The USFSA has been using the same criteria to send skaters to Worlds since probably the 1950's. Seems like we've done pretty good in those 60 plus years. Name me another country with more World medals. Mirai and Jeremy blew it simple as that. I would love to see Mira go instead of either Rachael or Alissa after what happened at 4CC but it's not going to happen. As for the men give the young guys a chance. The US team needs to rebuild for Sochi and Jeremy probably won't even be around. If we lose the 3rd spot so be it we will get it back.
I'm very happy that Jeremy has gotten a bronze medal, but beaten by Hanyu showed that he wasn't on a top form. He has left a lot of points in both his SP and LP besides that ur-ed 4T. He should really work on his spins this off season. I'd think that the boot issue has affected his spins tremendously. Next year, his spins will have no problems like in 2009-10. No matter of anything, he is still one of the top male skaters US got, and the international judges recognized it. He should have been on the world team with Bradley and Dornbush. Sad for him! Really wish to see those programs one more time.

After I fly back home,I will write more of my fan point of view impression
For now, apart form Dai, Kozuka LP is brilliant. Marina Zueva is genius. And watched Yuzuru quad after so many fall is just Wow.
