Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

Just curious, how old is Coach Randolph? He's been coaching a long time, but I don't have a clue how old he is

Re: 20-21 schedules

Football just put out their schedules last week,they start a week later than usual...MEA break plays the last week on a Wednesday. This year MEA is week 7 and the next Tuesday is week 8. This will kill athletic budgets! The MSHSL gets dumber by the quarter. The attendance in every school is far hig...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

GET A LIFE ALREADY, FOR GOD’s SAKE! YOU’RE RUINING THIS FORUM! Dude. You don't like it? Go away. Or add something. Pretty simple. I’ve stated this before on here. AA teams should not schedule Hermantown until they opt up. Follow Coach Randolph’s lead! It's a good idea if the AA teams want to help f...

But these teams played class A hockey had success and then moved up when they outgrew class A hockey. They realized they didn’t belong in class A.

Re: AA tournament not a state tournament?

Dwindling enrollments become an issue in northern MN and the MSHSL, as bad as they may be at many things, has to try to fill the sections. I'm sure the STMA's, Rogers, Elk Rivers, Andovers, Forest Lakes etc...would rather stay near the metro, where they play most of their regular season games, but t...

The unseeded are then paired in their match-ups via a blind draw, is that how this works? "Blind draw" yeah. Don't know how blind it is or not, but that's what they say.
