Re: Early Departures 2020-2021

What a PLEASE BAN ME Madison has been for a long time now. Just speculating but they are either folding or building from the ground up, which may be the best choice. The Caps have indeed been a dumpster fire pretty much since the start of their reboot. Sadly, Suter has run that franchise into the g...

Re: No State Tournament at the X this Spring....

Not a shocker, but nonetheless disappointing to actually see in print. Hopefully those “culminating events” will be a somewhat satisfying resolution to the various sports seasons. Those COVID installment fees are going to be rough on school athletic departments, and I’m sure student participation fe...

3A 2020-21 Season

The final Class A section that has yet to be previewed, and what tends to the weakest section looks to be even more down than usual. Hutchinson romped through the section tournament last year, but suffered huge graduation losses. Marshall’s talented goalie is gone. New Ulm looks to be the most compl...

5A 2020-21 Season

OK, I know no one wants to do this, but I’ll bring it up anyway. This section will probably be messy again, but more like messy ugly than messy fun. After an epic section final, the top few programs are down this year. Monticello Chisago Lakes North Branch Princeton Monticello : I guess they’re the ...

Re: 1AA outlook

North loses nearly every player of consequence and will be rebuilding. I wouldn’t be shocked to see Hastings finally break the Lakeville title game monopoly, but South should roll through everyone regardless. Edit: duh, I just remembered that Hastings was in the 1AA final last year, and nearly took ...

Jackson Hallum commits to Michigan
Interesting. The Wolverines seem to be making some recruiting inroads into Minnesota under Pearson, whereas old Red essentially ignored the state.

Congratulations to Hallum. He is an electric player and a great get for Michigan.

Hermantown vs Monticello Maple Lake,
Moose road a packed Xcel crowd to OT in 98, Hermantown came from behind and had a goal called off. One of the greatest modern day games.
I think packed Xcel would not be quite accurate. There was not an Xcel in 98 what year?

Re: State Games To Watch Again or For 1st Time

Speaking of epic OT games, I found highlights of the 1985 4OT quarterfinal between Jefferson and Minnetonka , the only state tournament game I’m aware of that extended to a second day. I felt bad for Tonka, since they carried play through the first three OT periods during the evening session (and it...

It's fun to hack on Hermantown in A for sure, but I do have to involve them in two games that I've always thought were as entertaining as it gets when it comes to St. Paul: -2010: Hermantown vs. Mahtomedi. Lots of scoring, the emotion of the waved off goal. First A game I remember where they opened...

College football is toast for the fall. The MAC was the first domino to fall, and the Big Ten and PAC 12 are expected to announce cancellations this week.
