Re: 2021-22 Coaching Openings

If it were not for Covid the Rochester schools would have been seeded #6,8 and 9 out of 9 in 1AA this year. Ness did a great job at John Marshall. JM has zero chance in 1AA as it is now. Fornwald stepping down at Albert Lea surprises me a bit as they are always competitive and he is a good coach. F...

Re: A Rankings for 1/26/20

I think I have Waseca high as well, but East has a losing record and lost to Faribault. The Big Nine is not very good and the bottom of the conference is awful with 6 team ranked #117 or below. East has a nice win over Hutch but really that is it. I think at some point you have to win some games, E...

Well, as expected Hermantown will be the #1 seed at state. Looks like Mankato West, LDC, and the 5A winner will be the unseeded teams. I know the draw is "random", but here's a guess as to the seeds: 1. Hermantown 2. Breck/Delano 3. Cathedral 4. TRF/EGF 5. SPA/TG or LF if they win 6A. 6. LDC 7. Pri...

Luverne is indeed a team most people would love to cheer for..until you hear their fans talk and then you wish Saint Thomas was still in Class A to pound those ignorant people into the ground.

I believe it's done strictly through a computer using geography and enrollment numbers.

I don't think I can recall so many close first round match-ups----usually scores like the Albert Lea game, not OT or 2OT in the play in games. Pretty much follows the thoughts by most that this section would be close and fun--looking forward to the action tomorrow night. Where to go tomorrow is the...

Didn't see that coming. Nice work.

Based on current scores, Section 1A is going to be a blast.

Am I missing something on Northfield? Losses to JM, Century, and Faribault recently, all teams Mankato West has beaten in the last month. I'm not saying I think West is a whole lot better, but just curious why everyone likes Northfield..don't see New Prague losing but need an upset somewhere?

Money talks..If High School Hockey continues to be imploded by junior leagues and AAA teams, the MSHSL will lose it's primary money maker in the State tournament. If that happens, or even begins to, changes will happen whether or not it's best for the students. No it doesn't and that line you and s...

I was at Schwans Arena this weekend and looming all over the complex were 4'x6' signs for AAA hockey. Their big selling point is more games. In Minnesota we're very lucky to still have high school hockey. Most states don't. The talk out there is to be competitive with AAA hockey the MSHSL is going ...

Something totally out of their control, but if school ever became year round... The powerful teachers' unions would never go along with this. Instead, I think they should raise the maximum number of regular season games to 30 and play 20 minute periods. Many teachers are in favor of year round scho...
