Mini Men's UTRS: The Best Scores of 2014




The All Around is going to do their handy dandy rankings this year for the women. If they take on the men, I will stop my UTRS (Uncle Tim Ranking System). Again, for those who care, "UTRS" is pronounced "uterus."

As per usual, take these rankings with a grain of salt. (Pro Tip: Never bet your life savings based on my numbers–or my predictions for that matter.) Judging varies from meet to meet, and as you'll see, the judges at the Houston National Invitational were either the most benevolent human beings ever known to the face of the planet OR they smoking a little something something.

P.S.

Yes, I have seen John Orozco's 16.650 routine!



And yes, the FIG's Code of Points was in effect at this meet……………

Nothing against John Orozco. I'm proud of his comeback from a knee injury. But when I compare his 16.650 routine to Fabian Hambuechen's 16.350 routine
I can't help but think that the Houston judges had a flask of whiskey tucked into their socks.

Go home, judges, you're drunk.

  2. Smoking heavy duty crack is the only explanation I can think of for the HNI scores. John O is good but still had inflated scores. I hate that the US judges do this because it encourages unrealistic expectations. John if you are reading this don't rest on your laurels. You can do even better.

  3. I don't understand, if John's D score was 6.6 and his final score was 16.650 that equals a 10.05 e score. There must have been bonuses - or am I missing something?
