    If Gracie Gold were competing in US Nationals as a senior instead of a junior, I think she would run Mirai Nagasu, Alissa Czisny, Rachael Flatt, etc very close. Indeed, I think she would at least medal.

    So would Gracie get Gold?

    Yes, Gracie Gold would get gold. Too bad she won't be at Worlds, because she'll win that one too by a landslide with a world record score. Go Gracie !!!

    I don't know, but the general public will think it is Michelle Kwan.

    You might want to watch out for Angela Wang she skated a great long program last night at Broadmoor fire and ice. She landed 3F3T and 3Z3T2L.

    I think that if Gracie were skating as a senior, the pressure would get to the poor girl, I mean she's only competing as a junior and it seems like everyone's hopes and then some are all on her.

    I suppose Michelle Yamaguchi and Kristy Kwan might be in contention.

    I feel so bad for Gracie. SHE'S COMPETING AT NATIONALS AS A JUNIOR FOLKS, that's the reality and it's not going to change so can we stop declaring her the winner of everything between now and Sochi? All this premature hype is going to give the poor girl a panic attack I fear :scream:.

    But she can't live up to our expectations if she doesn't know what they are. Because I'm sure she reads FSU religiously and takes everything we say to heart. So, Gracie, you'd better start kicking some Russian wonder-baby ass RIGHT NOW. And don't stop until you're on top of that Sochi podium. :p

    Yay, a new USFSA hopeful to hype at FSU.

    I'm sure Gracie will win 10 national titles starting in 2013 and win 10 World Titles and two Olympic Gold Medals making her the best US Skater ever. Also, she will cure cancer, aids, and end world hunger. After retiring from skating, medicine, and philanthropy her talk show "Gossipin' with Gracie" will receive the highest ratings of any show ever, including Oprah. Have I left anything out?

    ;)

    Michelle Kwans H.O.F. induction as U.S. Champion! :cheer: It would be fitting that her HOF ceremony at Nationals is also her 10th US title.

    You Forgot the nobel peace prize and actually she'll break Sonja's record, so it'll be 4 gold olympic medals. Not sure why you didn't think she could be as good as Sonja.

    I heard she's going to land a 4A/4L combo in her fourth Olympics. And win a Pulitzer for her memoir.
