    Bye-Bye Byes: Gators Tumble Into New NCAA Format
    UF Chris Harry / Senior Writer

    NCAA gymnastics' 2019 regional and championship rounds will have four teams competing, rather than six, meaning shorter meets with no bye rotations
    .
    So long, "Super Six."
    Hello, "Four on the Floor."
    "I like it," UF coach Jenny Rowland said. "Obviously, our association has been in favor of it for a while now."
    Try to follow.
    Nine teams will be at four regional sites — Athens, Ga., Baton Rouge, La., Ann Arbor, Mich., and Corvallis, Ore. — where competition begins with a first-round dual between the eighth- and ninth-seeded teams from each region. Think NCAA basketball in Dayton, Ohio. A "play-in" round, if you will. The survivor will advance into Friday's regional round of eight, which will be staged with day/night double sessions at each venue. Two teams from each session will move on to Saturday's final round, with the two highest-scoring teams from that day heading to Fort Worth for the NCAA championships April 19-20.
    With eight teams in the national semifinals and four in the championship round, that means all four teams will be in action during all four rotations — and no byes.
    Better for the student-athletes, better for the fans and (this is key, of course) better for television, especially in the championship round.

    Iowa beat Arizona last night in the "play-in" match. They are part of the Gator quad tonight.

    I cannot figure out when the match takes place as I am in London. Will someone post results so I can see it here when I wake tomorrow?

    Very odd format this year. I very much liked the previous tourney format. Hopefully this one will be enjoyable too

    I think this one makes very little sense! We have to compete twice to advance. More stress on the bodies! Just seems dangerous!

    In the case of Iowa--they could (very doubtful but possible) end up competing three days in a row.

    Florida didn't do well on vault and missed a lot of landings. After first rotation in 3rd place. OSU did extremely well on their first and worse event beam, so the crowd is really hyped now.

    OSU 49.5
    STAN 49.225
    UF 49.075

    Florida Advances to NCAA Corvallis Regional Final
    Mary Howard
    Florida led all teams in Friday's NCAA Corvallis Regional semifinal action with its 197.50. Now Florida moves ahead to contend for a NCAA Championships' berth in Saturday's NCAA Regional final.

    Florida in Friday's Semifinal II:
    Florida drew the Olympic rotation for Friday's semifinal round. The Gators were led on vault by two equaling their collegiate bests. Freshman Savannah Schoenherr won the day's vault title at 9.90 and junior Sierra Alexander shared second (9.875).

    Florida equaled the meet's team high balance beam total with its 49.50 Friday. Senior Alicia Boren equaled her collegiate best of 9.95 to share the day's beam win. Florida's Alyssa Baumann and Skaggs also posted beam marks of 9.90 to tie for fourth overall.

    Five was enough for Florida in Friday's floor competition. The Gators used only five gymnasts in its floor rotation to post the day's top floor team total of 49.50 and each of those five marks ranking among Friday's top eight floor scores with both sessions combined. Thomas shared the floor win at 9.95, while Boren and Nya Reed were among a tie for fourth at 9.90.

    I’m pretty shocked right now. Way too much talent on this team to not advance.

    Total shock. But I had a bad feeling all season about having such a young squad and scheduling only 9 meets, while the other top teams had 11 or even 12 meets. And every single one of them peaked at the end of the season.

    Jenny is great at recruiting, great at regular seasons, but has underwhelmed in post seasons. This was the most stark example. She need to retool to have us peaking later, we peaked in February this year.

    We were the only top 8 seed not to advance.

    The awesome spring sports season rolls on.
    Women’s tennis is an uphill climb to make ncaas, baseball is 4-8 in conference, men’s golf is ranked in the 30’s, softball lost their first three conference series, Lacrosse is 7-6 and not a lock for post season...

    Might finally be the year our director’s cup top 10 streak ends. Definitely going to be the tightest squeeze in many years.
