I also wanted to add that Andrew Gonzales has switched coaches, he told me he is now being coached under Frank Carroll.

:eek: How many students does Frank Carroll have now?

I was surprised about the US men getting the short stick with the Grand Prix assignments. Despite not having a guaranteed event, Grant Hochstein was majorly robbed IMO and should've at least got 1 event.

As for Dornbush and Mahbanoozadeh, while their seasons weren't great they were decent enough for an invitation, at least more deserving than Alexander Kazakov, Jeremy Ten or even fellow american Stephen Carriere all who did get invited.

Now all three are stuck in skating limbo :( (also known as Senior B events:D).

Dornbush is still age eligible for JGP.

I was bored today so I decided to come up with my own rankings using US Nationals 2010 results combined with summer results scores. I placed the qualifiers for the tiers in parentheses. There's no exact science to how I placed them within the tiers- I took into account last season's international results to some degree for that. Summer scores are listed next to their names- thanks to the IJS Scoretracker for the easy access to those scores!

Summer Rankings thru August 8, 2010

TOP TIER (TOP 6 @ 2010 or 200+ score)
1. Jeremy Abbott
2. Ryan Bradley
3. Adam Rippon
4. Keegan Messing 209
5. Brandon Mroz

TIER 2 (TOP 12 @ 2010 or 180+ score)
6 Armin Mahbanoozadeh 193
7 Richard Dornbush 191
8 Stephen Carriere 191
9 Jason Brown 180
10 Ross Miner (intl results exception)
11 Grant Hochstein 166
12 Jason Wong 167
13 Jonathan Cassar 149

TIER 3 (2010 Nats or 150+ score)
14 Parker Pennington 174
15 Alex Johnson 174
16 Tommy Steenberg 170
17 William Brewster 167
18 Joshua Farris 156

There haven't been any videos that I know of, but Jeremy supposedly gave very impressive performances at Champs Camp. :encore:

6 U.S. men -- Abbott, Rippon, Mroz, Miner, Hochstein and Carriere (who had a "cyst-like formation on [his] ankle" removed and wasn't able to skate or show his programs) -- attended Champs Camp in Colorado Springs this past weekend with the other U.S Grand Prix skaters. Various news and photos can be found in the Champs Camp thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=74787

If any of these skaters qualify for the JGP Final, will that give them a bye to Nats? Pacs is looking awfully packed (pardon the pun).

Yes. Keegan Messing and Ricky Dornbush (Pacific Coast) and Joshua Farris (Mids) are the Senior level men currently assigned on the JGP. I've heard that Jason Brown (Mids) may be staying Junior, but don't know if he tested up or not before the Sept. 1st deadline.

Here's my (unofficial) list of Senior men who currently have a bye through Sectionals in November to 2011 Nationals.

Bye to 2011 Nationals for placing top 5 at 2010 Nationals: Abbott, Lysacek (if he competes), Bradley (if he competes), Rippon.

Bye through Sectionals to Nationals due to their GP assignment(s):
Mroz & Miner (China), Carriere & Mahbanoozadeh (Skate America).

Break down by section:
Eastern - Rippon, Mahbanoozadeh, Miner
Midwestern - Abbott, Lysacek, Bradley, Mroz
Pacific Coast - no byes at this time

Mroz, for example, may have to do Regionals in October if there are more than 4 Senior men registered in Southwesterns (I count 5 right now). More on this topic later.

Lysacek is not competing this season, Sylvia.

Bradley is still undecided, but that was August 19 when he told me. Now I am out of the loop, because the Sept 1 deadline has passed.

Golden West results:

1 Richard Dornbush
All Year FSC 206.25 1 1
2 Sean Rabbitt
Glacier Falls FSC 171.59 2 3
3 Douglas Razzano
Coyotes SC of AZ 164.70 5 2
4 Andrew Gonzales
All Year FSC 163.26 4 4
5 Jonathan Cassar
All Year FSC 159.39 6 5
6 Christopher Caluza
All Year FSC 158.92 3 6
7 Robert Przepioski
Peninsula FSC 114.28 7 7

WD Luis Hernandez
Mexico FS Federation
WD Austin Kanallakan
Los Angeles FSC

Caluza fell on footwork and his triple lutz. Andrew told me he doubled his salchow and he fell on another jump. I don't know anything about Cassar's skate, but my heart is broken for him :(
