  1. With that late of a 2nd home game I don't see attendance average being a whole lot better next year. It seems that oddly enough when weather is decent for tailgating more people end up going indoors to watch the game. As season wears on attendance dips. Though I expect that SDSU game to be well attended as I'm betting it's potato bowl.

    This point times a thousand. Summit scheduling is something awful. Never knowing what day it will be. Seriously weekday games in the early afternoon??? I am cancelling my season tickets as I was able to make it to 3 matches this year.
  3. That's where I was thinking this could be a huge issue.

    Gameday will be at Minnesota next weekend.
  5. Anyone hear why they went for a FG on first and ten with 24 seconds left and 2 timeouts?

    Good on the fans. Seems like the loudest game I've heard all year from any fan base.

    Recruiting and retention seems to be the issue. Which comes back to coaching. Volleyball players seem to really quit and transfer at a way higher rate than any other sport. Which does make sense when so few play. Did Pryor win with Hardee recruits?
  8. I believe Minnesota boys hockey starts on Monday Nov 11. Guessing ND is behind that by a week (or two). Any big story lines this year? Any team challenge Central? Where does RR end up? For my curiosity, can a small ND town like Grafton ever win again? I believe EGF has a former RR goalie that should've played last year for them. They also have Panzer and hopefully Parker is healthy finally. I see on schedule that Bismarck has been added. Seems odd add as playing GF teams 4 times already is a lot of out of state. Most of their other opponents out of section are state participants so a challenging schedule again.

    Love to see Gameday go there, but I think you're right about them going south. However end of the year if umtc has 0 or 1 loss they play Wisconsin for Big Ten West title and oddly enough for rivalry weekend there aren't many other ranked games. Though Michigan beating Notre Dame today may put their Ohio State game at the top on that final weekend.

    How come this one isn't home and home like in the past? Or has that been an every other year sort of thing?
  11. This is really bad, but I only remember couple other than school stuff from last night. Shut up and Dance Gimme Some Loving (staple of band) Hey Song (Rock and Roll Part 2) Fight on Sioux (has words and played before team comes out of locker room) School Song In Heaven There is No Beer Couple of my faves that they have played in past: The Pretender by Foo Fighters Holiday by Green Day
  12. I'd say it was like 60% full. Students filled their lower bowl. Rest down low was about half. Upper looked like the $10 helped, but I was hoping for more.
  13. My understanding is the MN schools don't get any choice in who they get to play in football. They are thrown into a conference and then only get a couple out of section games, but I think even those are assigned "rivalry" games. This was all down a few years back, because some schools had such a hard time scheduling. And I certainly could be wrong on this, but I know Pequot and Park Rapids are on EGF's schedule every year and Pequot is like 4 hours away. I can't imagine the school truly wants to go that far to play. Roseau used to be on, but got switched out when they dropped down a class.
  14. Going to hijack a for a second since it got brought up, but Minnesota really needs to adjust DL's schedule as they are way to big and good for the local AAA teams that they have to play. And none of the AAA teams want to play them but are forced to. I think it was a year or two ago I was looking at their and Fergus schedule and Fergus had to play up a class multiple times and down only once while DL had to play down like 3 times and up only once. Just checked and DL only plays one game against a 4A school which is their classification and the rest are against AAA competition with a school or two being half their size. They don't have any control of this, but it's strange and will obviously affect their players getting recruited. Edit: Forgot to mention that Fergus moved down to AAA this year.
  15. Last year East Side played one of toughest single A schedules in the state. I think they played something like 7 or 8 of the top 10. Add to it the Grand forks schools Moorhead and roseau and couple other AA schools. Crookston is one of the few not so good that they are still playing as they dumped all the others except maybe LOW. Yes warroad and trf haven't been as good the last couple years. Doesn't mean they'll be crap for next 4. In all honesty while AA section 8 has gotten better in past most of the best teams Moorhead faced were the northern small schools. They and Roseau used to be the only good teams in that section. My guess is panzer will play couple years and then go juniors.
