Game won’t be competitive. Watching MV in person was enlightening. They are a solid overall team that does various things well and the QB is a hell of an athlete. However their lack of passing game and the porous secondary is going to get them killed Friday by at least 5-6 TDs, depending on when the...

Re: D1 Projections

With 64 teams, you are bound to have highly ranked teams. When looking at it per capita, the CA D1 8 team bracket is tougher. Hard to compare hard numbers when comparing an 8 team bracket to a 64 team bracket. Maybe we could use the average ranking of the teams in the tournament and using that I can...

Re: D1 Projections

I don’t think MD-Amat will be competitive in any way. That wasn’t my point. I know it’s going to be a blowout and that Amat hasn’t beat anyone good. My point is that the top playoff bracket in CA or maybe America has one game where the consensus is that there may be 1 first round game that just migh...

Re: D1 Projections

What a sad state of affairs. MD is facing a 9-1 mission league champ and we are debating when the starters will be pulled for MD. There isn’t even a hint of anyone thinking the game could be competitive at all.

Re: Servite at Mission

First, it’s well beyond a trinity league issue. Second, there is nothing wrong with MDDad pointing out the silliness of the “suspension”, which lacks such teeth that Bosco and the “suspended” coach knowingly flaunt it in public and on social media as though nothing changed since they know no consequ...

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

While I agree with you, the competitive inequity in D1 is a different issue than the 487 playoff divisions we all hate. We might need a Narbonne type situation to bring one or both super teams back to earth. There is already a tiny chink in the armor of Bosco when their assistant to the assistant an...

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

Let’s start with less than 14 divisions which necessitates about 200 playoff teams which then requires a bunch of teams that don’t belong in the playoffs filling out brackets.

Re: Narbonne football program

Well Bosco did get a coach suspended by CIF so that’s something. It’s not being publicized much but CIF came down on the particular coach instead of the school that employs him.

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

Look, there is no good system as long as there are super club football teams and schools that will support the club football approach to football. Look at Nevada where Bishop Gorman has turned the state playoff system into a total joke for a decade. We are essentially there in California at least wi...

Re: Evaluating (Mythical) National Title Contenders

Does it really matter who wins this game? The only one that matters is the Nov 30 game in the finals. These are the top 2 seeds regardless and no one will care about this game on Nov 30 anyway as you can win state or the “Natty” without winning 11/30.

Overman is out for a while. Cerritos was about money. OCC is a better venue to watch a game anyway.

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

Mission has an argument for #3 if they finish a dominant 10-0. I have no issue with that. CC’s loss to MD means zero but the Cathedral Catholic loss does lower their esteem a bit. I’d much rather be a 6 seed than a 4 or 5 seed. The 4 or 5 seed has MD and a guaranteed beat down waiting for them in th...

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

No possibility anyone else sneaks in there? Norco? Sierra Canyon? Are JSerra and Servite stuck in D1 now? Does the loser of JSerra/Servite also have to drop 1 game to Olu or SM to escape D1?

Bosco will just bring in another crop of transfers to fill the voids. That’s what they do.

Re: Open/D1 Playoff Thoughts

Good try. But don’t the CIF rankings govern this? With Servite’s close loss to Bosco it’s hard to imagine even a 4 loss Servite team doesn’t stay in that top 8 somehow (although I hope they would be in D2). Some of these probable teams may not have the resume to be ranked in the top 8 except maybe A...

Re: Servite vs Bosco

I was not implying that Bosco committed penalties on purpose. Just that it’s a strange rule to keep re-starting the game clock when it’s obvious that the offense is trying to run out the clock. Why not run the play clock down to 1 second and commit a false start? Rinse and repeat until the time runs...

Re: Servite vs Bosco

What did we learn tonight? When running out a game clock, just keep committing offensive penalties. 1st down....Waste 30 seconds...run play and commit penalty...penalty called...ball re-set and game clock goes down another 30 seconds...keep doing that and you never have to advance the ball but the c...
