Re: A Rankings for 11/24/19

Class A Weekend Thoughts- Stock Rising for Tomorrow- #1 Hermantown- Great win over a very good Lake Conference AA Super Giant Wayzata. The Hawks look to be the cream of the crop yet again in Class A. #5 Warroad- Dominated what looks to be an over-hyped Cathedral Team. Warriors are back and they are...

Tuesday Class "A" Big Game Recaps: #6 Orono Defeats #15 Monticello 3-2 The Moose show they should not be overlooked in Section 5A. They jumped out to a 2-0 lead after 1 period only to see it slip away. Big loss for Section 5A in their quest to gain the Section's first-ever seed at the Class A State...

A Rankings for 11/24/19

After Week #1 of Games still hard to make a full poll with some teams yet to start. 1. Hermantown (0-0-0) -The Hawks have been, without a doubt, the state’s most reliable Class A team for years. This week is interesting for the Hawks as they play what may be their best competition in 7A in Eveleth0 ...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

I can confirm the reason Austin Cooley was not eligible for varsity last year is due to the Grand Forks AD deaming him ineligible for Varsity athletics. They would not wave him as being ineligible in MN after his move. MNSHL would not listen to his argument as I understand it even though the family...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

The Motzko kid will not get screwed. The ADs will sign off no problem. All Bob has to say is, "do you want any of your athletes to have a chance to play for the Gophers, while I'm the coach?" Not saying it will come to that, but there is no way any AD would stand in the way knowing that is a possib...

If/when Alex jumps it would make 8AA

north to south
Roseau
Bemidji
Moorhead
Brainerd
Alex
St Cloud
and the two more metro area teams
St Mikes
Rogers

That would be good.
Sartell will be at AA before Alex. Sartell is growing at crazy rate I expect to see them in 8AA in the next cycle.

Re: Worst AA/A sections 1-8, 2019

Here’s my shot at ranking the strongest Class A sections, based on competitiveness near the top. There is a pretty clear gap between the top three sections and the others, though 5A is always an interesting ride. 1. 8A EGF, Warroad, TRF, Cannon Fodder 2. 6A SCC, Alexandria, Sartell, Little Falls 3....

Class A Guy - two more adds to watch: 1) South St. Paul - was in section semi's last year in Section 4A - Should have a solid first line with two very good D men.

Some of those teams may be in SCC conference, therefore they have to play them. Each AA Conference has dogs as well. Those are the teams they should crush. Looks like the Aa schools have figured out that there are some good teams in A and it is a benefit to play them. That is why the dumb QRF mesns...

Re: Pre Pre-season (summer) 2019-2020 Single A rankings

Agreed. Class A is growing. Lots of class A programs up here. I think Greenway’s defeat of Hermantown last winter in section semifinal jumped 7A alone, ahead 10 years. Hermantown will be, forever a never and ever, dominant in class A playoffs and A state tournament. Maybe more small A programs will...
