In the third and final installment of our preseason previews recap, we take a look at Alabama, California, Denver, Georgia and Penn State's fan showcases. With less than two weeks to go until the first competition of the 2016 season, it's crunch time.
The Crimson Tide held an open practice for fans before leaving for the holidays. While the team ran through a mock meet, it also took things easy as to not get hurt before the regular season begins in less than two weeks. Lauren Beers, coming off double ankle surgery over the off season, looked almost back to 100% while Kiana Winston looked like this will be her breakout year. Aja Sims, a bars and beam contributor for the Tide, had shoulder surgery over the summer and will most likely just do beam as well as floor in 2016. The freshmen also got a chance to train in a more-pressured environment than a typical day of practice with Armbrecht, Guerra, Huang and Giancroce with the most lineup potential. Finally, Katie Bailey, in and out most of the 2015 season due to back spasms, was looking healthy and ready for a comeback season.

With a little under a month left until the 2016 NCAA gymnastics season is finally here, it's that time again for us to guess how things will end up way too early. Like last time, we've brought in some of the gymternet's most well-known personalities to take a look at how fall training went for teams and judge which teams might be competing the final night of the season and which might be taking home the top prize. Now to reintroduce you to our pickers... Lauren from The Gymternet, Spencer from The Balance Beam Situation and Emily and Elizabeth from NCAA Gym News. So without further ado, here are our "Still Way Too Early Super Six Predictions."
