OK, I need coffee before I login. And I still have reservations about keeping this thread alive.
The vid of Steve Desovich is still amazing in that he shot out from the trough but its looks like he did that purposely to set up himself up for the coming line. Simular to what they were saying in the Carmicheal article. He certainly kept his CM over on center and did not hinge (or break his waist). And the bobble (I really need coffee before I login) was an attempt to get himself setup for his jump, back then they used whatever bumps they had for kickers..... very different from the man made courses of today. And he did this under the pressure competition, the more I look at that vid, the more amazing it gets.
