    2023 MN High School Football season

    Schools could do that, but then they would be banned from post-season play since that is run by the MSHSL. When schools join the MSHSL, they have to abide by all by-laws. As far as I understand, the MSHSL still can be overruled by the legislature, but they are the governing body of high school...

    I like that plan. Allow teams to schedule a more challenging schedule if they feel confident. Or pick up rivalries that may be missed because of section schedules and changes.

    2023 MN High School Football season

    More classes? Let them have 6 classes in the Metro, I don't care. They went to district football because there were a handful of 6A teams that nobody wanted to play. The MSHSL answer? Force all teams into district football because they wanted ALL classes to be the same. I was in those meetings...

    2023 MN High School Football season

    This is exactly the problem with the MSHSL. They don't care about the best team winning state UNLESS it's 6A football. The football coaches were told directly that 6A playoffs is and WILL BE different than for all other levels. But of course when 6A schools were bitching about not being able to...

    ***OFFICIAL wisconsin AT MINNESOTA PAUL BUNYAN AXE RIVALRY GAME LFG IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    This team has a SEVERE lack of talent right now. The eye test doesn't lie. Anyone watching the games this year compared to the last 4-5 years can see this. Anyone that says they still have talent is just being dishonest...

    This might be the slowest overall Gopher's team we have had in 5-6 years?

    A comparison of the OCs of PJ Fleck's career at Minnesota

    I am in the corner of the most important stat for a QB in our offense is accuracy. So I look at our completion percentage yes, but that can be helped with a couple of great receivers (Johnson and Bateman), so I also trust the "eye test" and Kaliakmanis just has too many throws that are missed to...

    What grade would you give Gophers coaches in OSU game?

    I completely agree that we were way outmatched but it is the total lack of any semblance of improvement in ANY area of the offense that gives me so much cause for concern. What area of offense are we better in now than we were in week 1? It seems that our passing game has regressed massively...

    ***OFFICIAL MINNESOTA AT OHIO STATE, LET'S SHOCK THE WORLD IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    Kaliakmanis's accuracy is atrocious. He isn't accurate enough to be a B1G QB. Sorry, but it's true.

    Too Many Transfers to Overcome

    More than we have shown in games again Northwestern, Illinois, and Purdue? Maybe we have lost more to the portal than those teams.

    Too Many Transfers to Overcome

    I understand that we have lost some talent, especially on defense, due to the transfer portal, but are we the only school in the Big Ten that has lost players to the portal? Does anyone have a list of all the B1G schools portal guys so we can compare. How are these other schools not having...

    ***OFFICIAL MINNESOTA AT PURDUE BOUNCE BACK GAME IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    I really thought coming into the season that the recruiting had gotten so much better the last couple of years. It's obvious that the players might be a little more highly rated, but they seem to have very low ceilings... This is bad... Why is it that every single f'ing time in my 50 years...

    ***OFFICIAL MINNESOTA AT PURDUE BOUNCE BACK GAME IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    Kaliakmanis’s accuracy is very concerning. It is one of the most difficult things to fix as a coach.

    ***OFFICIAL MINNESOTA AT PURDUE BOUNCE BACK GAME IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    That was an awesome catch. Just give your receiver a chance. Bell should have had the first one. This is attacking as an offense. Now if the defense can adjust, we can get back in this.

    2023 MN High School Football season

    I agree with this completely. Some communities just have better genetics than others. I know of some schools around ours that continuously grind out 6'1" to 6'4" kids that are strong, lean and can run like deer, along with the occasional big bodied kid. Heck, their girls' VB front line always...

    The zone read is REALLY hard to run if you don’t include the read part.

    Not a great throw but Crooms has to catch that.

    2023 MN High School Football season

    This is also a major problem for football. You're right that parents are investing huge money into those other sports. All for the chance at that scholarship that honestly isn't coming for most of them. All we ask of our players in the off-season is to work out and do some speed work so they...
