College sports, yeah. I think college equestrian is the same way (we don’t have it but Auburn, Georgia, SoCar and A&M do). You’ve kind of touched on one of my pet peeves. To me, if you have to have a judge tell you who won, it ain’t a sport, it’s an athletic competition. Those girls are unbelievable athletes but having to wait for the judges to post the score is worse than sitting through a replay at a football game. At least at the football game you generally know what happened and are waiting for the zebras to confirm it.
Another weird thing about gymnastics is that even though you have a meet against another team (Misery in this case), winning and losing really doesn’t matter. The rankings are solely based on scores. You could lose every meet but hang up huge scores and wind up ranked ahead of every team that beat you.
