    ISU Gymnasts Moves Up To No. 14 in National Rankings

    AMES, Iowa—The Iowa State gymnastics team continued its steady ascent up the NCAA national rankings, as the Cyclones climbed three spots this week to No. 14. The ranking is the highest ISU has been since it was No. 13 on March 5, 2007.

    The Cyclones are coming off a Jan. 22 meet at No. 11 Missouri, where ISU tallied its highest team score since 2007 with a 196.000.

    Regular-season NCAA gymnastics rankings are determined based on averaging team scores tabulated from the entire campaign.

    Can somebody that follows gymnastics closely tell me if this is really something all that great and special? It seems like all the Pollard haters on the board like to point out ISU losing our gymnastics coach and then the fall off of the program as one of his major mistakes here, but a 14 ranking wouldn't seem to be much of a fall off at all to me.

    I guess I am curious also, but not for the same reasons.

    ISU went 0-7 in the Big 12 last year in gymnastics. 0-7. But we ended up ranked at the end of the year. Is the Big 12 that good that finishing dead last is still worthy of ranking, or are there just no good WGYM programs?

    Except for the fact the coach he replaced is currently #2 in the country...

    I think someone said in another post that it doesn't matter if you win or lose the meet, its how many points you score. If you think about it, each jump, move and spin has can get a certain amount of points out of so many. Everyone is graded on the same scale so even though you lose, you may still score a lot of points which can be compared to all teams.

    Like chris said... its not based off w-l record. Its based off scores that are attained during a meet... and yes the big 12 is pretty good. Last year was the closest that the big 12 regional had been in awhile.
