Re: How did this all start?

I believe another contributing factor to these "super" teams is that parents and kids have no allegiance to the "neighborhood" school. Again dating ourselves, we grew up in a neighborhood, knew everyone on the block and logically went to the "local" schools. Now there are magnet schools, in my area ...

Re: Bosco vs Mater Dei

Just my observation In the first meeting Bosco "looked" bigger to me especially on the defensive side. They also appeared faster than the MD skills people. I don't remember Bosco being in 3rd and long, so they had the option of running OR passing for the first down which kept MD on their heels. The ...

Re: Mater Dei girls win D1 volleyball championship

The C.I.F and So Cal games were much harder than the team from Nor Cal

The So Cal Championship went 5 sets with MD coming back from 2 sets down,

They swept the Nor Cal Champ!!!

Re: How did this all start?

Thank you for that and I totally agree, we are watching something I really don’t recognize, I understand kids are bigger, faster than my day, but this is starting to border on the absurd. High school is just a lower level of the college game, public schools REALLY can’t compete ( see MV and CC ) bas...

How did this all start?

I’m not kidding, I’m really interested in knowing. How did this all start? Bosco and MD play at a different level I think we all can agree to that. Years ago they BOTH petty much relied on “feeder schools “ Local Catholic schools in the geographical area and then some Catholic kids out side of that ...

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

I'll tell you where JJ is anti MD After the very bad call against CC, JJ kept pointing out how the score "should be" 7-7, 14-7, 21-7, 28-7,35-7, he was out of his mind that CC was robbed! The register reported this morning that either the ref thought the kid was down ( incorrectly ) OR The ball was ...

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

Logans salary is "chump change"

6 dads at J.Serra chip in 20 grand apiece, done and done

Won't be the $$$, he stays because he gets anyone he "really" wants out there.

Why come here and have to compete

Just ask the JOHNSON currently at MV

Lost more games in 1 year than he did in 3 years at Bosco

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

Thank you for helping me make my point 33% of the top players are from the BIG #, geography for some is the ONLY THING that prevents them from going to the BIG 3 75% of the final 4 are the BIG 3, ONE of the BIG 3 will be C.I.F Champ and State Champ.I appreciate you pointing it out better than I did....

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

I think CC's linemen are the size they are by design ( don't laugh ) Do you notice the splits between them, at least 2 feet. Their offense is not the Drop back pocket style were sizable linemen make sense to matin the pocket. They run first ( small backs ) between those large gaps, if NOT open then ...

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

Didn't mean to mislead, just pointing out how difficult it is to play at the Big 3 UNLESS you are 100% healthy or fully committed, they just move you over and re-load. The advantage for CC is he has miles and miles of area with NO ONE to compete against. There is NO Bosco, MD, J Serra, OLU out there...

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

CC doesn't get ALL the talent, you are correct, they get ALL the talent that matters Just like Bosco, they don't get ALL the talent from the Long Beach area that POLY used to get, they simply get ALL THAT MATTERS, they get the difference makers. You take Bosco's second team send them back to POLY an...

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

Logan isn't going anywhere He OWNS the inland empire, any kid who can play gets into CC, I don't know about district transfers, but any parent who thinks their kid can play moves 9(IF NECESSARY ) into an apartment in the CC neighborhood! There is NO OTHER CHOICE in the I.E. You want to be seen?, You...

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

I don't see MD looking past CC, especially because I think CC has at least a 500 record against MD if not a winning record against MD over the last decade! It's tempting to look ahead, but I don't see it. In fact this game is why the MD Bosco game earlier this season was so important MD would much r...

Re: Corona Centennial vs. Mater Dei

CC is always prepared as Logan is in the top 3 of coaches anywhere. His kids always play fast and hard, run basically the same offensive for the last 7-10 years, they just do it so well they are always in short yardage situations. Watch for what they get on first down, if they are second and 5 it wi...

Re: Mater Dei vs. Mission Viejo

After MD opened the 3rd quarter with a score, MV ran the slowest series of plays I've ever seen, NO HURRY UP OFFENSE It was the" how slow can I go offense," with only ONE goal, RUN THIS CLOCK ...

Re: Mater Dei vs. Mission Viejo

MV and Johnson Quit big time! Third quarter MV took the maximum amount of time between plays ( they acted as if they wanted to keep the ball from MD ) rather than run the hurry up to try and catch up. Better to go down in flames than just roll over. Especially in the last game of the season, what ar...

Re: A Civil War in the 2018 D1 Play offs

MV beats Amat 24-7 while Amat misses 2 very short field goals.

MD beats Amat 42-14 while the first team sits out the 4th quarter

So you conclude that MV beats MD, just curious what do you base that on?

Home field advantage? MD down compared to last year?
