Meet The Bruins
What do we make of Val's long-awaited routines? How is Val's latest botox touch up? Is she looking glam enough for the season?
After a rough freshman year, I'm not convinced that Mattie will be a break out star, though we could see her in the floor lineup a tad more if she can manage a double tuck or pike this year. While she is clearly one of the team's more gifted dancers, I find this routine to be over ambitious to the point where it borders on 'sloppy hot mess' territory. For a girl who struggles with her tumbling, I have visions of Mattie falling on her head and backside as she rushes to get the bridge up when winded.
Will Danusia erase the visions of watching Zam dance?
Val's wet dream as an elite. I do enjoy Val's new way of moving into the corner and staring into the crowd. We now hop on two feet to appear hip-hop friendly for our more urban-minded recruits. The stain of Ariana Berlin lives on. Ariana allowed Val to start thinking of herself as a modern hip hop dancer and the rest of us need to suffer for it.
I've never loved so much about a gymnast and dreaded them performing on floor so much. I adore how even she herself is continually embarrassed by her own floor routines.
"Best eyes in the NCAA." Someone got wise and started kissing Miss Val's ass this year.
