Not high school related……

My gosh! What a college football weekend! Starting with Oklahoma/Texas, going on to Iowa/Penn St, then Michigan/Nebraska and Alabama/Texas A&M. College football is, in my opinion, better than the NFL by far. The atmosphere at Kinnick must have been incredible, not to discount Memorial in Lincoln or Kyle Field in College Station.

Good Grief, Nebraska will play 4 top 10 teams.

Section 2 5A is stacked.
Even Waconia is a decent team.

When was the last time a team won by 58 one week and lost by 55 the next? Yikes.

When is the last time a 5A team was put into running time by. 2A team? Add Esko and East into the mix…… this has to bleed over into hockey….it just does.

Mahtomedi and Andover get screwed by QRF.

In Section 4
#1 plays 5 and 6 plays 7???

In Section 7
Duluth East needs to play a AAAAA (5A) team at least once (maybe twice) during the season.
Every year they get a higher seed than deserved and it makes things lopsided in the play-offs.
This year with 5 games with 4A teams and 3 with 3 A teams.
With a loss (lopsided) to a 3A team (a good team but...)
Drop two of the 3A games and travel a little bit to pick up 5A games.

I've thought about doing this for football and for baseball, but man, there are a lot of teams playing in Minnesota! A heck of a lot more than hockey, so this would be pretty labor intensive. On the other hand, it's not like I have a job to drive to every weekday :mrgreen:

I believe it is 300+ Schools that play football.

QRF takes a lot of heat but given the provincial nature of football I don’t know football is worse off for using it.

Caledonia’s reign of terror is over……no one is more relieved than Minneapolis North.

An educated guess from me makes the Awesome Blossoms from Blooming Prairie with longest winning streak in the state now.

The number of lopsided 6A games surprised me. The imbalance between the SW and NE Metro is striking.

I don't think it is the QRF system as much as the lack of scheduling games within a section.
