Re: AA QF: White Bear Lake vs. #2 Blaine

I've wondered for a while what would happen first. Would Moorhead win their first title, or WBL their first quarterfinal game? Maybe both will happen in the same year? Nah. Lee Boom! Lee from the top rope! Well, nobody had mentioned it like it's the elephant in the room or something. I just wanted ...

I wonder, are people voting for North Branch because they think they will win or because they want them to win?
Yeah, these polls turn out to be kind of a popularity poll sometimes.

Re: Poster of the Year (Rounf 2)

Votes will be counted through Sunday after the close of the tournament. The finalists will be announced and the final vote will commence. Tie-breaker should go to the admins :mrgreen: Lee Admins will get the tie-breakers. And if we can't agree, in true QRF fashion, we'll flip a coin. :) Lee

For you, an autographed copy of Indians vs CEC Jacks hockey program.

Or anything else, by crayon or other medium.
I think I had one of those. We call them "toilet paper" :P

Re: Class A State Seeding

Greenway has been to state the first year of the two class system. They won it in 1992. Technically, it wasn't Class A in 1992. They had the Tier I/Tier II thing going on for two years, with Tier II being sort of like the consolation tourney for teams seeded lower than eighth in each section. It wa...

Re: AA state tourney seeding

In A Greenway was seeded, it seems in sections record matters, at state not so much. I hated seeding when it started and it seems every year I miss the predetermined draw more and more. Sure on a rare occasion you might have the “top” two teams play each other but you avoided the farce of seeding t...

Re: AA state tourney seeding

Those of you that are applauding Pagestat for getting the seedings right need to take a step back and look at the big picture.

Re: AA state tourney seeding

I have lotta respect for PageStat, more than any other statistical model. Rarely has a big outlier, whereas QRF always has a few big outliers. But this year WBL was an outlier all year long. Lee gave me a lengthy explanation earlier this year on why WBL ranked so low at PS 20+ , with only 4 losses....

Re: AA state tourney seeding

Speaking of "the draw", what would the pairings look like if it was still the seven-year rotation in effect way back when?

(7) Duluth East vs (3) St Thomas Academy
(8) Moorhead vs (1) Lakeville South
(5) Blaine vs (6) Eden Prairie
(2) Edina vs (4) White Bear Lake

Re: AA state tourney seeding

Based on past performance, WB should be unseeded. The Bears are only 51 minutes away from Mariucci, which apparently is their favorite place to play in March.

Re: AA state tourney seeding

I agree that EP’s 3 seed is high. Even doing the regular season, I thought their state ranking was a tad high. The talent was there, but just never lived up to expectations on paper for whatever reason. Maybe it was Jensen trying to be the whole team. Before the seeds were released, I was thinking ...

EGF was never Class AA. In pre 2 class, I don't think they were ever at a state tourney at the same time. Gr...

PageStat does a great job. Coaches are kind of screwed, there was no way you could legitimately vote Hastings not #1, yet logic would make them them the #3 or#4 seed. In this way district scheduling like football does is an advantage. Congrats to PageStat, it has shown a superior predictor to the c...
