Re: Trinity league basketball

Whispers - is Servite going to beat MD in hoops for the first time since Eddie Rubio danced on their graves in '91?

Re: The New and Still Luved by ALL MD Prep program

So strange to see people post, "It's the New Era, just get over it". A 100-year Southern California tradition, that people loved, has basically been destroyed, and no one is trying to stop it. Not only that, its actually terrible business, too. No one is going to go to these games. OCHSFB is a farce...

Re: JSerra - Servite

Servite stinks - starts at the top. They hired a small-time coach that made his mark in an area that is never going to feed players to Servite. It's not like Troy Thomas is thriving though either. Probably the real key to Servite's run was Frank Khalil. Runs in cycles though, one day, the right coac...

It's a shame that it has come to this. The lesson here is the same as always, Mater Dei ruins everything.

Re: St. Paul vs Riverside ND

52 for Notre Dame was rag dolling the Swordsmen. St. Paul may have started the fight, but I don't think I'd say they won the fight. Kind of a typical St. Paul dust-up in that regard.

St. Paul vs Riverside ND

Does anybody have video of the mele?

Nice to know that St. Paul will never change. God Bless those lunatics.


Nice showing by Friars Friday btw (I didnt see it - Church event) - for Coach Meyer's sake, I hope a loss isnt the high-water mark for his tenure.

Re: Servite Football 2015

SInce 1980 Servite trails MD 5-4 in D1 CIF Championships. When Servite peaks - it tends to win big, when it falls, it tends to fall a little further than MD. The program will lift again. Success is usually tied to the momentum of stringing a few really good classes together. The coaching and the adm...

Re: Servite Football 2015

God what an awful, stupid schedule for a completely average HSFB program. History will recall what it recalls, but I propose the downfall of Servite FB is tied directly to the Senior class of the 2012 fb season (2013 grads). If Servite has ANY usable juniors on the 2011 team they probably 3-peat as ...

Re: Servite Football Parents Meeting

Great sentiments LH. I will say Trinity League FB has become an Arms Race and its an Arms Race we're currently trailing well behind in. Coach's first order of business should be getting the best PAL and IE athletes to come to Servite. Without better players this hiring will fail. As for the respect ...

AJ Gass leaves Servite for Bakersfield

Watching a talented Servite defense get overrun this year, I am petrified to think how Garces will defend against Reno Hightower next year. He was in over his skis at Servite as far as being the head coach. From what I know of AJ, which is mostly through friends of his, he seemed like a pretty stand...

Re: Will AJ Gass be back next year?

AJ Gass was a horrible hire - we went from having a top 2 coach in the league to the worst. The team was playing for the state title 4 years ago. How on Earth does that success equate to an "on the job training" type hire? In terms of fixing the problem through firing, that won't work either. The so...

Re: Mater Dei vs. Servite

How sad can I be? We ended the streak, won a gang of league titles, won 2 CIF titles ( 2 more than MDs won since the Trinity formed). Give me that deal 10 years ago - I take it... all day. Friars need to get a freshman class in there that mashes, I dont know how they do it - but they need to do it. ...

Re: Mater Dei vs. Servite

Can't say a lot about the gameplan - Servite's best player got hurt in the 1st quarter - this isnt the NFL - teams dont draw up gameplans assuming their best player will be hurt.

Unfortunately, tonight will be Servite's best look at a win against MD for a long time. The program has slipped...

Put together a Orange County or LA County all-star team and those squads slaughter DLS and BG. Slaughter - 4-5 TD spreads. The area is supplying Oregon, USC, UCLA, Alabama, Florida and Arizona State with their Quarterbacks for 2015. Oh and Westlake's QB is the #1 2016 QB. Footballfan - I despise you...

Re: Servite vs. De la Salle

Fair to say that if teams 2-6 from the Trinity played teams 2-6 from DLS's and BG's leagues the Trinity record would be 5-0 and potentially 25-0 if each of 2-6 played each of 2-6. So no, the Trinity League is not overrated, it is a collection of excellent HSFB programs that is unquestionably in the ...

Just citing numbers Templar. Servite is taking too many transfers, but Bosco and Gorman are peerless in that regard.
Thanks for not mentioning that I complimented MD in the post as well - a school which I hate with every fiber in my body.

Re: Servite vs. Bishop Gorman

Gorman has gone "Full Mater Dei" in its application the late 80s early 90s MD hoops model to football. Bosco is in the same camp. Servite has taken a half measure of the MD hoops model, and MD, lately, seems to be a bit more dignified in its approach (probably a function o stache getting older and M...
