    I was bored today so I decided to come up with my own rankings using US Nationals 2010 results combined with summer results scores. I placed the qualifiers for the tiers in parentheses. There's no exact science to how I placed them within the tiers- I took into account last season's international results to some degree for that. Summer scores are listed next to their names- thanks to the IJS Scoretracker for the easy access to those scores!

    Summer Rankings thru August 8, 2010

    TOP TIER (TOP 6 @ 2010 or 200+ score)
    1. Jeremy Abbott
    2. Ryan Bradley
    3. Adam Rippon
    4. Keegan Messing 209
    5. Brandon Mroz

    TIER 2 (TOP 12 @ 2010 or 180+ score)
    6 Armin Mahbanoozadeh 193
    7 Richard Dornbush 191
    8 Stephen Carriere 191
    9 Jason Brown 180
    10 Ross Miner (intl results exception)
    11 Grant Hochstein 166
    12 Jason Wong 167
    13 Jonathan Cassar 149

    TIER 3 (2010 Nats or 150+ score)
    14 Parker Pennington 174
    15 Alex Johnson 174
    16 Tommy Steenberg 170
    17 William Brewster 167
    18 Joshua Farris 156
    19 Dennis Phan
    20 Doug Razzano
    21 Alex Gonzales
    22 Wesley Campbell

    There haven't been any videos that I know of, but Jeremy supposedly gave very impressive performances at Champs Camp.

    If any of these skaters qualify for the JGP Final, will that give them a bye to Nats? Pacs is looking awfully packed (pardon the pun).

    Yes. Keegan Messing and Ricky Dornbush (Pacific Coast) and Joshua Farris (Mids) are the Senior level men currently assigned on the JGP. I've heard that Jason Brown (Mids) may be staying Junior, but don't know if he tested up or not before the Sept. 1st deadline.

    Here's my (unofficial) list of Senior men who currently have a bye through Sectionals in November to 2011 Nationals.

    Bye to 2011 Nationals for placing top 5 at 2010 Nationals: Abbott, Lysacek (if he competes), Bradley (if he competes), Rippon.

    Bye through Sectionals to Nationals due to their GP assignment(s):
    Mroz & Miner (China), Carriere & Mahbanoozadeh (Skate America).

    Break down by section:
    Eastern - Rippon, Mahbanoozadeh, Miner
    Midwestern - Abbott, Lysacek, Bradley, Mroz
    Pacific Coast - no byes at this time

    Mroz, for example, may have to do Regionals in October if there are more than 4 Senior men registered in Southwesterns (I count 5 right now). More on this topic later.

    Lysacek is not competing this season, Sylvia.

    Bradley is still undecided, but that was August 19 when he told me. Now I am out of the loop, because the Sept 1 deadline has passed.

    Golden West results:

    1 Richard Dornbush
    All Year FSC 206.25 1 1
    2 Sean Rabbitt
    Glacier Falls FSC 171.59 2 3
    3 Douglas Razzano
    Coyotes SC of AZ 164.70 5 2
    4 Andrew Gonzales
    All Year FSC 163.26 4 4
    5 Jonathan Cassar
    All Year FSC 159.39 6 5
    6 Christopher Caluza
    All Year FSC 158.92 3 6
    7 Robert Przepioski
    Peninsula FSC 114.28 7 7

    WD Luis Hernandez
    Mexico FS Federation
    WD Austin Kanallakan
    Los Angeles FSC

    Caluza fell on footwork and his triple lutz. Andrew told me he doubled his salchow and he fell on another jump. I don't know anything about Cassar's skate, but my heart is broken for him

    Cassar improved by 10 points over his previous season best score. Don't be too heartbroken for him yet!

    Well, its good that he's improving through the season.

    I'm not expecting either Lysacek or Bradley to compete at 2011 Nationals, but since neither has officially announced this as fact yet, I used "(if he competes)" in my post above as a courtesy to both.

    By my current count, 4 of the 9 Regionals could end up holding a Senior Men's event this year (if more than 4 register) -- New England, North Atlantic, Southwest, and Southwest Pacific. But nothing is certain right now because it's still unknown who may have switched clubs by the Sept. 1st deadline.

    Ryan Bradley is participating in " Kings on Ice" this November- together with Plushenko, Lambiel and Weir. They are touring Russian provinces ( no shows in Moscow/St. Petersburg as of yet)
    Which probably means Ryan will not compete this year, but it also means that his abilities as a show skater are recognized- between Disson shows and Kings on Ice he is quite in demand, which is great

    Cassar is being coached by Frank now. Him and Andrew Gonzales have been rooming together in Lake Arrowhead.

    And Sylvia, I apologize, I keep forgetting Evan is leaving the door to 2011 Nationals open

    I know that he is coached by Frank now. But skaters don't always switch clubs/sections when they switch coaches. So I was hoping I might still get to see him.

    Was moving to the SWP a good idea? Pretty tough crowd out here.
    Happy Skating!

    He was announced as representing the All Year FSC at Golden West, so I believe that he is officially in SWP.
    Happy Skating!

    Eliot Halverson (EGL region/Mids section) has decided to take the 2010-11 season off from competition due to a recurrence of his back injury , according to the latest edition of Sarah and Drew's "Inside Edge" blog -- article link is posted here: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...96&postcount=1

    Dennis Phan (SWP region/Coasts) reportedly is joining one of the "Holiday on Ice" tours in Europe -- I'm told that he informed people of this news during the Golden West club competition in L.A. this past weekend.
