    I thought this team deserves their own thread instead of being buried in the one on Samuelson/Bates' coaching change:
    I believe Todd is retiring, but I don't know about Jane.

    Thanks Sylvia. I really liked them at Nationals and am truly bummed that they've split. I met Jane's parents on the bus in Spokane and they were so nice and they were so proud. Their OD was fabulous.

    I really liked them. I was hoping they'd give it 4 more years together.

    I agree completely, OlieRow. In a sea of sameness, their programs always had something original that made them stand out. I liked this team, and will miss them.

    Oh, I didn't know that. I knew Jane when she trained in Marlboro with Elliot and she's such a sweet girl. I hope Jane finds another partner soon.

    I loved their Country OD/Peruvian OD/20's OD. They were always very well choreographed! In regards to FD, I loved "La Strada" and this years was good too! They will be missed.

    I enjoyed them a lot, especially at Skate America a couple of years ago in the 20s OD. I still find them more interesting to watch than S&B, though I understand S&B's technical command. (It just leaves me cold.)

    Has she announced any future plans?

    That's too bad about their split. I wish them well. Is Todd going to coach?

    There is an article on the new ice-dance.com about the split, with lots of quotes about their future.

    I'm going to miss some of their crazy lifts. :(

    I'm glad to hear that Todd is continuing with his video of the day. I hope they both find great success in their post skating lives. And maybe Todd will find another partner!

    They are both really nice people but I was never really sure if they got along very well.
