    Loved Moore Towers and Moscowitz showing - plenty of attack is what they need and of course consistency. Anyone has their LP video?

    Thank you! Wonder why Johnson, Fournier and Caluza withdrew?

    He's attempted it in practice, but every time in the long it's either severely underrotated or tripled.

    Jason has work to do, but that's a pretty good score for a junior.

    I heard Caluza wasn't planning on doing the long progam, just the short.

    Great competition. This made my weekend.

    Nagasu looks like a woman. This is her best program to date. Hope she can clean up her landings on the second part of the program but, realistically she is going to need a 7-triple jump program if she wants to get back on top. And she would need to do this at her GP assignments to build a strong reputation with the judges.

    Lam is way to stiff

    Hicks has a rather strange technique not sure she can climb ahead of Polina, Gracie and Hannah

    Dornbush is looking sharp. Not sure how I feel with the free skate but, the short was great.

    Jason-looks too much like a girl to me, not sure if it's the pony tail or that extremely feminine music. He is despreately going to need that 3-axel.

    Some of the other guys had great skates. Kudos to Sean and Grant

    Armin is looking pretty good as well as Farris (youtube brought me to the LA competition from July) so I am comparing all of them.

    A good start to the season for Nagasu. She looked more determined here than in any competition last season. Her score was surprisingly low, though. I'm guessing her 3Toe in combination must have gotten a < .

    I love Vanessa's SP

    Transition into her combo jump is gorgeous. If someone can help her clean up her jumps, she would be amazing. Her spins and steps are top tier, if only the jumps can match those.

    Mirai's LP on the other hand is a mess.

    Starting from the first lutz, it feels like she had no choreography going afterward. Any of her movements had no relation to the music, at all. And then the next 2A-3T was just randomly there, it was like she's skating to a different tune. Wow, what a hopeless FS.

    Even Miki's Morosov-stamped program seemed 1000x better choreographed.

    I'm thinking maybe the problem is Mirai's inability to do complex choreography. Her programs start to look exactly the same with simple crossovers thrown in. I thought Lori was the problem, giving her uninspired craps to work with.

    If you see only crossovers in her programs, it's not Mirai's problem.

    It's not her problem the judges only see as much in her programs as well.

    The Junior and Senior Ladies/Mens SP and FS will be on IceNetwork, video-on-demand, about 1 to 2 weeks after the competition. So, Toni, if you can't make it, you can watch it on IN.

    But, it's always better in person!
    FYI:
    The IN on-demand videos now have been posted. Pls forgive me if that is old news -- don't know whether contributors to this thread have been making do with YouTube videos.

    Mirai can do complex choreography, have you seen Carmen? But I think considering it's the start of a season which followed her worst season on the senior level, I'm guessing they wanted to play it safe for now. I actually liked how they placed a few of the elements like the first triple lutz and the double axel-triple toe(it had a nice build up to the entrance) and how they used the combination spin to highlight a change in the mood rather to finish like everyone does now the layback at the end. I also liked the transitions into the second lutz and the first loop. The choreography outside of that was pretty mediocre but I thought Vanessa's free skate was actually worse; there were points at the end where I thought she was being possessed by Rachael Flatt, and her try-hard jazz moves, except at least Rachael smiled.
