The self-proclaimed best player in PA?

I guess if he bragged he was the best player in the world that would make it even harder to understand?
Thumbs up!

Re: Bosco Unanimous #1 National Champions

To be fair, when Bosco loses to MD, I feel like I need therapy sometimes. I sign of a true fan.

Omar clearly yanking some chains (I assume in good fun). Best to not take the bait.

Re: Evaluating (Mythical) National Title Contenders

The fact that MD played a very strong national schedule this year will benefit Bosco in the end from a ratings standpoint. Bosco last year didn't have the same national strength of schedule that MD had this year.

Re: The Trinity League v. The United States of America

Who knows how these games are determined.

SJB may have wanted to avoid playing on Saturday in this case as they have a game the following Friday in Hawaii against Mililani.

They'll be traveling to Hawaii early in the week next week.

Re: Transfer News? It’s that time of year again!

Good info on the transfers and how they are working out RedPill. It's hard to keep up on the xfers and who's playing vs not playing. Clearly transfers are here to stay given that the CIF member schools decided NOT to make any substantive changes to the transfer rules when they recently debated this ...

Re: The Next Saint John Bosco Quarterback

I completely agree with Al.

As a parent, holding your child back for athletic reasons really gets under my skin! I try not to judge families that do this, but it's hard!

Re: Transfer News? It’s that time of year again!

Earnest Greene and Max Gibbs should not be considered transfers. They've been at SJB since freshmen year. Them not playing on varsity last year does not make them like a transfer. They are just kids moving through the program.

Re: "Transfers" SS Survey Says, "71.5% Want Rules Adjusted"

The reality is any substantive restriction to transfers will translate to lawsuits against schools and/or CIF. And this will result in loosening of the rule set. Even in the case where the CIF/Schools have a justified legal position. They won't want to bear the legal cost of defending themselves. Is...

Re: Bosco vs Mater Dei

BBB response to losing an argument is insulting and childish.

BBB's paraphrased response: "I'm angry! And you're a liar! And a bad parent!"

Me thinks you still need some parenting BBB.

Re: Bosco vs Mater Dei

Yes, the Apostles were not Catholic! The original all male catholic school admitted non Catholics! Excellent point Has it not been a long standing priority of the Catholicism to convert and add more faithful to the ranks? Allowing and even encouraging non Catholics to attend is entirely consistent w...

Re: Mission Viejo Football. Any news?

My son was a varsity starter on the offensive line (graduated in 2015). I can tell you from personal experience he had plenty of homework to do. Both in and out of football season.

Re: Track and Field top marks

Didn't Servite first steal them from Mater Dei, or do you apply a different verb in that case? Simplistic argumentation. "Stole". Life is more complex than the binary thinking of "good" vs "evil". Maybe the kids wanted to leave for personal reasons. Or maybe they didn't like where the Servite footb...
