With so many coaching changes happening around the NCAA this season, many names have been in the conversation for getting an upgrade. These might be standout DII coaches or assistants that have proved their worth. But either way, they’re individuals we think could make a splash as a head coach at a bigger-name school.

It's almost a given at this point that the majority of teams will hold a pink meet supporting breast cancer. While some teams succeed in their mission of bringing their leotard into this venture, others... Not so much.
The criteria is the same as normal meets except school spirit is replaced by pink meet spirit. And to refresh your memory on the other criteria: up to three points for design; two points for fabric, sparkle, etc.; and two points for spirit; three points for overall appearance. After assigning points to each category, we’ll tally up the scores and average them with the previous week’s. So by the end of the season, we’ll know for sure which team has the best leotards (according to us) and which teams not so much. We want to know what you thought too (or if we forgot one of your favorites from this weekend)! Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter. And make sure to vote in our poll at the bottom of the page to make your opinion heard in the fan vote, new this season.

Buckle up gym fans! We’re in for another big SEC showdown at the Gainesville regional, featuring conference-mates No. 3 Florida, No. 10 Georgia and No. 15 Missouri as the top three seeds. Joining them will be No. 30 New Hampshire, No. 33 Penn State and No. 35 North Carolina, all teams who are capable of solid scores but have had inconsistencies left and right. Many of these teams have already faced each other at least once this season, so almost all of them know what to expect out of their opponents. This big rematch-fest may get really interesting really quickly.
Don’t forget to enter your postseason predictions in the 2017 NCAA Gym Bracket Challenge! The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 31 at 7 p.m. ET.
