UCA and NCA are the two established competitions for collegiate cheer. UCA is arguably stronger depending on preference, but they are both legit, run by the same company, and some schools chose participation based on the academic calender (UCA nationals is in January.) The criticism, as I understand it, is that Michigan competes in the Intermediate division with skill restrictions that puts them in a lower tier than other IA teams, ostensibly for safety concerns but I don't know the factors/rationale. Agree with other posters that it would be helpful to reconsider going forward.

stadium I definitely saw some glistening in his eyes on the jumbotron right before he spoke. The video and crowd were amazing and it was a special moment. The only part I thought was awkward was when he thanked Mr. Brandon and people kind of booed. I think he was a little taken aback by that but overall it was really touching and heartfelt. It wouldn't surprise me if they had him go out there by himself to draw attention to his celebrity. Regardless, he looked very distinguished walking out- very impressive!

1 ticket. How much are you asking?
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Mainly it's||
just for sponsorships and they tour occasionally, such as after the Olympics. The Pro Gymnastics Challenge was started this year, but it's sort of more like one of those ice skating exhibitions rather than a pro tournament in golf or tennis or pretty much any other sport.

Stacey and Adrian each had a routine featured on Friday (Day 1 of the competition), where again it was the Sam show. Great promotion and PR for UM because it was obvious these guys were having so much more fun than the elite gymnasts and most of the other collegiates as well. Stacey and Sam seem to have a "Denard and Roundtree in the Crisler stands" kind of vibe about them. Will be great to follow them at Worlds in October.

Just a public service announcement because I stumbled upon UTL currently on BTN with 8 min left. How can it be this exciting even though I know what happens?
p.s. Heiko you crack me up.

nothing to do with anything but I just called a banking company and a pleasant southern sounding woman transferred me to specialist Michael Cox. I could barely stiffle a giggle, or make it through my message when his voice mail said Mike Cox. Of course, I had to immediately log in and tell all of you.
Cool story sis=)
|3 years 37 weeks ago||The event||
I attended had ample time for Q & A after the coaches spoke. Dave Brandon fielded most of the questions, so address any sport-specific inquiries to the coach himself. You can also take a picture/ask a question prior to the presentation. Just be very aware when they arrive and jump in line quick. Each coach had an informal group waiting around them and interestingly, I'd say Red was the most popular, or maybe he just took more time to speak substantively with each person.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||I heard||
he is actually pretty raw. Uncured, anyway.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Look, no||
doubt he was over-thinking himself in the second half. But, hopefully by learning from it he's now set up the residual effect--many more wins in the years to come. Glad our coaches are super smart and humble.
My takeaway is that this piece is great for recruiting. I would suit up for this guy.
Thanks, Heiko, for making recovery from dental surgery a little more enjoyable this afternoon. Of course the bubble screen interlude made me laugh, well ok drool. So glad you are a Michigan man.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||So amazing||
and I haven't even read this yet. I feel like I need to savor it over a bottle of wine or one of the fancy beers you guys are always talking about. Way to go Heiko
|3 years 42 weeks ago||I think||
perhaps I'm on mgoblog too much when my reaction while opening this post was "Oooh I hope it's the one with the vagina."
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Actually it's||
entirely possible that Sam will come back next year and then stick around for another 2 in order to prepare for the 2016 Olympics. In men's gymnastics it's common for guys to train with their college teams in between Olympic quads. He could train elsewhere (Olympic Training Center, etc.) but given his close relationship with coach Kurt Golder, you may just see him around Ann Arbor for a while longer.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I met||
Trey's grandparents after the game Monday night. They were lovely and seemed more grateful than disappointed. They said they were possibly a bit relieved it was over because he leaves everything on the court and they didn't want him to get hurt. Commence wild speculation from my cool story sis...
|3 years 47 weeks ago||yep, and||
I lost some respect after that mid-court hand smacking altercation. Not nice.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Sorry guys||
I won't back down. Not after all the Kate Upton around here.
DG is like Taye Diggs, only hotter.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Thanks MGV||
He is too cute.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Disagree re: toughness||
They made some clutch shots to stay in it when Indiana went all Zeller-palooza. No getting around it, our size doesn't quite match up. With foul trouble, I have to think so many substitutions on our Bigs has to throw off the rhythm. No excuses, the game was ours for the taking. Young team, will learn, etc.

Can I get "F*ck yeah?" from the white M headband guy? yes, yes I can.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Agreed, but it's possible||
They may be aware of the risk but just don't think their student would be subject to it. No one wants to think their kid/player would be in the bottom few spots.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Pretty sure||
NTI is fine with a quick in-and-out involving Kate Upton...
