    Exactly.. and before the season started who would have thought that Belbin/Agosto would not even make the podium. V/M have that Belbin/Agosto vibe this season so far to me. B/A came into the season with such weak programs, not as difficult as other teams, yet they refused to change anything. Ended up getting snatched.

    Yes, I understood your point.

    And my response was the correlation =/= causation. Just putting my data hat on.

    I agree it would be quite the surprise, though!

    What I see is the gap from V/M and D/W is much lower than in year's past, but that doesn't mean they will be beaten.
    Which says to me that Marlie and Voir have forced everyone else to up their games. Which of course I realize is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad thing.

    Absolutely! One only has to look at yesterday's SD to see that in action.
