    Surprised the defending champs weren't number 1 to begin with.

    We started #1. The first ranking is based on a poll of the coaches. The second and successive polls are based on the average score of meets that have been completed. Some schools started out with some high scores and it took us a few weeks to catch up.

    Gymnastics, as we all know, is heavily biased on their scoring. We started on the road @UCLA and then at Auburn before coming home. At home--we get a bit of home cooking. On the road--not so much.

    Watched the UCLA meet on P12 and the team performed terribly in the opener (yet somehow still eked out a road W), so no surprise they dropped down the rankings to begin with. Clearly they have cleaned it up since and just looking at the lineups, it's obvious this team has the talent to be #1. The concern is depth and the fact that most all of the key contributors are former int'l gymnasts whose bodies are very fragile. Hopefully they can stay injury free.
