It's his best jump, he's been having a bit of trouble with it due to a growth spurt... but he's been somewhat better with it this season so far.

I just don't see how something can be a "signature" if it is a move required to be competitive as a senior and not different in any way.

I am sorry I used that word then, just a bad choice of words.

But also, a lot of senior men don't have a 3a. I am not sure Caluza has his, and Gonzales just mastered his over the summer.

I don't think Caluza and Gonzales will be challenging for the podium at Nationals, anyway, triple Axel or not.

I agree that gold and silver is between Rippon and Abbott, and bronze will be contested between 6-7 different guys. Here's how they stack up this season:

Jeremy Abbott, NHK Trophy (218.19)
Brandon Mroz, SW Regionals (198.56)
Armin Mahbanoozadeh, Nebelhorn (196.17)
Richard Dornbush, JGP Germany (195.23)
Joshua Farris, JGP Sheffield (187.74)
Keegan Messing, JGP Romania (187.38)
Ross Miner, NHK Trophy (186.62)
Alex Johnson, SW Regionals (184.60)

Grant Hochstein, Finlandia Trophy (183.51)
Andrew Gonzales, SWP Regionals (182.11)
Jason Brown, JGP Courchevel (180.57)
Jason Wong, Nebelhorn, (179.55)
Sean Rabbitt, SWP Regionals (176.29)
Jonathan Cassar, Finlandia Trophy (171.95)
Scott Dyer, SA Regionals (168.24)
William Brewster, Coupe de Nice (167.67)

Adam Rippon scored 166+ for his Japan Open free skate, and he competes this week at Skate Canada.

Only one U.S. man for CoR and TEB?

I didn't say they were, I was just pointing it out.

The Ryan Bradley thread says Ryan is redoing his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ex as an LP. Perhaps Ryan (dressed as Willie Wonka) will be at Nationals! (If so, I hope he grabs the 3rd spot.)

I expect Rippon to win Nationals easily. It is pretty clear by now Abbott will never be a serious contender at the World level but he will probably be 2nd. 3rd place is wide open.

Abbott always skates well at Nationals. I think it will be very, very close between him and Adam. Both are comparable in spins/fw/skating skills/etc, but Jeremy will have the advantage if he hits the quad toe.

Either way, it's exciting to have two strong skaters representing the U.S., even after the Lysacek/Weir years.

Maybe now we can look forward to the Rippon/Abbott years? I hope so. I can see NBC cooking up that one!

And did you say the same thing about Maria Butyrskaya, Shizuka Arakawa, and Miki Ando?
