I thought they tried to call this meet the "Big Flip-Off" but I guess that name didn't stick. GO BEARS!

Nastia Liukin is going to at the Big Meet as a part of a pre-meet VIP reception.

No.7 Cal Men's Gymnastics vs. No.3 Stanfurd

When: 1 PM PT

TV: Pac-12 Networks


Bears start a new era with a new Associate Head Coach in Brett McClure, who spent the last three years down at the Farm as a 'Furd assistant coach. The Bears are ranked 7th in the country in the preseason, behind teams such as today's opponent.

It is too late for people seeing this for the first time on this post, but the team is having a pre-meet VIP event which includes several Olympians such as Nastia Liukin and others such as Blaine Wilson, John Macready, Kevin Tan, Sho Nakamori.

Against 'Furd, the Bears hold a all time record of 127-81-2 in the series (let's just ignore the more recent streak).

Here is a nice video of the 2013 Cal season:

The Cal squad is quite young this year with 14 sophomores and freshmen amongst the veterans (wait, there are that many guys on the team?). Perhaps the youngsters might not know any better and defy the already fairly high preseason expectations.

GO BEARS!
