I'm sure she gets a good laugh at all the times she was pegged as crazy when she dusts off her daughter's OGM or sees her daughter's face on her country's currency.
But I think it is a bigger leap to tag Rippon as not having competitive fire. I disagree with that.
You are right Orser is a new coach and unfortunately for him his first student won OG so no matter how great his students did this season it was a downward projection. From the look on his face in the K&C I think Orser was the one with the most "head" issues this season.
