It's Friday and that means it's time for gymnastics. Tonight, I'm live blogging LSU at Florida.
LSU and Florida are two highly ranked SEC gymnastics powerhouses, LSU is currently ranked # 7 and Florida is sitting tight at # 2. This is a home meet for Florida and they are often best at home, much like LSU. But will the Tigers devour the Gators, or will the Tigers get trapped by the strong Gator jaws.

Last week's power rankings was a hit, so I'm doing them again this week.
Again, these aren't the official rankings from Road to Nationals. I am basing my "rankings" on news events, stories, people that are gaining attention and other random things that I find interesting or worth mentioning.
Last week, the power rankings were:
#1 Sophina DeJesus
#2 Judges tightening their scoring practices
#3 Boise State
#4 Line-Up Changes
#5 Everybody's favorite ginger, Sidney Dukes, proving that yes, gingers do have souls.
#6 Ebee Price
#7 Allison Northey and the entire Washington team.

From West Virginia, we go to Washington, where Washington is hosting UCLA.
Last weekend, UCLA won their home meet against Oregon State, debuting some fabulous new athletes and putting Danusia Francis in the all-around for the first time in her collegiate career.
At Utah, Washington came back from a disastrous home meet against Oregon State as well, scoring a season high of 196.250.

So will Washington triumph on their home turf or will UCLA outshine them tonight. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the action from Seattle.

The beam has been a source of contention
for many teams in the NCAA.
Over the past few weeks, I have seen many beam meltdowns. Most recently, UCLA melted down on beam at their meet at Cal. In response I have decided that there should be a cardinal rule for balance beam every NCAA team (every gymnast ever really) must
