Deep Thoughts…..

I fully understand that I am probably the only person in the state who has SC North #1 in 4A, I also fully understand that Iowa City West has passed every single test and plays an outrageous schedule featuring top notch schools from around the midwest. Finally we are seeing a year where 4A has more than 1 or 2 really good teams. So far it looks like there may be 4 or 5 teams who could all contend for the 4A crown.

Lots of moving around in the 3A poll from the one I published a couple weeks ago. Harlan far and away the best team in 3A right now. 

In 2A, the West Fork/New Hampton game was postponed, as far as I know there has not been a make-up date set for that yet. 

In 1A, Belmond-Klemme is expected to get senior Elijah Kinseth back in their lineup maybe midway through January. Kinseth suffered a traumatic leg injury in football. B-K weathered the storm without him to start 6-0, They are good now…and when he comes back they improve even more in the paint. Big game right out of the holiday break when they face Forest City.
