section 8AA up for grabs

Of course its up for grabs. Why even play the game if the "favorite" is going to win everytime? Last year the Spuds were favored to win the Whole Enchilada, but fell short. Prior to that the "unfavored" Rams, going arguably against the best Spud team ever, almost knocked them off. <br><br>This year,...

Re: Boys vs Girls

Good points Renegade!<br><br>How will the goaltender be for the USA? I know the Warriors fire the puck as well as any boys team, so will that cause any problem for the Olympians? <br><br> I hope the boys win decisively! <p></p><i></i>

Re: top 10

Rankings are for the Fans. They do not take into account rivalries or injured players during games. They produce discussion and emotion, but just that. The winners are proven on the ice. I like the rankings, but keep them in perspective. <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p074.ezboard.com/bmnhs.sho...

Re: 8AA

Moorhead will continue to be very good the next few years. Roseau has closed the gap and is getting back to being a "REAL" contender and not just #2 behind Moorhead.<br><br> Next year, Roseau could get the #1 seed, depending how the Spuds/ Rams series goes. <p></p><i></i>

#1 vs unranked

Roseau not only has to knock off the #1 seed in the section, but arguably the #1 team in the state. For an unranked team to pull off the upset, would be remarkable to say the least. If both teams play to their potential, then the Spuds win! If the Spuds leave anything at home the Rams have a chance,...

Before open enrollment coaches and communities recognized talent from other teams.

Before open enrollment, that is exactly what the "good" players had to do, stay home and play with "inferior" players. Didn't seem to hurt too many careers back then! <p></p><i></i>

Against common sense!

Petey made the point as clear as possible. The only ones who feel this is "against the grain" are those who seem to have to justify the A/Tier II/B tournament as a championship tournament. It is, at best, a tournament of 2-3 very good teams that could possibly be the best teams in the state of MN. <...
