Re: Man, , this topic board is dead!

If the board is dead compared to the way it once was at this time of year, it's because so many of the characters that made this place hilarious and informative aren't interested anymore. Pretty simple.

Re: Wow -interesting prep football ranking

hilarious exchange on this topic MDDad and Omar - excuse me but I think you're getting played by some bored HSFB fans it wouldn't surprise me if Fate and Ex don't care at all if MD gets the (LOL) "natty" I hope Negro and Rollinson don't care as much as you boys seem to - they'll be pulling players c...

Re: Bosco vs Mater Dei

Exactly. Many were saying last year that 2017 was the year to beat Bosco; with all their returners they were going to be the team to beat in 2018. Perhaps the quick addition of Bryce Young and Dollars and Criddell made some forget just how big it was going to be to lose Daniels, Brown, and St. Brow...

Re: Bosco vs Mater Dei

MD wins this game. The MD pass defense will shut down DJ and the underachieving Bosco WRs (watch Bowman disappear like he does every big game). Losing Delgado really hurt Bosco. Hutson will draw MD’s attention, no one else will step it up like they need. Don’t see Holani carrying them to victory ei...

Re: Mater Dei-IMG

I take MD and I'll give up to 10 points. As to brotherhood, I can't imagine much on either team (how could there be?), but of what there is, edge is for MD, and that makes a difference. So does home field. MD's QB will have some pressure in this contest, and if he does well, Monarchs comfortably.

Re: Mater Dei-IMG

There is a bigger point being missed here. Yes, everyone is entitled to go wherever they want. No one is disputing one's right to do that. What is being discussed is more of a philosophical question as to what makes for better high school football. Football is already under attack from soccer moms,...

Re: Los Angeles Times TOP 25 Pre-Season 2018

Interesting FriarJoe. Thomas came back to Crespi to what seems like the exact same scenario - a mass exodus of the talent. Except in Crespi's case, I think the school backed out of a lot of tuition help, which was a part of the equation for players bailing. Do you know if the players left before Tho...

Thanks Professor, FBOC, Bick and Shane for your points of view. They are encouraging to this white European male grappling with his own racism (must be, right? I didn't vote for Obama).

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

For the record, this casual observer of your forum thinks most have come down too hard on MD, and not hard enough on Bosco for the situation HSFB D.1 is in. But...... I'm sure this has been addressed, probably numerous times - the crap rolled down hill once Bosco started the mega transfer game, and ...

Glancing through this thread, I'm glad I don't waste time on the political forums.

Embarrassing, what our educational system has cost in $ the past 50 years, an...

Ramon, as an Alum, your post clearly is the reason why I haven't and wont attend another MD game . There was a time when the players reflected the value system of the school, but that is long gone.

head-scratching preseason for the Braves - did no one want to play them? not familiar with the teams they play before league except Chaminade - though they are a top Mission team, they won't provide Bosco with any kind of a challenge the Eagles are almost surely a good step down from last year's tea...

Re: No more playing not true high schools

I'm with the Professor. We're probably from the same era, probably similar in our love of the high school game and our respective schools. If Thomas takes Servite the recruit route, which IMO he has no choice but to do if he wants to come close to competing, I imagine Fate will choke it down and kee...

Re: Black Dawn-Servite Football

If you have been a watcher since '68, you'd know why certain Servite football junkies consider him a god. That was a remarkable turnaround he engineered in his first stint. This is a bigger mountain to climb. A more remarkable turnaround, if accomplished.

C18 - whoa. Cockroachesque.

Re: OC Buckeyes to enroll at Servite instead of Los Al?

I'm thinking Servite didn't hire Thomas back to have what happened at Crespi repeat. We see how "doing it right" worked out in Encino. Trinity, led first by Bosco then outdone by MD, is the poster child for the new top tier HSFB league. They may be leading the way nationwide in all that is wrong in ...

Re: Super Teams

thanks MD Dad

the last two years those were 10, 11, 12th graders combined for the Celts

very low numbers except last year's frosh, and they competed well for Crespi

I'm interested to see if Trinity's other teams make a real push at the two "super teams" in the coming years
