Sorry, what I meant was if a new OC has been hired.

From my understanding they already have replaced the position coaches. Maybe Bick can answer if Willy Puga has been replaced.

Re: New Servite Offensive Coordinator

Every major skill player departed the program. Its all linemen and that's about it. Servite is literally starting over from scratch. The skill players right now are any freshmen from last year that didn't leave, the JV players that probably didn't get much in the way of playing time, and a few kids ...

Re: Mater Dei Scared of IMG

Angel Stadium is not available in September, so the only way to double the capacity would be to move the game to the Stub Hub Center. Unfortunately, that wouldn't also double the attendance . With a hundred other high school games that night, and the game surely being televised, and IMG bringing ve...

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

I am seriously surprised this has hit 100+ responses and my guess is if this was any other school besides Servite, it would have been a blip on the radar. It seems like it wasn't working out for whatever reason and we'll never know all the particulars. But the bottom line... Los Al is still in very ...

Re: Mater Dei Scared of IMG

They would be better served to move this game to a bigger venue. They'd essily double the capacity of the Santa Ana Bowl at another stadium.

That's the name of the game. Get talent or get left behind. If you're the head coach of a top program, which do you want to do?

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

This another example of private advantage. All these club kids from either one of these programs could not all go to MV/Edison or other public school without them all moving to the same area. This is why only MV is the only public school team in OC that can beat a Trinity team. Well Los Al was abou...

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

The pipeline is about relationships and trust. Kids from the IE Ducks apparently have developed a relationship and trust in Pat Dubar, and that's how the pipeline happens. Same thing with these kids from OC Buckeyes, although from what I understand is the Buckeyes have played together for years. The...

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

When I.E. Ducks players enrolled at Mater Dei in some numbers, all hell broke lose on this forum. When O.C. Buckeye players enroll at Servite in twice the numbers, it's no big deal. One could almost conclude that's an interesting study in hypocrite psychology. I recall there being a discussion duri...

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

This thread is not about my daily life - it is about a rumor that directly questions some Servite behavior. So let's get back on topic. How ethical is Servite? Mater Dei. :thumbsup: What ethical misbehavior is in question on Servite's part? If what I heard is true, some lower level kids transferred...

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

I don't get how this is a big deal. It isn't. This was a rant started by someone who clearly has an axe to grind against Servite and/or Trinity League teams in general. If it's only a couple of freshmen, JV kids, and an 8th grade team that hasn't even hit high school yet, why would this be a big de...

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

You are right, why have "these kids" who play "school tag" use tax payer money? Much better that they attend private Catholic schools where money is raised from the backs of parents and the "school's faithful." Donors buy the success they want at those schools. Keep tax money for public purposes. P...

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

I would think these critics would prefer these kids attend private schools so at least they aren't burning up tax payer money while they play "school tag". Honestly, all this "morality" business just sounds like coded language for something else....racism, classism, pietism, whatever. Just come out ...

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

Are you sure? Our local high school HC got in trouble for having 8th graders working out at the high school with the high school team. It is a different state though so maybe... Interesting though that the picture's caption says "in the gym with a national champ ." Must be a state rule then. I know...

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

It worked out for Los Al families who didn't want to play in the new age of football and wanted their kids on the field. Servite gets a good crop of talented kids for the rebuild. And the OC Buckeyes get to play in the Trinity League, which it sounds like they wanted to anyway. Sounds like a win-win...
