Actually Missouri won the regional and Geogia tied for 2nd with Oregon State, with OSU winning the tie breaker.


They're not "Utes", they're "Red Rocks". Right?


The mascot of the University of Utah is the Utes. The Red Rocks is a nickname we have for our gymnastics team. It is not uncommon to see them referred to as either one, or both, in an article.


1. The red rock vs. ute name debate is old and overdone. get over it already.
2. The performance on the beam was very encouraging. I think that going into nationals, there isn't a lot of pressure on Utah to capture the title. That rests on Florida, Alabama, and OU. So I expect the girls to be relaxed and perform well.


Congratulations to the "UTAH UTES RED ROCKS!"
You did a great job and all your fans are thrilled you hit routines when it mattered most. You have been a fun "roller coaster" to watch. Good luck at Nationals!

Re: anonymous...What is with your fascination with this whole Utes vs Red Rocks theme? Isn't this like the fifth time this year you've tried that comment to make Ute fans mad? Didn't work again!


Oh, I think if they fail life will still go on somehow.....


Failure is the only option for the Ute football and basketball program.
