Re: New State Tournament Format (or my day dream)

If you want the strongest tournament, why wouldn't you want the best teams? There is still plenty of opportunity for upsets and great stories without the need for sections to get them. Look at Air Force beating St. Cloud in hockey last spring. How about Loyola Chicago in basketball last season gett...

seems like a ton of extra travel for GR doesn’t it?
Not if they played the same schedule as they played this year...already playing Moorhead, Roseau, Brainerd, etc. Playoffs at the Sanford Center in Bemidji would be less travel than trips to Amsoil.

Re: Class A State Seeding

I think SCC would get the #1 seed over Totino should the Eagles beat Mahtomedi tonight. TG would be 0-1 vs. the Class A field. The only game being a 7-2 early season loss to EGF. SCC is 3-0 vs. the Class A field, all against teams that appear likely be seeded (EGF, Greenway, Delano). The only reason...

Re: Class A Top 20 1/27/19

Aren't semifinal games at the MAC? No home ice advantage (except for SCC). Yep! This cold is getting to my brain...... Ugh..... :oops: Yes, in Section 6A, the only teams that get a home game in the semi-finals and final is basically Cathedral and to some extent Sartell. Apollo used to have it good ...

I have no idea where Mack Motzko will end up. I'm sure there are quite a few folks who hope he's playing for the Crusaders next year. I would be shocked if a few families haven't already offered up a spare bedroom. On paper alone, next year looks like it will be Cathedral's best team yet. I've heard...

Five Minnesotan's offered spots:

Blake Biondi - Hermantown
Brock Faber - Osseo-Maple Grove
Owen Gallatin - WBL
Connor Kelley - Maple Grove
Jack Smith - St. Cloud Cathedral

Tough 24 hours for the 2018 Crusaders with the Motzko news yesterday and now Jack Smith.

ESPN3 is very high quality and very accessible. You can get the app using basically every streaming device (AppleTV, Roku, Amazon FireStick, etc.). Probably even available as an app if you have a smart TV. ESPN3 has been a complaint of many for a number of years, but the product is great if you know...

Congrats to the Cardinals on a hell of a run. Just wasn't meant to be today. With this experience under the belts of a lot of young, talented kids, certainly they'll come back hungry.

In my opinion, yesterday's game between Alexandria and Hermantown was a spitting image of the Alexandria/Cathedral game just a week prior, and pretty similar to the East/Edina game last night as well. Don't take anything away from Alexandria, this team is not a bunch of benders mucking it up and ici...

Is there a free, illegal stream on reddit? Maybe. Maybe not. Depends how upset you are that you weren't able to stream any section final games and which direction your moral compass points.

Not surprising, but I believe this will be just the 2nd Class A tourney, and first since 1998, to feature all public schools. Certainly, that should bode well for attendance.

It's a tall order. SCC gets to play on their home ice besides the other advantages they have. I think Alex has the best chance to pull an upset. I gotta call BS on the home ice advantage thing for SCC. This is the fastest team in the section, and the slower ice sheet will play a bigger advantage to...
