    The Reeds bumped Tobias/Stagniunas (Skate America) from the Top 24 SB list with their WTT score. T/S were ahead of K/G-S after the World Championships, with the Reeds down the list.

    The Announcement is contradictory, in that it says one the one hand that all of the Top 24 SB without two get a second in ranking order (assuming there aren't three from their country already, they aren't already assigned, etc.), but on the other hand, allows the host to choose from among the top five, regardless of ranking, and the hosts generally choose what is most expedient, i.e., lower-ranked skaters who aren't competition for their skaters and who are cheap to transport. Not only that, they don't have to offer a spot to everyone in the original top five before going to the next five: they replace the chosen skater with the newest, lowest-ranked skater to join the group of five.

    However, this season, 11 of the Top 24 don't have a second spot, with only four host spots left to assign, and with no guarantee that USFS will give its host spot to Hubbell/Donohue, and even if the hosts wanted to go below Top 24 SB and China decides to toss back its third spot, it will take three picks before the Top five isn't made entirely of teams in the top 24 SB, and more if USFS, the French Fed, and the Russian Fed don't assign their TBA's to skaters in this group. (The French Fed, i.e., DG, has its own criteria du jour for whether they'll even fill their TBA or toss it back into the pool, but Russia would be digging deep -- Pushkash/Guerriero are SB 39 -- to find a senior team outside Stepanova/Bukin, Monko/Khaliavin, or Sinitsina/Zhiganshin to which to assign the host pick.)

    Before any host TBAs are assigned, the first group of five is:

    Coomes/Buckland (SB 13, TEB)
    Stepanova/Bukin (SB 14, SC)
    Monko/Khaliavin (SB 15, TEB)
    Hubbell/Donohue (SB 17, SC)
    Sinitsina/Zhiganshin (SB 18, TEB)

    Next two, in case USFS and the Russian Fed assign TBA's from that group, are:

    Zlobina/Sitnikov (SB 19, SA)
    Papadakis/Cizeron (SB 20, RC)

    Of course, the French Fed might choose P/C for TEB, in which case

    Kolbe/Caruso (SB 21, JPN) could round out the first five.

    Then there's still

    Guignard/Fabbri (SB 22, CAN) and Heekin-Canedy/Dun (SB 23, RUS).

    To put it in perspective, last season there were two substitutions after the host TBAs were assigned (Orford/Williams for Nazarova/Nikitin and Zlovina/Sitnikov for Zahorski/Miart), because Tobias/Stagniunas were not replaced at Skate America. It wasn't even an Olympic season last year, and this year I'd expect skaters to hold onto their spots for dear life if for no other reason than to be well-placed for the next Olympic cycle. China is the only country with GP spots (only to CoC) that has to qualify at Nebelhorn; it could decide to toss even two spots back in if no one qualifies for the Olympics at Nebelhorn, which could be a nail-biter. (Does Neil Brown have CZE citizenship?)

    T/S were in 23rd and K/G-S were 24th before WTT, with both the Reeds and M/K achieving higher scores at WTT.

    Oh, I had forgotten that Monko/Khaliavin weren't already Top 24 before WTT and that the Reeds weren't the only one with the big score at WTT.

    Interesting that WTT TES don't count towards the new GP technical minimums.

    In any case, the chances of K/G-S getting into a group with a chance to be chosen are not great, given the number of Top 24 SB teams with one, since there were no splits or retirements and all 24 are senior teams this year. Pairs on the alternates lists, are "lucky" in that three of the Top 24 teams and SB 26 remain junior, while SB 25 split. (They have two split couples at the top of the list, though.)

    Thanks for the complete breakdown, kwanfan1818! I didn't understand the complexity of the remaining selection process. USFS still has an open option for the third slot/host pick, though, right?

    That is quite interesting and IMO makes it a bit contradictory to have counted the scores in the rankings. (If they hadn't, then K/G-S would have had an initial GP assignment, C/M could be given the SA host pick and I would be a happy camper) ;) I miss the "old days" with more slots for all the talent!

    USFS has one open TBA spot. They can assign it to any age-eligible US team that doesn't already have two. Minimum scores (total or technical) aren't required for host picks.

    WTT is 50/50:

    It can be used as a top 24 SB score or for the GP total minimum score.
    It can't be used for the GP technical minimums and doesn't earn WS points.

    Wow! Impressive! I guess only behind D/W, C/B, Shibs? They're ranked ahead of H/D? I thought their ISU SB score was behind H/D, K/G-S,not in top 24 ?

    Pretty sure China isn't going to give up the third dance slot. Yiyi Zhang/Nan Wu who was at JW for the past seasons have aged out of junior. They are likely to get that third spot. Even if China doesn't get an Olympics dance spot, one team is still going to be doing Olympics Team Event if I'm correct. France is definitely going to pick P/C for the TBA.

    I think the SA TBA will go to Lynn and Logan. I don't know why they had picked the Shibs for a SA spot when they are most certainly guaranteed two elsewhere. A/E should have gotten that spot and Lynn/Logan the third. All that aside, I fully believe A/E is the fourth best U.S. team at the moment.

    One result of spreading the GP wealth and limiting Senior B participation is that only the very top teams end up with high SB's and WS and the second GP chance.

    In 2011-12, USFS assigned D/W and had two TBD's to SA in the initial selection. The Shibs were assigned to back-to-back CoC and NHK. USFS later assigned H/D and Cannuscio/Lorello to SA. Returning split couples Chock/Bates (SC, TEB) and Samuelson/Gilles (CoC) were assigned from the top of the alternates list. That season, only groups of three (now five) were created after the Top 24 got a second, and the only non-host/non-returning split couple substitution was Tobias/Stagniunas for SA; they were SB 24.

    In 2012-13, USFS assigned D/W and K/G-S and had one TBA to SA in the initial selection. The Shibs and H/D (Top 12 at 2013 Worlds) were assigned to two (RC, NHK and SC, TEB), and Chock/Bates got CoC (20 SB). USFS later assigned Cannuscio/McManus to the TBA spot. Host picks no longer had to earn the GP (total) minimum score. No US teams were chosen from the alternates list, although C/B were in the Top Five and Top 24 SB. The next US couple down the SB list was K/G-S, and they were seven slots away from making the Top Five group.

    I'm assuming the Shibs were invited to SA this year because they train in the Detroit area, and they could draw a local crowd especially from their college classmates, as well as giving TV and marketing the "former Worlds bronze medalists" angle. It also get them early feedback in the Olympic season, lets them stay home with minimum interruption to their training schedule, and gives them a break to absorb the feedback and make any tweaks before Japan, where they're also popular and are competing with Davis/White. By definition, Zoueva has to be at four of six GP events, which is better than five or six of six; she may have had some influence there as well. It's interesting the C/B got the worst travel schedule of the US teams, going first to China, then to Russia, but at least they're three weeks apart, too.

    I don't see USFS pushing anyone new into the next Olympic cycle: they've already got the Shibs, C/B, and H/D (SC) in line with A/E on the way up and proven internationally, and while teams certainly improve, none of the other US teams have made much of a splash internationally or are highly competitive for an Olympic spot the way the field stands now. There's a boatload of points between K/L-S (5th US Nats) and the podium and another big gap between them and C/M (6th US Nats). Coming off a Jr. National championship and a Jr. World bronze, USFS might want to invest in A/E this year to introduce them to a wider TV audience and get them as much attention from senior international judging panels as possible, since there would have to be a rash of withdrawals for them to even make the Top Five alternates. A/E are also local, and it would be a good thing to support another area coaching team, especially one as accomplished as Krylova and Camerlengo. With no returning split couples in Dance, H/D have a reasonable shot to get an alternates spot if USFS is willing to use its influence, assuming there are at least a couple of withdrawals over the course of the GP season.

    My observation is not exactly applicable to this thread...but staying Junior Internationally sets you up extremely well for the following season, despite the temptation to test the Senior waters.
    Placements in JGP will be higher than if you moved to the Senior GP (if still age eligible for JGP)..and builds both JGP and JGPF ( more entries that Sr GP) points.
    It is the reasoning behind some well placed National skaters staying Junior this season.
    It is a huge benefit in the post Olympic season.

    I'm confused with you, TanithandBenFan, but I wouldn't get your hopes up. If K/G-S were going to get the SA spot, I think it would have been assigned with all the other TBAs so that they could have benefited from attending Champs Camp.

    IIRC (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) before they changed the camp to be for Grand Prix skaters only, it included ALL Team A and B senior level athletes. It probably was a budget issue, but it's only a handful of additional skaters and it really is too bad that decision was made. IMO, all of the international competitors could benefit from what is understood to be comprehensive evaluations and feedback plus there has to be an associated psychological boost as well.

    IIRC, when Champs Camp included all A and B athletes, they didn't do program evaluations. It was basically a team-building and informational event. Then after a few years, they made it more like a training camp. In the current format, it would probably be difficult to do evaluations for every Team A and B athlete/team in the time allotted. Currently, non-GP ISP skaters can receive program evaluations at selected summer comps and I believe there are also off-ice physical evaluations and seminars there, too. So all Team A and B skaters basically receive the same attention, just at different places. Since GP skaters are not required to do a summer comp (they previously had evals at their home rink), it makes sense to invite them to one place.

    For D/W everyone must bring chocolate to the arena. Eat upon hearing the line "Lots of chocolate for me to eat. . . " (if it makes it into the score). I think they'll do great with these choices, although Schez is definitely overused. Hopefully (well, there's a minuscule bit of hope) they'll use at least SOME lesser-used parts of it.

    :blah: Chock/Bates. Yet another Les Mis.

    For an icy cold arena I would more likely need lots of coal making lots of heat

    ^^^ Thanks! I've edited in their info on FB. Hopefully H&D have submitted their updated Short Dance music to USFS to be added to their Team USA bio. ETA: That is, assuming the SD & FD music listed on their FB as of 8/23 received the "final stamp of approval" at Champs Camp. :)

    Heh, yes, but WITH the chocolate. And one enormous chair wouldn't hurt, but that might be expensive. (Although, duh, that song isn't even listed, argh.)

    So we get a Twilight FD from the Parsons? :rofl: I'm not familiar with that soundtrack, but I can't wait to see it.

    ^Oh boy, I didn't even see that. Depending on how they play it, it could be right up there with the most.uncomfortable.sibling.programs.EVER. (And it's not like the Twilight relationship between the two main characters is exactly healthy to begin with!)
