Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Attendance continued With five schools that close to the X you don’t think that had no effect on attendance? Also with the dominance of the other three schools. Kids and families love to watch dominant teams. With Hermantown, SCC, and Warroad with great fan bases! You think that had no effect on at...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

The attendance argument made ZERO sense. Yes, you are right that 3 of the 4 in the Final 4 were regular teams that have been in it a lot. Thus their Fan Bases have always been there and not set records!! They set the Class A Record because the talent in the Final 4 was better and deeper. I am sorry...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Hoping Hibbing can get back to glory! I'm not. I'm hoping small schools like HM will take a long look at their programs and realize they are ruining the Class A tournament by playing in AA. With some creative geographical section placement, we could have Hermantown, SCC, STA, BSM, HM, HF, and Blake...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

When parity is the result of the best teams being removed from the competition. So you'd like to see STA and BSM move back to A? HM has even fewer students than Hermantown. I can't believe your Pioneers are screwing HS hockey fans out of a better A tournament by selfishly playing in AA. :D Hoping H...

Because Thief River is really a AA program. Makes sense honestly But how will TRF get there? What will they need to do to "just beat Hermantown" and beat the AA champ as a matter of routine? You seem to think it's simple, so please, bestow your wisdom upon us and map out how TRF will get the transf...

Thing is bud, Warroad had a conspiracy against them 20 years ago. Look it up. Marvin brings in players. Not saying it's ok. Give me another example. A few years ago, Hibbing had a top 3 Class A team. Hermantown beat them 8-1 in the playoffs. How much better was Hibbing supposed to get? Polls are ru...
