This and That
Rebecca Bross on bars at camp. Sadly, Bross looks on track to be the heartbroken kid of 2012.
Danna Durante is rumored to be the new head coach at UGA after many A-List coaches turned it down due to the toxic nature of a program eager to win with a former head coach still overshadowing it. The situation is Athens is a mess, as they did not anticipate the lack of interest in the head coaching position. Danna is young, having previously been an assistant at Nebraska and briefly serving as the head coach at Cal. This is quite the step up and there will be tons of pressure with a lot to prove. It is ultimately good for the program to start fresh. The Gym Dogs need a big makeover after struggling to find an identity for three years. The program also needs a more media-friendly coach to energize the fan base. Cal's future remains uncertain. As for Jay and Julie, they are rumored to be coaching at Kim Arnold Arenas' gym, which they have an ownership interest in. Kim Arnold Arenas daughter, Elena Arenas, is quite promising in terms of a future high level JO/NCAA athlete.
