Moorhead will be a top 10 team for years to come. I do think Roseau has a chance to give them a test again this year, but time will tell. We need a coach hired first!
This late in the summer will the new coach be from the broader community, rather than the school district?

Re: 2021-22 Coaching Openings

Any buzz on the Roseau front? Seems odd and a little concerning that there have been crickets so far. Still posted on Roseau's web site, along with a part-time activities director. May make it easier to put a package together. As a teacher in the district, Roseau could assign Lundbohm to the positi...

Re: 2021-22 Coaching Openings

Probably a good time in the East timeline for Mike to step down. He and the Hounds have had a nearly 3 decade long run of being one of the top teams in the State. It will be interesting to see where the program goes under a new regime. Every one of us is replaceable. Mike did a great job, and left ...

Not much grey area with this coach. Either you love him, or you don't.

Re: 2021-22 Coaching Openings

How much does compensation weigh in to these departures? Yes, I know some are performance based issues and others are tired of the stress and placating everybody.

Moorhead Connections

With GA and EP winning last night, Joe Cullen and Jackson Blake both achieved state titles, something their fathers fell short of. Could that lift the hex that appears to have been on the Spuds program?

I understand your viewpoint, but the current two-class system needs to be "re-calibrated" so the upper or perennially more successful teams are all in the upper-division.
Or could we re-calibrate back to one class?

Thank you for sharing this with the board E70. Dick was a good man with a heart for hockey. Never in it for himself, he worked behind the scenes of many projects that will benefit youth for generations to come.
