Mai Murakami

Old news but I am short on time to actually think of a blog

And I finally sat through Angelina Melnikova ‘s floor win at Europeans. Not bad. Maybe this will be a turning point for her.

Dub Nation. Wooooo. Well not really lol but I like Durant (used to love him) and want him to win a title. Plus Steph is a Red Sox fan so. Just as long as the CAVS WAKE UP AND BEAT THE DAMN CELTICS.

101 reasons I consider College Gymnastics a joke

First year coach, Courtney Kupets will be paid 160 thousand smackaroo’s to run Georgia’s gymnastics program. Yep for the whopping 4 months of work she will make more money then most people make in 5 plus years (I am being generous here I wish.lol)

I wonder how much Suzanne is getting paid.lol

The other 100 reason’s have to do with scoring:)

Here is what Greg Marsden thinks.

( Don’t whine Greg if I could make a forth of my company’s budget I would be rich:)

Suzanne replied to someone on the College board about what her part in this will be..

Last but certainly not least here are what the triple twist twins think about the whole thing. If you want to hear what Kupets had to say in her press conference you can find it here. This link comes from the blog above.

IMO, This is crazy. Giving her the job based on her amazing, albeit overscored gymnastics career in College is ridiculous. Especially with such a well known and successful University. Paying her this much puts her under scrutiny from the start. She will be under pressure from day 1 to win with a group of girls that really don’t have the talent to compete with Oklahoma or LSU or even UCLA.

The thing she has going for her is her name could land some recruits.

I love Suzanne Yoculan. I always have. I never hated Georgia the gymnastics program all through I always dislike the lack of common sense Kupets showed over the years (She did Elite gymnastics and didn’t know what the American cup was.lol) but while I think her pay is bat shit crazy I guess we will have to wait and see if Little Miss Muppet can pull it off. As much as she has always annoyed me, if she has half the success she had as a College and elite gymnast she will be just fine.
