Re: AA Rankings for 12/22/19

Anyone know if any other top 10 team only runs 2 lines? Rosemount runs 2 lines 75% of the time. Both loses were against teams that ran 4 lines against them. Rosemount did not look tired in the 3rd. They took it to Andover pretty good in the 3rd. Rosemount’s had much better scoring chances. Andover’...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

The section uses QRF because Grand Rapids got "screwed" by the coaches in the 2017 vote. As much as people like to blame the southern coaches for using QRF, it was Rapids that initiated, lobbied for, and drove the change. And, as much as people may want it, there is no chance that there will be a fa...

I am pretty sure it is a done deal for this season. I am curious whether they have agreed to use QRF beyond this year. It’s a 2 year agreement to use it. Hopefully they vote again on it end of next year, but seems like the southern coaches like it which would give 5-4 votes to use it. I'm don't thi...

Only 7AA is using it and it was voted on by the schools. East and Marshall were the only 2 schools to vote against using it. The thought was it would eliminate any posturing like having Rapids as the 4 seed last year. If it is continued to be used teams could look at who they schedule if section ga...

Re: Elite player to Hermantown

I don't think Hermantown should move up. I do believe Cloquet and Duluth Marshall should play where they belong: A. Cloquet and Marshall will never get a wiff of the state tourney playing with the big boys. If they do, it will be once every 10- 20 years. And no chance to win the ship at state.[/quo...

I'm saying that there are some logical reasons for leaving early if a kid is emotionally and mentally prepared for it. ... It's a trade-off. There's no "right" decision, just a decision. I think most high-end kids (and their parents) DO realize this. A growing number of kids/families are also choos...
