Re: AA Rankings for 12/5/21

Take a look at Gentry's schedule. For good or for ill, fair or unfair, we will have no idea how good they are until the end of the season.

I'll correct East Side guy the same way I would correct a Packers fan.

I don't hate the team I hate their fans.

Re: Teams Making a Jump to Relevance

No home ice advantages. 4AA could be at Tria, Super Rink #5, or Fogerty. What are the seating capacities of those venues? OK, I just found the Tria seating. A paltry 1,200. Not even worthy of suggestion. Then send them over to Mariucci or Ridder. Heck, treat them like 7AA on the girls side (norther...

Okay a very long time ago, they used to have the section finals at the Met Center. 4AA (which was section 3 at the time) moved to the coliseum when that arena was demolished.

Re: Teams Making a Jump to Relevance

Why are their home games at Phalen Arena and not at Aldrich? Aldrich is still a St. Paul public arena and not a shrine to Hill Murray. Johnson asked for Ramsey County to make upgrades to Phalen-Gustafson Arena, on the JHS campus. I was among many who thought this was a great idea. This may have bee...

Even the one that beat you a couple years back when you won the title. Good thing that team was single A ha? Yep, even that one. If they want to be relevant, they need to beat us in the 4AA tournament. We use 4AA championship trophies as bookends. They'd treat it like the Hope Diamond. If they ever...

Not sure what Burnsville's future holds. Do they have anything in the pipeline or are they destined to go the way of Apple Valley?
I was told there were just 22 total that tried out this winter.
22??? It's not a "tryout" if no one gets cut.

Can we also discuss teams making a jump from relevance? You mean teams moving towards irrelevance? Yeah, I would put Marshall and Luverne into that category, in terms of 3A. Statewide, I don't think their moves towards irrelevance is relevant although Luverne did generate a lot of discussion a few ...

Anyway, interesting concept.
To be honest, it sounds... um... moronic and idiotic sound too harsh... maybe just ridiculous. I don't know who will care about this. I'd just award the trophy to the team whose fans eat the most nachos.

North will be a bottom feeder in metro AA, luckily for them they are in section 1 and that the SSC conference has a pretty clear demarcation line and isn’t very deep…..being the best of the rest makes Karl feel they are relevant.
I don't think North Saint Paul is in AA anymore. :wink:
