Re: Coaching changes?

If the subject was Poly, perhaps I would have put it up front. Couldn’t tell ya if Coach Lara is a great coach or a mediocre one, but he’s got championships, more than most and that should count for something. He was a big part of a great era.

Re: Coaching changes?

The court of public opinion on Coach Lara is interesting if not predictable. I recall back when he was at Poly, more than a few people would criticize his coaching abilities. There were quite a few Trinity league fans here who, perhaps by trying to rationalize their losses to Poly or just plain alwa...

Re: Orange County Football Signing

Yes I know it’s OC, but here’s some Bosco college acceptances. Three young men, one Navy, one Air Force, one West Point from senior class is pretty darn impressive. For a school that doesn’t care about grades or character as some like to say, it’s a bit of a miracle I guess. It kind of blows up that...

Re: Trinity league basketball

Taking into account what I discovered here, I have changed my mind, Mater Dei basketball/coaching/players are not lacking in anything. Fact is, reaching NBA status is just plain difficult, and I see no anomalies.

Re: Trinity league basketball

Respectfully disagree with DBTG and watcher. Seems to me that over the decades MD players are very well polished/ coached. They often have therefore come closer to maxing out on their talents. Players from other programs may not be as well coached in high school, but many times it allows for continu...

Re: O.C. Wrestling

I stand corrected. It’s a fantastic rivalry. There are some really defined style differences team wise that make for great competition. In last ten years there have been upsets, close matches and some routs and you never know what’s going to happen.

Re: O.C. Wrestling

Bosco finished 5th in state for 2019. Two state champions, Nathan Haas and Sonny Santiago and almost a third with Cael Valencia who lost 8-7 decision.
Good trinity league representation for Servite and Bosco. Losing twice in same season to Servite will definitely keep rivalry strong.

Re: Bosco Youth Football Pipeline

Yes clearly It’s also clear that Covington Catholic boys are racist and Jussie Smollet is a victim. “Suppose one reads a story of filthy atrocities in the paper. Then suppose that something turns up suggesting that the story might not be quite true, or not quite so bad as it was made out. Is one's f...

Isn’t JSerra the home team? Is it because you think Oaks will want to postpone to take care of matters at home?

Are you sure about this Pope? I was trying for some light hearted humor with the Frazier and Campanis line. Guess you’re not in the mood. Like I said, chip on shoulder

Re: Bosco vs Mater Dei

I know a guy from the Bronx, big yankee fan. He and I were chatting one day with a New Englander, Red Sox fan as you might expect, and the Sox fan was having a heated debate about Yankees v Red Sox ( this was before Sox won a World Series this century). Well it was half a heated debate because the B...
