    Nooooo!

    I loved her determination and spunk.

    I thought they were coming along as a team quite well.

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised by another American pair breaking up, but :wall:.

    W..T..F.

    NEVER saw this coming, not in a million years. They looked so improved.

    The battle for US Pair #2 will be verrrrry interesting this year.

    I wonder if something happened with Mary Beth. She's still so young and it seems odd to step away from the sport less than 2 years from the Olympics especially when you have a great shot at making the team. Also when you already have programs that you've competed this season.

    I wonder if Rockne can get a new partner in the next 17 days and salvage his season?

    Who's taking bets on his next partner being Ashley Cain?

    Wouldn't Ashley be way too tall for him?

    This could never work with their height similarity.

    I hope they're both ok, and I wish them the best whatever they do next. I'm disappointed, because i really enjoyed seeing the progress they've made so far and I was looking forward to seeing them this year.

    Not excited about D/C two-time American champions.

    Rockne only has 17 days to register for Sectionals. He can't be too picky at this point. He might have to make it work. Not skating competitively before the year of the Olympics is a pretty sure bet he won't be there.

    Cain would be a good selection, if she's willing.

    Can we nip this talk in the bud...Rockne is Short for a male pair skater and Ashley is tall for a female pair skater...do the math!

    I know I shouldn't be shocked about a US pair breaking up, but this was definitely surprising.

    I wish them both all the best.

    Isn't there any leeway from USFS? I mean, he's a two time national champion and his partnership ended abruptly right before the season started. It's not unthinkable that he could find a good partner and still do Nationals with some kind of buy for members of split teams who would have had a buy based on last year's results, or some such, but having that be a person he finds by the end of this month is unreasonable.
