Re: Pride Poise and Courage

A lot of racially coded phrasing I see. I feel sorry for people like Domingo. The world has passed them by and they must feel so alone. Just him and his bile and his hatred. What a sad, pathetic way to live life.

Re: Can someone please explain the CIF's new divisions?

Yes there were updates. The playoff divisions last update on the website says August 9.

Also keep in mind the divisions are based on the last two years of data, not just last year.

Re: oc varsity top 25

Let's get real, MV isn't going to compete with MD or Bosco anytime soon. The top players are going private and it's going to stay that way for the foreseeable future.

Re: St. John Bosco Transfers

That's a common misconception, but it's not true. Privates are held to the same change-of-residence requirements as publics. If an athlete wants to transfer to a private school, he must either (a) move from his current enrollment area into a new one, or (b) sit out the first month of games. This is...

Re: St. John Bosco Transfers

Downtothewire, I completely agree. But when it comes to top-tier or promising athletes, transferring doesn't routinely happen without the CIF's definition of recruiting occurring first. Overeating and getting fat are also two separate things, but one routinely precedes the other. So technically it'...

It's gonna be tough to read if you are looking for total football playing freshmen at each school. A lot of freshmen are playing on the JV level.

Luca, I appreciate the tenor and passion of your post and agree that your alma mater, Loyola, has a long and storied history in the Los Angeles area. I have to ask, however, what rules are they ( Loyola ) observing that these other schools are apparently violating? There are rules governing transfe...

Re: OC Quarterbacks 2017

DTW - I disagree completely. Freshmen DO NOT typically start in these situations like you claim (at least not at a competitive program). Even Daniels didn't start at MD his freshman year until McDonald went out with an injury. Name a current D1 QB who did (and even they played behind non-D1 QBs!)? ...

Re: OC Quarterbacks 2017

Yes, top freshman players, especially at the QB position, win these types of battles all the time. I think some people are thrown off by Noah's size, but in HS you can be an effective QB at 5'8. Simply put, Noah gives them the best chance to win. Just my opinion, of course.

Re: OC Quarterbacks 2017

@Sweetness34 Fifita is way too small to start when he becomes a freshman next season. D2 (especially in that league) is way too competitive. Plus the kid above him will likely be good enough to beat him out. I bet Fifita doesn't start till his junior year. That is not a bad thing. The kid needs a f...

Re: Did MD FB Program Sell Their Soul?

Finally, MD has done a tremendous job of hiring coaches who bring with them their super travel team full of all star players their freshmen year. No need for many transfers. I get it. My original premise is, in doing so, MD completely changed their culture and abandoned its core principles and valu...
