Re: Seeding 6AA

Edina is barely .500 on the season and could easily end underneath. So I'm not sure I'd be giving them the #2 seed... 1. CDH - Not sure how tested, but a gawdy record. 2. Wayzata - Better record than Edina 3. Edina - Beat Benilde, even though Benilde has the better record 4. Benilde 5. SLP - Solid s...

Re: Maple Grove vs Lakeville South, 3/9

That is a nice development. Should give us some clarity on those two teams.

Re: Computer Rankings MAR 01, 2012

Well we know Centennial, Rogers and Totino aren't top 10 teams. Yet the computer values them this year. But it doesn't matter, because the computer doesn't pick who gets in to the playoffs. Everyone does and gets to show just how good they are.

Re: 4AA Outlook

Last line change? You just proved my point, thanks. ;) :mrgreen: Of course anything can happen on any given night, whether it be the regular season, sections or State. I've seen Hill teams go in as the #1 team in the state and fail to make it out of sections. I've also seen the opposite, where Hill...

Very nice work as always, Karl. I wouldn't have minded a section run down too, but it will have to wait for next week in this very odd pandemic season.
And if you could add a breakdown of each team's JV and Bantam squads, that would be appreciated too. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: AA Rankings for 2/28/21

I am by no means a fan of Edina, but I say this almost every year. Never count them out, they are showing once again why they are a strong program. I think they've definitely shown they can be dangerous and beat good teams. A win over EP is nothing to sneeze at. That said, it seems likely they'll f...

Quick peeked in on WBL and they were up in the 3rd on Park-Cottage Grover 4-0. Looks like the Bears are on a roll.

5-0 final in favor of HM. Not a great weekend for BSM. But time to put things together and make their run.

In the last 6 games since an uncharacteristic loss to STA, HM outscores their opponents 28-3. That does include a game with over matched Simley...

Re: Games Friday 2-26-21

Benilde wins two periods. Good one O Town. I believe the Benilde girls also won 2 periods. I did look the other day and wonder about BSM's schedule and wondered if they were as good as advertised. Even with that doubt, this score surprises me. Edina has had trouble scoring all year. I may need to w...

Re: Games Saturday 2-27-21

So what happens if your team gets covid the week of sections? I assume you just forfeit? It would be a hard way to lose some of the teams, but it could happen. Its unfortunate these students put the whole school at risk (which obviously can happen at any school). Could get ugly I would assume so: i...

Looks pretty grim on the Class A side. I’ll actually get a chance to watch Hill vs Benilde. I'm very much looking forward to this game. I can't hear Benilde vs Hill without immediately thinking back to when they played each other in the championship game during the 2011-2012 season. Benilde won tha...

Re: 4AA

Well just one week later and Stillwater has dropped a couple games (which also happened on the boys side). Losses to Roseville and East Ridge likely will make the discussion over seeding moot.

Re: Week 7

Final 2-1 Edina. Benilde is dangerous. Edina seems to eek all these out though. Although it only takes once in the playoffs for it to all come undone.

Re: Games Tuesday 2-23-21

On the bright side, no one wants to play east come sections. Period. And I've seen it too many times. Randolph teams under .500 in January and making noise at state in March. So this doesn't bother me all that much... And here I was thinking the Duluth East teams have been so bad the past couple ye...

I see only six seniors listed on the Hub roster. Is there really only one left? Is this the periodic "Randolph is playing underclassmen instead of upperclassmen" upheaval?
