    Stephen Neal did it back in 1999. Won all three.

    I think Honeycutt is a bit under the radar, I think he'll give Simaz quite the challenge.

    Again, is there any word on how long Simaz will be out?

    Will we see Oliver vs Steiber before NCAAs?

    Neal did not win Olympic gold but he did win worlds, the hodge and a national title.

    Yojo Uetake came back to Oklahoma State his Junior year with an Olympic Gold Medal. Then won two more NCAA Titles and another Olympic Gold Medal before retiring from competition.

    Stephen Neal did this is 1999 (NCAA and World, not sure about the Hodge)

    EDIT- Oops I missed that Jensen already posted this.

    Since the Hodge was first awarded in 1995, no, Smitty didn't win it.

    I think McD is the frontrunner after JO's subpar showing at the All-Star.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...
