Is it really week 6? Didn't NCAA season just start like, yesterday? Time sure flies. Even thought Groundhog Day was Friday, ole' Puxatawney Phil predicted six more weeks of gymnastics excellence. 

Ole' Phil didn't predict the winner of the national title... just yet. 

Week 6 is the half way point of the season and after this week, the rankings will be officially based on RQS (regional qualifying score) so expect some shifts in the rankings when the week is over. 

Here are some meets to look forward to this weekend:

# 9 Alabama @ #5 Florida

Florida is doing the usual Florida things and kicking ass and taking names. Alabama has been taking a slow and steady approach. They haven't been making huge waves, and even though they're ranked lower than would be expected, they have consistently remained there. With all the 10's flying around at the UCLA/Oklahoma meet, Florida might just make sure the Gymternet's favorite judge, Carol is back to throw a few crack 10's their way.

Illinois @ Minnesota

While these aren't the show-runners of Florida and LSU and all the SEC sparkles, Minnesota has been making a name for itself with strong Freshmen such as Lexy Ramler who is taking the Big 10 by the horns this year and basically being amazing.  Even though this is during the confluence of every other Friday meet in existence, maybe it's time to throw the Big10 a little Friday love.

# 17 Arizona State @ # 2 Utah

It's another weekend at the Jon Huntsman Center in Salt Lake City. This is a Pac12 meet up between the once and future national champs, Utah and a team on the rise, Arizona State. While Utah will always bring their A game, the nation is really keen on the underdogs of ASU, who are seeing some daylight after years of darkness. Freshman Cairo Leonard-Baker has been drawing some attention the Sun-Devils way. And while the other teams have Olympians, Anne Kuhm of France as a freshman allows ASU to say "yeah, we have an amazing Olympian too."

# 21 George Washington, #27 West Virginia @ #12 Denver

Denver will have their meet streaming on FloGymnastics week as they are in a tri-meet against everyone's favorite hipster team, George Washington and their conference companion, West Virginia. Denver won their quad meet against BYU, Ball State and Bowling Green last weekend with a high 196.75, Denver's looking towards a 197 plus to get them in a good ranking position for RQS. Fingers crossed that the bars situation is figured out this week.

Maddie, who trains at Great American Gymnastics Express, aka "GAGE" explained she came to the decision to retire due to a nagging injury that prevented her from training at the elite level.

I love NCAA gymnastics.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
