Re: Boys State Hockey Tournament looking more likely this winter??

Initially it was rent free but that ended years ago. A really big screw up by the legislation. Wrestling had to cut their number of days from 4 to 3 due to cost. The Metrodome was rent free, US Bank stadium is also rent free for a certain number of days as long as it it stands, so soccer and footbal...

Re: Games Friday 2-26-21

Dodge County beats LaCrescent 14-1. The Wildcats have two losses (#1 AA Maple Grove and Mayo) and a tie with a decent Northfield team.

Dodge County, counting today, has 8 games in the next 15 days. Then playoffs, that is a tough stretch no matter who you are.

Re: Games Saturday 2-20-21

Minnetonka beats Owatonna 5-0, I don’t think Owatonna had much more than 10 shots. I still think this helps Owatonna come sections, seeing better teams. Mayo beats Dodge County 4-3, Mayo isn’t bad but likely a 6 seed in 1AA. West probably benefits from this result the most in 1A. 1AA while not great...

Re: Games Saturday 2-20-21

From a Southern perspective.....
Can Owatonna stay with Minnetonka? That is a top football match up but in hockey? Owatonna went out and picked up non conference games against Gentry and Minnetonka....will that help the them come sections?

Dodge County plays Mayo.....Dodge County is rolling lately.

Re: Games Tuesday 2-16-21

Dodge County is playing very well lately....are they in the top tier of A teams, no, they just aren’t deep enough or good enough on the back end. I think, at this point though, they are a borderline top 10 A team in my opinion.

Re: Boys State Hockey Tournament looking more likely this winter??

By and large the AA public schools haven’t had in person instruction in over a year by the 2021 state hockey tournament. Why would the kids bother to show up for a quarterfinal game at 11am? Honestly, they don’t care what a privileged kid does at this point and time. We went through this in football...

I’m sorry, I wasn’t clear in that I was referring the past couple of years with Minnesota River, not this year. They did get a #2 seed I believe in the past. Dodge County has, probably, the best player in Lamb.....but they are not as deep as last year I think. They do play the Rochester schools and ...

Re: 3A 2020-21 Season

I think if Waseca ends up with 2 losses or less they could get a 2 or 3 seed. Largely based off how Minnesota River showed a good Big South team is a real danger in 1A and I think Minnesota River was seeded fairly, not punished for not being in the Big Nine. I do think they will fall in the range yo...

Will Karl put a 1AA team #1? Clearly that goes into his thinking. Just waiting because beating a non top 4 1A team is clearly a quality win for Maple Grove!

Re: Way Too Early Computer Rankings UMW HS Hockey

I was curious how you would handle this; in a normal year Iowa and Minnesota teams do not mix, now Minnesota and Minnesota teams don’t mix. Thanks for the explanation. Unless you somehow factor in last year’s schedule and returning players I do not know how to integrate provincial schedules. Even th...

Re: 3A 2020-21 Season

I like that the Big South Conference puts their games on Friday nights. Kind of like football, it puts the spotlight on the kids and their games. When is the last time 4 games into the season Fairmont and Marshall were tied? In 1A East and West are kind of separating from the pack but Waseca continu...

Out of curiosity......what the heck happened to Cathedral? They were 3rd in class A last year and this barely squeezed by Morris and lost to Lourdes. To go from 3rd to not even a mention in the top 20-25 is quite the fall in class A. I know scheduling was tough this year but with Hermantown, Gentry,...

FWIW with the condensed schedule conditioning is going to be a huge factor. Lose a game to get conditioning in may happen.

Re: 3A 2020-21 Season

Worthington is 2-0. Has that ever happened? The Trojans are an improving program, nice to see. I have no idea where Waseca will fall in 1A. Both Dodge County and East have some top end players but neither are deep. West will be in the mix as well. The Big Nine, along with most conferences, are playi...

Re: Games Thursday 1-21-21

Hastings has one of the biggest Case/International Harvester dealerships in the state. You have to lean towards outstate, heck Hastings is more rural than Rochester.

I have no opinion on Holy Family.

Discount the Tradition Rich Metro East at your own peril. The TRME has your #3 and # 4 teams. Hastings plays in the top conference in the state and in a bad section. The South Suburban is down this year. Hastings was a horribly officiated game away from a state tournament berth last year. It won’t h...
