Highschool State Tournament-08

72 posts in this topic

Who's got a hometown team or former team playing in the state tournament this weekend?

New Ulm Cathedral is back in the State Tournament and will play Springfeild in a Week 2 rematch. This is there 3rd trip to the State Tournament in the last 6 years, (03 and 06). I played in those 2 and now scout for the team, but being as it would mean heading to the Fargo Dome to scout next weeks possible opponent I will be in the stands at this one.

Anyone else going to be taking in some great highschool football action this weekend?

I'm going to be missing football over the weekend, HS, collegiate, and professional with deer hunting in play.

As far as HS, three teams return to defend their 2007 titles: Caledonia in Class AA, Glencoe-Silver Lake in Class AAA, and Eden Prairie in Class AAAAA. Always fun to see how a title defense goes. Also nice to see some teams come back and some schools make their first ever appearance.

Does anybody know if the HS tournament will always be at the dome or if they plan to move it outdoors to the Gophers Stadium? I'm guessing it'll stay in the dome. It's pretty special for MN kids to be playing in the dome, even if the other FB players at the collegiate and professional level don't like it.

I think GSL is going to beat LSH on Friday. Problem with LSH is the players have to play both sides of the ball. Contrary to the GSL players who are either defense or offense, not both.

Give it a couple years and LSH will have the team in place to oust GSL finally.

Aside from atttending the game at Eden Prairie (LSH vs. GSL), I will be heading to St Cloud State to watch the Vermilion Ironmen take on the Mesabi Range Norsemen at Husky Stadium on Sunday for the State Championship.

The Ironmen have been a hard hitting team in the second half of each game. They had a blowout against Fon Du Lac (Cloquet)76-21 and beat Central Lakes College (Brainerd) last Saturday in the final seconds of the game.

Proud to say my son was the one who kicked the extra point to put the Ironmen ontop of CLC 27-26 to win the first game of the play-offs.

If the LSH boys can play some defense like they did against BP last week, the game could be interesting. Especially if we get some snow.

Even though I'm a fan of LSH, I hate to admit I still think GSL will prove to be the better team.

West is in also. Playing St. Thomas at Lakeville North Sat. night. Taking the kids to the game after my oldest ones hockey game in Prior Lake. Nice little excuse to get to the game. Should be a high scoring affair but I guess that depends on the weather a little also. Good Luck to West!!

How about 9 Man?

Cheering for former high school Kittson Central (was Hallock) ((who ended Stephan/Argyle's 78 game winning streak)) over Northland in Fargo and now local school Littlefork/Big Falls over Ada/Borup in Duluth.

Maybe those 2 can meet at State!!

Lep, did you go to the LSH vs. BP game on Halloween? had to miss it because of Halloween and having an 8 year old. Belle Plaine seems to have LS's number this year. Would have been exciting for BP to win but I know that LSH has a better team and BP would not have a chance in heck of winning another game.

Good luck against GSL, I would like to see you guys knock them off once.

Thats why they play the game, GSL could come out and play a terrible first half and LSH could get out in front and build some momentum....Not saying it will happen but it could.

My senior year ('06 season) we were huge underdogs when we went down to Goodhue to play them in the first round of state, everyone said it wouldn't even be close, we would lose by 30 and keeping it under that would be an accomplishment. Jumped out to a 19-7 lead in the second quarter and held on to win in the second half. Thats why they play the game.

Bigeye, as far as LeCenter/NUC go, what a great rivalry this has become in the past 4 or 5 years, 4 playoff games since '04, decided by a total of 8 points. LeCenter was/is a very good team and deserved to win that game just as much as Cathedral did.

Big Dave,

I was there. I was kind of a bittersweet victory for me. Not because BP beat us in the regualr season, but because we won because we kicked a field goal.

My son was the kicker the past 2 years and there was never an emphasis on a kicking game. That changed this year as LSH has been kicking the extra points instead of going for 2.

Also because my son has been kicking for Vermilion and proving the talent was there (he's ranked 17th nationally). On a side note, Garcia who kicked for BP last year is ranked 13th.

Smoken Guns.

The only way they dont win title this year, is if they screw it up for themselves on turnovers or stupid stuff like that.

There just to good of a program!

I wouldn't be too quick to judge the success of the GSL program based on tonight's game considering LSH couldn't get out of their own way.

The GSL program is a far better coached team than LSH. For Turek to continue losing year after year to GSL has to be an embarrassment. But a person would think he would finally figure out how to defend against the GSL offense.

If GSL sees De LaSalle in the final, it will be a close contest.

    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
