Way out west... I do believe Michigan and Minnesota are both in the top 5. :) Where is North Dakota in the rankings? You picked out North Dakota, why? Because they appeared to support your point? Are you not overlooking the elephant in the room? SCSU? Wasn't it just two years ago that Ohio State wa...

Three Big Ten teams now ranked in the Top 5 - quality over quantity! http://www.startribune.com/sports/blogs/227740891.html Tired subject, boys. #-o Minnesota is the only Big Ten program that has a legitimate shot at the national championship, this year. Michigan is okay. The rest is extremely run-...

Funny thing, Wikipedia had recorded the St. Cloud/Minnesota share of the 2012/2013 title, well before either of their games (Or UND's) were over.

You do realize that there were 19,000 people at the Xcel Friday and 17,000+ last night with big statewide TV audiences for this Tournament that you believe needs to be fixed. Great numbers, as always. But, that doesn't mean it's the best one can do. I'm guessing the greater percentage of those folk...

Re: Private vs Public

In the end whats the big deal about how, where and why families choose to send their kids to Play Hockey. Fact is these teams will be made up high school students. Oh well... Personally, I don't believe high school students should be treated as commodities. Frequently, you hear high school students...

Re: Private vs Public

...open enrollment makes every school private period.. Not so fast. [-X Open enrollment is not a given option for every public school in the state. In fact, fewer schools offer it, than don't. It's also disingenuous to compare the average high school to many private schools, particularly the ones t...

......never in my life did I think I would be pulling for Edina but I was because that program still does it the old fashioned way with their own home spun kids.. Exactly.

For a lot of the kids, it isn't a decision based just off of playing hockey, it's a tradition. Sure, a tradition of competitive advantages. I don't blame kids for wanting to go to a school that pulls in hockey talent. Their chance at success is greater, as are their developmental opportunities. How...

STA is really showing everyone what Class A hockey is all about. It's crazy what they have done with such a small enrollment. I don't know what their formula is, but these outstate teams have no excuse, they just don't have the "magic" that STA has. If only EGF had desire, decent coaching, or even ...

So from 1945-1968 teams from the Cities (actually just St. Paul Johnson) won 4 of the 22 titles. All others were Northern Schools.

Not sure it ranks that high but sure was entertaining compared to the rest of the boring first round games.

Why don't you email the big ten commissioner and the presidents of all big ten teams? That's probably who you should complain to.

Wins over Minnetonka and BSM to get here? Wayzata is tested, and prepared. Centennial's program has always been strong, but just not a premier one. Thanks for stopping in, Centennial. Enjoy the stay, while you're still here.

Wayzata 3-1
