Bit of a stumble for OU on their 2nd floor exercise.
Gators with a bad beam, too.
Baumann sticks a 9.975 beam...good beam for UF. .coming down to OU’s last floor exercise.
OU comes thru, gators lose by 0.300
198.025 for UF.
Is this televised?
I couldn't watch. Was the judging fair or did OU get home cooking?
I can't say I was at a SB Meet & Greet, gotta figure that with each team scoring their best of the season it was just a great meet, if we get our vaults (landings) going we can beat anybody I've seen or read about

I could be showing it now with the chill-bumps all over. Really it was an amazing evening. This team really showed a lot of heart, a lot of fight, a lot of grit and just pure joy. They came in very relaxed.
