2018 U.S. Figure Skating Championships

Thursday’s action at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships included the Dance Program in the Junior Free Dance competition, the Short Program in the Championship Pairs competition and the Short Program in the Championship Men competition.

Below, we’ll post the schedule for Friday’s action and break down the results from Thursday’s events.

Nathan Chen stole the show during the championship men short program Thursday, finishing with a score of 104.45 points. He was nearly eight points clear of the second-place finisher, Adam Rippon, who posted a 96.52.

The race for the two spots behind Chen figures to be heated during Saturday’s free skate, as Jason Brown tallied a 93.23 and Grant Hochstein finished with a 92.18. Considering Rippon won the 2016 U.S. championship and Brown captured the 2015 edition, there is plenty of star power fighting for medal position.

Still, the story was the 18-year-old Chen, who appears well on his way to the Olympic team. According to Nick Zaccardi of NBC Sports, Chen’s score was the second-highest short program in nationals history behind only his own score from last year.

He is undefeated this season and will remain that way if he builds on his early momentum from Thursday’s short program.

National Signing Day‬‬ 2017

National Signing Day arrived Wednesday, presenting an opportunity for college football teams across the country to secure talent that can impact games in 2017 and beyond. Alabama, Florida State, Michigan, Ohio State and USC were among programs competing for a No. 1 overall recruiting class. We learned the fate of 5-star prospects such as receiver Devonta Smith (Alabama). defensive tackle Marvin Wilson (Florida State) and pass rusher K’Lavon Chaisson (LSU), and college football fans across America already can’t wait to see new players in action. Scroll down for a rundown of commitment reaction, announcement videos and analysis from the entire day.

How many players are expected to sign early?

Many programs are expecting up to 80 percent of their incoming 2018 classes to sign during the early signing period. Some coaches told SB Nation’s Bud Elliott that this ultimately serves as a test to the strength of a prospect’s verbal commitment, with most who have already made pledges looking forward to putting pen to paper and making things official.

How is recruiting affected by the early signing period?

With a month less of time for schools to meet and talk to high school prospects, things are bit more rushed following the final regular season game of the year. While some coaches hit the recruiting trail right away, others were delayed a week with conference titles to compete for, and some programs didn’t have a coaching staff to send out anyway.

Some big programs either decided or were forced to undergo new coaching hires at season’s end, and it directly impacted the state of the 2018 recruiting class. Several incoming freshman decommitted from these programs in flux, and others have decided to wait until the traditional National Signing Day to make their final decision.

Teams in pre-Christmas bowl games are also at a disadvantage, having to navigate both preparing their teams for postseason play and trying to finalize things on the recruiting trail.

Which pledges might wait for National Signing Day?

There are a host of reasons that 2018 targets might wait until the traditional National Signing Day on Feb. 1 to sign on the dotted line. Not only are coaching changes a big factor, but some players might need time to take additional visits, while others might need time to be academically eligible for their top landing spots.

Having an Early Signing Period also gives players on the fence an opportunity to see how some of the classes fill at their top programs, to see which roster they might best fit with or succeed with.

It also might not be the players decision to wait. Coaches could ask prospects to hold off until early-February to ensure they still have a scholarship spot for them.

Midnight Mass of Christmas 2017

Unfortunately, tickets for this event are usually reserved months in advance by those who planned ahead and therefore if you dont have a ticket now, it’s highly unlikely that you will be able to get in.

However, don’t worry, the Vatican will broadcast the Mass on jumbo screens in St Peter’s Square and thousands come to watch it out in the crisp night air.  The atmosphere is always very special and it is a great and unique experience of the dawn of Christmas.
