Let's hope we get another great U.S. pair soon! We need it.

And so does the world.

IMO, I/Z skated during a time when the field was deep with consistent talent (especially those classical Russian pairs). If they were skating today, I believe they would be on the podium at Worlds. JMO.

They have a world bronze medal from 2002.

I concur! The last time an American pair captured my attention was way back in the days of I/Z- especially Kyoko Ina. She was a quality pairs skater. It gradually seemed like Mclaughlin/brubaker were set to fill their shoes but...that's too bad.

The last great American pair was Tai & Randy.

No love for Watson and Oppegard at least?

Their mirrored jumpings and height difference bothered me. They were also much slower than the pairs above them.

I think Jill and Burt Lancon would've made a much better pair if he hadn't decided to turn pro.

Not only that, but they had a chance of winning gold that year, but had a pretty flawed LP from what I recall.

I have to agree with thier statement. Tai & Randy were great as well as Kyoko & John, Keauna & Rockne had the potential to be great but it sadly ended too soon. Brooke & Ben got saddled with injuries unfortunately. The rest weren't great in my opinion.

I wish Caydee and Jeremy the best of luck this season :cheer2:

After his own four years with Moskvina I bet John has quite a few good things he can pass on to his students. And working closely with Artur has to be a plus too.

I/Z grew in their performance with Moskvina but under the code of points all of Kyoko jumps would have been downgraded. Almost every jump ( above 2A) she did had a spin on the ground ( hooked landing).

Well hopefully they have better scores at Skate America.. Not so hot in Japan :( What a shame.

:eek: What was that "death spiral" Caydee and Jeremy attempted in their short?! :eek: Even Peter Curruthers said "they have to work on that." I'm hoping for some reason she just couldn't get down into the position. Caught an edge or something. Her butt in the air is not acceptable.
