed actually elevated to me, as did Alabama’s coming after them. That was a really ‘WE SORRY ABOUT BEAM” flooring rotation.

OK UCLA regional, you will have huge sneakers to fill. And doubtless received’t. BUT WHAT IF IT DID.

9.925 for Schreiber to take Missouri to 49.400 on beam. They’re tied with UCLA after one rotation, which is huge for the competitiveness of this meet, however UCLA additionally was slightly blah at first of that rotation so Missouri may need had a possibility to go forward on their finest occasion.

After 1
Utah 49.575

UCLA 49.400
Washington 49.150
