Discussion in 'College Cheerleading, NCATA, & STUNT' started by SJUcheer_2015, Mar 12, 2013.
This is kind of related to the safety deduction comments, and might rustle some feathers...but holy cow, maybe some of these teams should spend some more time on stunt technique and less on practicing shimmies, snaps, and head bobs. Yikes.
some (very) casual observations:
1. YAY Umaine! back in finals!
2. WHERE IS UNH?!
3. What on earth happened to Kennesaw State?!
4. Does anyone know if the guy on SUNY Orange who jumped and ended their routine in a split is back?
When did UMaine start going to Daytona? No UMass Amherst either
I really hope people hit tomorrow. Today was just awful. I haven't seen everyone but outside of Navarro no one looked really good. Yes there was talent and yes some hard skills... but gosh... I can't think of a single team I looked at that if you asked them if they were satisfied with how they performed they would say 'yes'.
Well... maybe UTSA. I see you San Antonio.
They've been going for at least four years.
I feel like Daytona is pissed that HPU isn't there

SO PROUD of my friends on South Carolina All Girl! I hope they bring it tomorrow!
does anyone know how far off the feed is in the ocean center postings? i want to watch finals tomorrow (friday) and their in ocean center... i gotta say most intermediate all girl teams 1 were falling all over the place on bandstand today (thursday).. ugg. including my daughters team.. but luckily we advanced.. way to go ECU CLUB CHEER>. rock out your first year! WOOT WOOT!
Any baskets with guy flyers? Thanks!
Lindenwood University Division II Large Coed
Definitely. Guys flying in baskets are pretty common in the NCA, not so much in UCA.
Don't forget California Baptist University in AG2. They were SO clean...they crapped bleach all over the floor! Love their execution in skills and transitions!
So obviously a lot of teams had bad days yesterday, but where do we draw the line between a bad day and attempting skills that are too advanced for them? There's a lot of comments about teams being in divisions that maybe they shouldn't be, but no one is saying Louisville shouldn't be doing what they're attempting - that just gets chalked up to bad day. And they were probably at the top of the list of most deductions.
There are some schools struggling with straight up extensions and one leg stunts...and then they go and throw a back tuck basket. And some that aren't competing in intermediate, yet have NONE of the skills required to be in the other division.... from the jumps, to tumbling, to pyramid to flat out everything. What is the point? You can also look at these teams and tell that they lack the proper technique...its flat out obvious that they are doing things they aren't ready for.
With Louisville you can see the technique is there... but it was a mess...and I personally think its a old fashioned case of trying to do too much and keeping up with the competition/ shock and awe......and it backfired. I don't think OSU's routine looked as difficult as what UofL attempted...but OSU still had the higher raw. Don't get me wrong, everything that happened could have just been a one time fluke and they could have been hitting that routine in Lexington like there was no tomorrow...and if they come out today and own it, I will be super impressed....
And I think with people knowing the caliber of the UofL coaches that they give them the benefit of the doubt that SURELY they didn't ship them off to Daytona with a routine they couldn't hit.
