If we were making a short list of things I never thought I'd blog about, press coverage of the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championship would be near the top of the list. But, thanks to Deadspin
and Paul Gattis
, that's exactly what I'm doing.
It seems that Gattis has decided to flaunt NCAA rules about blogging from their events. He (along with Deadspin) points out how ridiculous the rules are, and in an act of civil disobedience blogs away.
The more interesting nugget from the article is the discussion about facilities. It seems that Georgia has better and more impressive facilities for men's (and women's) basketball as well as gymnastics. It only reinforces my claim that Mark Gottfried is relatively hamstrung with an outdated facility - when compared to those he's competing against. Auburn's new basketball facility will not make it any easier for Gottfried - or whoever happens to be Bama's coach - when it's completed.
