    Meanwhile, does anyone actually know anything about what's going on with Evan?

    I believe that Sasha could come back starting from USA nationals, because she didnt need a minimum TES score kept from previous seasons back then?

    It has been said by the USFSA that he needs to have the minimum TES score BEFORE Nationals in order to be considered for the Olympics. His last opportunity to do so begins on December 10. So basically all we're waiting for now is the withdrawal announcement (though no doubt he will leave that as late as possible, and the replacement skater will be disadvantaged).

    No doubt in the meantime he'll still be milking his sponsors with the "I'm going to Sochi!" line...

    Is everyone getting a little scared that they don't know what Evan is doing? Are your other American men not good enough that you all suddenly need to know what's going on and need Evan on the scene?

    At least if Evan goes with the "I'm going to Sochi!" line, it's going to be more believeable than Max Aaron doing promos for Team USA.

    I don't think there was a minimum qualifying TES during the 2006-2010 season?

    Except that Max is actually out there and competing, automatically making it more believable for him to go to Sochi than Lysacek, who we haven't seen in FOUR YEARS.

    And seriously - who else would you put on there? Abbott can't be trusted. I'd like to believe Rippon's changed his ways, but I'm wary. Brown and Farris are young, so young...

    Evan earned a bye b/c he won a medal at the last Olympics. If he WD, there will be no replacement skater.

    Max can't land a quad to save himself. The kid has been a zamboni in every GP event. Jeremy is at least able to put a program on the ice that is complete. He has the artistry and the technique to win. Max has neither. Unless you're like the judges and giving sympathy points for his pathetic interpretation of Evan Lysacek programs. Apparently Lori Nichol doesn't even think Max can do well with anything new she creates, so she's got him imitating an "idol" of his.

    There was no minimum qualifying TES for the 2010 Olympics.

    Seriously?? I assume in place of Mirai who nailed seven triples (yeah yeah the "downgrades" which only the caller saw). There was no way Sasha deserved a place on the Olympic team. You'd think even Mr.Nicks would say so. And why Sasha who placed 4th instead of Ashley in 3rd. I still love Ashley's B-face when she realized Mirai just edged her out by a tiny margin. I can only imagine what Ashley would have done if they went below her and picked Sasha for the team....
