Is it just me, or did Fargo kind of sneak up on us this year?  In my case, it's partially due to Brandon attending Disney instead of Fargo, but I heard almost nothing on TOM or other national sites leading up to the tournament.

How was the competition compared to previous years?

I heard Brandon HS is boycotting Fargo due to their state org issues.

I've heard similar things, but not from an official source.

I think Fargo has lost some of its appeal. I think it started when graduating Seniors started foregoing Fargo (sorry couldnt resist) to enroll early iand begin working out at their new college over the summer. The collegiate High School National tournament, FloNationals and other tournaments are becoming more prestigious and they dont take place in late July. I think a lot of graduating Seniors want more than just a month break before starting college.

You are correct, however it still is "the" tournament.
Bunch of snowflakes run this board, sad how the mods cater to people that support one political party.
