    Congratulations to Ryan. Very happy for him. Dornbush and Miner were just terrific. Congrats to them both.

    Sad for Jeremy not only did he lose the title he came in fourth, ouch.

    This competition was pure insanity! The level of skating was initially so high there was no way they were going to keep up that pace. I'm so thrilled for Ryan for doing enough to hold onto the win! I feel for Jeremy... The pressure on him was obviously dramatically greater than it was for the others.

    But, we are left with another case where following Nationals results to pick the World team isn't really a good idea. Does anyone trust Bradley/Dornbush/Miner to retain three spots? Yeah right. I think Jeremy finished close enough to top 3 to deserve a spot. History says USFS won't give it to him, and I think it would be a bad decision.

    While it's not official policy to send the silver and bronze medalists to worlds if they're age-eligible, it's certainly how it's done in years past which creates an expectation and a de facto rule. It would be hugely unfair to deny Dornbush or Miner the spot at Worlds that they earned by beating Abbott directly. Yes, this may cost the US a spot at the next worlds, but is that more important than fairness? Really, I am shocked at all these people who are suggesting such a thing. If securing one spot is more important than being fair and accountable to the athletes, then the USFS doesn't deserve to be responsible for them.

    I'm more surprised that they didn't give him the 2 toe at the end of the second quad. That makes no sense to me. If it's not part of the quad, isn't it another jumping pass? If so, Dornbush should be the National champion.

    I knew people were going to start saying this. Me, I knew he would win as soon as he stopped skating. It's math.

    If you can separate how adorable Ryan is from his actual skating, don't you honestly think his skating skills are overmarked?

    ETA: Speaking of skating skills, Dornbush's jumped up a point from the SP to the FP (acc. to the judges). That is some fast reputation judging! He deserved it, though.

    aside from Abbott and maybe Rippon, no I don't think he's drastically "worse" than the others.
