That's really gotta burn Crean!
When on earth is the WIAA going to adopt a shot clock?

no shot clock! If it ain"t broke, don't fix it!!!
Haven't noticed much issue with teams milking the clock at State this year. So, I'm a little surprised this came up.
Stick to college, Rodey.
See, I'm not necessarily referring to intentionally milking it.
Without a shot clock, possessions can drag out forever. There's not really a sense of urgency in terms of scoring. A possession can virtually go on forever until the defense gets tired enough to make a mistake or the offense gets sloppy.
If you can play 35 seconds of great defense, you should be rewarded for that.
How about 45 seconds of great offensive flow?
I think, in high school, if you're playing that great of defense, you'll force a TO more often than not in under a minute's time.
Keep in mind, you're watching the best of the best here....there are 100s of schools in the state where a shot clock is hardly necessary.
I wouldn't be opposed to a 40-second shot clock, per se, but there's a lot of logistics in the way at this current time.
I just think possessions that drag out for a minute take away from the game.
I applaud teams like any early-mid 90s Adams-Friendship team for being able to effectively milk out possessions that last a couple of minutes and yet still score at a very efficient rate, but it's incredibly boring to watch and I don't think it's good, fundamental basketball.
Lulling a team to sleep by constantly swinging the ball, wearing them and then getting a cheap bucket? No thanks.
Amazing near full court shot!

I only had Hot Chocolate at the Black River Falls game today, but it really hit the spot. Had to save room for pizza at Rosario's after the game.

Most wrestling tourneys have better food than most football games. Plus, the kids at wrestling tourneys are hungrier!
Many years ago, Burlington Catholic Central had a great concession stand, but I haven't been there in fifteen years, so don't know their current status. They had hot beef sandwiches for a while.
Absolutely agree about wrestling tourneys having great food! Kaukauna puts on a good spread in their cafeteria during the Cheesehead tourney, and RV Wrestlebackers make sure nobody goes home hungry at their little kids tourney. But to me, nothing beats the smell of something on the grill as you enter a football stadium on a Friday night.

I can't let my trip to Cuba City go without mentioning the excellent grilled concessions!
Burgers, Steak Sandwiches & Pork Chops the size of a football!!
They rank right up there with Nekoosa's hot dogs, brats from River valley or Menasha, and the cookies at Menomonie!
Waunakee popcorn too!!

Great job on the turnaround, Osceola!!
Black River Falls had a resurgence too, going from 1-8 to 9-0. Excellent job by Coach Jim Bible and his Tiger staff!!
Home Game Seeding

It is also about field conditions. Most teams have grass fields obviously, and there could be the potential for 4-5 home games in a row plus lower level games over a fairly short amount of time. If weather is bad as it often is, some of those fields are in bad shape already late in the year, let alone playing several home games in a row on them.
The other part is that there is the feeling that if a team is seeded lower and springs the upset, they should be rewarded with a home game.
All of those things play into the decision, although I think we'll soon see home teams host Level 1 & 2 and then 3 & 4 as neutral sites.
I hope they go with the higher seeds hosting the first two rounds. 10 of the remaining 25 top seeds are on the road for Level 2.
