    Gators have a total of 4 Gymnastics NCs. It just happens that 2 of them were in the early 80s before the NCAA recognized gymnastics as a sport. They were in the AIAW. Same thing in the end though. Go Gators!

    Tougher even to believe that no one knew they weren't supposed to use the tie-breaker. No reason to have all of those athletes/coaches/fans confused for 5 minutes before posting/announcing the results. Natty Champs!

    According to one the gymnastics boards--the chair of the gymnastics committee had to go figure out what the rules said. Evidently no one had ever envisioned the Super 6 ending in a tie!!

    Supposedly we would have the title alone had the tie-break been invoked. But it is ok to share especially since it adds another team to those that have won a title! Now 6 schools! Up from 4 before last year!

    Just for a cherry on top, Bridget Sloan won the uneven bars event title today. Her 2nd individual event title (beam last year), along with last year's individual all-around win and, oh yeah, two team titles!

    She's putting together a resume that going to stack up against just about any athlete to come through here (in any sport) if she can stay healthy and keep producing at this pace for the next 2 years.

    I don't know what the specific tie-breaker was, but I have no problems with ties in sports where there is not direct opposition.

    Go GATORS!

    Tie break in gymnastics, evidently, is to count the 6th score. Evidently the only place it is used is advancing from the regionals (when only 2 teams can come out of a region) and in the semi's to determine rotations in the Super 6.

    It was used Friday night to break our tie with bama and give us the preferred Olympic rotation.
