Hot Topic Debate: Should we Change the Scoring Format in NCAA Women's Gymnastics?

In a pre-NCAA Championships interview, Miss Val of UCLA turned the tables and posed an interesting question to the fans of Gymnastike: Should we change the rules and move to a 5-up, 5-count or 6-up, 6-count format in women's NCAA Gymnastics?
