    Ladies:

    1. Wagner
    2. Gold- didn't do enough this season for the judges to want to challenge Wagner. However, there is no scenario in which I see her lower than second.
    3. Nagasu- I can't believe I'm typing this but I really think she's going to pull it off
    4. Zawadski- judges will keep her in it by scoring her high in the SP
    5. Gao- Fifth. of course.
    6. Cesario

    Men:

    1. Rippon- His momentum has been solidly building since skate america.
    2. Brown- couldn't decide between Brown & Aaron so I went with personal preference. Could go either way.
    3. Aaron
    4. Abbot- the judges will realize Jason without a quad is a better investment for the future than Jeremy with a small chance of a quad.
    5. Farris
    6. Miner

    Pairs:

    1. Castelli/Shnapir- I just can't put D/C first. This team waited a long time to get to the forefront of the US pair conversation and I imagine they're going to throw it down on a home ice in a way that they didn't earlier this season. That quad will be landed.
    2. Denney/Coughlin- there's no way the most consistent jumpers are not on the Olympic team with the team event
    3. Scimeca/Kneirim-Like C/S, they didn't build momentum this GP season. The injury and also the knowledge that they're in the Olympic mix seemed to make them tenative. Also if SCOB has any political muscle, they will be the ones hurt by it, not D/C.
    4. Denney/Frazier
    5. Donlan/Speroff
    6. Zhang/Bartholomay

    Dance:

    1. Davis/White
    2. Shibutanis- the Judges seem to be warming to them again. Tanith's gushing during the SA IceNetwork commentary tells me USFSA is behind them.
    3. Chock & Bates- Igor will ensure that they at least get on the team
    4. Hubbell/Donohue- So bummed about this one. Its too bad we can't trade the third lady for a fourth dance spot.
    5. Aldridge/Eaton
    6. Lynn & Logan

    The pairs program starts at 2 p.m. EST on Jan. 9, so I guess an hour before that?

    Thank you all for clearing this up. I didn't know what the schedule was until there now, as the timetable wasn't up at the time I posted the lists of entries.

    But, I've now added a link for the timetable to the first post.

    Thank you again

    Sorry about that. My mistake. I must of forgotten what I had read in the short time it took me to go from one window to the other! (Not an unusual occurrance!!! )

    What would I do without you, Mrs. P? You have been totally invaluable for pointing me towards nearly all the information to do with these particular Nationals!

    Thank you so much!!!

    heheh

    1. Mirai Nagasu - I look like a troll but idc. She's training in Japan, so hopefully we will see an improved Mirai.
    2. Christina Gao - Idk, i feel that she's going to peak right here at this moment.
    3. Ashley Wager - I think she won't really live up to all the hypes.
    4. Gracie Gold - I'm predicting a lot of costly mistakes and falls.
    5. Samantha Cesario - I think she will do well, but not enough to battle the more experienced ladies at this moment.

    It's probably too late for me to play for points, but here's my take anyway:

    Ladies:
    1. Wagner ... almost no question. She's been totally on all season.
    2. Gold ... she wasn't as successful on the GP as expected, but she's a dark-horse medal contender in Sochi.
    3. Zawadzki ... third time's the charm? Clean SP = Agnes 2014. Guaranteed.
    4. Gao (alt) ... God help this girl get on the podium! I don't think it'll be enough to make the team, though.
    5. Cesario (alt) ... she did well on the GP, but lacks technical difficulty. Has she ditched the 3Lo-3Lo yet?
    6. Nagasu (alt) ... I think she's going to put in a good effort, but the judges have mostly given up on her.

    Men:
    1. Aaron ... if his quads are intact.
    2. Rippon ... I can't believe I'm saying this, but he's been pretty amazing so far.
    3. Abbott (alt) ... breaks my heart, but without a quad, I don't see him making the team.
    4. Brown (alt) ... after his bronze at TEB, what are the judges waiting for?
    5. Farris (alt) ... has the technical difficulty to challenge for a spot, but may or may not land all of his jumps.
    6. Dornbush (alt) ... eh. He has the jumps, but not much else.

    Pairs (I don't watch enough pairs skating to give thought-out reasons):
    1. Denney/Coughlin
    2. Castelli/Shnapir
    3. Scimeca/Knierim (alt)
    4. Zhang/Bartolomay (alt)
    5. Denney/Frazier (alt)

    Ice Dance:
    1. Davis/White ... unless they forget to show up.
    2. Chock/Bates ... have been brilliant this season.
    3. Shibutani/Shibutani ... crowd favorites and Zoueva's pupils. I have a soft spot for their Michael Jackson FD.
    4. Hubbell/Donohue (alt) ... with her recent injury, I can't see them overtaking the Shibs.
    5. Kriengkrairut/Giuletti-Schmit (alt) ... trying to break through, but they probably won't get to go to Sochi.
