Re: Football forum

I guess I had a post deleted by the police….

Isn’t Sartell usually a top ten team?

Down in the South East we are rolling in the polls. #1in 5A and 2A… #3, 7, and 9 in 4A….#3, 4, & 10 in 3A

(Given the provincial nature of high school football I do not much stock in polls)

Re: Officials

Thanks for posting rates received. People need to know what they can make.

I just got 72.50 for a 9th grade football game that took <2 hours, It is not about the money, but it helps.

Re: Officials

I do not know what baseball umpires make, I do know a couple of people who make their living officiating though. Baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball, and football. In my experience I take far, far less abuse in high school events at every level than I ever did at the youth level. Don’t let a ...

In every sport the MSHSL is in dire straits when it comes to the number of officials. Please consider being an official in any sport, we provide the training and the mentoring to become an official. In football we get $95 a game plus mileage for a varsity game. ~$75 for an under varsity game. It is ...

Re: Football forum

I thought district scheduling was supposed to end that. 6A teams were supposed to be put in a 6A district, Rochester Mayo was a 6A school but schools that opted up pushed them back to 5A, as 6A topped out at 32 schools. The local assumption was that Mayo would be put in a metro 6A district instead o...

Re: Football forum

Just a thought but with King sitting out this year, Caledonia’s win streak will come to an end. I believe currently they are tied for #9 in the nation. They should #6 or #5 though. They were never at 71 going to catch De La Salle of Concord CA at 151 anyhow. I hope I have to eat my words and they wi...

Re: Football forum

Nor most other states, we get a late start here in Minnesota compared to much of the high school world. Given our weather that is pretty odd. I expect games here will get canceled…..but far fewer than last year. Albert Lea has an outbreak but as of yet is still plodding along with athletics. I think...

As of August 14th, the New York State Department of Education becomes the first state to advocate against football being played. Now that someone became the first more states will follow.

I watched Dr. Scott Gotlieb on CNBC this morning….he thinks we peak in 3 weeks or less. He had been pretty spot on for the last 20 months. That bodes well for a normal football season. I have far less hope for indoor sports this fall. Walz says he won’t declare emergency powers again. The good is no...

Re: Fluid AA Offseason Top 25

Mankato East/Loyola took out a few schools in a couple of sports due to contract tracing , Mayo was just one of them.

Cretin may be the best team, I just have trouble with a team from the SEC being #1 given their conference schedule, that is the only beef I have with them.

So it’s not just all about the kids? I’d have had more respect for him if he’d have chosen to walk off into the sunset. After what East hockey was before he got there and what he made of it, your respect/disrespect is moot. He deserved better than what he got from the Duluth School Board and East A...

Re: Football forum

July 1st I was assuming the 2021 football season was be as close to normal as the 2018 season. Now I give it a 25% chance. Hopefully the 2021 season is closer to last year’s abomination than something new or completely abandoned. I have my doubts we are returning to normal.

The NCAA allowing players to make money will be the death nail in college sports as we once knew it.

Matt Erridge will be good at John Marshall, he has been the top assistant there for a number of years. He knows the program and the problems they face.

Man, he was a great high school player.

Re: 2021-22 Coaching Openings

Meh! As I posted on another thread.....using Kivihalme as your example does not further your argument and probably lessens it. You could have picked more than 3 dozen coaches wrongly not rehired. Yet you pick a Lakeville coach?

Meh! You can make a living running South off of an off season program, you can’t in Owatonna where football is king. Storm is a good coach but never out kicked his coverage. Just saying.

This has been a decade+ problem in Lakeville. North did the exact same things.....if you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em.....it isn’t just a hockey problem either.

Re: 2021-22 Coaching Openings

Hiring coaches who are not teachers leads to chaos. Teachers do not automatically make the best coaches but hiring an insurance salesman isn’t a long term solution in my opinion. Add to that a school board will not stand behind the AD they hired and you have the situation we have in too many schools...

Changing the way Co-ops are counted made Dodge County a 1AA team. No way around 1AA at that point. Luckily they didn’t move Hastings out as they have more in common with the 1AA schools than say Prior Lake or Burnsville. If you are in 1AA and not in Rochester or Lakeville you had better have FFA!

Re: Janne Kivihalme Out at Lakeville South

Lakeville is dirty because of parents and the school board. They ran out two coaches for no reason other than they disliked them. Multiple AD’s resigned over those actions, much of which is public record. As for South.....back when Kloos was there they did pick up a kid or two. Not recruiting relate...
