Re: A Civil War in the 2018 D1 Play offs

Additional thread hijack...MV and JSerra have never played. Are we ever going to see them face off in the regular season?

Re: JSerra stadium question

They added extra seating so that shouldn’t be an issue. If you show up by 6:15 you won’t have problems finding parking on the academic side. The parking situation is a hell of a lot better than Bosco. Don’t bother trying to find a spot on the football side past 6:00. Extra parking at Kaiser lot, jus...

Re: Trinity League predictions

JSerra has a few ex MD guys who might want some pub this week. Duncan, cannot hang with Bru, man vs boy. It would be a huge win for JSerra and rightly put them at the top of The charts in OC. Since MD lost so bad To Bosco. Agree on Duncan, but he won't be covering Bru anyway. Tarik Luckett lines up...

Re: Trinity League predictions

The Pinnacle tape is good to a point. JSerra was missing two starters in the secondary, Green and Duncan, both who will be present on Friday. The Lions also came out extremely flat. Rattler is an incredible QB though, Elite 11 MVP. Mater Dei's receivers are better.

Re: Trinity League predictions

After watching Servite vs JSerra last week I'm shocked that Servite beat SM. You have to be impressed with the coaching staff's ability to come back from last week and get the team ready to beat the Eagles in their homecoming. I'm close with a number of SM parents and the morale in the program has r...

Re: Mission Viejo to Forfeit 4 Games

It's way too early to try and guess at the brackets, but what the hell. In this week's CIF rankings, MIssion Viejo is #5. If they win league, that would put them in the same quarter-bracket as #4 Oaks Christian. So my guess today would be Mission Viejo gets either Servite or JSerra in the first rou...

Re: Mission Viejo to Forfeit 4 Games

LA Times is reporting that they have informed the Southern Section, just not officially in writing. Not official but sounds like it will be. This begs the bigger question: How do forfeit losses impact seeding?

Re: Orange County's Top 10 QB's 2018

He's not on the stat list on this thread but Caden Bell has improved dramatically since the start of the Trinity League season, especially with McClain healthy and in the lineup. He's up to 16 TD passes with just 3 picks on the season, including 8 TD's and no interceptions in the last two games vers...

Re: Bosco Upset Alert

Of course transfers are a positive factor. There's also a reason those transfers are coming and the head coach is a big factor in that. Culture is important. Additionally, there is a significant difference between getting a host of senior transfers versus sophomores. Mater Dei and JSerra are a conve...

Re: Bosco Upset Alert

One clarification, they weren't going for an onside kick, the kicker just missed it and it looked like an onside kick attempt.

Re: Bosco Upset Alert

The "twenty something transfers" myth is the Eric Sondheimer effect. That number includes all athletic transfers to JSerra, not just football. They had thirteen transfers come to the program. Of that there are 10 that are getting varsity time. It has clearly had an impact but can we stop exaggeratin...

Re: Bosco Upset Alert

I don't think Bosco underestimated JSerra, I feel that their weak non-conference schedule was the factor. JSerra was a huge step up in class. I know the popular narrative is that Bosco didn't play well or overlooked JSerra. I was at the game and the one thing that is very clear is that this is not l...

Re: CIF Divisional Polls 2018

Interesting that Calabasas loses to ranked Trinity team and then falls all the way to 10th, while Norco loses to a lower ranked Trinity league team and barely falls. There is no way a team like Tesoro can hang with Calabasas.

Re: Trinity League Over Rated???

I think the league is what everyone expected. Mater Dei and Bosco are very good. One would have to think that JSerra is probably better than expected. OLU is what we expected. Great on offense but still questions on defense. Based on the mass exodus Servite was probably an under dog vs Norco, so tha...

Re: MD vs Gorman - Round 2

I think this game is going to be a close one. On the Mater Dei side the big question is where are they at with the suspensions and who will play? We know receivers two and three were out last week and one of them is out for sure this week. What other players will be out this week as well? If there a...

Re: Los Angeles Times TOP 25 Pre-Season 2018

Nice to see every Trinity League team except Santa Margarita step up with a tough non-conference schedule. Mater Dei, JSerra, St John Bosco, OLU and Servite all play multiple non-Trinity League teams in the poll. Looks like JSerra plays the most top 25 teams with 7 including two ranked teams from Ar...

Re: Scrimmages This week

I was at the scrimmage as well, varsity was 6-1 in favor of JSerra. It was extremely one-sided, if I was Norco I'd be concerned. They really weren't able to generate any offense and the lone score was the result of a pass interference call followed by a personal foul that put them down close. JSerra...
