    Gold should definitely get SA host pick. I think Wagner & Zhang have earned consideration as well.

    Doesn't Wagner get 2 invites automatically? She doesn't need a host pick does she?

    Team envelopes A-C receive funding. Gold has qualified for the Team B envelope for 2012-13 due to winning the U.S. junior title and winning the silver medal at Junior Worlds.
    Thanks for the correction, Sylvia. But still the funding she will get should be a nice boost.

    Yep. top 12 at worlds get 2 invites. In fact, she qualifies for three if she chooses to do so.

    Gracie should get one invite for her JW silver medal. If she doesn't get a second event, then USFS should save a TBA at SA for Gracie.

    After the mini sensation with the youtuve clips of her triple triples, I finally got to see Grace on TV on the TT coverage. I haven't got this excited about 'new comers' for a while! And I loved how she wasn't satisfied at all with her TT LP showing, despite having skated a beautiful program. How exciting!!

    As always, I will take a wait-and-see approach on her. I hope posters are right about her, but I've just seen far too many hyped to the hilt, then chewed and spit out. Nevertheless, a consistent Gold in the mix next season would only be a great thing. And hopefully Wagner can keep up the pace as well. And if CZhang can get back to where she was...she's a strong competitor and she'll be right in the mix as well. Alyssa Who?

    Two words for you - Linda Leaver. No one had ever heard of her before she coached Brian Boitano and everyone told Brian he needed to leave Linda Leaver to become "big time". It didn't happen, Linda remained his head coach (while searching for the proper places and people to get Brian proper feedback, choreography, and so on to work as part of the team) throughout his career. I believe as long as Alex O and Scott B are open to finding the right feedback and other team members to help Gracie achieve her goals, then there is no reason to leave them. You think she should go to Frank Carroll just because he's a big name? Pshah!

    No but if that SP was the best Scott B can do Gracie deserves much better than that.

    Over at FSUniverse, some posters are commenting that they don't like Gracie's bow at the end of her programs.

    Last season (2011), Scott Brown was nominated for the U.S. Figure Skating/Professional Skaters Association's Paul McGrath Choreographer of the Year Award ("Given to the choreographer that best exemplifies the dedication to artistic excellence portrayed by Paul McGrath in his career") along with Lori Nichol, Cindy Stuart, Marina Zoueva (she won), Igor Shpilband, and Josh Babb (synchro).

    I agree with the poster who mentioned Linda Leaver. If a coach is open to letting the student train with another specialist, they can remain the primary coach. To improve Brian's figures, Linda had Brian train with Jean Christophe Simond's coach, who was a school figures specialist.

    Yeah I don't think she did that earlier in the season. Might just be something she's trying out haha.
