1:04:30 ish Simone gives her speech. The award went to Ezekiel Elliot.
Rhonda Faehn will be leaving Florida and taking on the role of Senior VP of the women’s program. The internet seems to think this means Rhonda will be taking over Marta’s role when she finally decides to retire and take her commie ways back to Romania ( Hey it could happen if the pay is right) The gymternet also seems to be happy about it thinking she will be great at the role and I am still trying to figure out why people think this will work out?
What does a College coach know about being the head of the entire Elite Gymnastics program? Yes Rhonda made a world team and was the alternate that cost the US a team medal at the 88 Olympics but how does taking a College program and turning it into a winner because the judges were blatantly cheating make her a great candidate to run the US program?
She very well could do a good job but what she has done as a College coach (which is essentially the poor mans 92 gymnastics way of doing things) to merit this blind faith everyone has in her?
The great gymnasts Florida had on their roster were already made in Marta’s system. To me this is just Marta taking one of her ex gymnasts and giving her the key to the city based majorly on her once coaching the gymnast.
Every single one of Florida’s win was undeserved ( Counting a fall, the gift of a tie and Utah was robbed)
