Ok, new format this year. The bottom four teams compete first, and then the top four teams follow. Same judges, winner-takes-all tonight in Little Rock.
The Tides' session -- with Florida, Georgia and LSU -- begins at 6 p.m.
Live scoring: http://www.secdigitalnetwork.com/portals/3/2012sec_files/2013sec.htm

Well, to be honest, if our Lovely Ladies aren't in it, I could care less...
Whoever down voted me for not caring about gymnastics outside of Bama's Lovely Ladies... if you aren't female, I motion that your man card be permamently revoked. lol
After two rotations the scores are Alabama 98.80; LSU 99.15; UF 98.875; UGA 98.850
Tide has done beam and bars. Has floor next, then vault
Tide scores 49.550 on floor.
It's very, very tight:
Alabama going to vault, Florida to floor, LSU to beam
Wow - Kayla Williams 9.975

49.550 vault is the top score of the day on that event ... is it enough?
Florida has already posted four scores of 9.9 or better on floor.
Looks like the Gators held on to win the SEC Meet again.
Bama unofficially finishes at 197.900 (unless I'm reading this wrong.)
If someone can beat that, good for them. But that's a hell of a meet going into regionals.
That is correct - 197.9 is a very good score, and the Tide's best.
Florida 198.0 -- that's tight. Wins meet
I really thought this would be sort of a down year after the back-to-back titles, rebuilding for next year.
But this team has gotten so much better over the course of the year. If they can make a run and win another, it may be Patterson's best job yet (which is saying something after 35+ years.)
Tough break for the ladies to lose again to UF in the SEC meet . . . But it didn't turn out too bad for them last year in the NCAAs! Here's to a repeat performance from last year!
Florida will falter in the Super Six as usual.
Bama turns it on when the postseason begins, as evidenced by a score that 90% of the time wins the SEC meet.
Biggest LOL of the night is Aub's gymnastics official Twitter account saying "Team posts Program SEC Record, Places 5th at SEC Championship"
"Congrats on our best performance ever being worse than half the league tonight."
But...but they aren't even the best team in the conference. How could they be the best team in the nation?!?
