    Still, this FAB routine should put him into 1st place imho.
    His quads are very, very inconsistent and he always gets tons of GOE on his 3Lz-3T

    Is Kozuka trying to outflap Evan? yea, not as obvious with his short arms - but he was flapping them all over the place,
    It would be nice if his character out there fit the music for more than 3 seconds.....
    A dull SP IMO with mediocre choreo....

    He is capable of much more...

    I agree. And it's not like Mroz's jumps--his usual lifeline--were very good today either.

    Clunky 3A landing. Not digging his step sequence. Kozuka 1st wit 77.64 (SB). Aww he gets a little kiss.

    Agreed. Last year's LP was sooo MUCH BETTER.

    Ohh Brian's on.

    Was that little hop Brian's attempt to do a combo on his first jumping pass?!

    I get the feeling he is getting rep points from the judges due to all of his quad attempts. He's not one to shy away from difficulty, even if he does live up to his nickname Mrozzzzzzzzzz. :yawn:

    Poor landing on quad. Does a 4-1. Steps out of 3A. Powerful, clean lutz though. He had more fire back in Beijing. Still love his costume though!

    Yeah, not Brian's night, jumping-wise.

    Brian's still no God of Artistry or anything, but I respect that he's trying something new with his programs...

    The Rossini arrangement that Mroz is skating to is unbelievably ugly. Such charming music too. Makes me hate his program. He seems like another Lysacek, but with quads and without the drive.

    Bravo Kozuka. Much more personality and beautiful style. Love one of his spins but don't know the name - bent leg camel w nice arm position.

    Oops, I don't think Brian did a combo.!?! He really has to rise to the occasion like Zhenya does when pushed, especially by this new younger generation like Amodio & Mroz. Brian's the king, they are only pretenders. He definitely UR the quad, then stepped out of his shakey 3A, with the only good clean jump being the 3L.

    Brian, get your cajones back, and bring down the house with your LP!

    I don't understand, why didn't Brian tack on the combo on his 3Lz?

    Brian makes a "I don't know what happened" face to his coach. Heard he had really good practices. Wonder what happened. Gets 66.95.

    66.95 for Brian Joubert.
    Fifth place.

    Not surprising, but I'm surprised he wasn't held up more.

    Brian's SP is honestly my favorite. Amodio is skating to the same music as Brian, really trying to threaten him as #1 in France, and Brian has to answer the challenge!

    Come on, Brian, you honestly have ALL the goods, you just need to rise to the occasion!
