Temple Men’s Gymnastics Gets the Axe

Temple Men’s Gymnastics Gets the Axe

Though stressful, the countdown to Christmas often culminates in a week-long respite from work. Sometimes, though, bad things happen.

Early Recruiting Announcements Made in College Men’s Gymnastics

I can't recall in the past seeing many gymnasts, if any at all, announcing their college commitments before the early signing period. So far, as of October 30, five gymnasts have publically announced via Twitter and/or Facebook. There may be others, so please don't hesitate to correct me on this. This is a very cool development for college MAG. Usually, the process is battened down as tight as a drum. Thanks to social media, many of our top high school seniors are talking about their college recruiting trips. The naysayers may think otherwise, but this has a [...more]
