I think if all four had skated well, the team still would have been Boitano and
Davis. Mitchell and Eldredge were probably seen as also-rans, and Davis as the future. Boitano would have made the team even if he screwed up royally. He was basically given a pass to the Olys. I was told that he was really pissed off that the judges didn't give him the national title that year, because he felt that a skater with his name and of his caliber laid down a program that was worthy of a national championship going into the Olys. And that it diminished his 'aura' which affected his performance at the Olys. Typical drama queen stuff.
It needs to be noted that 1994 season was really the start of the Elvis Era. You needed two 3axels and likely a quad. Mark Mitchell never did two 3axels in a program. So it separated the 'old time' skating from the new jumpier model. Like with Jill Trenary his time had passed. He needed 1992, it was his only chance. I suppose it was his fault he showed up with a tired retread program that didn't maximize his strengths in 1992. Seriously, he skated the best he ever did to that program in 1991 yet DIDN'T get the marks. HELLO? Maybe that's saying something? Would've could've should'ves.
