Re: Key player injuries 2019-20

My arthritis is worsening so expect more grammatical errors..... Or were you taking about high school kids and not people who post on here? I would consider Karl, Lee, Elliot, Otown, kniven, etc key players. Lee could be nearing retirement. His heart just isn't in the game these days, it seems. As ...

Re: Key player injuries 2019-20

Talking about yourself in the third person is clearly sign of injury. The state may even have laws against participation due to a possible concussion without clearance by a health care professional. Lee is not concerned. Lee easily ducks everything his wife throws at him. :mrgreen: Lee Experience t...

Re: High School football

Thanks..... Two defending state champs just got beat handily; Spring Grove and Lourdes. Watch out for Winona in 4A, Chatfield to upset Caledonia in 2A. Owatonna should continue their domination in 5A. It has been a while since section 1 hasn’t won a nine man title and I think Southland keeps that st...

Re: Worst AA/A sections 1-8, 2019

Owatonna was the largest school in the Big Nine for a number of years after Rochester Century opened, they are now behind all three Rochester schools and will fall behind Northfield fairly soon.....to be fair some of that has to do with the way the MSHSL counts enrollment. Owatonna is a football sch...

4 of the bottom 11 AA teams in terms of enrollment and 5 of the bottom 13 reside in 1AA. Only Northfield of those 5 is growing in terms of MSHSL enrollment. Rochester will be lucky to field 3 public school varsity teams in 10 years. Much like Minneapolis, St. Paul, and St. Cloud the middle class is ...

Re: Worst AA/A sections 1-8, 2019

Just my opinion..... Roseau continuing to opt opt keeps 8AA alive as we know it. There is no other reason for it to exist as a NW section. Moorhead is not a reason to keep a singular section alive. You could reasonably make an argument for a section of 218 teams, just as they did for 507 teams.

Re: Worst AA/A sections 1-8, 2019

I would never say never, schools that opt up keep the two separate northern sections alive. 1AA was, at one time, Austin, Albert Lea, Faribault, Owatonna, Century, John Marshall, Mayo, and Winona. 3 of those schools opted up, Lakeville didn’t come in until Albert Lea stopped opting up. Now, 1AA clea...

My list at goalie would be Stutz and Butters.

McDonagh would not make a top 10 or 20 list at defense for me. A great player but not great at the state tournament.

Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

Strange how McCarville is disregarded. He had a bad playoff game against a hot and experienced South team. My guess if Hastings was in 4AA he would be a top 5 goalie but since he is in 1AA he must suck. Go figure the bias here. Alex Kangas is one of the top Gopher goalies, Charlie Lindgren played in...

So has Kershaw, Scherzer, and Baumgartner in the past. No one wants to see Oderizzi throw 102 pitches in 5 1/3 innings.....too many pitchers like that....
