    Now you’re just rubbing it in. :lol:

    Seriously, the whole town is still in disbelief today. My buddy from STMA was announcing the game for a local cable channel and just about lost his mind the last minute, but he had to stay professional.

    My kids were all excited about heading down to US Bank on Thursday to play Eden Prairie in the 6A state semifinals, but that dream is dead. :anger:

    Here are the “highlights”

    I’m really shocked as well. After reading the article in the Star Trib, clearly SMA controlled the whole game until the final 59 seconds. Maple Grove had all the luck any team can ever have in that final 59 seconds.

    The second onside kick the Maple Grove player touches it before 10 yards and it wasn’t called, but that’s no excuse for the complete meltdown STMA had in the final minute on special teams and defense.

    Almost as crazy as the ending in “Harvard beats Yale 29-29”, when Harvard scored 16 points in less than the last minute.

    I know EP was upset as recently as (last year?) but they just smoked a pretty good LN team 35-0 (after staying within 18 of EP in their first meeting). Not sure that CDH (haven’t played EP yet but their season wasn’t that impressive) has enough to withstand them should they get by Tonka, and EP beat the others by 18 (MHS) and 21 (MG) already during the season. The 4A and 5A brackets both have lot of intrigue with a decent amount of geographic spread.

    I’m going to try and go to the afternoon games on Friday. See Apple Valley vs Elk River and then my old high school, SSP and their vaunted triple option offense, take on Cloquet. Hopefully the games are only two hours so I can make it back to campus for the 7:10 puck drop.

    Apple Valley/Elk River @ 2pm and South St. Paul/Cloquet @ 4:30… Could be pushing it. All depends on how the earlier games go.

    If Cowtown gets to the finals I’ll be there.

    Yes, but as with the hockey tourney the last few years, you’ll have to pay for it. prep45.com I believe will have it.

    The stripes have been scared of Grant for years. Rather ‘tuck and squeeze’ and be his friend. Rather than officiating the game.

    They apparently didn’t get the memo today. They missed a couple pretty late hits on the QB today that had Grant fired up.

    Grant cries every game all game long. The guy sheds a few pounds a night in tears alone. Though he quickly forgets all the ‘late’ hits or ‘questionable’ hits by his own players.

    And you know this how? For hockey Tonka has fewer transfers than just about every big school out there and I’d love to see your source regarding this claim in football.

    So, completely unrelated to football, but I have had to go to the bar for the last 3 years to watch the MN State Hockey Tourney because I have either had Dish or 2 years ago I cut the cable completely. Well, tonight I hooked up a HD antenna to my TV in my shop because WiFi is so-so out here and low and behold, I find this game on Channel 45!

    Beyond fricken excited right now! I feel like I just got someone’s login info for every movie channel there is!

    Not a bouncy ball expert, or even a fan, and only caught the last 5 minutes. For those who watched the whole game and know way more about the sport than me, I wonder what your opinion would be on a question I posed months ago, when the votes were decidedly mixed:

    Who would win in a one game playoff, Apple Valley boys or the Minnesota Lynx?

    Like you, and as stated above, I don’t know much (hardly anything!) about basketball. But I think I do have an ability to recognize pure athletic ability, and both of these high school teams had it, in spades. The way their best guys could drive to the basket, and slam it home on the dunk, was very impressive. I just don’t know if the Lynx would have an answer for that kind of height and athleticism.

    First of all it’s Boy’s Basketball, not men. Second of all I’m no expert. Just stating what I see. It’s all a matter of opinion.

    Quicker, faster, and more athletic as well.


    Did either of you two watch the game? And not just 5 minutes.

    If you think some of these athletes are considered boys then you might want to look again.

    And honestly I didn’t see tonight’s game, but I watch plenty of boys high school basketball to know what kind of athletes are out there on the elite teams in Minnesota. Does a small school in Northern Minnesota beat the Lynx? No. But does a top program in the Twin Cities with D-1 prospects littered across the teams beat the Lynx? Yes. Too quick and too physical.

    The only player for Apple Valley you could consider a man is Jones. The two Apple Valley big guys played like boys. Or you could say sissys.

    Agree to disagree… I feel you are underestimating the Lynx vs. Apple Valley. And I could be wrong as well.

    How many of the Lynx can dunk? It’s a fairly good gauge of athletic ability and size.

    A lot of guys could dunk in high school and I couldn’t. I was still a better ball player.

    This question and debate is a moot point. We’ll really never know. You and others have their view and I have mine.

    I did like your original question several months ago. Got to see several opinions.

    I remember the Warroad Boys hockey team beating the 2006 bronze medal winning Women’s Olympic hockey team. A good comparison, or apples to oranges? I don’t know.

    Would be interesting to have that game played again. I think the women’s game has developed lots. And the spectrum of talent is a lot closer now in 2017 than 2006.

    For the first time since 1982 Apple Valley did not qualify for State Wrestling as a team… :shock:

    Since 1983:

    23 State Championships

    12-year state championship streak (2006-2017)

    And from what I have read Minnesota high school wrestling is in the top 10 if not the top 5 for high school wrestling.

    FYP :mrgreen:

    Honestly it’s not that outrageous of a statement but I wouldn’t toot the horn saying wrestling in the state of Minnesota some of the best in the nation. Pennsylvania has overtaken Iowa as the hot spot for high school wrestling in recent years. There is a slight drop off to get to Minnesota, Illinois, and Ohio. After them it’s a huge drop off to California, New Jersey, and Oklahoma and then there is no need to talk about any other state.

    Some high school coaches, specially basketball, are given way to much credit.

    Only the 3 of you who watched the game know what you’re talking about.

    CDH and Daniel Oturu won the state championship over Apple Valley and Tre Jones on a last second (0.5 seconds left) alley oop to Oturu.
