Re: A and AA Enrollment Information

You can appeal your classification. Minnesota a River was initially assigned to the same section as New Prague and Eden Prairie. Minneapolis was assigned to an AA section. The appeal process is not defined by the MSHSL.....why can MN River, Minneapolis, and New Ulm opt down but Dodge County can’t?....

Re: Early Departures 2019-2020

Pitlick is openly unsure at this moment. Nothing secret. I’m sure the team and him mutually agreed that since it’s up in the air, no need to have him as captain. As for birthdays, Clay Hanus is a March ‘01, and if he were still in high school he would be eligible to play next year as a senior. No re...

Re: YHH Podcast Finale 2018-2019

Thanks for all the great listening over the year! Out of curiosity, have you guys ever gone back and listened to the previous year’s way too early top 10 and guesses on early departures to see how close you were? I remember a few misses on early departures from last year, but I’m guessing it’s easie...

Re: 16 Subsection Model

It easy to think of this sort of thing in terms of hockey. But the high school league runs many sports. If hockey wants their own deal, basketball probably will too, and girls may be different than boys. So there's that. Now guys here like to get up in arms about seeding the stat tourney. First, it...

Re: 16 Subsection Model

Looks like a great setup. Close enough to regular sections to not shake things up too much but still probably a better way to do it to help avoid top 5 teams not making state. However, you said you reseeded based on QRF for the hypothetical Supersection games, but it looks like you just seeded the t...

Mostly agree with you but Jungels would be the other one who had 2 good games and a quiet final.
That’s true. Good first game and a half. That might be the best of them all actually.

Re: Mr. Hockey and Frank Brimsek Award Finalists

Maybe I’m wrong (not a HS hockey history buff), but it seems like it’s been a while since none of the Mr Hockey candidates really stood out in the state tournament. Koster and Luedtke not in, Donovan knocked out first round, Brodzinski unnoticeable after QF game, Nevers nothing spectacular. Jensen w...

Re: Eden Prairie vs Blaine

No skin in this game, but hate to see a game decided by the refs. The blown no-call that would have given Blaine a 5-3 up two goals and instead ends up with an EP PP was a game-changer.

Re: Realignment theory

This is supposed to be a small realignment, with a big one coming in two more years. It’s a chance to re-look at enrollment numbers for schools on the cusp like Northfield, Mahtomedi, and Waconia (like New Prague two years ago). Generally expect if any of these schools move up to see some 7 or 9 tea...

Re: Play-off Games Saturday 2/23/19

Too bad Chaska couldn't win today. Would have liked to see those guys have a chance against HF to get to the X Good point. One of them would've been a first-timer to state. It was probably Chaska’s last chance for a while. You don’t get four D-1 players on a roster everyday. They’ll lose some and b...

I’m not sure if all #1 seeds in all 8 sections have ever gone on to win their section tournaments but it seems that every year there are surprising upsets.

Re: Section 2AA and 6AA

any idea who would play at what times in the bracket? I do not understand why they wait to post bracket winners? With highest seed choosing, it’s a bit presumptuous to have the 1 seed decide beforehand, so out of fairness to the 8 seed they wait until it’s official. Heck, sometimes 8 seeds win! In ...
