    Samuelson & Bates move to Canton (threads merged)

    On the main page under last post topics, this thread comes up as "Samuelson and Bates split..." I was when I first saw it.

    But the news of coaching change isn't all that great either. Why does everyone go to Shpilband and Zoueva? Do all the U.S. ice dancers love Michigan that much?

    Well they were already in Michigan, and aren't they UM students? I suppose they would want to stay in Michigan? So this makes sense from that point of view.

    And Evan's roommates (Charlie White, Alex Shibutani) already train with Shpilband/Zoueva. It's going to make for some interesting competition at Nats this coming year, with at least 4 top teams (Samuelson/Bates, Davis/White, Shibutani/Shibutani, Chock/Zuerlein) all in the Shpilband/Zoueva camp.

    I'd have had a HEART ATTACK seeing this title from the main page, but I had a head-ups about the coaching change so I realized it must be that. Or I'd be dead. But some other folks might not have that advantage. So maybe we can merge the two threads and keep the OTHER THREAD TITLE

    Marina/Igor now have more or less a monopoly at Arctic Edge. I don't think it's actually good for ice dance in the US.

    SORRY. Yeesh. It's impossible to know how the thread title will show up on the main page.

    Its really kind of distressing. We need more than one coaching team and top teams from different coaches. How did we end up like this?

    i.e Zueva/Shpilband continue their ascent on world domination.



    Nah, I guess it's good for them, although how much coaching time will they actually get?! As their 3rd team, I wonder how much Z/S will actually care about them? I dunno, maybe I'm being a little cynical. I hope at least they get more interesting programmes, because I thought what S/B put out this year was pretty dull.

    I had heard that S/B were having issues with their old coaches. Canton was the only real option because of school, but I wonder what will happen long term. Something is going to have to give. From their bios, it looks like Evan has one more year of college and Emily has two, so if they waited to move again until she graduates, they would only have a year-and-a-half with a new coach before the next Olympics.
