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.

      Subject: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update

      Models: 2007 Buick Rainier

      2007-2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Trail Blazer
      2007-2008 GMC Envoy, Sierra, Yukon
      2008 Pontiac G8
      2007-2008 Saab 97x
      with a 5.3L or 6.0L Aluminum Block V8 Engine
      and AFM (Active Fuel Management)
      RPOs LC9, LH6, L76, or LFA


      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      This PI was superseded to include revise the affected RPO codes, specify that this is for Aluminum Block Engines only, update models and provide a general update on the status of this investigation in step 5. Please discard PIP4574M.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

      Condition/Concern:
      Some customers may complain that their vehicle has been using approximately 1 quart of oil every 500-1,000 miles. In most cases, the customer will advise that this did not start until the engineaccumulated approximately 30,000 miles or more. In some cases, the customer may note that this is more apparent when driving at highway speed. In rare instances, a SES light and engine misfire may be encountered with a P0300 DTC.

      Upon inspection, an oil fouled spark plug(s) may be noted. In most cases, static compression and cylinder leakage testing will appear normal. Excessive oil may or may not be found in the intake manifold.

      In most cases, this is the result of stuck oil control rings. Generally, the stuck oil control rings are the result of excessive oil on the cylinder walls. The excessive oil can come from the PCV system and/or the AFM pressure relief valve in the oil pan.

      Recommendation/Instructions:
      If this concern is encountered, follow the steps below:

      Visually inspect the entire engine and the underside of the vehicle for any evidence of oil leaks and repair them as necessary.
      Inspect the fresh air hose/pipe that is attached to the RF (passenger side) valve cover and all related connections for restrictions, such as plastic casting flash or a pinched hose, and repair as necessary. A restriction in this area may cause excessive crankcase vacuum and oilconsumption through the PCV vacuum tube.
      If the truck has an engine misfire and a spark plug that is obviously oilfouled, skip to step 4 since this proves that it has an obvious oilconsumption concern. If not, perform an oil consumption test as outlined in the latest version of oil consumption of 01-06-01-011 to verify the concern before proceeding to step 4. Allow the vehicle to sit on a level surface with the engine off for at least 10 minutes to allow the entire engine to drain back to the oil pan before checking the engine oillevel and adding oil. Compare the oil consumption test results to one of the scenarios below to determine further direction:
      • If oil consumption is Less than 1 quart of oil every 2,000 miles and no low oil light has been experienced, no repairs should be performed as this should be considered acceptable oil consumption as outlined in the latest version of 01-06-01-011.

      • If oil consumption is Less than 1 quart of oil every 2,000 miles but the customer has experienced a low oil light, refer to the latest version of PIP3959 for a potential low oil light sensor concern.

      • If the dealership verifies that oil consumption is More than 1 quart every 2,000 miles, perform the steps below as necessary:

      Determine if the engine has been ingesting oil through the PCV system by removing the intake manifold and measuring how much oil can be poured out of the throttle body opening with the throttle bodyremoved. It is normal to get a couple of teaspoons of oil out of the intake. If the engine has been ingesting oil through the PCV system, several ounces of oil will be measured, many times as much as a 1/4-1/2 quart.
      • If the engine HAS NOT been ingesting oil through the PCV system, go to step 5.

      • If the engine HAS been ingesting oil through the PCV system, inspect the PCV baffle as outlined in the rest of Step 4 below:

      4a. Remove the LH (driver's side) valve cover and inspect the PCV baffle drain holes shown below to see if they are plugged with hardened oil deposits. If they are plugged, replace the valve cover, ensure that the customer is changing their oil according to the maintenance schedule in their owner's manual, and re-evaluate the concern. Generally, this would not be a concern until several thousand miles have accumulated.

      4b. With the LH (driver's side) valve cover removed, inspect the PCV baffle to ensure that it is properly sealed to the valve cover by flipping it over and adding a little oil to the corner of the valve cover as shown below. The oil should stay in place as shown on the 2 outer valve coversbelow. If the oil drains into the PCV baffle as pointed out on the middle valve cover below, replace the valve cover. Generally, if this is the cause of the concern, it would have been present early in the life of the vehicle or shortly after valve cover replacement.


      Important: If Step 4a or 4b led to valve cover replacement, perform Step 4b again on the replacement valve cover before installing it.


      • 4c. If the engine HAS been ingesting oil through the PCV system but the valve cover passed the tests outlined above, the engine may have an over-aggressive lifter that is causing the oil ingestion through the PCV system. Sometimes the lifter may be doing this intermittently so it is not always possible to isolate one by inspecting the lifter flow with the driver's valve cover removed. As a result, it is suggested to replace all 8 of the left/driver bank lifters due to the oil in the intake and re-evaluate the oil consumption concern. The right/passenger side lifters should not cause oil in the intake so there is no need to replace them. If the vehicle returns with excessive oil consumption but is no longer ingesting oil through the PCV system, it most likely has stuck oilcontrol rings as outlined in Step 5.

      If the engine HAS NOT been ingesting oil through the PCV system and there are no obvious valve seal concerns, this is most likely the result of the AFM pressure relief valve in the oil pan spraying oil on the bottom of the cylinders when active fuel management is on. This may eventually cause the oil control rings to stick and increase the rate of oilconsumption. As outlined in the July 2010 GM STC Service Know-How Emerging Issues Seminar (10210.07D), a related bulletin is going to be released to repair this by cleaning the oil control rings and installing a shield over the AFM pressure relief valve. This bulletin was scheduled for a July 2010 release but the bulletin is still going through the final stages of the release process. At this time, it is on track for a mid-August release date. Once released, you will be able to find the new bulletin in the New Bulletins Section of Service Information and this PI will be updated to include the bulletin number as well.
      If you would like to view the July 2010 GM STC Service Know-How Emerging Issues Seminar (10210.07D) mentioned above, you can find it by following this path:

      • Go to the GM Training page. (If necessary, there is a link to this page at GM Global Connect "Dealerworld")

      • Enter your Training Person ID and Password.

      • Click the "Service Know-How/TECHAssist" Link

      • Click the "Emerging Issues" Link

      • Click the "Searchable Streaming Video" Link

      • Click the "10210.07D - July 2010 Emerging Issues" Link

      • Click the 9th Link down for High Oil Consumption

      Notice: Piston and Ring sets should no longer be replaced for this concern unless it is absolutely necessary. If stuck oil control rings are found and you decide to replace all 8 pistons and all 8 piston ring sets, we DO NOT recommend honing or deglazing the cylinder walls due to the great variation between equipment, machine shops, and technicians performing these repairs. This is because it is generally unnecessary and can induce unnecessary cylinder wall and/or piston ring damage if it is done incorrectly or not cleaned thoroughly. The cylinder walls just need to be cleaned thoroughly with brake cleaner before the new piston and ring sets are installed. At this time, you may also experience a back order situation if you order new pistons and rings.
