Ha! Good memory, and thanks Michigasling. What's funny is I'm confident that my 3 college roommates are going to combine for at least 13 straight national championships when it's all said and done.
2010 - 2014 (5 years): Charlie & Meryl
2015 - 2018 (4 years, my prediction): Evan & Madi
2019 - 2022 (4 years, my prediction): Shibs sibs
What a fricken run for UM.

Second, the underlying theme to your post should be that maybe WD should take a little break. A little WD-time to himself.

Seriously WD I'm getting so sick and tired of your LOOK AT ME bullshit. From this thread to the one you started about the 'Wolverine Devotee imposter'....like, what the hell man? How about you unplug for a few days (weeks...months...).

Great ad, but I think there was a missed opportunity regarding him being the only defensive player to ever win the heisman. Like showing the initial setup of a play...everyone is on offense except for Woodson, and he still blows them up. Would have been pretty funny to me at least.

Interesting that our last two QB's are switching positions to make it to the league. How often does this happen in general (i.e. not just QB's)?
Maybe Shane should get a jump-start and switch to WR right now?

Surprised with all the hate in this thread. I think it's great that while they're here they are trying out one of our countries greatest and well-loved sports. Good for them.

There's been a lot of good discussion in this thread, so I'm not going to hammer anything home too hard. But I will leave this here for anyone who comes across this thread again:
That's a screenshot of how Meryl and Charlie received their free dance score at the Olympics. You can see that each element has a 'base value' from which they can deviate from +3 to -3, called the 'Grade of Execution' or GOE. This is basically graded like the inverse of golf. If they execute the element as perfectly as it can be executed (factors including speed, strength, quickness, etc.) then they will receive a +3 on top of their base value, like a hole-in-one. If they fall, they will receive a -3 on top of the base value...triple bogie. One thing to note is that a +3 may not really be a '+3'...it may be as small as +0.5 or as high as +3 depending on what kind of element it is.
One other thing to note is that each element has 4 different levels, each with a different base value. You achieve a higher level (level 4 being the highest) by adding difficulty to a given element (for example, in pairs skating, doing a 1-handed lift would give you a higher level than a 2-handed lift).
Where a lot of the "subjective" discussion comes in is in the 'artistic mark', where a judge can give the skater a seemingly-arbitrary point value based on what they deem to be better style, creativity, etc. However, as other have mentioned, 4 out of 9 of the judges' scores are thrown out, so you're left with a solid core of the median of the judges' opinions. It really isn't that subjective when it all comes down to the final score.
Hope this helped people understand a little better.
