"BYU's Natalie Eyre competes on the balance beam during a gymnastics meet
against BYU at the Marriott Center in Provo on Friday. The U. defeated BYU",
this is the caption under picture of BYU gymnast along with the story. I
thought they had a meet against Utah???
Congrats!!! You got your number 1 wish for your athletic program this year. Your
main bread winner for your athletic program is still doing well.
First, review what NCAA stands for, especially the third letter. Look up nearly
all collegiate programs on their website and you will find "sports" under the
title "Athletics". You sound foolish with your "traditional view" of what is
and is not a sport. Last, go to one meet and then see if you still believe this
isn't a sport.
So does shopping.
re: GretskyJust because you can't do it doesn't mean it's not a
sport. You are one of 0.01% of the population who believes that.
The meet last night was great. We attended with our granddaughters and enjoyed
watching these fantastic athletes. The sheer physical power of each event, the
remarkable self-discipline, the personal focus in demanding competition, and the
great team spirit were inspiring.Congratulations to the Utes and
their great coaches. They represent their fine university extraordinarily
well.Congratulations to the Cougars. Their improvement is
noticeable and they have our support and respect.
Gymnastics is without a question a sport; it takes a toll physically,
emotionally and mentally. Anyone who cannot see that, has obviously not been
exposed to the sport very often. That being said, I am SO proud of my Cougars!
They are making improvements every meet, fixing little details, and its only a
matter of time before everyone starts realizing how good of a team they really
are! You looked beautiful out there tonight ladies keep up the good work, and
"Utah Ute gymnasts outperform BYU Cougars." No surprise there. Well done,
BYU is improving and should be proud of how they performed. However, the U is
still the U. BYU didn't have a chance against the Red Rocks. The falls by the
U on the beam were certainly disappointing. The U has a lot of work to do
before tournament time. They need to be scoring in the 196's not theh 195's.
However, Deetscreek and Robarts were a joy to watch last night. Very
At least we have GYMNASTICS!
let's get hockey in college up to division 1 status in this state. gymnastics is
not really a sport. it's an athletic event and that is all. it's like figure
skating and the BCS football scene - all up to the judges according to their
whims and tradional views.
