Considering that Evan is injured, as well as Johnny's and Jeremy's performances at Finlandia and SA respectively, could the USFSA start gravitating to Richard as the #1 US man? He is the only one recently who has shown that he can keep up with the big guns (Finlandia; Glacier Falls) and the USFSA seems to like him anyway. I know that we have to wait and see Johnny and Jeremy later in the season, and if Evan competes at all, but Jeremy's skate at SA was IMO another headcase moment. How many more of these can he afford before he starts getting dumped?
I think the picture will become clearer after Ross skates at SC and Adam does CoC. How would they stack up against a clean Richard?
