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

How is it nonsense? Is Harvard or Yale preventing people from doing what they want or living their dream or do they simply have enrollment standards? So anytime you don’t open the floodgates to your institution to everyone without any standard, then you are against school choice? Your argument is we...

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

Just because something is legal does not make it right or good for the game. Just because something is permitted, doesn’t make it good for the athlete or the game. We cannot always rely on the rule makers to legislate every conceivable possible behavior under the sun. At some point there should be s...

Re: Brent vieselmeyer resigns

I agree. I don’t think it’s a crazy idea. These unusual quirky offenses do trouble teams with far superior talent.

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

The “guy who was going to play QB” was never going to actually play QB at Mater Dei. Everyone knew that. It was a pipe dream to think Mater Dei was going to let a program guy take over the reigns at QB.

Re: Evaluating (Mythical) National Title Contenders

Who cares? Bosco will be #1 in enough polls and they will put up a banner regardless of whether it is unanimous or not. It’s a silly debate and no one really cares.

Re: Mater Dei vs. St. John Bosco V

The Monarchs strangely draw the line there on transfers. They’ll take rent-a-player senior public school players for a semester who have zero intention of graduating from Mater Dei but god forbid they take another Trinity league player. To each his own...it’s just an odd stance to take.

Re: Who is the new incoming Elite QB for Mater Dei?

How sad that no one even considers the possibility that Mater Dei would just go with the existing QB that they have in the program. I wonder if that kid and his parents are delusional enough to think he might actually play next year.

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...
