If you two want to give me Hibbing +2 in a potential Apollo rematch at the X I am more than willing to take that.

Do you not understand how a point spread works. I have Hibbing +2. That basically means I have Hibbing to win and the score is Hibbing 2 Apollo 0 at the start of the game. Seems pretty simple but then again you claim I had Apollo at 6 when that is here they where on myhockey.com.

My point you missed is. Hibbing and Apollo are very close. Apollo won 3-1. What I am saying if they were to meet at the x would you give me Hibbing and 2 goals as a spread? I would take that get all day long. With the TV timeouts super Scotty would be a bigger influence in the game. So if and I mean...

I'm of the school that a game say Thursday would have been a good thing. Can't say 10 days off is going to be a good thing for the raiders. I will take Hibbing 4-3

Wow 1st off by posting myhockey s rankings from a given day you state that means I have them at 6. Nope. I also posted the combined ranking of the myhockey site, pagestat, and LPH. Is that my personal ranking. Nope. As far as giving Apollo credit any team in the top 10 is getting credit. Do I believ...

Well you did not include the whole conversation. Never and I mean never did I say Apollo would not contend. Never did I say Hibbing would crush them. In fact if you dig you will see where I gave Apollo the edge based on being at home. It was a nice win. As far as vir they still can give anyone a gam...

I take it you did not read it. It says clearly my hockey rankings which is a posted site and those were there rankings. It is nothing more than another site like pagestat. Go ahead and hold me responsible when they are my prediction of rankings not when it clearly states where they came from. Oh and...

No issue here. Hibbing got beat on the road by what I said was the number three team in the state. Vir got beat by the number 3 team and they are at best 5 in there own sect. That changes nothing

About the only way Hibbing drops out of 2 is a greenway loss followed by a loss to hermantown by a margin of say more than 3. Coaches always use how your doing at the end with more weight than early and that could be a way that greenway could move ahead of Hibbing.

Hsw do this for me. We all know it's just rankings and the further you go down the muddier it gets. Tell me how each of those sections rate based on top 5 and top 10. Don't go any lower as it gets muddy.

Elliot - Thanks for nailing it. Rankings are just that an opinion and not fact but if you were to compile a overall ranking based off pagestat, my hockey, and lets play hockey and say used the top 20 in each and give 20 pts for 1st, 19 for 2nd and so on the add em all up and divide by 3 you would ge...

Thats a fair question. My definition of deepest is the Section that has the most teams that would be comp in any other section to win that section. So if a team was to get moved to a new section today could they contend to come out of that section to the state tourn. Did Apollo show a chink in the a...

Elliot do you see any of those upsets having a chance to take out a herm or breck? I guess at this point I doubt it. I don't see Litchfield, EGF, or Catherdral taking out either breck or herm

Yup Elliot is on board other than I would say deepest also. I feel bad a fan from sec 6 feels slighted but give a reason why I'm wrong. Personally I don't care if you like me.

My guess is 2001 greenway probably had the best chance to win the class A as they took 3rd in AA and lost in the semis in ot. Hibbing I can't say has ever really been near the top and Virginia had a few great players but could never climb the mountain.

Well if was only the champ that mattered every year only 2 teams had a good year then. Hmmmm. I disagree Being competitive and having some kind of say in the process is what every team longs for. I also disagree that sec 7 had 3 in the top 7 in the last few years. This is the deepest 7 has been. It'...
