Re: No State Tournament at the X this Spring....

MSHSL raising their fees to such crazy amounts is ridiculous. How many highly paid administrators have been cut and let go? How much "fluff" do they have for people to do simple tasks for them. Time to really look at this organization and tighten the belt. Do we really need a guy driving a car aroun...

Re: Minnesota Hockey Taking Over?

I'm sure the wait until October is calculated by the board. I know many feel they didn't cancel football now because many that are close to the borders would play in another state, which would be an issue for those schools.

I hope they have the hockey season

Re: Transfers 2020-21

It will be interesting to see what the MSHSL makes of transfers due to online learning. Can they punish a kid for going from a district that will only have online learning to a school that has in person school? I've been wondering the same thing myself, especially for the younger kids who need a pa...

Re: 20-21 schedules

Football just put out their schedules last week,they start a week later than usual...MEA break plays the last week on a Wednesday. This year MEA is week 7 and the next Tuesday is week 8. This will kill athletic budgets! The MSHSL gets dumber by the quarter. The attendance in every school is far hig...

Re: AA tournament not a state tournament?

Dwindling enrollments become an issue in northern MN and the MSHSL, as bad as they may be at many things, has to try to fill the sections.
