Opening night of the season is fast approaching, so we're going to have a little bit of a contest. Think you're right wicked smart? Do you know basketball better than anyone? Do you love a good 33 game parlay? Well I've got the contest for you. If you can correctly
Is it time to promote programs based on something other than enrollment?
It's time to hand out some gold balls in football. Who's got the edge?
We've got a first draft of the new classification plan and it's...certainly a plan.
What happens when we train the Model on football?
Sometimes I get an idea in my head and I go down a rabbit hole in Excel. Honestly, that's how I learned Excel in the first place. This took roughly an hour and will be easy enough to update. Like this? Subscribe! During the NBA's Bubble playoffs, I did a
The season is fast approaching. Who do you think is going to be good this year? Feel free to skip regions you don't know.
Guess who's back?
A historic crossover game in the County and a rivalry game in the Midcoast.
We live quiet lives up here in Maine, partially sequestered from the rest of the country. It’s nice, but sometimes, as the old joke goes, it takes a while for things to get to us, which can lead to things being done the way they are because “that’s
Football reclassification is in the news again, as the MPA considers how to shuffle the deck chairs on a ship where overall numbers are slowing sinking and an increasing number of schools are jumping into the 8-man lifeboats.
Zach Keene was fired and the parents insisted he stay. What happened next might surprise you.
The MPA is voting on classification tomorrow at the Samoset Resort in Rockport. Let's just get it out of the way first and say that the MPA's football proposal is a joke. Anyway, the basketball numbers have been rumored for awhile and within 5 minutes of asking online, I had
Ever since Maine basketball went to a 5-class system, it's been popular to assume that the schools in AA are far and away the best of the best, clearly the be all and end all of high school basketball in the state. You see this in Facebook comments from people
We leave pretty insular lives here in Maine. Sure, we go to Boston for the occasional Celtics/Red Sox/Patriots/Bruins game, but for the most part that's pretty much it. People in Portland famously won't leave their city unless they have to and folks in the County need a
I don't know if you've heard, but the Caribou boys have a long drive to play in the Gold Ball Game. They'll have to drive 301 miles each way to Portland, which just happens to be further than their opponent will travel all year long (playoffs included!). Cape Elizabeth has
The good folks of Mars Hill had every reason to be hopeful for the C North tournament, as both their boys and girls teams entered the tournament as the #1 seed. That generally means you're in for at least one solid tourney run and several trips to Bangor. Yesterday, they
It's the final day of the regular season. Normally, this is pretty chaotic, but this year is pretty settled. Except, of course, for the A North Boys, which has 4 teams fighting for 3 spots. (The A North girls are very settled). So let's run through this before I get
In case you didn’t see this. If you followed the tournament then you probably know why this technical foul call is controversial...but here we go again. pic.twitter.com/EGEQmracbS — Travis Lee (@TLee_WMTW) February 24, 2018 This is a joke. It’s an embarrassment to the state.
Ever wonder if a game is going to be worth the drive?
Let's talk about school size, shall we? Ask anyone and they'll tell you that the bigger a school is, the better they are at basketball. There's some sound logic in this. The more kids you've got, the more basketball players you've got to choose from when putting together your team.
The other day, another fan base found the site, which led to a spike in traffic, which led to more people sharing, which led to more people assuming there’s a level of opinion and/or bias at play in the rankings. There isn’t. This happens all the time,
