Re: Who was better?

USC would be a mistake for Bryce. Too many Orange County stars go there and have their careers killed. Likewise, I feel like Bryce just has a style that is too different from what we've traditionally seen at SC. It feels like an Aaron Corp situation to me for some reason.

Re: Aliso Niguel - Racist?

f the kids were out of line, the school will discipline very quickly. I guarantee you if these were MD, Servite, SM or JSerra kids and the facts were in line with the narrative, the kids would be in very deep doo doo. However, there is other video that disputes the way this story has been reported....

Re: Bosco vs Mater Dei

Also, shout-out to the Bosco fans who were cheering really loud when Bosco was on offense. I think they caused a couple of false start penalities

Re: Bosco vs Mater Dei

It's been a long time since I've been to an MD game, and the last couple of times I went to a CIF Final game MD lost, so I was planning to stay away this year but my buddy invited me and I couldn't say no. Some thoughts: -Parking situation at Cerritos College was kind of a joke. Lots of confused peo...

Re: "PUBLIC" High School Football Reigns Supreme {TEXAS}

I just read the article, seems like the main takeaways are the forced Private vs. Public Playoffs and more red tape for potential transfers. What I'm personally curious about is whether there is competitive equity among the public schools in Texas. In Southern California you take the privates out of...

Re: Taylor King retires

Taylor King is a shinning example of how overbearing parents+pot can borderline ruin someone's life. He's lucky that he got to play a semblance of a professional career, but I feel bad for him given what some of his peers have accomplished in comparison (e.g. Klay Thomas, and Kevin Love).

Re: playoff basketball

Anyway, you think Stanley Johnson will last in the NBA? because MD still has yet to produce a player that will last long in the NBA, even as a bench player. The post MD life for the majority of the programs' players does raise some eyebrows but I would argue that no high school should focus on send...

That player on Santa Margarita (linebacker #32) was directly yelling the same racial slur at MD offensive players after every touchdown his defense surrendered in a 40 point loss in 2016. But yeah, I'm sure some good ol' conditioning work had him realizing the error of his ways!! Shoot, good point,...

College grad letdown

So I had to terminate a few of our new hires who were fresher out of college earlier this week. We weren't their first employers by any means, but their first serious foray into their chosen field. Their biggest issues largely had to deal with overall professionalism and work ethic. Jumping out of t...

Didn't Santa Margarita have a shooting by it a year or two ago? I don't think that's happened anywhere near Mater Dei in the past decade or so.
