I really doubt they are thinking of it like that. I think they know about the depth of U.S. Ice Dance. After all, they all train in Detroit. Chock and Bates are former training partners. I think if they're feeling distressed/discouraged, it's more due to their own personal circumstances rather than where they rank relative to everyone else. However, they don't really whine about it publicly, so that's really hard to say.
