    MICHELLE & SCOTT WILLIAMS

    <span style="color:blue;font-family:comic sans ms;font-size:medium;">How much credit should be given to Scott Williams for Michelle's amazing performances at this year's Nationals & Worlds?</span>

    Well I voted for the fourth option - was nice to see him in the K&C corner... :-)


    But I think what he did was supporting her in a way which gave her more consistency. To me she was sure she would do it - something I couldn't really see at the Olys.

    What I'm still waiting for is more of his input into her choreography... <ducking in case of all MK fans throw silly things at me> ;-)

    I voted for other, too. I think she needs someone and she seems to respect Scott. I just hope she keeps him. Although I don't comment a lot on Michelle issues, I think her Olympic LP performance was to say the least not one of her best. If only she had the skate then like she did at Worlds. I also think that Michelle needs a coach whether it be Scott or anyone else. Just my opinions.

    I think she would have done just as well without him...

    however I don't really see much of a *change* so *shrugs* I picked other

    IMO, he completely reinvented her and deserves all the credit.

    I wouldn't say he 'reinvented her' but I would say he 'fine tuned her'. He was able to get the lead out of her pants, so to speak. It's still MK but a more assured MK than before.

    Her jumps are solid; her spins have gotten speed, her confidence is over the top. I believe Scott was able to add this to the whole package.

    When Michelle first started woking with Frank Carroll, she was a little girl and Frank -- old enough to be her grandfather -- was an authority figure for her.

    Now that Michelle has come into her majority, her needs are different. It's more of a team now, with Michelle drawing on the talents of lots of different people -- Williams, Morosov, her sister Karen, etc. Wouldn't it be cool to be one of Michelle's inner circle and get to be in on discussions about music, choreography, etc., for the coming season?

    I think one of the positive influences that came from Scott coaching is that when he took her on as a student, there was no "baggageof youth" attached to her. I often have wondered if coaches who have worked with a skater since childhood have a more difficult time treating them as adults and tailoring the skating style/choreography to suit.

    Michelle's programs this season, IMO, displayed a maturity and sophistication I haven't seen from her. Her previous programs were well-choreographed, etc., but when she skated at Nats and Worlds this year it was the first time I thought of her as a woman and not a young adult.

    Now.....if she'd just wear the Raider hair next season!!!!

    I think with Scott she gained a new perspective and encouragement to try some different things.
    She's not the little girl that started out with Frank. Sometimes you have to move on in order to grow.
    I think with Scott, Michelle's skating has been able to grow.

    I think Scott seserves some credit. I think Michelle chose her path this season herself, but I think it was important for her to have the back up of a coach who understood her vision.
